So Long, Foolish Mortal...

Thurl Ravenscroft has died, and that's sad.

Most of you have no idea who Thurl Ravenscroft is, but everyone has heard him. He was the voice of Tony the Tiger, primarily, but he did voice-over work for commercials and animation for years. He also sang the great "You're A Mean One, Mr. Grinch" for The Grinch Who Stole Christmas.

He also did a lot of work for Walt Disney, and was one of many voices scattered throughout the theme parks. My favorite is him as one of the busts singing "Grim Grinning Ghosts" in The Haunted Mansion...

A couple of sites have tributes:
