In my opinion, this is an excellent holiday special. However, I couldn't stand the fact that the Grinch (voice of Boris Karloff) wanted to have nothing to do with Whoville's Christmas celebration and steal it.

In conclusion, I highly recommend this excellent remake of a holiday classic to everyone, especially all you Dr. Seuss fans who have not seen it. When you see it, prepare to smile and have a good time.
