The holiday classic TV special is based on the 1957 book of the same title written by Dr. Seuss. Veteran horror film actor, Boris Karloff narrates the special and provides the voice of The Grinch who turns out to have **spoiler alert** a heart of gold. Everything about this program is special. While the original aired in 1966, it's still televised and watched by millions today.
