    Dr. Seuss' How the Grinch Stole Christmas Max Holding the Bag Production Cel (MGM, 1966). "Pop guns, pampoogas, pantookas and drums! Checkerboards, bizilbigs, popcorn and plums! And then he stuffed them in bags. Then the Grinch very nimbly stuffed all the bags, one by one, up the chimney." The Grinch's down-trodden canine companion Max struggles with an overloaded bag of Christmas goodies in this original hand-painted 12 field production cel. Max is a great character, steadfastly devoted to his master, no matter what rotten trick he's up to; you can bet he'd rather not be lifting these heavy bags, though! The image of Max with his "antler" and bag have an approximate overall size of 4.5" x 4.25". The cel is placed on a scene-matched photo print background, added for presentation purposes. The cel is noted as 44 in the lower right corner, and includes a large Linda Jones holograph seal. A 2001 Linda Jones Certificate of Authenticity is included. Cel condition is Fine with light handling wear.
