Dr Seuss' How the Grinch Stole Christmas

This is my all-time favorite Christmas special. The Whos in Whoville love Christmas. Every year they open gifts, play with their noisy toys, sing songs and have a large feast. This really gets under the skin of their neighbor to the north, the Grinch. One year he decides that he can not take anymore Christmas from the Whos so he needs to stop Christmas from coming. He makes a Santa suit and hat, dresses his dog up as a reindeer and goes on his way. He goes into town an steals everything - the trees, food and toys of all the Whos. However, once the sun rises and he hears the Whos singing he realizes that he Christmas is much more than a feast and gifts.

I have seen this so many times that I know most of the lines by heart. I never saw the Jim Carey version because, to me, it can not even compare. Boris Karloff is wonderful as the narrator and the voice of the Grinch. If there is anyone left out there who has not seen this they need to be tied down and forced to watch it immediately!
