The 1933 Toronto Argonauts season was the 47th season for the team since the franchise's inception in 1873. The team finished in second place in the Interprovincial Rugby Football Union with a 4–2–0 record and qualified for the playoffs for the first time since 1922. The ten-year drought was, and continues to be, the longest playoff drought in franchise history. In the playoffs, the Argonauts defeated the Montreal AAA Winged Wheelers in a two-game total-points IRFU Final series before winning the Grey Cup Semi-Final over the Winnipeg 'Pegs. The Argonauts faced the Sarnia Imperials in the 21st Grey Cup game, which was the first, and thus far only, championship game to be played in Sarnia, Ontario. The Argonauts won the franchise's third Grey Cup championship by a score of 4-3, which ties for the lowest scoring Grey Cup game ever.
