I just love this movie. No matter how many times I've seen the movie or how old I get, I still love it. The music and the animation are just wonderful. I appreciate that I can now share this with my little one and see how much she enjoys it too.

A Christmas classic - from the clever visuals that manage to magnify Dr. Seuss' story to the deep-voiced theme song and narration.

This may be a TV short. But it's more true and more close to the Dr. Seuss classic book about meaning and lessons for young minds as children.
The story is about a green, mean creature steals Christmas by dressing as Santa Clause on Christmas Eve, and stealing everyone's Christmas presents.
How the Grinch Stole Christmas the 1966 version is a true animated classic with a good message at the end that will truly tech kids to respect what their got and be grateful of what their got. The narration in this is almost close to perfect, because the writer's really put in so much into this trying to be like the classic book.
Overall this version is more better than the other bad versions like: The Cat in the Hat (2003) / How the Grinch stole Christmas (2000).
