    Horton Hears a Who Production Cel (MGM, 1970). "In the heat of the day, in the cool of the pool" is how we first see Horton as he is bathing under the waterfall. This Chuck Jones-directed television special based on the Dr. Seuss story, premiered on CBS on 3/19/70. This is an outstanding hand-painted production cel of Horton that we see at the opening of the film at about the 1:13 mark. Great full-figure image of 10.5". This is a two-cel set up with water effects on its own level. Cel has a Linda Jones seal and is hand-signed by animation superstar, Mr. Chuck Jones (1912 - 2002). This is one of the finest Horton production cels we have come across! In a frame of 19" x 17" with a mat opening of 11" x 9". Frame is sold as-is. Artwork is in Very Good condition.
