    Description

    Doctor Seuss' How the Grinch Stole Christmas Production Cel Setup (MGM, 1966). "And he loaded some bags and some old empty sacks on a ramshackle sleigh... and he whistled for Max!" Like any puppy would, Max thinks he's going for a ride and jumps to the front of the sleigh. The Grinch's reaction to this is simply perfect! This is one great hand-painted production cel of the Grinch in full Santa costume, with an image size of 9". This scene occurs about 10:03 into the special. This is a 2 cel setup, with the sacks on a separate level. A Linda Jones seal is on the top cel, and her COA is included. The cel was hand-signed by the man himself, Mr. Chuck Jones (1912 - 2002). Images this good are getting harder and harder to find from this beloved holiday favorite. Fine condition. From the Chuck Jones Archives.
