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."

John, one assumes you have a voice to rival Placido Domingo's when you sing to your African Grey. Thumbsup

Believe it or not, Jiminy wasn't always a cricket. He once was a puppeteer and grifter, traveling through Fairy Tale Land with his parents,

Now there is some one who is completely and totally oblivious to his best before date. Although, sadly, he is a Canadian and attended the same university as I did, he needs to hang up his skates immediately.
