    Description

    Dr. Seuss' How the Grinch Stole Christmas Grinch Production Cel (MGM, 1966). "Then he loaded some bags and some old empty sacks on a ramshackle sleigh, and he whistled for Max!" says narrator Boris Karloff as the Grinch begins his Christmas Eve raid on Whoville. This is a magnificent hand-painted production cel of the Grinch and it can be seen at the 8:32 mark in the film. The Grinch and his bundle of sacks measures an astounding 7" tall on a 12 field cel over a print of the original background. It's signed by the film's director, animation legend Chuck Jones (1912-2002) in the lower left and has a Linda Jones seal in the lower right. With a cel like this on your wall, every day is Christmas! Fine condition.
