Dr Seuss and Chuck Jones, two legends of storytelling, teamed up in 1966 to bring this modern classic to life. Taking the short verse story and converting it into the television classic How The Grinch Stole Christmas.
The Grinch is a foul character living up on a mountain. He dislikes all the Who’s in Whoville’s making merry with Christmas. So he decides to do something about it.
This entire tale of hatred and love and redemption is spellbindingly told to us by the elder horror master Boris Karloff. The gravitas of his voice makes the creepy parts creepier. And the turn at the end, brings lightness to his inflections.
The malady causing the Grinch’s troubles and turmoils is diagnosed as having a heart two sizes to small. The ending resolves so many problems, and the heart one is key here. Tis truly wonderful.
The Grinch is one of two famous characters who attain redemption at Christmas. The other is good old Scrooge. Both are favourites.
P.S. How The Grinch Stole Christmas is copyright 2012 to Turner Entertainment.
P.P.S. It is 24 days till Christmas!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
