I saw this wonderful little fact on twitter today:
@WhatTheFFacts Jim Cummings, the voice of “Winnie the Pooh,” calls children at the hospital to talk to them in character.
This makes my soul smile. Just imagine the joy a little child might have, speaking to Pooh on the phone. Oh the magical intrigue. Oh the moment of happiness in a bleak hospital bed.
*High five* Mr. Cummings for being such an amazing soul. I googled him and it turns out that this story is true. Cummings who is the voice of Not only Winnie the Pooh, but Tigger too, works with Famous Fone Friends or the Make a Wish Foundation and will phone children as their favourite cartoon characters.
How magical that things like this even happen.
Read more about Jim Cummings extensive carreer here, he’s pretty much added his voice to every beloved cartoon from the Simpsons to the Jungle book (King Louis AND Kaa the snake)
This story made my day. *random high five moment* I shall leave you with a sage quote from the Pooh himself:
“It is more fun to talk with someone who doesn’t use long, difficult words but rather short, easy words like “What about lunch?”” – Winnie the Pooh
“What day is it,?” asked Pooh. “It’s today,” squeaked Piglet. “My favorite day,” said Pooh.
