Cliff Edwards, the voice of the Disney character Jiminy Cricket, had a familiar voice to those of us who grew up with The Micky Mouse Club television show. Jiminy would show up every once in a while singing about the “Ennnncyclopedia…” or explain, “I’m No Fool, No Siree, I’m Gonna Live To Be a Hundred and Three.” But my favorite was this song which was originally sung by Edwards in the Disney version of Pinocchio, a story which had a profound effect on me, but that’s for another time.
