"Cindy-Lou Who surprises the Grinch. I drew Cindy-Lou to appear like a great-grandchild of the Grinch, but with everything right where he is wrong."–Chuck Jones
Boris Karloff narrated, June Foray was the voice of Cindy-Lou Who and Thurl Ravenscroft (the voice of Tony the Tiger) sang "You're a Mean One, Mr. Grinch," which was composed by Albert Hague with lyrics by Ted Geisel (Dr. Seuss.)
"'Christmas day will always be, just as long as we have we."
