    Description

    Chuck Jones - "How The Grinch Stole Christmas" Pencil Animation Drawing Original Art (Turner Entertainment, 1966). Offered here is a stunning pencil drawing from the hand of the master himself, Chuck Jones. In this fondly-remembered sequence, an incredibly oily Grinch explains to little Cindy Lou Who how he's going to "fix" her Christmas tree at his workshop in the North Pole ("I'll fix it up there, and I'll bring it back here," the fake Santa Claus oozes). Production art from this seasonal favorite, based on the book by beloved children's author Theodore "Dr. Seuss" Geisel, is increasingly difficult to find, especially prime pieces like this one. The image area measures approximately 8" x 6.5", and the piece is in Excellent condition. It is signed by Jones in the lower right, and the piece bears a gold numbered seal from Linda Jones Enterprises attesting to its authenticity.
