That conniving Grinch has stolen four consecutive nights of airtime on Cartoon Network for the annual "Grinch Week." The perennial animated holiday special DR. SEUSS' HOW THE GRINCH STOLE CHRISTMAS airs at 8:00 pm Monday-Thursday, Dec. 1-4, 2003. Dr. Seuss' classic fable portrays the mean old Grinch and his efforts to muzzle the holiday spirits of the happy-go-lucky citizens of Whoville.
Boris Karloff, narrated and provided the voice in the 1966 version of DR. SEUSS' HOW THE GRINCH STOLE CHRISTMAS. However, the classic solo of You're a Mean One, Mr. Grinch was performed by Thurl Ravenscroft, the same voice who gives Tony the Tiger his roar. Cindy Lou Who was voiced by June Foray of Rocky the Flying Squirrel fame. Chuck Jones and Ben Washam co-directed the special for MGM. Phil Roman was one of the animators on it, designed by Maurice Noble.
