Description

    Dr. Seuss' How the Grinch Stole Christmas Production Cel Setup and Master Background (MGM, 1966). "He didn't stop Christmas from coming... it came! Somehow or other, it came just the same!" Ho, ho, ho, what a great scene! This hand-painted multi-production cel setup of the Grinch and Max with their enormous bag stuffed with Whoville presents and decorations is simply amazing! It's a great climatic image with pink snow and horn blowing effects. You'll find the scene at about the 23.45 mark into the film. The cels are placed on a trimmed Master background from the much-loved TV Special, making this a rare Master setup. Director Chuck Jones hand-signed the overlay cel, which also includes a Linda Jones seal in the lower right corner. Matted, with an opening of 12" x 9" and framed with Plexiglas for an overall size of 17" x 14". Fine condition.
