Synopsis

Dr. Seuss: The Grinch Grinches the Cat in the Hat
Always wondered what would happen if Dr. Seuss' nastiest villain met his finest hero? This award-winning classic Grinch Grinches the Cat in the Hat answers that question. The green-skinned know-it-all is in a foul mood and tries to ruin the picnic. Using his Grinchmobile, he pollutes the air and then devises a way to change the Cat's singing voice. But enough is enough and the Cat uses his cunning to put things right. Once again, the Grinch learns there is more to life than grumpiness. The music by Joe Raposo includes "A Beezleberry Day," "Re-lax," and "The Master of Everyone's Ears." ~ Sarah Ing, Rovi

Halloween Is Grinch Night
How the Grinch Stole Christmas
Chuck Jones' animated version of the classic Dr. Seuss book How the Grinch Stole Christmas originally aired on television in 1966 and has since become a holiday family favorite. Voiced by Boris Karloff (who also narrates), the Grinch lives on top of a hill overlooking Whoville with his dog, Max. Each year at Christmas time, the Grinch's hatred grows stronger toward those insufferably cheerful Whos down in Whoville. Content to exchange presents, eat large banquets, and sing songs in the town square, the Whos live in a blissful ignorance of the Grinch's contempt. One year, he gets the idea to stop Christmas from coming by dressing up as Santa Claus. He cobbles together an outfit and makes his dog drag him around on a sleigh while sneaking into the Whos' homes and stealing their presents, food, and decorations. After he has stolen every last thing, the Whos wake up on Christmas morning to sing in the town square, causing the Grinch to question the basis of his nefarious plan. Thurl Ravenscroft (the voice of kid cereal mascot Tony the Tiger) provides the vocals for the song "You're a Mean One, Mr. Grinch." This story was remade into a live-action movie in 2000 by director Ron Howard starring Jim Carrey as the Grinch. ~ Andrea LeVasseur, Rovi
