    Dr. Seuss' How the Grinch Stole Christmas The Grinch and Max Production Cel and Animation Drawing (MGM 1966). The Grinch and Max make their way though wintry landscape in route to Whoville in this original production cel and matching drawing from this Christmastime classic directed by the legendary Chuck Jones (1912 - 2002). This adorable scene occurs around the 11:30 mark during their harrowing sleigh ride through the mountains down to Whoville. The 1.5" x 1.25" drawing is rendered in graphite with the slightest hint off red penciling on 12 field paper. The matching cel is presented over a print of the original background to complete the scene. The images from this familiar scene are exquisitely detailed. Both drawing and cel bear a Linda Jones seal, Chuck Jones Estate plate signature and come with individual Certificates of Authenticity. They share a common 26" x 18" Plexiglas-front frame with dual mat openings of 9" x 12". Light handling; condition is Fine.
