From Wikipedia, the free encyclopediaClifton Avon Cliff Edwards (June 14, 1895 – July 17, 1971), nicknamed Ukulele Ike, was an American musician, singer, actor and voice actor, who enjoyed considerable popularity in the 1920s and early 1930s, specializing in jazzy renditions of pop standards and novelty tunes. He had a number-one hit with Singin in the Rain in 1929. He also did voices for animated cartoons later in his career, and is best known as the voice of Jiminy Cricket in Walt Disneys Pinocchio (1940) and Fun and Fancy Free (1947). His rendition of When You Wish Upon a Star in Pinocchio is probably his most familiar recorded legacy.
