Jeremy is the deuteragonist of The Secret of NIMH. 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 clumsy black crow who is allergic to cats. He also appears to get scared rather easily as he seems to be fearful of Dragon and the Great Owl. Despite this however, he befriends the widow Mrs. Brisby and is shown to care for her slightly.
