    Description

    Dr. Seuss' How the Grinch Stole Christmas Max Production Cel Signed by Chuck Jones Sequence of 4 (MGM, 1966). "10,000 feet up, up the side of Mt. Crumpit, he rode with his load to the tip top to dump it." The Grinch's dog Max is featured here in this spectacular sequence of a whopping four hand-painted original production cels from the celebrated holiday special Dr. Seuss' How the Grinch Stole Christmas. Seen at the 10:48, 19:44, 19:44 and 22:36 marks of the special, each of these fantastic 12 field cels (one is a setup) is signed by director and legendary animator Chuck Jones. Each piece bears a Linda Jones Enterprises seal, and each is accompanied by a Certificate of Authenticity. While the first of these pieces is presented horizontally, it is a vertical setup seen during the sequence in which Max and the Grinch ride down Mt. Crumpit to Whoville. This is a great set of images featuring poor Max attached to the Grinch's ramshackle sleigh. The cels are all displayed on printed backgrounds for presentation purposes, and one shows tearing in the lower right peghole. The cels otherwise show minor handling and edge wear, and the condition of this rare set is Very Good.
