TNB Night Owl – The Grinch

Sometimes I like to post a nice video for people on Friday or Saturday night, a bit of television or movie oddity which has fallen into the cracks of pop culture’s sidewalk.

My wife has kindly taken it upon herself to spell me once a week (and, yes, the others here at TNB… including guest writers… are still likely to contribute some Owls when they’re in the mood to do so.)

Tonight, though, in mind of the upcoming holiday, I thought I’d queue up one of the great holiday classics, featuring the beloved Dr. Seuss character, The Grinch.

Oh, not How The Grinch Stole Christmas, nor any of the live-action remakes. I’m talking about the other Grinch special, Halloween is Grinch Night.

Released in 1977 as a prequel to the successful animated Christmas special, it was produced from a screenplay written by Dr. Seuss and, unlike most other Seussian works, was not adapted from a children’s book.

It was shown sporadically after its original presentation, and only rarely appears on broadcast television. Here it is, for those who had forgotten, or never knew, about the other Grinch special.

Question of the night: What’s your favorite animated holiday special?
