    Doctor Seuss' How the Grinch Stole Christmas Grinch Animation Drawing and Limited Edition Cel (MGM 1966). "The three words that best describe you are as follows, and I quote -- STINK... STANK... STUNK!" An exceptional original 12 field production drawing of the Grinch stealing the leaves off the poinsettia plant. This drawing was used to make a rare hand-painted 1 of 1 cel. Both the original 1966 production animation drawing and the hand-painted limited edition cel are hand-signed by Chuck Jones (1912 - 2002), who directed this classic TV holiday special. The drawing and cel are in one common mat with a double aperture; the cel is on a print background for presentation purposes. The drawing of the Grinch has an image size of 7", with an unbelievable facial expression! A Linda Jones seal is on both cel and drawing, and a COA is on back of the frame. Framed with Plexiglas, for an overall size of 35" x 18.5". Fine condition.
