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

How the Grinch Stole Christmas [Deluxe Edition] [2 Discs] [Blu-ray] 
How the Grinch Stole Christmas is a must have Christmas movie, and this Ultimate Edition is the best version available of the 1966 classic.
The video and sound quality are pristine. I watched it with my family and it was like seeing it for the first time!
Included are two extra Grinch episodes. One with the Cat in the Hat, and the other is a Halloween story.
This version also includes a code for digital HD redemption, which it an amazing value considering you get a Blu-ray disc, DVD, and digital.
The Grinch is a staple of so many peoples’ childhoods that transcends time and is apart of so many generations.
Seeing the upgraded picture and sound transfer on this blu ray, it completely rejuvenates the experience of watching the movie AND includes a ton of fun special features for all the adults who are revisiting this film when watching it with their kids to learn more about the process of making this animated movie and celebrating its legacy.
I grew up with How the Grinch Stole Christmas and was beyond excited to share it with my 2 yr old niece as she’s now old enough to enjoy it and especially loved the song. That reward in and of itself makes this blu ray 1000% worth adding to the collection!!
We used to have to wait until a network broadcast this once every December, and then endure commercials interrupting the story, but this makes it possible to play it when it fits the family's schedule.
