    Description

    Doctor Seuss' How the Grinch Stole Christmas Production Cel (MGM, 1966). "It was a quarter of dawn. All the Whos still in bed, all the Whos still a-snooze." The last thing the Grinch takes before heading home is the Who's town center Christmas tree. This is a rare hand-painted production cel of the Grinch about to fold up the tree like an umbrella and toss it on his already overcrowded sleigh. The tree with the star on top is a full 6", and the great full-figure Grinch is 2".The cel is on a printed background for presentation purposes; it includes a Linda Jones seal and a Chuck Jones plate estate signature. A Linda Jones COA is included. Fine condition. From the Chuck Jones Archives.
