    Chuck Jones Productions - "Dr. Seuss' How the Grinch Stole Christmas" Hand Painted Production Cel Original Art (1966). With all the tender sweetness of a seasick crocodile, Mr. Grinch fabricates a story of a defective Christmas tree light to Cindy Lou Who, in this cel from the perennial holiday favorite, "How the Grinch Stole Christmas". Chuck Jones produced and directed this yuletide mainstay in 1966, which has since become a traditional part of television's Christmas season. Animation cels and drawings from this classic are highly desirable and increasingly hard to find, and this one is a beauty! The art measures approximately 10" x 8.5" and is in Excellent condition. From the collection of Richard and Wendy Pini. Richard says: "Another find from 'How The Grinch Stole Christmas' -- I can hear the oily verses of what I called 'the Grinch song' even now. He is indeed a mean one!"
