Some of the following links are busted. I will fix them soon so please bear with me in the meantime and bookmark this page to revisit soon. Thanks!
It’s true! That man of man vocal talents is also a fantastic singer! And while you have most likely heard these songs before, I’ll bet in many of them you never realized that it was Jim Cummings! So, hear (hee hee) for your enjoyment are selections from and full songs from different spots in Jim’s Career.
Disclaimer: Several of these files are in MP3 or WAV format for the sake of space so that I could fit them on my website. They are intended for you to listen to and then delete. Please purchase the actual CD’s to support Jim’s career!
As Singing Voice:
(from The Lion King)- Jeremy Irons did sing some of this song but Jim Cummings takes over after the phrase “You won’t get a sniff without me!” which is where this clip begins.
(from Anastasia)- Christopher Loyd may have played the voice of Rasputan, but check Jim out as the villain’s singing voice. His chilling best!
(from Pocahontas)- Russell Means may have been there to represent ethnic diversity, but when it came time to do some singing, Jim Cummings sang for both of his two characters. You can hear them both in this clip.
(from Pocahontas)- Here is Jim’s big solo from the Disney classic.
Singing As His Own Characters:
(from Bugs and Friends Sing the Beatles)- After Mel Blanc died, Jim Cummings took over most of the projects which involved the Tazmanian Devil (though oddly, not Space Jam). This CD Features Jim on many different tracks and is a very worth while and amusing addition to your collection.
The King (from Darkwing Duck)- Darkwing Rocks! Check out this great number from the days of the old school Disney Afternoon. Full song!
Little Girl Blue (from Darkwing Duck)- This is one of my all time favorite parts from the pilot episode when DW and Goslyn first meet. Really sweet!
Theme (from Bump in the Night)- This is Jim flexing his vocals in his Annie Nominated performance as Mr. Bumpy.
Rough Tough Burly Sailor Song (from Gummi Bears)- This song is from the very hard to find Disney Afternoon Soundtrack and features Jim singing as Zummi Gummi.
Friends For Life (from Tale Spin)- This selection is also from the elusive Disney Afternoon Soundtrack and is a duet between Baloo (Ed Gilbert) and Louie (our boy Jim).
Theme (from Bonkers)- OK, so Jim himself doesn’t sing this one, but since he played both main characters and he makes funny screaming in the background of this song, I just had to add it.
For those of you that still doubt Mr. Cummings’ amazing vocal range, we have included wavs of many of his most quotable quotes form his most memorable characters.
We tried to represent as many voices as possible but any wavs of that you find of characters that are not represented here would be greatly appreciated! Just send them to us. . .
