12/23/11: How the Grinch Stole Christmas

"Cuddly as a Cactus" and "Charming as an Eel" hardly seem like descriptions of a beloved Christmas character, but fans of Dr. Seuss will immediately recognize the mean Mr. Grinch. From the 1957 children's book and the 1966 television adaptation, How the Grinch Stole Christmas is for many an integral part of the holiday season. Tuesday, we're talking about Dr. Seuss's tale and offering you a new reading by the actor Tobin Atkinson. (Rebroadcast)How the Grinch Stole Christmas
