Dr. Seuss' How the Grinch Stole Christmas!

 (TV) (1966)

Dr. Seuss' How the Grinch Stole Christmas! Blu-ray delivers great video and mediocre audio in this overall recommended Blu-ray release

This joyous, heart-tickling holiday event based on Dr. Seuss' beloved book and featuring the voice of Boris Karloff has delighted viewers of all ages since its 1966 debut. The fun begins when the grumpy, grouchy, Yule-hating Grinch plots to ruin the Who's Christmas. Can he steal their holiday spirit by stealing their holiday treats? Or does Christmas...perhaps...mean a little bit more?

For more about Dr. Seuss' How the Grinch Stole Christmas! and the Dr. Seuss' How the Grinch Stole Christmas! Blu-ray release, see Dr. Seuss' How the Grinch Stole Christmas! Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 3.5 out of 5.

Dr. Seuss' How the Grinch Stole Christmas! Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Much has already been written about the Blu-ray edition of Dr. Seuss' How the Grinch Stole Christmas and the sudden influx of bright, lime-green fur that accompanies its every frame -- a point of contention for purists, especially those relying on screenshot comparisons that reveal how brown the Grinch had become in television broadcasts and home video releases over the years -- but the television special's original animation cells prove Warner's 1080p/VC-1 transfer is a faithful representation of its animators' choices and intentions. Colors are rich and rewarding (yep, even the greens), blacks are suitably inky, contrast is gorgeous, and Chuck Jones' lineart is crisper than it's ever been. Yes, print damage, wavering color fills, and background anomalies are ongoing distractions (as they are in any forty-year-old animated production), but inconsistencies and eyesores such as these should be attributed to the film's original animation cells and print, not Warner's technical transfer. In fact, I only encountered one technical issue: some rather negligible artifacts shudder into view on occasion. It isn't a debilitating problem by any means, but it is one that holds the presentation back from perfection. All things considered, the young at heart (at least those with appropriate expectations) will thoroughly enjoy Warner's efforts.


Dr. Seuss' How the Grinch Stole Christmas! Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  2.5 of 5

Dr. Seuss' How the Grinch Stole Christmas arrives alongside A Charlie Brown Christmas and Dr. Seuss' Horton Hears a Who!, and all three suffer strikingly similar sonic fates. Instead of offering lossless stereo mixes, Warner has simply repurposed the 192kbps Dolby Digital stereo tracks that appear on the animated specials' standard DVD counterparts. The tracks are passable and, considering their age and condition, altogether serviceable, but wavering music, at-times muffled voices, and background hiss are frequent issues. Though they'll undoubtedly earn a free pass from nostalgic fans focused on the cartoons' humble productions -- perhaps rightfully so -- I wanted more. A lossless stereo track, a more extensive audio restoration... something. Anything more than recycled mixes from previously released DVDs. No, its meager audio offering shouldn't prevent anyone from purchasing How the Grinch Stole Christmas, but it certainly won't leave a lasting impression.
