Is that the one where a robotic Santa shoots people? I liked it!

Also, 3 movie adaptations of A Christmas Carol:
A Christmas Carol (1984 TV movie) with George C. Scott, and Edward Woodward in an amazing performance as The Ghost of Christmas Present
Scrooge (1970 Musical) with Albert Finney
A Christmas Carol (1951 film) with Alastair Sim

Absolute heresy. If Boris Karloff isn't narrating it ain't the Grinch. That said:

Original Grinch. Having a low bass singing voice I simply love singing along with Boris Karloff.
Charlie Brown Christmas. I'm amazed it's still shown given the overt Christianity of Linus' speech.
A Christmas Story. I'll never get tired of Ralphie, a Major Award, and the lug nuts.

Have a DVD copy. Watched it once and retired the DVD into the back files. While it's nice to have a copy just to tweak Lucas, it's still unwatchable.

As a kid I always liked whichever one it is that had Heat Miser and Snow Miser. But other than watching A Christmas Story at a dinner theater a few years ago (seriously, and they gave away a leg-lamp as a door prize, which I did not win) I haven't seen a Christmas movie in years.

If you don't have it on VHS, you don't really have it. (With the title written in marker on a piece of tape)
