This sweet vintage holiday tee celebrates one of the most beloved animated Christmas stories, How the Grinch Stole Christmas. Based on the classic children's book by Dr. Seuss, the television special brings to life the story of the Grinch, a grouchy, green creature who hates the holiday season. In the story, the Grinch famously disguises himself as Santa Claus in a dastardly attempt to steal all of the Christmas presents and decorations from the town of Whoville, but by the end he learns that Christmas is about more than just material items.

The Grinch's story is one of the most beloved during the holiday season. Its popularity has even caused the word grinch to become a common colloquialism for someone who dislikes Christmas. There's been multiple adaptations of the tale over time, including an incredibly successful live action film starring Jim Carrey, but this shirt highlights the 1966 animated television special, which was first broadcast on CBS. This adaptation was famously narrated by Boris Karloff, the actor best known for bringing Frankenstein's monster to life, and this version also spawned the now infamous song "You're a Mean One, Mr. Grinch", which has since become a Christmas classic thanks to its jazzy tune and Thurl Ravenscroft's deep, throaty singing voice.

Fits like a modern unisex adult Extra Large. There's some light fading along the top, see pics.
