    Also Many pirates and Ghosts.. as well as the main singer for Grim Grinning Ghosts. *sniff* Thurl basically did the Disney animatronic voices that Paul Frees didn’t.

    I hear Ol’ Bill singing Yo Ho drunkenly and think that he sounds like Tony the Tiger on a bender. LOL

    He will certainly be missed.
