It’s the most wonderful time of the year and while there might be an endless amount of holiday content to stream this Christmas, we know how comforting the classics can b. And what could be more classic than a trip to Whoville for Dr. Seuss’ How the Grinch Stole Christmas?
The 1966 CBS animated special adapted Dr. Seuss’ classic Christmas tale of a thieving miser who tries to sabotage the Christmas-loving Whos’ holiday celebration by stealing everything from the ornaments on their trees to the roast beast to, yes, even the ice cubes. But this children’s tale ultimately reveals the important lesson that Christmas is not about the presents or the decorations or even the food. It’s about being with the ones you love most! Realizing that the holiday is about more than his stolen goods, the Grinch returns the contraband to Whoville and joins in on the merriment. Solid holiday fun for everyone!
For the animated mini-movie, produced by Chuck Jones, narrated by Boris Karloff, and featuring the musical talents of Thurl Ravenscroft, there are a couple of viewing options. It will air at 6 p.m. and 7 p.m. on TBS on Sunday, Nov. 22. NBC will also air the 30-minute classic on Friday, Nov. 27 at 8 p.m. More listings are expected to be announced for December. If you’d prefer on-demand viewing, How the Grinch Strole Christmas is available to rent on YouTube.
If you are looking to watch Jim Carrey strutting around as the furry green guy in Ron Howard‘s live-action version of How the Grinch Stole Christmas, that film is currently available to stream on Netflix, along with the 2018 animated adaptation, The Grinch.
