"He rode into Who-ville, he brought back their toys." The Grinch becomes the hero as he returns to Whoville and hands out the presents. This is an original production cel from the Chuck Jones/MGM Studios animated Christmas classic, How the Grinch Stole Christmas! (1966). This hand-painted cel features a rare image of the Grinch with blue eyes, after his change of heart. The cel was created at the studio and used during production, representing an actual frame of animation that was photographed and appears in the cartoon about 24:06 into the film. The cel is hand-signed by legendary animator Chuck Jones and is paired with a color printed reproduction of the matching background. The overall measurements of the piece are 16.5" x 18.5" framed with the mat opening measuring 9.5" x 11.5" and the image itself measures 5.5" x 5.5". The cel is in very good condition.
