Great, but nothing to do with Halloween
2 March 2002 | by See all my reviews

This was originally called "Halloween is Grinch Night", but was probably changed after it occurred to the producers that it had nothing to do with Halloween.

Has great music, great plotline, and that Wuzzy Wuzu is cute! The animation's more Dr. Seuss-y than in other grinch 'toons, but it's not as good as How the Grinch Stole Christmas!

There are continuity issues when you compare this one to the Christmas one, but you'll have to watch both of them to figure out what I mean.
