letters to heroes

Dear Jim Cummings,

Your voice is my childhood.

Ever since I found out who voiced Winnie the Pooh and Tigger, I learned that you’ve given your voice to so many characters I recognize from my childhood.

Whether the part was major or minor, you always put everything you have into giving voice to your characters. You seem to have so much fun going to Comic Con and doing voices while reading scripts like Star Wars.

Jim Cummings reads Stars Wars as Darth Pooh & Darkwing Daine Jir (ConnectiCon 2013)

You do not just do voices, you embody the characters you play. You give Pooh his thoughtful, wise innocence and Tigger his bouncy sense of adventure.

I can never thank you enough for what you do. Your voice has brought me joy, has made me cry, and holds a very special place in my heart. I would love to meet you one day and thank you in person for all you do; hopefully one day this will become a reality.

You will forever be Pooh to me. You will forever be Tigger to me. No one can replace your voice in my mind. You’re the voice of Ed the laughing hyena, and so many of my favorite characters from the 90’s. You’re the voice of the Jarl in Skyrim. You’re one of the most talented voice actors I know, and you come across as such a humble person about it.

You’re an extremely kind and generous person. I’ve loved watching your participation in Comic Con videos from years past. They look like so much fun!

Thank you, thank you, thank you for all that you do as a voice actor. You’re truly an amazing person! Keep up the good work, and keep having fun doing voices.

Love,
Meghan B.

Hello there! I'm Meghan. Thanks for checking out my blog!

Although I'm almost 30, I haven't lost my sense of child-like wonder for the world around me. I've been making up stories my whole life: My imaginative play with toys as a child has grown up with me, maturing into my imaginative wordplay with fantasy and sci-fi novels, as well as free-verse poetry. I thrive on creating something with my hands and with my mind, using my pen or my keyboard.

When I'm not working, I'm reading, writing, or knitting, I'm sleeping. I also enjoy watching Netflix, occasionally playing open-world video games, or hanging out with my family, my two golden girl retrievers Bentley and Charlie, my friends, or my boyfriend Rory.

Happy blogging!
