How The Grinch Stole Christmas Preview

There are some things that never go out of style and when it comes to TV holiday specials, Dr. Seuss’ How the Grinch Stole Christmas is definitely one of them. Tomorrow night ABC will be airing the 30-minute Christmas classic that teaches the age-old lesson of what really matters when it comes to the holidays.

Sure, you can show up in Whoville and steal the presents, trees and decorations but when the holiday spirit is truly alive, it can’t be stolen… not even by a furry, green Grinch with a chip on his shoulder and a heart two sizes too small.

Below is ABC’s description and further down is information on the re-airing of the special later in December and a couple of video clips.

“Dr. Seuss' How the Grinch Stole Christmas," the 1966 animated holiday story loved by all tall and small, airs MONDAY, NOVEMBER 30 (8:00-8:30 p.m., ET) on the ABC Television Network (OAD on ABC: 12/12/06).Based on the classic children's book by the legendary Dr. Seuss, Dr. Seuss' How the Grinch Stole Christmas takes viewers inside a snowflake to Whoville, the magical land of the Whos.
