    Description

    Dr. Seuss' How The Grinch Stole Christmas Production Cel Setup (MGM, 1966). "He hadn't stopped Christmas from coming! It came just the same!" This is an incredibly rare hand-painted 16 field production multi-cel setup taken from a key scene from the classic animated holiday special -- the Whos in Whoville singing "Welcome Christmas" and celebrating regardless of the Grinch stealing their tree, decorations, and presents, with the Christmas star shining bright in the center of the Whos' hand-to-hand circle. This cel has the Linda Jones seal and is signed by Chuck Jones. Placed over print background, for presentation purposes. Plexiglas front framed to 22.5" x 19.5" with an inner mat opening of 15" x 12".
