Cliff Edwards: The Voice of Disney's Jiminy Cricket by David Soren

If Cliff Edwards (Hannibal, Missouri, June 14, 1895 - Hollywood, July 17, 1971)  is remembered at all today it is for two reasons. First is his nickname during his career of Ukulele Ike and the second is his voice-over of the role of Jiminy Cricket in the Walt Disney cartoon Pinocchio of 1940 in which he introduced When You Wish Upon A Star, which was also used as one of Walt Disney's major themes for his television productions. But Edwards had a long and significant career besides this.
