    Description

    Doctor Seuss' How the Grinch Stole Christmas Grinch and Max Production Cel and Animation Drawing Signed by Chuck Jones (MGM, 1966). "The Grinch got a wonderful awful idea! I know just what to do, the Grinch laughed in his throat... I'll make a quick Santy Claus hat and a coat!" If you collect Grinch artwork, this is one of the most unique lots we have come across. In the film, we see the Grinch behind the red material as he cuts the cloth to make the costume. This is the actual hand-painted production cel and production animation drawing of the Grinch behind the red material making his costume. Both the drawing and the production cel of the Grinch are hand-signed by the director, animation legend Mr. Chuck Jones. Both pieces also have a Linda Jones seal and COA included. Both the cel and drawing have custom-painted and inked overlays that showcase how these production pieces looked in the film. Fine condition. From the Chuck Jones Archives.
