How the Grinch Stole Christmas

Dr. Seuss' How the Grinch Stole Christmas! is a 1966 American animated musical comedy television special directed by Chuck Jones.

It is based on the children's book by Dr. Seuss, the story of The Grinch trying to take away Christmas from the townsfolk of Whoville below his mountain hideaway. The special is one of the classic Christmas specials from the 1960s still shown regularly on television.
The 26-minute short was originally telecast in the United States on CBS on December 18, 1966. Boris Karloff, in one of his final roles, narrates the film and also provides the speaking voice of The Grinch.
