image-1Tonight, Dec. 18, ABC Family broadcasts the live-action Jim Carrey film How The Grinch Stole Christmas from 2000. Let us not speak of it again lest it sully our memories of the classic 1966 cartoon "How the Grinch Stole Christmas!" which isn’t just one of the best Christmas specials, but is one of the best pieces of animation made for television of any kind. Chuck Jones, who... | more...

English funnyman Rowan Atkinson is one of the last, best practitioners of old-school physical comedy and sight gags, which have won him international fame through his bumbling man-child alter ego, Mr. Bean. Mr. Bean: The Ultimate Collection, which goes on sale today, is one of those unbelievably exhaustive DVD sets that gathers seemingly every Bean appearance and piece of pop ephemera in... | more...

Schulz's "Peanuts" comic strip was broadcast in 1965 and featured many unusual touches, such as the casting of children (many of them inexperienced) as voice actors, the Vince Guaraldi jazz-piano... | more...

I thought I was going to have an experience out of Tim Burton's The Nightmare Before Christmas yesterday. I was taking my daughter to "Breakfast With Santa" at her kindergarten, and the first thing I saw when we pulled into the parking lot was a hearse, because the church part of the building was having a funeral that morning. It made me flash on Jack Skellington and his coffin-shaped... | more...
