This holiday season, you can get a triple dose of the mean one we all know as Mr. Grinch, starting with the original 1966 animated classic, How the Grinch Stole Christmas, narrated by the late Boris Karloff. Jim Carrey of course then made the grouchy, green creature his own in the 2000 classic, followed by Benedict Cumberbatch’s version of The Grinch in 2018. No matter which version of this Dr. Seuss story you watch, you can’t help but hate to love the bitter Grinch. So as we get ready for Christmas this year, here are all the times The Grinch airs on TV in 2021.
