Charming yuletide classic

"Every Who down in Whoville liked Christmas a lot, but the Grinch, who lived just north of Whoville - did not."

The name Theodor Geisel may not mean much to you, but the name "Dr. Seuss" certainly should. Born Theodor Seuss Geisel, the acclaimed author and illustrator was responsible for more than 60 best-selling books which introduced his young readers to new worlds and creatures. ... read more

This is twenty-five minutes of absolute perfection. A hugely successful artistic marriage between the adapter and source material, How the Grinch Stole Christmas is as much of a mighty, towering classic as the beloved Dr. Seuss book.   For me, this is perennial viewing.

Bitter and hateful, the Grinch is irritated at the thought of the nearby village having a happy time celebrating Christmas. So disguised as Santa Claus, with his dog made to look like a reindeer, he raids the village to steal all the Christmas things. The village is sure to have a sad Christmas this year.

"Un lindo especial navideño adaptado de un cuento infantil que trae un bello mensaje del verdadero significado de la navidad. No es tan maravillosa como muchos dicen, pero sigue siendo mejor que la versión Live-Action con Jim Carrey."

How the Grinch Stole Christmas

“This is twenty-five minutes of absolute perfection. A hugely successful artistic marriage between the adapter and source material, How the Grinch Stole Christmas is as much of a mighty, towering classic as the beloved Dr. Seuss book.   For me, this is perennial viewing. Christmas is never quite complete without a few viewing experiences every year – A Charlie Brown Christmas, Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer, and this, which may be my favorite of the lot. Jones and Seuss merge beautifully, balancing out the weirdness and idiosyncrasies in each other’s work to create something vital and wonderfully alive.   No offense to Ron Howard’s 2000 live action version, but this is the only one you’ll ever need to watch. It’s a model of absolute economy, moving through the story with a f” read more

WHY IT'S HERE: The dream union of Chuck Jones and Dr. Seuss had been brought together previously for the short Private Snafu army training cartoons but this TV Christmas special based "
