Holiday-a-Thon #4 How the Grinch Stole Christmas! (1966)

Tango's Thoughts Holiday-A-Thon banner

Well, what’ya know, it’s that time again….. and today, I thought I’d drop some thoughts on How the Grinch Stole Christmas! and I have chozen the animated short from 1966 rather than the live-action from 2000 with Jim Carrey.

The sound of Boris Karloff narrating and voicing the Grinch, there’s nothing more christmassy. And the animation is so amazingly beautiful and a real fresh air from all the computer animated crap that’s been thrown at you today. The movie may just be a short, but the overall feeling it brings to the holidays, it makes it all worth it and if I have to choose one Grinch to see every year, I’d definitely choose this one, no doubt about it.

Short and sweet today, but tomorrow we’ll take a look at that pesky Scrooge and see what he’s been up to these last few years, but until then…

This is not a serious movie review-blog. I do not review movies in a fashion that certified critics would. I think about stuff when I watch movies, and then write about those thoughts I had during the movie. I sometimes also think about other stuff related to movies, like castings, sequels and a whole bunch of other stuff. Sometimes, I even think about video games and then write about that. The only thing that's really specific to my writing, is that I write to you in the same way I would talk to you about all this stuff. So please, enjoy my writings, and if you were to get offended by anything, I would suggest you unravel that bunched up pantyhose you have stuck up your butt and stop being so sensitive, because honestly... that's Your problem, not anyone elses. Thank you! View all posts by hanktango
