Critic Reviews for How the Grinch Stole Christmas
The story might be familiar, but watching The Grinch tiptoe around to "You're a Mean One, Mr. Grinch" always brings a surge of fuzzy nostalgia every Christmas season that never seems to get old.
The special works because of its surprisingly sentimental climax, one that comes by its emotion honestly, as the Grinch realizes the Christmas spirit is indomitable, no matter what he does to stop it.
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.
Audience Reviews for How the Grinch Stole Christmas
A Christmas classic wonderfully narrated by Boris Karloff (!!!) Having seen it again as an adult, it did not impress me as magically superb as it did as a child. But then again, what does?
One of my all-time favorite Christmas films. This is an absolute classic. Like the story it's based on, it's short, sweet, and to the point. Yeah, the scenario is quite typical, with a curmudgeon learning to love instead of hate, but hot damn it is done so well here. Chuck Jones knocks it out of the park with his crisp animation, the art direction, set design, and style are pure, wonderful, Suess, and they got Boris Karloff to narrate and voice the Grinch, and that's just perfect. If you have managed to not see this yet, you really must.
Simply a christmas classic.
