Happy Birthday and RIP Thurl Ravenscroft.

From Tony the Tiger to Shere Kahn he had an incredible voice.

Who doesn't love him singing "You're a mean one Mr. Grinch" from How the Grinch Stole Christmas.

To simply put it HE'S GREEEEEAAAAAAT!

@Autovolt Plus, he also sang "No Dogs Allowed" in a Peanuts movie called "Snoopy, Come Home"

It's a common mistake that he was the singing voice of Shere Khan, when in fact Sanders did all his own singing.

@BlankSlate Maybe not in the final version of the movie, but Thurl definitely voiced Shere Khan for the song that is in the clip, which was cut during production.
