    Dr. Seuss' How the Grinch Stole Christmas Grinch and Max Production Cel Setup (MGM, 1966). "I must stop Christmas from coming!' Then he got an idea... an awful idea... a wonderful awful idea. 'I'll make a quick Santee Claus hat and a coat. What a great Grinchee trick! With this coat, and this hat, I'll look just like St. Nick!" This is a rare hand-painted production cel setup of the Grinch and Max in a great 2-cel setup from a key scene in the film! It can be seen around the 8:20 mark. The outstanding full-figure images measure 3" and 6". The cel is on a print background for presentation purposes, with a Linda Jones seal on the front, and a Linda Jones COA on the reverse of the frame. The cel is signed by the film's director, animation legend Chuck Jones. In Fine condition.
