Bob Barry’s Unearthed Interviews Podcast: Jim McDonald (Mickey Mouse)

For those of you who have said that this podcast is a lot of Mickey Mouse, we’re going to prove you right. Voice actor and sound effects expert Jim McDonald joined us one morning on Bob Barry Calls the World. Jim was the voice of Mickey Mouse, the circus train engine in “Dumbo,” the howling dogs in “Lady and the Tramp”, the mice and Bruno the dog in” Cinderella” and the bees in “Winnie the Pooh.” He also did the sound effects tick tock the crocodile from “Peter Pan” and the dragon in “Sleeping Beauty.” He did a lot more effects and voices which he’ll talk about and demonstrate. An interesting fact is that Walt Disney was getting hoarse from smoking, so he offered the job of doing the voice of Mickey to Jim.
