How The Grinch Stole Christ­mas! (1966) — Chuck Jones Ani­mated TV Special

CotD: The grand-daddy of all Christ­mas spe­cials, “How The Grinch Stole Christ­mas!” showed us that some things are best as car­toons, big bud­gets and Jim Car­rey or not!

How The Grinch Stole Christ­mas! (1966) — Chuck Jones Ani­mated TV Special

Bit­ter and hate­ful, the crotch­ety Grinch, with “ter­mites in his smile” and “gar­lic in his soul,” is irri­tated at the thought of the nearby vil­lage of Whoville hav­ing a happy time cel­e­brat­ing Christmas.

Dis­guised as Santa Claus, with his dog made to look like a rein­deer, he raids the vil­lage to steal all the Christ­mas things. The vil­lage is sure to have a sad Christ­mas this year. But although the Grinch tries to wipe out Christ­mas for the cheer­ful Whovil­lians, he dis­cov­ers that the true spirit of the hol­i­day sea­son lies beyond his cov­etous grasp.
