How the Grinch Stole Christmas TV Guide Ad (1966)

The Grinch premiered on Sunday, December 18, 1966.

I’d completely forgotten about the TV Guide layout itself, and check out the shows listed on just these pages—Mission: Impossible, Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea, Walt Disney’s World (full title: Walt Disney’s Wonderful World of Color), Wild Kingdom, and the always invaluable Your Astrology Guide. You will never see a description like the following for any TV show ever again:

The Seaview becomes a den of terror when a virus again transforms Admiral Nelson into a werewolf.

Instead we get shit like this:

The murder of a local military academy’s first female cadet is investigated after her body is discovered in a buried foot locker.

Kiss my ass, 21st century television programming.
