Encyclopedia > Jimmy MacDonald (sound effects artist)

John James "Jimmy" MacDonald (born May 19, 1906, Dundee, Scotland; died February 1, 1991, Glendale, California, USA) was the original head of the Disney sound effects department, and the voice of Mickey Mouse from 1946 to 1983. In addition to directing sounds for films as aurally complicated at Mickey's Trailer (1938), he developed many original inventions to achieve expressive sounds for characters like the train Casey Jr. from Dumbo (1941), Evinrude from The Rescuers (1977), and Buzz-buzz, the bee that gets the best of Donald Duck in his 1950s short films. He also added voice effects, like on-screen humming for Kirk Douglas in 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea (1954), as well as Dopey's gasps and hiccups in Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (1937), and chipmunk chatter from various Chip & Dale cartoons, starting with 1943's Private Pluto.
