He's a mean one, all right. This Boris Karloff-narrated Dr. Seuss classic is a timeless gem. Though the Grinch is about as cuddly as a cactus as he plots to steal Christmas from the folks in Whoville, the singing and celebrating Whos eventually melt his cold heart and teach him the true meaning of Christmas. An annual must.
