Original drawings from the book by Dr. Seuss make up this reading of the children's novel by rough-voiced actor Walter Matthau. A visual presentation of Seuss' original book and music, this video was produced in 1957, shortly after the publication of the book itself. In what has become a classic tale, the Grinch attempts to prevent holiday joy from reaching the town of Who-ville by destroying all the physical manifestations of festiveness. However, he soon learns that the spirit of Christmas can warm the hearts of the Who's, with or without the material goods that normally go with it. ~ Sarah Sloboda, All Movie Guide

Please note that we carry two animated versions of Dr. Seuss' classic tale. This version features the original artwork of Dr. Seuss and is narrated by Walter Matthau. The other version is directed by Chuck Jones and narrated by Boris Karloff - it is paired with "Horton Hears a Who."
