Running Time: 26 mins

How The Grinch Stole Christmas! is an American short animation about a Christmas humbug who tries to ruin the festival for all of the people in the town below his cave.

(I didn’t have any time today to watch a lengthy film, due to an exam, so I apologise…)

It is hard to judge a film as short as this, however it was enjoyable to watch, and is one of the classic Christmas stories from the past 50 years.

I liked the animation of the Grinch, and I found his attempts to carry the sleigh up his mountain along with his small dog very funny, and the overall spirit of the story was very good in my opinion, although the young children were very annoying to me, so overall, I’m going to give this a 7.5 because it was entertaining to watch, and it is a classic, even though it was quite slow.
