Cri-Kee is a cricket from Disney's 1998 film Mulan and its sequel. Cri-Kee is the sidekick of Mushu and the luck charm for the Fa family. He is voiced by Frank Welker.



Cri-Kee is first shown being caged up. Mulan's grandmother walks across a road (while covering her eyes) to test Cri-Kee's luckiness. After being successful, he is "proven" lucky. He accidentally messes up Mulan's chance with the Matchmaker by climbing into the tea that the matchmaker was going to drink out of.  During the "Reflection" musical number, she releases him but he, out of sympathy for Mulan chooses to follow her instead of leaving. He tells Mushu that he has to find Mulan when the Great Stone Dragon (except its head) crumbles to pieces. It's said that in his first film, he's considered a lucky cricket. He helps Mushu defeat Shan Yu in by firing a Chinese missile towards him on top of the Emperor's palace (or some people call it the roof) and towards the end, he summons the ancestors by striking the gong once and playing a drum kit made out of pots and pans.

Essentially, Cri-Kee is an individual for Mushu to voice his thoughts out loud and acts like a spectator.

Mulan II

In the sequel, Cri-Kee tries to stop Mushu's antics from breaking up Mulan and Shang. He later accuses Mushu for destroying the horse-drawn carriage.

House of Mouse

Cri-Kee makes numerous cameo appearances in the animated series House of Mouse. Cri-Kee is usually found with Mushu.
