Hello, dear readers!
As a kid of the 90’s, I have extreme nostalgia about the cartoons that aired on re-run during that time. One of my favorite shows that I miss is “The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh,” which featured the voice talents of one Jim Cummings.
This name might ring a bell. In fact, you probably know his work.
Jim Cummings does the voice of Winnie the Pooh, Darkwing Duck, and many, many others. He’s one of my favorite voice actors.
As an avid Winnie the Pooh fan (I used to call the main cast “the guys” when I was little), Jim Cummings has always been the voice of Pooh that I recognize. He’s made me smile, laugh, and cry over the years.
Here’s some proof of his awesome acting skills from YouTube.
Here’s another YouTube video with more of Jim Cummings’ roles:
And here’s a list of his filmography, which is impressive:
Cummings has been credited with doing 440 different characters. And he’s still going.
And if this isn’t enough, Cummings is a worthy role model. He calls sick children in the hospital and visits with them in character. Below is a tear-jerking true story. Have Kleenex at the ready.
There’s a Pinterest pin devoted to this wonderful fun fact: Did You Know #633.
That beautiful moment when you realize that Jim Cummings is your childhood.
Jim, I can never thank you enough for the joy that you gave me as a little girl. You continue to cheer me up, make me laugh, and fuel my imagination with the power of your amazing voice. You have an incredible gift. Thank you for all that you do as a voice actor.
