    Description

    Doctor Seuss' How The Grinch Stole Christmas Production Cel (MGM, 1966). "I know just what to do (the Grinch laughed in his throat)... I'll make a quick Santa Claus hat and a coat!" Outstanding hand-painted production cel of a full-figured Grinch. This is at about 7:48 into the short, when he plucks Max out of the snow where he is hiding. This may be the largest Grinch we have seen, measuring about 9" tall! The cel is hand-signed by the special's director, animation legend Chuck Jones (1912 - 2002), and includes a Linda Jones seal. Matted with an opening of 11" x 9", and nicely framed with Plexiglas. Fine condition.
