The animation talent of Chuck Jones combined with the delightful prose of the great Dr. Seuss results in a Christmas cartoon classic that will make even the most resolute cynic warm to its sneaky holiday message. Horror icon Boris Karloff supplies the voice of the Grinch, who plans on spitefully ruining Christmas for the town of Whoville by stealing all the presents. It's great, mischievous fun plotting along with this diabolical humbug, and ultimately moving as he warms to the spirit of Christmas.
Boris Karloff narrates this enchanting Dr. Seuss tale in which the green, mean-hearted Grinch tries to literally steal Christmas from Whoville by stealing their gifts and their Christmas spirit.
Television premiere: December 23, 1966.
