    Doctor Seuss's How The Grinch Stole Christmas Production Cel (MGM, 1966). "He took every present!... You're a mean one... MR GRINCH!" A hand-painted production cel of the Grinch as he is preparing to steal even the film from the camera (ensuring that there won't even be pictures of joy in Whoville) during his present theft run with Max. The cel is hand-signed by Director Mr. Chuck Jones (1912-2002) and is on a print background for presentation purposes. This image can be seen around the 18:17 mark into the film. A nice large image of 7.5", there is a Linda Jones seal on the cel and a COA on reverse of the 20" x 17.5" Plexiglas front frame. A fine image of the greedy red-eyed Grinch, and in Fine condition.
