    Description

    Doctor Seuss' How the Grinch Stole Christmas Production Cel Setup (MGM, 1966). "You're a mean one, Mr. Grinch!" Outstanding hand-painted production cel of the Grinch, from where he is at the foot of the bed of the sleeping Who children. He breaks into a grin and then steals the candy canes they are clutching. You can see this at about the 14:44 mark. Great image of 5". This is a 2-cel setup with the Grinch head being production and the Grinch hat, which was a held cel, being re-created. The hand-painted production cel is on a print background for presentation purposes. The director and animation legend, Mr. Chuck Jones (1912 -2002) has hand-signed the cel; it includes a Linda Jones seal and a Linda Jones COA. What a pose! Fine condition. From the Chuck Jones Archives.
