"How the Grinch Stole Christmas" is coming to NBC starting this holiday seasonThe classic holiday musical special “How the Grinch Stole Christmas” is coming to NBC starting this holiday season.

In a three-year licensing deal with Warner Bros. Domestic Television Distribution, NBC becomes the broadcast home of the 1967 animated classic for two runs per holiday season.

The beloved Christmas special combines the genius of Dr. Seuss (Theodor Geisel) and animator Chuck Jones to bring the timeless book “How the Grinch Stole Christmas” to television. The special features the voices of Boris Karloff as the Grinch and the narrator, and June Foray as Cindy Lou Who.

Chuck Jones, who directed many of the most acclaimed Warner Bros. animated shorts, is producer and director of “How the Grinch Stole Christmas,” which was written by Geisel based on his book.

The classic tale involves the schemes of the green and small-hearted Grinch to steal every material vestige of Christmas from the Whos living in the town of Whoville, but the Grinch ultimately discovers he can’t remove the spirit of Christmas from the hearts of the Whos.

    Wow. That’s two big ones CBS has allowed to get away in recent years. (The other is, of course, A Charlie Brown Christmas.) I’m glad someone at NBC (which let Rudolph get away a looooong time ago) decided Grinch was worth fighting for.
