Jeremy is the deuteragonist of The Secret of NIMH and a supporting character in The Secret of NIMH 2: Timmy to the Rescue. He was voiced by the late Dom DeLuise, who was one of two actors to reprise their roles in the sequel, The Secret of NIMH 2: Timmy to the Rescue.
Jeremy is a funny and clumsy black crow who is allergic to cats. He also appears to get scared rather easily as he seems to be faint-hearted of Dragon and the Great Owl. Despite this, however, he befriends the widow Mrs. Brisby and is shown to care for her slightly.
When he first appeared in Secret of NIMH, he had a slender appearance with a slender beak as well, he is also quite at a young age since he was looking for a love nest, showing this is his young adult years when he first met Mrs. Brisby.
In the sequel he had aged his voice and was a lot more built in this movie showing it was 12 years since The Rats left to Thorn Valley, he even was big enough to pose as the Great Owl to help Cecil with their ruse.
Role in film
Jeremy played the ally and comic relief for the film's heroine Mrs. Brisby.
He took Timothy to Thorn Valley, then as seen later on posed as the Great Owl, until caught and helped Timothy and Jenny to find NIMH.
- Despite being an ally of Mr. Ages, Jeremy, and Mr. Ages never interact with one another.
- He sometimes has teeth.
- A real-life myth says that crows tend to collect shiny objects, that's probably why Jeremy was hypnotised by Brisby's stone.
- Jeremy's voice actor Dom DeLuise also played Fagin in Oliver & Company, Tiger in An American Tail, Itchy Itchiford in All Dogs Go to Heaven, Christopher Columbus in The Magic Voyage and Stanley in A Troll in Central Park.
