RIP: Thurl Ravenscroft

It has recently been announced that Thurl Ravenscroft, the voice of Tony the Tiger and many others, died on Sunday from prostate cancer. He was 91 years old. He was famous for many roles, including work for Disney on films (Jungle Book, Mary Poppins, Lady and the Tramp) and attractions (Pirates, Country Bears, Haunted Mansion).
