    Dr. Seuss' How the Grinch Stole Christmas Grinch Production Cel and Drawing Signed by Chuck Jones (MGM, 1966). "They're just waking up! I know just what they'll do! Their mouths will hang open a minute or two, then the Whos down in Whoville will all cry boo-hoo!" The Santa-suited Grinch races to hear the sounds of disappointment from a cliff high above Whoville, in this scene from the 20:12 mark. In this lot is an original hand-painted production cel of the Grinch. This full-figure image of the title character measures 3" x 4.5" on a 12 field cel over a print background. Along with the cel is the matching graphite 12 field production drawing. Both pieces have a Linda Jones seal and a signature by director Chuck Jones (1912 - 2002). This pair of remarkable production pieces from one of the greatest holiday TV specials of all time comes with a Certificate of Authenticity. In a double aperture frame of 36" x 19". Minor handling and condition of the art is Very Good.
