    Dr. Seuss' How the Grinch Stole Christmas Max Animation Drawing Signed by Chuck Jones (MGM, 1966). The Grinch is so irritated at the thought of the nearby village having a good time celebrating Christmas that he decides he has to do something. So disguised as Santa Claus, with his dog Max made to look like a reindeer, he raids the village to steal all the Christmas things. In this lot is a wonderful drawing of poor little Max carrying a stolen sack of toys from the kids in Whoville. The image of Max with the sack measures 4.25" on 12 field, 3-peghole animation paper. The artwork was rendered in graphite. The piece is hand-signed by Chuck Jones (1912 - 2002). Affixed to the drawing is a seal from Linda Jones Enterprises which is noted as number 18. Included is a Certificate of Authenticity issued by Linda Jones. The drawing has mild age-related paper toning and edge wear. Otherwise, condition is Very Good.
