Dr. Seuss’s Holidays on the Loose! Featured Specials Include:

  • 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! Based on Dr. Seuss’ beloved book, this joyous, heart-tickling holiday event which features the voice of legendary actor 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 this 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 peaceful picnic in the shade to helping the frightfully mean Grinch turn a new leaf. This special earned an Emmy® Award for Outstanding Animated Program in 1982.

  • 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!

I grew up with Dr. Seuss everry Christmas with the "Grinch Who Stole Christmas" and always knew I would with my kids.  I was thrilled to get this dvd since I had never seen the "The Grinch Grinches The Cat in the Hat" or the "Halloween is a Grinch Night".  I knew my kids would love the Grinch and the Cat in the Hat since they are in love with the Cat in the Hat right now.  I have to say I liked this dvd alot when my family and I set down to watch it with a big bowl of popcorn of course!  My kids loved it. 

The dvd is perfect for any Grinch fan or Dr. Seuss fan.  The dvd is available now at mass retailers and online at for $21.99.  Go grab a copy of it to watch with the family.  After all Dr. Seuss is a classic!
