: a behind-the-scenes look at the creation of this perennial favorite. Featuring never-before-seen animation tests and interviews with director Chuck Jones, Audrey Geisel (Dr. Seuss' widow), composer Albert Hague, vocalist Thurl Ravenscroft, and Seuss aficionados Tim Burton & Danny Elfman, this 1994 special from cable channel TNT contains a sleigh-load of information for Grinch fans.Hartman brings a tremendous amount of enthusiasm to the documentary, which includes initial pencil tests and also includes file footage of Boris Karloff. Who knew that Fame's Mr. Shorofsky composed the special's music? Or that the singer of "You're a Mean One, Mr. Grinch" also voiced Tony the Tiger in countless Frosted Flakes commercials? Informative and funny, this is not to be missed.
