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!

James Hance’s Wookie the Chew

I am a big fan of nostalgic art and love both Star Wars and Winnie the Pooh. So when I saw these, Wookie the Chew pieces at James Hance’s website I was hooked. I would have never considered putting together Star Wars and Winnie the Pooh, but when you see them put together, you get a real “of course!” moment. I really hope that Lucas and the brains behind Star Wars are in talks with Mr. Hance to turn this into something that is commercially available.
