Christmas Cartoons 6

The 1966 classic from MGM, directed by cartoon director Chuck Jones, is up next.
Based on the book of the same name by Dr. Suess, How the Grinch Stole Christmas is a genuine Christmas classic.
Christmas comes to Who-ville again, but the Grinch who lives atop Mt. Krumpet is determined to stop it. He can't stand the Whos and the noises of the holidays.
He disguises himself as Santy Clause and sneaks into Who-ville on Christmas Eve. He breaks-and-enters into everywho's home and steals everything.
The Grinch is almost busted by young Mary Lou Who but he lies to the child and continues on his way. He has his dog Max, pull the sled full of the Who belongings to the tip top of Mt. Krumpet to dump it over the side. But before he does, he wants to hear the sobs and cries of the Whos for his own amusement.
He is surprised that even without material posessions, Christmas comes to the Whos afterall.
The Grinch is left puzzling and puzzling until his puzzler is sore until he discovers the true meaning of Christmas. He returns the Who belongings and ends up carving the roast beast for the Who celebration.A true Christmas classic! See on your local station or find the DVD from Warner Home Video!
