Dr. Seuss' How the Grinch Stole Christmas
By DAVID WEINER
December 03, 2012
Exquisitely narrated by Boris Karloff, Dr. Seuss' humbug homage to the true spirit of Christmas is especially memorable for its hand-drawn animated characters by Bugs Bunny/Looney Tunes artist Chuck Jones. Determined to steal every Christmas present and trinket from the denizens of Whoville with the help of his reluctant pooch Max, the cold-hearted Grinch poses as St. Nick to do the dastardly deed. Despite succeeding at the task, he learns that Christmas "doesn't come from a store," and perhaps it "means a little bit more." Featuring the song You're a Mean One, Mr. Grinch (sung by Thurl Ravenscroft, the voice of Tony the Tiger), the special originally aired in 1966.
