Production Notes:

Songs include "You're a Mean One, Mr. Grinch" and "Trim Up the Tree."

Theodor Seuss Geisel initially felt that Karloff's portrayal of the Grinch might be too scary, and wanted someone else to voice him. His voice was altered by removing the highs and resulting in the more gravely voice now in the film. This separated the Grinch's voice from the narrators, and Ted Geisel approved of the changes.

Boris Karloff was not only the voice actor for the Grinch, but his facial expressions were sketched by the artists to provide visual models for the Grinch's characterizations.

Traditional, Hand-drawn Animation.

Alternate Title: "Dr. Seuss' How the Grinch Stole Christmas."
