I like the part when the Cat calls the grinch Mr. Green face!!! I have watched this movie about 5 times since my dad bought it yesterday 4 me! and will watch it again 2-night after dinner!!! I also got Grinch Night the Halloween special of the Grinch and love them both! but The Grinch Grinches the Cat in the Hat is the best because I have been looking for that movie ever since last year!!!!
