"How The Grinch Stole Christmas" (1966) - Chuck Jones Signed Cels

Merry Christmas and Season's Greetings!

Since I will be away for part of December, I thought this would be a good opportunity to post some Christmas/Holiday related art. To see other holiday related items, select "Category-Holiday" from the "Content by Category" list on the right.

Christmas would not be complete without something from "How The Grinch Stole Christmas!"

Here are two great cels signed by Chuck Jones. The two are mounted in a single frame, with Cindy Lou slightly lower to maintain the Grinch's sight-line. I liked the fact that Cindy Lou was looking at the wreath, unaware of the Grinch's motives. A nice set that speak not only to the season, but the opposing "spirits" of the Christmas season.
