‘Twas the night before Christmas, and televisions everywhere were blasting my favorite holiday movie, ‘The Grinch!’ Both the classic Dr. Seuss cartoon and modern live-action comedy are airing on ABC on Dec. 24 — here’s why families should check out both!

Families will get two opportunities to catch The Grinch on Dec. 24 — ABC will be airing back-to-back features of Dr. Seuss‘ classic 1966 animated How The Grinch Stole Christmas and Jim Carrey‘s 2000 live-action re-make, The Grinch on Christmas Eve! Whether you have seen both before or are introducing the next generation of little ones to the story of holiday spirit’s conquering of greed, don’t miss the opportunity to share both versions of the classic tale!

‘Grinch’ Christmas Eve: Watch Dr. Seuss’ Classic & Jim Carrey’s Live-Action Film

There’s no better tale of the power of good will and generous spirit then The Grinch. It’s so easy to get lost in the commercialism of the holidays, but our overly greedy and mischievous Grinch friend is a yearly reminder to spread good cheer and spirit — especially when gift giving gets more stressful than satisfying.

The animated film crafted from Dr. Seuss’ original story is my personal favorite, because it continues to surprise me every time I watch it: a true passing of the test of time. I still tear up at the end when [SPOILER ALERT!] we learn the Grinch really does have a heart underneath that scary lime green fuzz after all.

Jim Carrey’s version of the film is great for kids who are more impressed by modern technologies — even though the film is already 14 years old (can you believe it!) the ferocious green makeup and elaborate costumes and camera tricks feel fresh and magical.

Check your local listings for exact air times of both Grinch movies on ABC: they are set to run one after the other at 8 p.m. E.S.T. It’s a great way to take in both and really compare their merits — but honestly, they’re most awesome when taken in together!

What do YOU think, HollywoodLifers? Do you prefer the classic Dr. Suess Grinch or Jim Carrey’s comical re-make?
