Does james earl jones sing the mr. Grinch song in the warner bros cartoon version?

No, it was Thurl Ravenscroft who sang the song “You’re a Mean One, Mr. Grinch”, for the classic 1966 Dr. Seuss TV Holiday Special How The Grinch Stole Christmas.

The song appears three times in the special, starting when The Grinch begins crafting his impostor Santa suit. Each time it plays, we hear more about the despicable green guy, who eventually grows a heart.

Of interest, MSG Entertainment will present Dr. Seuss' How The Grinch Stole Christmas! The Musical at the Theater at Madison Square Garden beginning December 5 through Sunday, December 28. The limited engagement in New York City has been called "100 times better than any bedside story," by The New York Times. Find out more at Broadway World.
