    Dr. Seuss' How the Grinch Stole Christmas Blue-Eyed Grinch Production Cel (MGM, 1966). "He brought everything back, even all the food for the feast. And he himself, the Grinch, carved the roast beast!" The Grinch turns from red-eyed and cold-hearted to blue-eyed and good natured, in this rare excellent original hand-painted production cel of him carving the roast beast at the film's finale. He carves and hands off a slice to both Cindy Lou Who and Max. This exact cel can be seen at the 24:23 mark in the short. This outstanding Key Scene image measures 6". Matted with an opening of 11" x 9", framed with Plexiglas for an overall size of 20" x 18". Cel has a Linda Jones seal and COA on back of the frame. The cel is hand-signed by the director, animation legend Mr. Chuck Jones (1912 - 2002). Please note: the dedication "Merry Christmas - Chuck Jones" is on the back of the frame. Frame is sold as-is, cel condition is Very Good.
