This lusty, garishly colored, good-hearted cartoon was a wonderful, awful idea.

I've always thought Boris Karloff's last great role was as the snarling, malevolent voice of the Grinch in this 1966 television cartoon.

Chuck Jones's wonderful 1966 television special remains a model of economy, taking Dr. Suess's simple tale and perfectly stretching it out to 26 minutes.

Forget director Ron Howard's ill-conceived, live-action version of How the Grinch Stole Christmas. The only cinematic take the story needed was released as an animated television special in 1966.

It's the kind of weirdly clever, yet innocent and kid-friendly, product that forces me to use this tired cliché -- they just don't make 'em like this any more

In the middle of a frantic Christmas season, there is no better respite from the buy-me commercialism of the holidays than this short, but poignant story by Dr. Seuss.
