    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 his cold-hearted, red-eyed self to a big-hearted blue-eyed friend to all Whos. This is an original hand-painted production cel of the highly sought after blue-eyed Grinch from the 22:30 mark of this beloved holiday classic. The enchanting image of the title character clutching his dog Max's paw measures approximately 5.25" x 9.5" and is the largest of it's kind we have ever offered. The cel bears a Linda Jones holographic seal in the lower left and is signed by Chuck Jones (1912 - 2002) in the lower right. 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 art is in a 21" x 19" frame under Plexiglas with a mat opening of 12" x 9.5. Condition is Very Good. Frame is sold as-is.
