Bing Crosby’s Crooning Salute in This 1949 Disney Classic Called “The Headless Horseman” based on Washington Irving’s Story!
Before Bing Crosby signed on for this one-time collaboration with Disney, another man named Thurl Ravenscroft, the voice of Tony the tiger and also the mean one…Mr. Grinch, did his own version which was never used by Disney in the film. Bing was ultimately chosen as the narrator for “The Legend of Sleepy Hollow,” but here are both. You can compare it to Mr. Ravenscroft’s version in the second link below along with some interesting facts about this 1949 essential classic for Halloween. Bing’s tone is lighter and more carefree, while Thurl’s is a bit darker and more menacing. Who else would share this minutia, along with some other bits on the second link below?
