Without this Dr. Seuss animated classic, we wouldn’t have had the massive wave of Christmas Specials that came after it; and its all thanks to Chuck Jones animation and Boris Karloff’s narration! A grumpy hermit hatches a plan to steal Christmas from the Whos of Whoville. As you already know the important message is Christmas is not about material possessions; its about family. Something the live-action adaptation tried to expand on, but with less of an impact. And who can forget the classic songs “Welcome Christmas,” “Trim up the Tree” and “You’re a Mean One, Mr. Grinch.” A worthy recommendation for Christmas!
