Every who down in Who-ville likes Christmas a lot, but the Grinch who lived just north of Who-ville did NOT! So the cuddly as a cactus Grinch (with termites in his smile and garlic in his soul) tries to wipe out Christmas for the cheerful Who-villains, only to discover: maybe Christmas, he thought doesn’t come from as store. Maybe Christmas perhaps means a little bit more! Magnificently narrated by Boris Karloff and animated by cartoon legend Chuck Jones, it’s an award-winning Who-roast-beast-fe

    The Grinch is GREEN!!!, November 21, 2006
    By 
    Paul C. Visby (Eagan, MN United States) –
      

    I just purchased this new anniversary edition of “How the Grinch Stole Christmas” (50th for the book and 40th for the special). First, this is a single disc release – not the two-disc set that was originally announced. I stuck the disc into my player to check it out and I was pleasantly surprised. “The Grinch” has been cleaned-up and looks beautiful. And, yes, the Grinch is now GREEN! YEA!!! But be warned, “Horton Hears A Who” has NOT been cleaned-up. It is the same version that appeared on the previous release. There is a new special feature that looks interesting. BUT, there are a few things that have disappeared: Chapter stops for both specials are GONE!, Subtitles for both specials are GONE!, and the commentary for “The Grinch” is GONE! I suppose I can live without those in exchange for a green Grinch, though it is disappointing. Be prepared for the missing features if you plan to upgrade. I do recommend this, though, as “The Grinch” looks so much better than the previous release.

    ***UPDATE*** 11/9/09
    This anniversary edition has been discontinued and replaced by a very similar edition. The new 2009 edition was actually created in 2008 (the trailers are for upcoming DVDs – one year ago) and there are a couple of changes. First, the “Horton Hears A Who” feature has been dropped, I assume, because it has since gotten its own release. Second, the audio commentary has been restored. And third, the subtitles have been restored. Chapter stops are still missing but that is ok as the special is only 25 minutes or so. I had a lot of trouble getting this edition. I went through two copies from Amazon (and got a full refund), a copy from Target, and a copy from Warner Brothers itself (they replaced the Target copy). The problem was that the cover was from the new 2009 version but the disc was the 2006 disc. I finally found a correct version at Walmart today. There is no way to know if it is correct until you open it. The 2006 disc label says “50th Birthday Deluxe Edition” while the 2009 disc label just says “Deluxe Edition.” The transfer itself is still the color-corrected, green-Grinch version found on the 2006 DVD.
