James Jonah "Jim" Cummings is a veteran American voice actor and singer who has appeared in nearly four hundred roles. He is known for his ability to mimic Sterling Holloway's high timid voice, as well as for giving a certain gruff-sounding voice to several other characters.

He also voiced Hernán Cortés in the 2000 DreamWorks animated film, The Road to El Dorado and Butzo in the 2012 Triggerfish Animation Studios film, Zambezia.

Background

Born James Jonah Cummings in Youngstown, Ohio, he moved to New Orleans when he was young. It was there that he worked on Mardi Gras floats and as a door-to-door salesman. He then moved to California, where he worked odd jobs before he got into voice acting.

Cummings has voiced many characters in several Disney productions, most notably Darkwing Duck, Negaduck, Winnie the Pooh, Tigger, Pete, Ray, Bonkers D. Bobcat, Kaa, Ed, and various other characters listed below.
