Jiminy Cricket is a small cricket who first appeared in Pinocchio as the deuteragonist.
He is clever, kind, caring and brave. He will do anything for a friend and acts as a conscience to those who need a guide. Jiminy has become a popular Disney mascot, along with Mickey Mouse and Tinker Bell.
In Epic Mickey
The Lifter Beetleworx, which was scrapped before finalization of the game was showcased to have one such variety that featured Jiminy's head as well, the head of the Lifter.
Jiminy Cricket has a important role in the game. Like the other famous characters, Jiminy Cricket has been sucked to Cartoon Wasteland by the evil witch, Mizrabel in the Castle to drain his Toon essence for her to return to the Toon World.
- Jiminy's role in the Power of Illusion is much like that of Gremlin Gus in the original Epic Mickey.
- Jiminy is the only character to immediately recognise Mickey (along with Scrooge McDuck, Donald and Goofy).
