Dr. Seuss' How the Grinch Stole Christmas, the animated holiday story loved by all tall and small, airs MONDAY, DECEMBER 1 (8:30-9:00 p.m., ET) and TUESDAY, DECEMBER 23 (8:00-9:00 p.m., ET) on the ABC Television Network. The original 1966 special will air with additional footage from a "making of" documentary, featuring interviews with Theodore "Dr. Seuss" Geisel and Chuck Jones, as well as some of the original voice artists, animators and musicians who made this classic the timeless holiday treasure that it is.

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. But high above this holiday-loving town resides the Grinch, a hateful creature with a heart three sizes too small, who despises Christmas and plots to steal it from the Whos.

Will a greedy Mayor Augustus Maywho or the seductive Martha May Whovier ruin his plans? Or will the loving little Cindy Lou Who be able to teach The Grinch the true meaning of Christmas?

The voice cast includes Boris Karloff as The Grinch/Narrator and June Foray as Cindy Lou Who.

The animated short was directed by Chuck Jones and was written by Dr. Seuss, with additional story by Bob Ogle and Irv Spector.
