ex rental but fine!
This was an ex rental DVD but you wouldn't know it! It came in a Lovefilm style case as well so that was a bonus. Nice to find this story as a DVD to replace the ancient and tangled video I used to have.
great christmas moview
I watched this movie every year as a child, and to me it is a huge part of the lead up to Christmas. However when the Jim Carry version came out i was dismayed at what a horrible spin they put on the story. I absolutly hated it and decided i needed to find the origional cartoon for my kids... who also now love it as much as i did... and still do!
Chuck Jones and Boris Karloff; Do the Whose?
Need I say more? Dr. Seuss, directed by Chuck Jones and narrated by Boris Karloff. It is a faithful re-telling of Dr. Seuss's classic story, that copies the art and most importantly retains the word play. It even has some good songs if you like that kind of thing! The grinch, bitter and selfish steals Christmas away from the Whose. Disguising himself as Santa, he sneaks down to the Whose to take everything Christmassy, and everything else. But will that stop Christmas? Is he beyond enjoying the season himself? What happens when little Cindy Loo Who, returns his hateful act with kindness itself... If your only point of reference is the recent film (nevermind) this is much (much) better. Who can fail to love the Cat in the Hat; the way this is presented... - Scott
I first heard about this when i watched Home Alone 2 and was curious to actually know what it was all about. With time i found out what the story was from the Jim Carey adaptation. The original toon narated by horror master Boris Karloff was an instant classic.
