    Description

    Dr. Seuss' How the Grinch Stole Christmas Production Cel Setup (MGM, 1966). "Then he got an idea... an awful idea... a WONDERFUL, awful idea! What a Grinchy trick... with this coat and this hat, I'll look just like St. Nick!" One of the most memorable scenes in this beloved holiday TV special can be seen at the 8:36 mark. It used a held cel with the only animation being the arms and red fabric. This is the original 12 field hand-painted production cel of the Grinch's arms and red fabric sewing his Santa Suite. It's a 5-cel setup with four custom hand-painted personation cels to complete the scene. Cels are on a print background for presentation purposes. A Linda Jones seal and an estate plate-printed Chuck Jones signature are both on the top cel. Also included is a Linda Jones Certificate of Authenticity. This is a WOW cel setup from a key scene in a a true holiday classic. Condition is Fine.
