    Dr. Seuss' How The Grinch Stole Christmas Grinch and Max Production Cel Signed by Chuck Jones (MGM, 1966). "Tomorrow is Christmas, It's Practically Here!!!!" This is simply the "best of the best" hand-painted production cel setup of both The Grinch and Max! It can be seen at about the 3:27 mark into this historic TV special. Classic pose, with both characters eye-to-eye -- notice the Grinch has red eyes; they don't turn blue until the end of the film, when his heart grows a few sizes! Amazing 5" and 7" images, hand-painted on 12 field acetate and framed to 21" x 18" with an aperture of 11" x 8". Frame sold as-is. Cel is hand-signed by legendary director Chuck Jones (1912 - 2002). Includes a Linda Jones seal and COA. Fine condition.
