->''My voice sounds like I dragged my vocal chords down a dirt road and then doused it in Jack Daniels and mentholated Cools.''
-->-- '''Cree Summer'''



Summer's voice-acting career began in 1983 when she was cast as the voice of niece Penny on the original cartoon version of ''WesternAnimation/InspectorGadget''. Her unique, throaty voice was instantly recognizable to casting agents (as well as viewers even today), who began frequently casting her in animated programs.

In all, Summer has voiced over 100 animated characters since 1983, many of them African-American girls (she herself is half-white, a quarter African American, and a quarter Native American. In fact, her name "Cree" is the name of one of the largest American and Canadian Indian groups in North America), though she has voiced her fair share of white girls, such as Elmyra Duff from ''WesternAnimation/TinyToonAdventures'' (and the infamously bad ''WesternAnimation/PinkyElmyraAndTheBrain'') and Penny from ''Inspector Gadget''[[note]]she also auditioned to voice Meg Griffin on ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'', but show creator Creator/SethMacFarlane thought it would be in poor taste to have a black woman voice a white girl, despite that Cree Summer has done it before and there hasn't been any outrage over it[[/note]]. These have spanned the realm of video games, cartoon television series, animated films and commercials.

Fun fact: her father is Music/{{jazz}} musician Don Francks, and her younger brother is [[Series/StargateAtlantis Rainbow Sun Francks]]. There was a time where she was credited as "Cree Summer Francks," but she dropped the last part, as she felt that name made her sound like a brand of hot dogs.
