Dr. Seuss' How the Grinch Stole Christmas
Release: May 01, 1966

The Grinch is a green, gloomy Gus, who decides that the Whos in Whoville are enjoying their Christmas too much. He schemes and he plots to ruin their special day, but a young girl named Cindy makes sure he changes his ways. Boris Karloff narrated and provided the voice of the Grinch in this holiday classic, which was directed by legendary animator Chuck Jones, and featured Thurl Ravenscroft (the voice of Tony the Tiger from the Frosted Flakes commercials) singing "You're a Mean One, Mr. Grinch." It became an instant classic, spawned two sequels ("Halloween is Grinch Night" and "The Grinch Grinches the Cat in the Hat"), a live-action remake starring Jim Carrey and a CGI remake starring Benedict Cumberland.

Narrator: "He puzzled and puzzled till his puzzler was sore, then the Grinch thought of something he hadn't before."
Grinch: "Maybe Christmas, doesn't come from a store. Maybe Christmas means a little bit more."

The Grinch: "How could it be so? It came without ribbons. It came without tags. It came without packages boxes or bags!"

The Grinch: "[in his cave-made Santa suit] All I need is a reindeer."
Reader: "The Grinch looked around, ["looked around" refers to Grinch staring at his reindeer antlers] but since reindeer are scarce, there are none to be found. Did that stop the Grinch? [scoffs] Ha! The Grinch simply said…:"
Grinch: "[as his dog Max goes hiding under the bed] If I can't find a reindeer, I'll make one instead."
Reader: "[fade-out/fade-in to Max with a reindeer antlers on his forehead] So he took his dog, Max, and he took some black thread, and he tied a big horn on the top of his head."
Grinch: "[He is settled, but grasped when his antlers is too heavy for his dog to lay flat. non-verbally, he then saws four antlers: Three on the ground, one by him that took away from his hand, in order to have Max balance back up again.]"
