    Description

    Dr. Seuss' How the Grinch Stole Christmas Blue-Eyed Grinch Production Cel Signed by Chuck Jones (MGM, 1966). "Maybe Christmas, he thought, doesn't come from a store. Maybe Christmas... perhaps... means a little bit more." When the Grinch realizes that there's more to Christmas than gifts, he transforms from cold-hearted, red-eyed Grinch to a soft-hearted blue-eyed friend to all Whos. This is an original hand-painted production cel of a very rare blue-eyed Grinch from the 22:33 mark of this beloved holiday TV classic. This enchanting image of the title character measures approximately 3.5" x 5", bears a Linda Jones holographic seal and is signed by Chuck Jones (1912 - 2002) though the signature is faded. This key scene truly sums up the moral of this popular Christmas tale and is a must-have for any Grinch, Chuck Jones or Dr. Seuss collector. The production cel is paired with a background copy/print for presentation purposes. The art is in a 21.5" x 19.5" frame under Plexiglas with an aperture of 11.5" x 9". Included is a Certificate of Authenticity issued by Linda Jones. Condition is Very Good. Frame is sold as-is.
