Bitter and hateful, the Grinch is irritated at the thought of the nearby village having a happy time celebrating Christmas. So disguised as Santa Claus, with his dog made to look like a reindeer, he raids the village to steal all the Christmas things. The village is sure to have a sad Christmas this year.Written by
In the last scene of the Grinch carving Roast Beast, as he passes the plate to Cindy-Lou Who, and she hands the plate to Max the dog, the Grinch's eyes turn from blue to red (for a split second) and then return the blue. See more »
Every Who down in Whoville liked Christmas a lot, but the Grinch, who lived just north of Whoville - did not. The Grinch hated Christmas - the whole Christmas season. Now, please don't ask why; no one quite knows the reason. It could be, perhaps, that his shoes were too tight. Or it could be that his head wasn't screwed on just right. But I think that the most likely reason of all... may have been that his heart was two sizes too small. But, whatever the reason, his heart or his ...

The complete credit for Boris Karloff in the opening credits reads as follows: "the sounds of the Grinch are by Boris Karloff... and read by Boris Karloff too!" See more »
In 1994, "How The Grinch Stole Christmas!" was shown on TNT as an hour long special with a "behind-the-scenes" documentary that followed immediately after the end of the cartoon. This version was not available after the host, Phil Hartman, was murdered. The 30min documentary is available on the DVD. See more »
Dr. Suess + Chuck Jones equals to a classic cartoon.
This has been a favorite Holiday cartoon since I was a kid.
Not only is it based off of a Dr. Suess book, the whole cartoon is done with Chuck Jones' Style.
Plus Boris Karloff is the voice of the grinch, and the Grinch song is sang by the guy who originally did Tony the Tiger.
The story involves this town of Whoville with citizens known as Whos. They love Christmas a lot. But the Grinch who lived high on a mountain top did not. He hates Christmas and the Whos so much he plans to steal it from the Whos. By dressing up as Santa Claus and rob every thing the Whos own.
Has the stuff you'd find in an average Chuck Jones cartoon. Including the style of the characters, Wille Coyoate like gizmos and Gadgets, and plenty of comedic elements.
The story to it is perfect. It's very memorable and enjoyable to see again and again.
It's highly recommend to Dr. Suess, Chuck Jones, Animation, and Holiday Fans.
It's a great Holiday Toon.
