  1. Well, I was too *old* by 1977 to be that interested in Dr. Seuss stuff anymore. I just kept watching the other one ’cause I’d seen it from a child, so it was nostalgia. But too bad the Halloween one doesn’t get its due….

  2. There’s that poor little dog on that leash again, doing the work of four oxes!
    If PETA cared about cartoon animals, they’d have the Grinch’s butt in a sling before he could blink, lol !!

    Didn’t see this one, but of course saw Grinch who stole Christmas a thousand times.
