Notes

Originally broadcast by CBS on 18 December 1966, How the Grinch Stole Christmas became a perennial feature of US festive season television - the position occupied by Raymond Briggs's The Snowman for British audiences. Superbly voiced by Boris Karloff and with ear-catching music by Albert Hague and Eugene Poddany, it was Chuck Jones's inspired direction that turned Seuss's updating of the Scrooge story into a small screen classic. The scene, featured around the 18:30 mark in the film, depicts the Grinch in his Santa costume, stealing the Who's ice cubes.
