    Description

    Doctor Seuss' How the Grinch Stole Christmas Production Cel (MGM, 1966). "Then he slithered and slunked, with a smile most unpleasant around the room, and then he took every present!" A truly outstanding hand-painted production cel of the slithering Grinch, dressed up in his Santa costume. This scene was copied in the live action movie, as well as a Glee TV episode about the holidays. What a great expression! This can be seen around the 13:02 mark. The cel has a nice full-figure slithering image of 4", and is placed over a print background for presentation purposes. The cel was hand-signed by legendary animation director Chuck Jones (1912 - 2002). There is a Linda Jones seal on the cel, and a Jones COA included with the lot. Fine condition. From the Chuck Jones Archives.
