    He also sang the ever-popular classic: "You're a Mean One, Mr. Grinch"

    According to IMDb, his voice was in many films, uncredited. Obviously he was generous and humble too.

    :( :crying_sa :( :crying_sa :(

    I just saw an interview with him, but I can't remember where it was. Seemed like a very nice man. A voice we all grew up with. Well, maybe not Nick, I think he predates packaged cereal and television. ;)

    I know that guy's voice! In the haunted mansion he says "Is this room actually stretching? Or is it your imagination?". I also remember hearing his voice on the Pirates of the Caribbean ride.

    I never knew he was even still alive. RIP Thurl.

    He? His? Him?

    So far, none of you overly-sensitive, caring souls have even bothered to mention "his" full name.
    His name is Thurl Ravenscroft.

    Thurl, You were GRRREAT!

    R.I.P. :engel07:

    In the wonderful world of curmudgery, we call it editing. It is allowed...

    Nick predates dirt.

    I miss the old Tony the Tiger commercials. Every time I saw one of them, there was an immediate connection back to a simpler, kinder, age.
