Christmas Countdown: How the Grinch Stole Christmas! (1966)

December 7, 2011

Every day from December 1st to 24th, we will be counting down to Christmas by profiling holiday classics both old and new.  Arranged in chronological order, these are some of our favourites to watch every year.  Enjoy!

The beloved books of Dr. Seuss have gotten many animated adaptations over the years, but the most famous of them all is the 1966 TV special How the Grinch Stole Christmas!  There are just so many memorable moments in this wonderful 26 minute short film, that it’s hard to find anyone who doesn’t rank it among the absolute essentials of the season.  Filled with great music and an iconic rhyming narration read by Boris Karloff, this is a beautifully animated classic that hasn’t faded over the years.
