Program Notes

Dr. Seuss' How the Grinch Stole Christmas! is a 1966 Christmas animated musical comedy television special directed by Chuck Jones. It is based on the eponymous children's book by Dr. Seuss, the story of the Grinch trying to take away Christmas from the townsfolk of Whoville below his mountain hideaway.

Originally telecast in the United States on CBS on December 18, 1966, it went on to become a perennial holiday special. Directed by Chuck Jones, it features the voice of Boris Karloff.

- Program Note from Wikipedia


Dr Seuss' timeless Christmas tale comes alive in this holiday medley! Michael Story's expert arranging keeps things playable and retains the impish fun of the theme. Featuring Welcome Christmas; Trim Up The Tree and You're a Mean One Mister Grinch, the sounds of these familiar tunes will bring a smile to the faces of young and old alike.

- Program Note by publisher


Of all the Dr. Seuss stories, possibly none is more delightfully charming than the take on that mean old man who disliked Christmas so much that he stole all the presents, the toys and the Christmas trees. As should befall any villain, he is transformed and his heart "grew three times its size." This is a superior holiday medley with two great songs and wonderful incidental music.
