Brief Synopsis:
Jim Carrey stars in the most green adapation of a Dr Seuss book, as the Grinch, a monster who lives to hate Christmas, while a young girl tries to bring the spirit of the holidays back to his heart.

An official extended cut of the film has been airing on TV for years, so I have taken 2 airings of the TV Cut, with added scenes from the DVD to create the longest cut of the Ron Howard adaptation.

16 deleted, extended, and alternate scenes have masterfully restored and integrated into the film, adding back 18 minutes of new footage.
Knowing that the extended TV cut was only really avalible in low-bitrate quality, I wanted to make a better version that was watchable without the station logos or TV ad breaks, and felt a little more technically complete, so I thought to make this, with also another version with the deleted scenes from the DVD.

Editing Details:
All deleted scenes from the TV Cut had a station logo in the corner, so I had to combine 4:3 and 16:9 versions of the TV cut to create clean versions of the exclusive scenes. They were then upscaled and colour matched to the 2009 Blu-Ray.
The DVD scenes were also upscaled and colour corrected, and while they were more incomplete, they needed additional music, taken from the soundtrack of The Grinch and Casper, as both films were worked on by James Horner (RIP).
