Funny / Jim Cummings

  • When asked if a character he voiced, Hondo Ohnaka was good or evil, Jim answered "Yes. Definitely."
  • At the 2013 ConnectiCon, Jim did a reading of Darth Vader interrogating Princess Leia...in his Winnie the Pooh voice!
    • And his Darkwing Duck voice as well, for the Imperial officer arguing with Vader. That's right; you get to hear Darkwing Duck working as an argumentative underling to Winnie the Pooh!
    • She must have hidden the plans in the escape pod...oh bother!
    • And this video of him using his Tigger voice to play Michael Corleone.
    • He also re-enacted several scenes from Gone with the Wind as Ray at this ConnectiCon 2013 panel as well. It was just as funny as it sounds.
    • He's been a part of many panels where voice actors read from a movie script with their voices. This example where they read Back to the Future, has such highlights as Winnie the Pooh as Biff Tannen and Darkwing Duck as Doc Brown.
  • He's confessed that occasionally at a drive-through window, he will prank the server by going into character as Winnie the Pooh and ordering a jar of honey.
  • Jim saying "Let's get dangerous!" in several Disney character voices.
    • And when it came to to read it as Kaa, he just he wouldn't do it because the voice is basically "an evil Pooh".
  • At Zenkaikon 2014, he reminisced about his friendship with both Paul Winchell and his daughter April. He remembered Winchell saying to him "Hey, do me a favor and... take care of my little bunny (Tigger) for me", and he went, "OK... OK, Mr. Winchell! I will!" in full goofy fanboy mode.
  • He's told a story where one of his daughters brought in a talking Pooh toy and said that it was what her dad did. The teacher didn't believe her and Jim Cummings had to go to the Principal's office to prove that, yes, he was Pooh.
  • His story about being cast as Ray in The Princess and the Frog is filled with funny moments. (note, he's adopted two little black girls) It starts off with him wandering around the Disney building and seeing early concept art. He then goes "We are going to buy this movie when it comes out and I will kick myself everytime we play it" so he works on getting cast. He knows he has a good Cajun voice but "They will probably go for some celebrity like Harry Connick Jr who has a SOUTHERN accent and they are different!" He does make it to call backs and his agent lets him know that it's down to him and one other person. Who? "You know that guy you've been complaining about all this time..."
