    Dr. Seuss' How the Grinch Stole Christmas Red-Eyed Grinch Close-Up Production/Recreation Cel Setup Signed by Chuck Jones (MGM, 1966). "I must find some way to keep Christmas from coming!" growls the Grinch to Max, his faithful dog companion. Oh, that cruel Grinch, with his heart two sizes too small! No doubt about it... he's a mean one! Here's a superb close-up of this Dr. Seuss character in an original hand-painted 12 field vertical production cel, as seen in online viewings at the 3:35 mark, as he complains about all the "NOISE! NOISE! NOISE!" he hears coming from Whoville down in the valley. This large image has an approximate overall size of 5.25" x 7.5"; the upper teeth portion is a hand-inked, hand-painted recreation cel, expertly done by a Linda Jones Enterprises artist using the original Chuck Jones animation drawings. Speaking of Animation Legend Chuck Jones (1912 - 2002), he hand-signed this cel in bold, black marker. The cel setup includes a large Linda Jones holograph seal, and also includes a 2011 Linda Jones Certificate of Authenticity. The blue background is a photo print, added for presentation purposes. Cel condition is Very Good with minor handling wear.
