“You’re a Mean One, Mister Grinch,” Thurl Ravenscroft, 1966
Thrul Ravenscroft (the voice of Kellogg’s Tony the Tiger for 50+ years) was not credited for singing this tune from the classic TV special “How the Grinch Stole Christmas!” I’ve always loved the Seuss-ian lyrics like ‘thirty-nine-and-a-half-foot-pole’ and ‘nasty wasty skunk.’
Trivia: The Grinch was the first main character in a Dr. Seuss book to be a villain as well as the first adult main character.
