    Dr. Seuss' How the Grinch Stole Christmas "You Really Are a Heel!" Limited Edition Cel #68/100 (MGM/Chuck Jones, 2000). "Then he stuck his head out of the fireplace flue where the little Who stockings hung all in a row. 'These stockings,' he grinched, 'are the first things to go!'" This is an exceptional, hand-painted, 12 field, limited edition cel, created from an original Chuck Jones line drawing. It comes from the scene where the Grinch says, "This is Stop #1!" Here he is, about to take away all the Who Christmas decorations and presents -- what a mean one! Great image, measuring 9". This long sold-out cel was limited to only 100 pieces, of which this is #68. Cel in on a print background, for presentation purposes. A Linda Jones seal is on the cel. This very low edition is hand-signed by the director of this classic television special, animation legend Mr. Chuck Jones. A stunning image! Very Good condition.
