    Doctor Seuss' How The Grinch Stole Christmas Grinch and Max Production Cel Setup (MGM, 1966). "Tomorrow is Christmas, It's Practically Here!!!!" This is simply the "best of the best" hand-painted production cel setup of both The Grinch and Max! It can be seen at about the 3:27 mark into this historic TV special. Classic pose, with both characters eye-to-eye -- notice the Grinch has red eyes; they don't turn blue until the end of the film, when he turns good! Amazing 5" and 7" images, matted with an opening of 11" x 9" and ornately framed with Plexiglas. Cel is hand-signed by director Chuck Jones (1912 - 2002) and includes a Linda Jones seal. Fine condition.
