    Description

    Dr. Seuss' How The Grinch Stole Christmas The Grinch Animation Drawing (MGM, 1966). "Tomorrow is Christmas, it's practically here!" exclaims the Grinch to his faithful dog Max. This original production drawing features a 7.5" tall graphite rendering of the Grinch in profile. The detail in his face is amazing and you can see this scene at the 3:20 mark as he begins to formulate his plan to bring an end to Christmas. The Grinch's hand is missing as it and Max were animated separately. The drawing is on a 12 field 3-peghole sheet of animation paper and numbered 29 in the lower right corner. The bottom edge of the paper has been cut off, repositioned and taped back onto the sheet to shift the alignment of the pegholes. Original artwork from this holiday classic is becoming scarcer by the day. The paper shows minor handling, smudges and erasures. Condition is Very Good.
