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.
Why did I choose this old thing over the newer one? Well, that’s quite simple. Because it’s better. Not that the one’s bad, but there’s just something there that makes it the lesser choice.
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…
