    Description

    Doctor Seuss' How the Grinch Stole Christmas Deleted Scene Production Cel and Animation Drawing (MGM, 1966). This special, which has been shown every single year since its premiere in 1966, runs only 25 minutes without the commercials. This lot is made-to-order for the hard-core Grinch Collectors. It's a rare hand-painted production cel of the Grinch and Max on their sled as they ride down into Whoville to steal the presents, and comes with its matching animation drawing. This is the only animated scene that fell on the cutting room floor. It originally was part of the journey to Whoville, a fully animated scene that was edited out of the final cut. Rare to be sure; even rarer to have both the production cel and matching animation drawing! The cel is on a print background for presentation purposes. A Linda Jones seal is on the cel and drawing; an estate plate Chuck Jones signature is on the cel. A Linda Jones COA is included. Fun image of 3" x 2". Fine condition. From the Chuck Jones Archives.
