    Dr. Seuss' How the Grinch Stole Christmas Grinch and Toys Production Cel Setup Signed by Chuck Jones (MGM, 1966). "You nauseate me, Mr. Grinch, with a nauseous super 'naus'! You're a crooked dirty jockey and you drive a crooked hoss, Mr. Grinch!" Seen near the 17:33 mark of the classic Chuck Jones-directed holiday special How the Grinch Stole Christmas, this is spectacular hand-painted original 12 field production cel setup signed by Chuck Jones (1912 - 2002) himself. The cel is presented over a print background for presentation purposes. In addition, it comes with a Linda Jones Enterprises seal and Certificate of Authenticity. This is a great full-figure depiction of the Grinch in a characteristically sinister crouching pose, featuring the sickly playful moment in which the Grinch winds up toys only for them to walk into his sacks. The piece is framed to 21.5" x 19" under Plexiglas with an aperture of 11" x 8.75". Frame sold as-is. Cel condition is Very Good.
