Jim Cummings is an American voice actor and singer, who has appeared in almost 400 roles.

He is known for voicing Darkwing Duck, Dr. Robotnik from Sonic the Hedgehog, and Pete from Goof Troop, as well as being the current voice of both Winnie the Pooh and Tigger, as well as the Tasmanian Devil. He has performed in numerous animated Disney and DreamWorks movies including Aladdin, Lion King, Balto, Antz, The Road to El Dorado, Shrek, and The Princess and the Frog. He has also provided voice-over work for video games, such as Icewind Dale, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, Baldur's Gate, Mass Effect 2, Star Wars: The Old Republic, World of Warcraft: Mists of Pandaria, and Splatterhouse.

Some of Cummings' earliest vocal work was at Disney, where he replaced Hal Smith as the voice of Winnie-the-Pooh. He began voicing Tigger in 1990.

In 1991, he ventured to Warner Bros. Animation and began voicing Tasmanian Devil on the animated series Taz-Mania (he would voice the character on other Warner Brothers shows, such as Animaniacs, and reprise the voice in 2006 in Bah, Humduck! A Looney Tunes Christmas).

At Walt Disney Studios, he contributed to many of their televised animated shows: DuckTales, Chip 'n Dale Rescue Rangers, Darkwing Duck (as the lead character), TaleSpin (as Don Karnage and Louie), Goof Troop (as Pete, a role that would carry him into many other Disney shows), Bonkers, Aladdin, Gargoyles, Timon & Pumbaa, The Legend of Tarzan, and House of Mouse, as well as animated films such as Hercules, The Hunchback of Notre Dame, and Pocahontas.

He voiced Bering and Chilkoot in the 2006 direct-to-DVD film Brother Bear 2 and Razoul in the 1994 Aladdin direct-to-video sequel The Return of Jafar.

When actor Jeremy Irons, the voice of Scar in The Lion King, developed vocal problems during recording of the song "Be Prepared", Cummings was chosen to replace him for the rest of the song.

Cummings was the only original Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles voice actor to return for the 2007 film, having previously appeared in the animated series as Leatherhead and also Cartoon All-Stars to the Rescue and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Turtles in Time.

In 1995 he voiced the main villain Steele in Universal and Amblin Entertainment's Balto. He also had vocal roles in The Nuttiest Nutcracker, Shrek, and Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius.

Cummings has provided voices for video games, television commercials, and movie trailers, and was one of the official announcers for Kids' WB!, promo announcer for Xena: Warrior Princess and Hercules: The Legendary Journeys, as well as the official spokesperson for the current Cheez-It commercials and some current Weather Channel commercials (most notably the Wake Up With Al ones).

He has done the voice of Minsc of Baldur's Gate/Baldur's Gate 2: Shadows of Amn and Drizzt Do'Urden in the first Baldur's Gate: Dark Alliance game. He is prominently displayed in the credits of Kingdom Hearts as Pooh, Tigger, and Pete. Cummings provided the voices for Bad Mr. Frosty, Hougan, and Sumo Santa in Clay Fighter 63⅓.

Cummings also voiced Hondo Ohnaka in Star Wars: The Clone Wars and recently reprised the role for Star Wars: Rebels.
