I LOVE the Grinch.
Out of all the Dr. Seuss books, this was the one I used to read over and over and over again. I just couldn’t get enough of that grumpy grinch.
One year I even ate a ton of a certain type of cereal just to send away for a special Grinch keychain.
So of course one of my all-time holiday favorites is to watch the How the Grinch Stole Christmas the 1960s version.
It was a great animated feature with Boris Karloff narrating. Besides just fantastically bringing to life the Seussian story, it has one fantastic song.
This song was written by Dr. Seuss, composed by Albert Hague, and sung by Thurl Ravenscroft.
So much awesome. This song just embodies who he is.
I’m so glad they brought back for the live action film, which I also went to see as soon as it was out in theaters, this version being covered by Jim Carrey.
Say what you want about that movie but man was the makeup fantastic! He looks just like the illustration!
