Image of the Day: Two Sizes Too Small

"…The Grinch hated Christmas, the whole Christmas season.  Please don't ask why, no one quite knows the reason.

"It could be perhaps his shoes were too tight.

"It could be his head wasn't screwed on just right.

"But I think the most likely reason of all may have been that his heart was two sizes too small.

"But whatever the reason, his heart or his shoes…"

Imagine it's December 18, 1966.  You, your brothers and sisters, your Mom and Dad, are gathered around the brand new color television console in the den, ready to watch an animated Christmas special based on one of your favorite books, Dr. Seuss' How the Grinch Stole Christmas.  And just one-half hour later a new family tradition has been begun.  And every year thereafter, for the next forty-three years, it just isn't Christmas until you've watched the "Grinch."

Two Sizes Too Small, a hand-painted cel art edition of just 135 examples, was created from original art used in the production of the Chuck Jones directed 1966 television special, Dr. Seuss' How the Grinch Stole Christmas.

    My children don’t understand my fascination with Chuck Jones as art, Guess it is before their time.
