Playhouse Video, a division of CBS/FOX Video, was the main distributor for Grinch Night and all other Dr. Seuss specials on VHS. When originally released in 1985 on VHS, Grinch Night was the only Dr. Seuss special presented alone. The film was re-packaged along with all other specials in 1989.
After Playhouse Video became defunct, distribution rights for Grinch Night and two other Dr. Seuss videos were sold to Random House Home Video. They re-released all three videos on April 21, 1992. Later on August 6, 1996, a "sing-along" version was released by 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment, followed by a re-packaging in 1997.
Finally, late in 1998, 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment's last re-release of Grinch Night on VHS (without the sing-along lyrics) also included Green Eggs and Ham and Other Stories.
