Overview

Dr. Seuss' How the Grinch Stole Christmas was a popular children's book during the late '50s and early '60s, but it achieved a new level of acclaim in 1966 when it first appeared as a television special. Featuring a pitch-perfect cast -- direction and production by Warner Bros. veteran Chuck Jones, narration by Boris Karloff, and the immortal voice veteran Thurl Ravenscroft singing "You're a Mean One, Mr. Grinch" -- the special packs a lot of material and special moments into its brief 28 minutes. The original LP soundtrack had some slight differences from the television special, but subsequent versions moved closer to the television version, and the program works perfectly as a narrative story. Often anointed or voted the most popular Christmas special of all time, How the Grinch Stole Christmas isn't just a holiday classic -- it's a classic, period.
