Product Details

Product Description

Every who down in Who-ville likes Christmas a lot, but the Grinch who lived just north of Who-ville did NOT! So the cuddly as a cactus Grinch (with termites in his smile and garlic in his soul) tries to wipe out Christmas for the cheerful Who-villains, only to discover: maybe Christmas, he thought doesn't come from as store. Maybe Christmas perhaps means a little bit more! Magnificently narrated by Boris Karloff and animated by cartoon legend Chuck Jones, it's an award-winning Who-roast-beast-feast of a holiday classic! "Accept no substitutes. The 1966 television adaptation of Dr. Seuss' timeless book How the Grinch Stole Christmas!--about an anti-Santa who tries to heist the holiday only to learn a powerful lesson--is a classic in its own right, and looking better than ever in its 50th Birthday Deluxe Edition. (For those doing the math, the 50 years is counting from the book's 1957 publishing date rather than the show's broadcast date.) The most significant improvement is in the digital transfer, cleaning up fuzz and specks and restoring the proper colors to the program. While the awful earlier DVDs showed the Grinch in a mustard-yellow color, this edition restores his proper green gleam. Special features are mostly ported over from the previous DVD--the Horton Hears a Who program, a featurette on the songs, Phil Hartman's special edition version, pencil tests, etc. minus the commentary track--but there is a new 15-minute featurette, "Dr. Seuss and the Grinch: From Whoville to Hollywood." --David Horiuchi Special Features: Includes "Horton Hears A Who" New featurette "Dr. Seuss and the Grinch - From Whoville to Hollywood" "Songs in the Key of Grinch" featurette with composer Albert Hague and vocalist Thurl Ravenscroft TNT's How the Grinch Stole Christmas Special Edition featurette with Phil Hartman "Who's Who in Whoville" biography gallery Jump to musical selections Grinch pencil test New digital transfer

As first a beloved children’s book and then a classic TV special, Dr. Seuss’ Grinch has been entertaining kids of all ages on Christmas every year for decades. The story (which premiered on TV in 1966) follows the grumpy, holiday-hating Grinch’s evil plot to ruin the Who’s Christmas. Can he steal their holiday spirit by stealing their presents? Or in the end will they teach him that Christmas means just a little bit more?

There’s a reason that this has become the much-loved Christmas classic it has. It captures the spirit of Seuss, his book and viewers alike, offers beautiful animation by the amazing Chuck Jones, some truly unforgettable and catchy songs, and boasts the loving narration/voice talents of the late great Boris Karloff. I’m a real sap at Christmas and the old classics like the Grinch and Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer are my favorites.

This 50th Birthday Deluxe Edition DVD of the Grinch features both wonderful video & audio quality highlighted by vivid colors and a clean crisp soundtrack. Special features include ‘Dr. Seuss and the Grinch: From Whoville to Hollywood’ (16 min), ‘TNT’s How the Grinch Stole Christmas: Special Edition’ (20 min), ‘Dr. Seuss’ Horton Hears a Who!’ (26 min), ‘Songs in the Key of Grinch’ (8 min), ‘Who’s Who in Whoville’ text-based biographies, song selections, and three pencil tests.

With a great eye-popping video transfer, solid audio and a nice collection of special features, the 50th Birthday Deluxe Edition DVD of ‘Dr. Seuss’ How the Grinch Stole Christmas!’ comes highly recommended for viewers both young and old.

By Jenny J.J.I. TOP 500 REVIEWER
"How the Grinch Stole Christmas" is a Christmas classic that usually receives repeated viewings in my household. The Grinch is a timeless tale of tolerance, discised as a fantasy. It's the perfect way to put your Little Cindy Lou Who to bed on Christmas Eve, or any night of the year. "Hurton Hears A Who" is another delightful story, which will be especially popular with animal lovers. The animated adaptations of these two stories are a "hateful" of fun! Here's more on each of the shorts, because a person is a person no matter how small and you deserve some good protect information.

You can keep your Frosty the Snowman, Rudoplh the Red Nosed Reindeer, and all the rest. Just let me have my Grinch. Quite simply, this is the best movie that money can buy- a wonderful gift and you never can have too many Grinch movies. Any family should own this movie. After all, who can resist this tale of selfishness conquered by love? Not me, that's for sure. I'm not really into seeing the Jim Carrey version; nothing can top this Dr. Seuss masterpiece. Not even Hollywood.

The Grinch is a mean one, and your kids will think YOU'RE mean if you don't stuff their stocking with this. It's collectively a perfect disc, and kids will be excited to hear that the soundtracks to both films appear unabridged on a single disc. This is a very special DVD release sure to satisfy the ones who aren't getting a lump of coal this year....

5.0 out of 5 stars The Perfect Christmas Special May 10 2014
There isn't a way for a viewer to hate it,
dislike it, abhor it or even berate it.
It's Doctor Seuss, Silly, and what you don't know,
is it's your heart, not Grinch's, that happens to grow.
It's easy to love L'il Cindy Lou Who,
who tugs at your heart strings with her babyish coo.
Her eyes are the size of those great pumpkin pies,
and she ties up your heart strings the moment she cries.
But, like I said, "easy" to love such a tot,
but loving the Grinch, well, I'll tell you, it's not.
But Seuss makes it possible, even for me,
to learn to love Grinches, despite what I see.
In fact, to be honest, I see some of me
in that Green Grinchy carcass who hates heartlessly.
But as he is touched by the Spirit of Christmas,
and I'm able to peer into that Green Grinchy carcass,
I discover that everyone needs to grow too,
that everyone does things that make others "boo."
And If a cold, hard heart like mine can still grow
by seeing the Grinch's while watching this show,
then everyone else's can grow just as well,
so thankfully Amazon can this cartoon sell.

A movie that will never grow old for me. Updating my tired VHS to a nice new DVD was a needed change. 30 minutes of fun music and the classic lessons of the holiday!

4.0 out of 5 stars horray for the Grinch! Nov. 19 2006
Contrary to what some other people have said, this particular 50th anniversary edition IS remastered. The colours are exactly as they should be and, if I remember correctly, it looks better than it usually does each year on TV. I admit that the special features are nothing all that exciting, but having the classic Grinch on dvd to watch whenever I want is still worth having!

4.0 out of 5 stars The grinch that you love is on Blu-ray!
Okay, so they could have just put it on a DVD, since the quality isn't improved at all, but I couldn't find a copy on DVD, so it had to be this one. No regrets! It's great!

No complaints as this is the classic movie. The only thing that could make it better would be to package the DVD with the bluray.
