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

By Jamie MacDougall TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
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.

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 The grinch that you love is on Blu-ray! March 28 2014
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars A classic for good reason!
The rhyme itself is brilliant, the animation old school and wonderful, the typical imaginative excess of Seuss is wonderful and the moral, sublime. Read more
