Trivia and Quotes

    • Jim Cummings: I work with Famous Fone Friends and The Make-A-Wish Foundation and they'll often call me as a request that a little one wants to talk to Tigger or Darkwing Duck or Taz or Pooh. It's one of the best perks I'll ever have had to be able to call up someone who's sick and [in Pooh's voice] Pooh bear just tells them, "Take your vitamins and you'll be better." It's a real bonus.

    • Cummings: You know you've made it when you become a Jeopardy question.

    • Cummings: Once I was reading a story to my daughter, and I was going nuts doing each of the voices. She finally rolled her eyes at me and said in this exasperated little voice, 'Dad, just read the story, okay?'

    • Cummings: Darkwing Duck and Don Karnage are the most fun to do, because they're both probably the closest to me,I kinda improvise a lot of them, kinda ad lib.

  • One of my favorites.

    Jim Cummings is one of my favorite voice actors besides Mel Blanc and Don Messick. My favorite work from him are Darkwing Duck, CatDog, Aladdin, and Goof Troop. He's one of those voice actors that you probably won't know if you see him on the street. But if you see his pics on the internet, people will know him. If I ever get to meet him I will probably ask him for his autograph. That's how coll I think he is. And not to mention the man can really sing. and I like that. Jim if you reading this, keep doing a fantastic job.moreless
  • One of my all-time favorite Cartoon voice actors!

    Jim Cummings does alot of good voices! First off, he does a very good mimic of Sterling Holloway's voice for Winnie the Pooh and then he also does a very good job mimicing Paul Winchell's Tigger voice. I think his voice really suits Darkwing Duck and Monty in 'Chip N' Dale Rescue Rangers' well too and his voice for Robotnik in 'Sonic the Hedgehog' (or as many Sonic fans call it, SatAM) is very good, it fits his personality since it sounds dark. I think his funniest voices are the one he does for Proffesor Norton Nimbul in 'Chip N' Dale Rescue Rangers' and the voice he does for Bonkers, it helps make the charactors hilarious. He also does a good evil voice for Fat Cat in 'Chip N' Dale Rescue Rangers' aswell. He does very well in mainly Disney shows and movies.moreless
