Trivia: How the Grinch Stole Christmas!

The animated special:

  • Actor Allusion: Boris Karloff voices a green monster.
  • Edited for Syndication: For many years US network broadcasts deleted one of the "You're a Mean One" verses ("You're a rotter, Mr. Grinch...") as well as a genuinely disturbing moment in which the Grinch does his Slasher Smile while leering at several young Whos in their bed.
    • Later ABC broadcasts cut the special down to the bare minimum, keeping the important story parts, deleting many of the Visual Gags, as well as a shot of the Grinch cracking his whip while Max pulls the sleigh up Mt. Crumpet. Averted with broadcasts on Cartoon Network and TBS, which show the special uncut.
  • He Also Did: Boris Karloff did the narration and the Grinch's voice.
  • Hey, It's That Voice!: The Grinch Song is sung by Thurl Ravenscroft, who among many, many voices did that of Kirby in The Brave Little Toaster and Tony the Tiger.
