I see Mr. Lawrence in that image and all that comes to mind is prog rock musician Steven Wilson; him or Geddy Lee. Anyway, I always did dig his performances as Edward J. Platypus, Filburt Turtle, Plankton, and Larry the Lobster.

It's a shame he doesn't get more work these days.

@historylover He's been a full-time writer/storyboard artist/voice actor on SpongeBob for over 17 years. Dude hasn't stopped working.

@NCZ To be fair, I think historylover means more voice roles in other media.

Then again, Mighty Magiswords.

Ah, I guess so.

Well, since he's a writer/storyboard artist primarily and a VA second, I think it's understandable that he only occasionally does non-SpongeBob voices.

@NCZ He was good on Camp Lazlo.

I heard him say in an interview that his Plankton voice is basically a hybrid-impression of Gregory Peck and Thurl Ravenscroft!

This guy has amazing range.

Edward's my personal favourite of his roles so far.

Doug Lawrence does a good job voicing Plankton. His hamminess is impeccable!

He also voices Sumner from Gauntlet Legends/Dark Legacy.

He also played the artist in SpongeBob's "Frank-n-doodle".

@ScorpioKing1183 Yes, he did. Very memorable part! Although actually, now that I think of it, I'm not sure if he physically played him or just did his voice. The artist's lines definitely seem to have been dubbed over, and the voice is 100% him. Although even if it was simply a dubbing/ADR job, I'm not sure it would count as a voice acting credit.

Someone once asked this guy if he would use his Plankton voice at a drive-thru speaker. His response?

"No. But thanks for the idea."
