    Dr. Seuss' How the Grinch Stole Christmas "Just Like St. Nick" Limited Edition Cel #42/150 (MGM/Chuck Jones, 1999). "I know just what to do. I'll make a quick Santy Claus hat and a coat!" This is an outstanding, 12 field, hand-painted, limited edition cel of the Grinch, with Max, making his Santa Costume. It was made off an original Chuck Jones line drawing, and released in 1999 in an edition of only 150. It was an immediate sell-out. This is the classic image, where we first hear the song "You're a Mean One... Mr. Grinch" in the film. You can see this image at around the 8:15 mark. Great images, with sizes of 5" and 7". The cel is on a print background for presentation purposes. A Linda Jones seal is on the cel and a Linda Jones COA is included. Please note, this hand-painted cel is hand-signed by the director of this classic television special, animation great Chuck Jones (1912-2002). Very Good condition.
