Dr. Seuss' How the Grinch Stole Christmas! The Ultimate Edition - Review! #TheGrinch

Disclosure: Warner Bros. Home Entertainment provided me with a free copy of the Blu-ray I reviewed in this Blog Post. The opinions I share are my own.




Thanksgiving is next week! Then it's time to start thinking about Christmas! In face, I'm putting up my tree this coming Wednesday! I can hardly wait! The elves will make an appearance too! My kids are over the moon excited about decorating the tree and their elves coming back for a month! It's our Christmas tradition to watch as many Christmas movies as we can from November 1st through December 24th! We usually always start off with "How the Grinch Stole Christmas" animated version! I remember watching it when I was younger when we'd have indoor recess because it was pouring rain outside. I also remember watching it on television when I was a little girl. I think my parents loved it as much as my sisters and I did.

This must-have release features three animated Dr.Seuss specials including How the Grinch Stole Christmas! The Grinch Grinches the Cat in the Hat and Halloween is Grinch Night. This collection of films is available to own on Digital HD and in a Blu-Ray™ Combo pack which includes a Blu-Ray, DVD, and Digital copy.

The two additional specials make movie night even more fun as you get more Grinch time and since these specials are available for the first time in HD, you will be able to enjoy them like never before. This is the must-have edition to everyone’s holiday movie collection.

How the Grinch Stole Christmas!:
Magnificently narrated by Boris Karloff (Frankenstein, The Mummy) and directed by animation genius and cartoon legend Chuck Jones (Looney Tunes, What’s Opera, Doc?), How the Grinch Stole Christmas! tells the story of the miserable Grinch, who wants to sabotage Christmas for all the Whos in Who-ville.

The Grinch thinks that by stealing the Whos Christmas trees and presents, he’ll succeed in stealing their joy. However, when Christmas morning arrives, the Grinch is taken by surprise when he notices the Whos greet the day joyously singing Christmas carols regardless of the fact that their village has been completely stripped of holiday gifts, decorations and treats. The cheerful attitude of the Whos prompts the Grinch to ponder the true meaning of Christmas and he slowly comes to realize the spirit of the season is not generated by material possessions. Will the Grinch have a change of heart and consider returning the Whos’ Christmas gifts?

The Grinch Grinches the Cat in the Hat:
The Grinch is up to his old tricks again in The Grinch Grinches the Cat in the Hat, the Emmy® Award-winning special directed by legendary animator Friz Freleng. In this special, the Cat in the Hat encounters the Grinch while picnicking one day. He refers to the Grinch as Mr. Greenface, which the Grinch takes an as insult, prompting him to retaliate by building a series of outrageous devices designed to cause all sorts of disruption. First, he creates a “Vacusound Sweeper,” which distorts any and all of the sounds within a 50-mile radius of the Cat in the Hat. Then he creates the “Dark House,” which is the direct opposite of a light house and puts the Cat in the Hat into complete darkness. He then uses the “Flummox Deluxe” to further warp the Cat in the Hat’s surroundings, which sends him and everything around him into complete chaos. Will the Cat in the Hat figure out a way to stop the Grinch and outsmart all his crazy devices?

Halloween is Grinch Night:
When the Sour-Sweet wind starts to blow in Who-ville, all the Whos take cover because this signifies the beginning of Grinch Night, an evening in which the Grinch descends upon Who-ville to terrorize all its citizens. As the Grinch sets out on his journey to Who-ville, he encounters a courageous young Who named Euchariah, who attempts to stall the Grinch from reaching Who-ville. The Grinch however puts Euchariah into a trance in which he encounters all sorts of strange creatures who try to intimidate him. Will Euchariah manage to snap out of the trance in time to stop Grinch from reaching Who-ville?
