    Description

    Dr. Seuss' How the Grinch Stole Christmas Storyboard and First Day Stamped Envelope (MGM, 1966). "He hadn't stopped Christmas from coming -- It came! Somehow or other, it came... just the SAME!" Just as the Grinch's eyes go blue, he and Max leap to save the sled full of Who presents from falling off the cliff. This is an outstanding Chuck Jones hand-painted storyboard from this Key Scene, with a great close-up of the Grinch. Art is in graphite and gouache on a MGM storyboard panel. The MGM logo is in bottom right corner. In the dialogue box below the art, it reads "Grinch heart swells." A Christmas-themed first day envelope cover from 1982 is included, signed by both Chuck Jones and Dr. Seuss. The art and envelope cover are matted together; the Grinch opening is 7" x 6", and the setup is framed with glass for an overall size of 17" x 14". Frame is sold as-is. Art condition is Good.
