Trivia

This is the first Dr. Seuss special to have music from Joe Raposo. The music is orchestral, somewhat like Eugene Poddany's music, and unlike Dean Elliott's jazz-themed music. See more »

One of Seuss' Finest
20 September 2002 | by See all my reviews

I absolutely love this cartoon...only gripe...it's a little scary for really little kids. It's not really like How the Grinch Stole Christmas, even though it does involve Whos and Whoville, but I like how it's more like the other Dr. Seuss cartoons than the Grinch Christmas special. (But don't get me wrong... I love that one too!)
