I've been a fan of the TV show for years, but didn't even know this disc existed until last year. I immediately bought it, and I love it.

It claims to be the soundtrack for the 1966 TV special of Dr. Seuss's How the Grinch Stole Christmas. I see some reviewers say it is different. I've only noticed one difference. Whether it is note for note exactly the same or not doesn't matter to me. It's still a great disc.

It only has 5 tracks. The first is Boris Karloff reading the story. It sounds remarkably like the TV special. It even has the songs edited into the story. The only change I noticed is here. Boris does all the narration, including Cindy Lou Who.

The other four tracks are the songs from the special by themselves. "Welcome Christmas" gets two tracks, with the second being a longer reprise. That track has additional words and an instrumental bridge. "Trim Up the Tree" is just as nonsensical as in the special.

Which brings us to "You're a Mean One, Mr. Grinch." I love this song in the special, and it is preserved exactly as it is here, including Thurl Ravenscroft wonderful voice. It's one of my favorite parts of the special, and I love having it here. I'll confess, I often listen to it two or three times in a row.

So if you are a fan of the TV show and love the songs, you'll be glad you got this CD.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dr. Suess TV Classic Is Great But.... 13 Jan. 2001
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This album truly fits the bill. It does cover all the songs and full narration of Boris Karloff but be warned... it's not an exact soundtrack from the TV show. When Cindy-Lu Who speaks in this version, it's actually Boris himself which is quite a surprise. Charming nonetheless. A true classic.

5.0 out of 5 stars No Unpleasant Suprises 3 Aug. 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
If you want the songs and story from the grinch christmass special that you watched as a kid and not some cheap sound alike, this is what you are looking for. I was very pleased. This is exactly what I wanted. This will be the best christmass ever! Now if only I can get a CD version of the Brady Bunch Christmass, my second childhood will be complete.

How the Grinch Stole Christmas is a great Christmas movie, and with this CD, you can hear the music all year long. I highly recommend this CD because of it's entertaining music, and great beat.

How the Grinch Stole Christmas is a great story that teaches us all the Christmas spirit. It is a timeless classic that should be shared.

5.0 out of 5 stars One's never too young or too old for the fun & meaning here. 26 Nov. 2002
By Neal Reynolds - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
The Grinch has successfully displaced Ebeneezer Scrooge as the spirit of anti-Christmas for today's audience. And there are similarities. Just as Tiny Tim was a strong factor in Ebeneezer's redemption, the children are a strong factor in the Grinch's redemption.
It's a pleasure to be able to hear the great Boris Karloff narration, along with the songs, and then afterwards to again hear the songs reprised.
Of course, this is a short CD, just barely 30 minutes in length. One must realize that while the program was supposed to be a half hour long, nearly a third of the time was used for toy advertisements. The irony of it all, a beautiful story telling us that the joy of Christmas is in the spirit of Christmas, not in the getting toys is aired for the purpose of selling overpriced and non-imaginative toys.
Anyway, this is definitely a 5 star CD.
