    Since Chuck Jones' 1966 TV Special How the Grinch Stole Christmas was a TV speical, and thus created for televsion i felt posting my question would be more suitable for here than the Film and Documentary board.

    What are the Chances of Warner Home Video ever reissuing The Grinch in a keepcase?

    Actually it's a tele-film and doesn't belong in the TV Shows forum.[​IMG]

    So I'm guessing that the "tele" in "tele-film" stands for "Television." If it doesn't, could you please explain what it does stand for, and in which forum the question should be asked?

    Jimmy!

    tele-film stands for televised film/movie. A movie created specifically for the television networks and not made for the big screen.

    Actually the package doesnt bother me, but I would like to see a Grinch that was color corrected. The current release is *ALL* messed up! The Grinch is kind of mustard brown instead of the pea green that he originaly was.

    (And hopefuly we'd get new commentary with it. The one on the disc now is dreadful.)

    I thought there was a color-corrected reissue a few years back? Unfortunately I too have the goldish color one as well. BUT did notice within the included making of documentary that he is very green in color so there is a correct color print somewhere.

    What's the scoop?

    I think a duel-to-the-death between the original two-dimensional hand-drawn Grinch and the one-dimensional live-action Jim Carrey Grinch needs to occur.

    So why wouldn't the question belong in the TV Shows forum? [​IMG]

    I suppose we could worry less about the correct forum for the question (that's why the admins get paid the big bucks! [​IMG] ) and consider more Kevin's question of whether a re-issue should be forth-coming.

    I think it's a great idea! Too bad Thurl Ravenscroft wouldn't be around to contribute on any commentary/features.

    Sorry, I just couldn't figure out the reasoning.

    I would love a properly remastered Grinch, with more significant extras.

    Jimmy!
