Toon In: Watch Jim Cummings Perform 17 Classic Disney Characters!

Welcome back friends to a new installment of Toon In! We are doing something a little different with this offering as we aren’t sharing a classic cartoon but this video spotlight on Jim Cumming, a legendary voice actor with 465 acting credits to his name. Many of them from the vast roster of characters from Walt Disney animated features and television series.

In this video from D23 you will see Jim provide voices from characters such as Winnie the Pooh to Zummi Gummi. So take about two minutes from your busy schedule and treat yourself as you watch a master at work.

Now I absolutely count myself a huge fan of Darkwing Duck but I first learned of Jim Cummings thanks to his work as the speedy Witterquick of the Spectral Knights in the still awesome 1987 animated series Visionaries: Knights of the Magical Light!

Until then I’ve gotta run..I’m late for work…thankfully I have Witterquick’s Power Staff!

Saturday Morning Preview – Back to Next Saturday (1985)

Last weeks post, Saturday Morning Pac Preview Party (1982), was so popular I thought I would keep the ball rolling on these Saturday Morning Preview, with the help of master video poster, dukeofcrydee. The Duke, as I like to call him, also posted the 1985 NBC Saturday Morning Preview show, which is aptly, but loosely (in name) based on the “Back to the Future” with some Wizard of Oz thrown in for good measure.

The special features Keshia Knight Pulliam (Rudy from The Cosby Show) who is read to sleep by Lisa Welchel (Blair from The Facts of Life). Keshia in her dreams meets all the stars of NBC’s Saturday Morning Shows and they need to help her escape her Dream Zone. It might actually be better than then Pac Preview Party, simply because it includes Welchel (dressed as Glinda the Good Witch) singing the now classic (and on my mp3 player) “Back to Next Saturday”.

Enjoy…
