Dr. Seuss' How the Grinch Stole Christmas Grinch in Santa Suit Production Cel with Recreated Cel Overlay (MGM, 1966). "You're a mean one, Mr. Grinch. You really are a heel. You're as cuddly as a cactus. You're as charming as an eel!" What more can you say about this green-furred cad? Here's the red-eyed rotter in his phony Santa Claus suit, right after stealing every bit of the Who's Christmas, as seen at the 20:18 mark in online viewings. The Grinch's head (and his Santa hat) are on an original hand-painted 12 field production cel, while his body image was recreated on a hand-painted cel; the head size is approximately 3" x 3.75", while the complete image measures 6" x 9", set against a blue paper background. Included on the cel is a small Linda Jones holograph seal and an autopen Chuck Jones Estate signature in the lower left. A 2001 Linda Jones Certificate of Authenticity is included. Cel setup is in Fine condition.
