The Incredible Backstory Of “How The Grinch Stole Christmas” By Dr. Suess


“How The Grinch Stole Christmas” by the singular Dr. Seuss became a Christmas movie staple when it first aired in 1966. However, due to a number of complications, the most festive Dr. Seuss tale of all his books nearly never made it to television. The backstory of Theodor “Dr. Seuss'' Geisel, the illustrious animator Chuck Jones and the unlikely odyssey to put the green Grinch on television deserves its own Hollywood movie.

The pair navigated Dr. Seuss’s infamous distaste of Hollywood, a severe lack of funding, and a rather large time deficit to create an all-time classic. This is the genesis of “How The Grinch Stole Christmas.”
