Dr Seuss’s Holiday on the Loose
Warner Home Video, October 18, 2011
If I found this DVD in my Christmas stocking or on the table on the first night of Hanukkah, I would jump for joy, do a little jig, and compose a raucous rhyming thank-you song. This DVD has 3 Dr. Seuss Holiday Classics! I had only seen two of these shows, but they all are wonderful onscreen adaptations of the genius Dr. Seuss.
How the Grinch Stole Christmas: “Every Who down in Whoville liked Christmas a lot.” And every family likes How the Grinch Stole Christmas! a lot! This joyous, heart-tickling holiday event based on Dr. Seuss’ beloved book and featuring the voice of Boris Karloff has delighted all ages since its 1966 debut. Can the Grinch steal the town’s holiday spirit by stealing their holiday treats? Or does Christmas… perhaps…mean a little bit more? The answers to those questions unfold charmingly under Chuck Jones’ pitch-perfect direction.
The Grinch Grinches The Cat in the Hat: What happens when the mischievous Grinch decides to wreak havoc on the world, but the happy and ever-so-delightful Cat in the Hat stands in his way? The result is a triumphant story of an unlikely hero who uses a little caring and compassion to help save the world from an unfriendly and unbeautiful future. Watch and see if the Cat in the Hat can go from a peaceful picnic in the shade to helping the frightfully mean Grinch turn a new leaf.
Halloween is Grinch Night: The sinister Grinch who stole Whoville’s Christmas is back to declare Halloween as “Grinch Night”! While the Whos are caught in a horrible storm of Sour-Sweet Wind, the Grinch and his trusty pooch Max, take this opportunity to terrorize the little town. Unfortunately for him he is surprised by a young boy whose unexpected courage prevents the Grinch from unleashing his awful horrors onto their tranquil town. Grinch Night will never be the same!
