Meet Mr. Grinch - He's the absolute meanest (and the greenest) meanie of them all!

What would this happy "Holiday Season" be without at least one viewing of this thoroughly delightful, animated, feature film from 1966?

Based on Dr. Seuss' beloved book, and featuring the voice of Boris Karloff, this absolutely endearing picture has been bringing joy to delighted viewers for nearly 50 years now.

The fun all begins when the mean, old Grinch plots to ruin Christmas for the Whos down in Whoville by stealing all of their holiday treats from them.

Without a doubt, How the Grinch Stole Christmas is a true classic that can easily be appreciated by the young and old, alike.

I discovered the violence in this video while watching it with my 3yr old and turned it off. I feel that it should have some kind of rating or warning on the cover, on the chance that parents aren't watching it too, and I imagine that many aren't aware of the content as I wasn't. I mentioned it to a librarian at our branch and was told it was too bad it was in there but likely would not be pulled from the shelves.

This looked like a nice kid-friendly video, but turned out very disappointing. In particular, do not watch the cartoon "Horton Hatches the Egg" in which a character takes a gun to his head and shoots himself. Not something to show your child. What were the cartoon makers thinking???

If you can divorce your assessment from the nostalgia of having seen this every year, you come to realize that, absent "Maybe Christmas doesn't come from a store/Maybe Christmas, perhaps, means a little bit more" and "Christmas is within our grasp/As long as we have hands to clasp," there really isn't that much about Christmas, or even that much of a message in this movie. Charming, I grant you, and clever lines and lyrics in places. But meaning came there almost none. (I do like Horton's loyalty and persistence, but the songs make that one hard to sit through.)
