Not only was he Tony the Tiger…….

Amazing voiceover artist, Thurl Ravenscroft, passed away on May the 22nd. He lent his voice talents to hundreds of movies, cartoons and commercials. Most notably, he was the voice of Tony the Tiger of Frosted Flakes fame. Also, he sings all of the songs in the beloved Christmas Classid “How the Grinch Stole Christmas”. The reason this news article is posted here on TORn is, he is also the singer of a song we all know and love, “Fifteen birds, in five fir trees. Their feathers were fanned, in a fiery breeze”. Recognize that? You should! Yes, he sings it in the Rankin/Bass version of “The Hobbit”, and also lends his voice to one of the Goblins. [More]
