    Idea for Thurl Ravenscroft tribute...

    This weekend while looking at the tombstones in front of the haunted mansion I had a thought. Since Mr. Ravenscroft contributed so much to many aspects of Disney it would be nice if some type of subtle memorial was established. My idea? In true Disney fashion, place a new tombstone in front of HM marked 'Thurl Ravencroft.' Let there be a catchy epitaph or not I think it could be nice.

    Am I just weird? Any thoughts?

    I love the idea! I hope Disney does something for Thurl.

    It kinda made me sad as we passed the singing the busts and heard Fritz inthe Tiki Room....and Pierre/Lumiere for Jerry Orbach. I just kept thinking all these voices are now gone.

    I don't know how I missed this thread. Where have I been? Anywho... I'm with you, Disney should most definitely pay some tribute to dear Thurl. A tombstone at the HM would be a GREAT memorial.

    Restless bones etherealize rise as spooks of every size
    Grim grinning ghosts come out to socialize!
