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.


Seuss wrote the lyrics and Albert Hague wrote the music. 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. The version played on radio is a combination of the three show uses.

How The Grinch Stole Christmas was a book before it was made into a movie. Warner Brothers legend Chuck Jones did the animation.

In the movie, The Grinch is voiced by Boris Karloff, a famous horror movie actor. This led many people to believe he recorded the song.
