Today is the birthday of Cliff Edwards (1895-1971), a singer and voice actor. His most famous voice role was Jiminy Cricket in Walt Disney's cartoon movie Pinocchio (1940). Edwards' rendition of "When You Wish Upon a Star" from that film is probably his most familiar recorded legacy and the best known version of the song. (And it's the song I sort of sing to my African Grey parrot every night at his bedtime.) Edwards also voiced the head crow in Disney's film Dumbo (1941) and sang "When I See an Elephant Fly."
