'Dr. Seuss' How the Grinch Stole Christmas': Everything you need to know

In the era of the reset button, everybody loves a do-over, especially baby boomers, who can turn to spas, smoothies, surgeons and Spanx to keep reliving their eternal youth.

And no boomer loves a mulligan better than that Yuletide gremlin, the Grinch.

Born fully grown in Dr. Seuss' book "How the Grinch Stole Christmas!" in 1957, then given a new animated life by Chuck Jones in 1966 (there was a Jim Carrey movie version in 2000, but we'll leave that one unwrapped under the tree), everybody's favorite holiday crank has been terrorizing the sweet Whos of Whoville since the Cold War and shows no signs of slowing down now.

In all that time, two things have never changed about the Grinch: He starts out mad, then he gets glad. What happens in the middle is Christmas, which even old Grinchy-claws decries as an overcommercialized holiday, full of clanging bells and crashing cymbals.

Cheryl Ladd is a 'much more modern' Mrs. Santa Claus in Disney video

  • Pop2it
Cheryl Ladd is living proof that one of Charlie's Angels also can be Mrs. Santa Claus.

Soon after the classic female-detective show's "Complete Series" DVD release, the actress plays Father Christmas' spouse as Disney's direct-to-video offering "Santa Paws 2: The Santa Pups" debuts Tuesday (Nov. 20). The title dogs talk, thanks to a voice cast that includes Richard Kind ("Argo") and Tom Everett Scott ("That Thing You Do!"), but it's hard to steal a movie totally from a Ladd clad as Mrs. Claus.

"I loved the script," she tells Zap2it, "and when I met with the producers, they kind of looked at me and said, 'You know, you're a little out-of-the-box.' I knew mine wouldn't be the first name that came to mind for Mrs. Santa Claus, but they liked the idea of reinventing her and having her with more energy.

"She's kind of a more Mary Poppins-y character,

‘Cinderella’ and ‘Santa Paws 2′ direct-to-dvd releases for the die-hard princess and dog lovers only

  • SoundOnSight
Blu-ray technology is a blessing and a curse. Because it’s now the standard in home media creation and distribution, the basis behind this innovation has perhaps become obscured. Some of the greatest films of all time have been given new life on Blu-ray, as recently as last week, for example. (One can only imagine how exquisite Lawrence of Arabia looks in high definition.) But film studios aren’t selective. Just about everything goes on Blu-ray now, for better or worse. So, the Walt Disney Company traffics in both the good and the…well, not-so-good. This week, they’ve offered up old and new entries in their direct-to-dvd catalog. Coming to Blu-ray for the first time is a duo of sequels, Cinderella II: Dreams Come True and Cinderella III: A Twist in Time. Santa Paws 2: The Santa Pups, conversely, is a new film out right in time for the holiday season.
