For as long as sound and talking pictures have been standard for motion pictures and entertainment, the Walt Disney Company has been calling on notable voice actors and actresses to lend their talents to countless works. And this number is forever growing, even to this day, with hundreds of well-known vocal leads proudly showcasing Disney character-laden resumes. There are those who have one primary claim to fame association in regards to a particular Disney character, and then there are others who take on several roles within Disney’s far-spanning voice range.

Renowned veteran voice talent Jim Cummings is one of the very best examples of the latter. For more than three decades he has been giving voice to hundreds of vastly diverse characters, many of whom are proud products of the Walt Disney Company. From characters who have been featured in recurring or starring roles to the more obscure bit parts, we’re taking an A to Z look at the versatile vocalizations that Jim Cummings has provided Disney with throughout the years.

As a remarkably seasoned voice actor, Jim Cummings has provided the voice for countless other non-Disney characters as well and boasts several other miscellaneous narrative credits to his name in addition to those of animated characters.

But it cannot be denied that some of his most notable roles are in fact those within the Walt Disney Company. His screen credit attributes may vary from great to small, but there is no denying that he is a Disney great — the life force behind some of Disney’s most iconic animated figures, both past and present, and definitely many others to come.
