    Dr. Seuss' How the Grinch Stole Christmas "Blue-Eyed-Grinch" Production Cel Signed by Chuck Jones (MGM, 1966). "He didn't stop Christmas from coming... it came! Somehow or other... it came just the same!" An amazing production cel setup of the Grinch and that enormous bag stuffed with Whoville presents and decorations. This is after the Grinch's eyes change from red to blue, when he finally understands the true meaning of Christmas, occurring near the 23:46 mark. The image is hand-painted on 12 field acetate and presented over a print background for presentation purposes. The cel is signed by the legendary animator, Chuck Jones (1912 - 2002). Jones met Ted Geisel in 1943 when the two were working on the Private Snafu propaganda shorts. Geisel is better known by his "nom de plume" Dr. Seuss. The two would make a number of films together including Horton Hears a Who and How the Grinch Stole Christmas. A Linda Jones seal is on one cel, and a Linda Jones COA is included. Fine condition. Let the trumpets blow!
