Bizarre Grinch Special, 20 January 2012
Author: Kristie Ann Webb from Bastrop, Louisiana

Let's get the record straight. I love "How The Grinch Stole Christmas". It's my favorite special ever since I was a little girl. Man, it's such a warm classic. "The Grinch Grinches The Cat in The Hat" was not as warm as the Christmas special, but it had its moments. "Halloween is Grinch Night", on the other hand, is beyond charming. It's pretty bizarre. However, the additional nonsense is the only abomination in this special. It's bad enough when this little who boy enters the Grinch's wagon, which is filled with demons, singing a lousy song. Unlike the other two Grinch specials, the Grinch never changed his wicked ways on here. The Halloween Grinch special suffered a great deal between the other two Grinch specials, but I will give the director credit for the way the Grinch is drawn. If you are an adult, you'll find out how bizarre this special is.
