Classic Christmas Animated Special

by Cliff on 11/27/2013

This is arguably the best Christmas animated special ever produced. The story and animation are superb and contains three great catchy songs. The transfer to Blu-ray seems to be well done. There are also many features about bringing the book to TV. Read More

This joyous, heart-tickling holiday event based on Dr. Seuss’ beloved book and featuring the voice of Boris Karloff has delighted viewers of all ages since its 1966 debut.

Or does Christmas… perhaps… mean a little bit more? Bring home this gloriously remastered 50th Anniversary Deluxe Edition that includes a sleigh load of bonus goodies – and let the green meanie Grinch take his rightful place alongside Ebenezer Scrooge and George Bailey (It’s a Wonderful Life) as a timeless symbol of the season to be jolly. Merry Grinchmas!

Editors Note
Note With the talents of Chuck Jones, Boris Karloff, and Dr. Seuss combined, there was almost no way this could be anything but an instant classic. Watched regularly every holiday season and beloved by children and cynical adults alike, this animated gem is just that and more. Boris Karloff narrates and stars as the odious Mr. Grinch, the sinister green monster who plots to steal all the Christmas presents in the town of Whoville. All goes well with his dastardly plan until little Cindy Loo Who (who was no more than two) gums up the works with her innocent Christmas spirit. Jones directed, with Karloff supplying the sweetly sinister narration and voice of the Grinch. The story is from the book by Dr. Seuss. Thurl Ravenscroft (of "Tony the Tiger" breakfast commercial fame) provides the memorable bass singing voice for the tune "You're a Mean One, Mister Grinch." Filled with close attention to comic detail, memorable characterizations, and delightful wordplay, this is essential holiday viewing for the whole family.
Plot Summary
Summary The animation talent of Chuck Jones combined with the delightful prose of the great Dr. Seuss results in a Christmas cartoon classic that will make even the most resolute cynic warm to its sneaky holiday message. Horror icon Boris Karloff supplies the voice of the Grinch, who plans on spitefully ruining Christmas for the town of Whoville by stealing all the presents. It's great, mischievous fun plotting along with this diabolical humbug, and ultimately moving as he warms to the spirit of Christmas.
