Happy Birthday Tom Kenny!

You were and still are one of my all-time favourite VA's, ever since I was a kid, Spongebob Squarepants was one of my favourite cartoons growing up and still is (okay season 1 to 3 only but still). The fact that not only he was Spongebob but also Gary, Mr. Squarepants, The French Narrator and even Patchy The Pirate in live action, that's pretty awesome.

Of course he has had so many great roles in so many other greats shows including The Mayor of Townsville and the Narrator on The Powerpuff Girls, Starscream and his Clones, Issac Sumdac, Jetfire, Scrapper, Waspinator, Rattletrap and the Tutor Bot on Transformers Animated, Ice King and Gunther on Adventure Time, Zilius Zox and Anti-Monitor on Green Lantern The Animated Series, Mumbo Jumbo and Fixit on Teen Titans, The Penguin on The Batman, Plastic Man on Batman: The Brave and the Bold, Doctor Octopus, Wizard and Impossible Man in the Loebverse Marvel cartoons, Iron Man, Captain America and MODOK on Superhero Squad Show Nute Gunray and Greedo in Star Wars: The Clone Wars, Scoutmaster Lumpus and Slinkman on Camp Lazlo, Eduardo on Foster's Home For Imaginary Friends, Yancy Fry on Futurama, Dog and Cliff on CatDog, Valhallen on Dexter's Laboratory, Carl Chryniszzwics on Johnny Bravo, Heffer Wolfe on Rocko's Modern Life, Raimundo, Hannibal Roy Bean and Grand Master Dashi on Xiaolin Showdown, Nightstrike on Transformers: Robots in Disguise, Dr. Tyler Rockwell in TMNT, Benjamin Bright on IGPX and Spyro the Dragon.

I also like his takes on Rabbit, Bullwinkle, Boo Boo Bear and Funky Phantom.

I know it's been brought up here before but I really do feel people always underestimate his range and the kind of characters he can play just because he's Spongebob. His darker roles are very impressive and I hope he gets opportunities to voice more characters like that. Of course he's wonderful playing wacky characters too.

Happy Birthday Tom Kenny.

He was a huge part of my childhood years while watching "SpongeBob SquarePants" and "The Powerpuff Girls" on saturday mornings. His roles as Spongebob, Gary, The Mayor of Townsville, and the Narrator on all two series have been an delight to listen. :)

I also enjoy his other voice roles such as Dog (CatDog), Heffer Wolfe, (Rocko's Modern Life), Eduardo (Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends), Mumbo Jumbo (Teen Titans), Scout Master Lumpus and Slinkman (Camp Lazlo), Raimundo (Xiaolin Showdown), Knightbrace (KND), The Ice King (Adventure Time), and Commander Peepers (Wander over Yonder).

So Happy Birthday for 20+ years of voice over work, Mr. Kenny.

''Three cheers on your birthday, Tom "Spongebob" Kenny! Three cheers for you!''

He did an interview with Preston and Steve earlier today!! They discussed the upcoming movie, how David Hasselhoff looks the same after 11 years, and how Antonio Banderas is pretty much talking to no one while filming (obviously). They also taking about how big of an impact the show has left over the years, as well as the driving question, "We're they actually swearing while recording the episode, Sailor Mouth (which happens to be Tom Kenny's favorite episode, as well as Preston and Steve's)?!! While Tom didn't answer it outright, he did mention Stephen Hillenburg saying something along the lines of, "just say what you want, we'll edit it later". While I was disappointed they didn't mention any of his other roles while talking to him, they did mention his early on camera roles on Mr. Show and Shakes the Clown afterwards. Either way, this got me out of bed early!!!

Although I like Heffer as well.

Happy birthday, Tom.

He's got a great range, with roles like Spongebob, Spyro, Whirlwind, Ice King and Zilius Zox.

Happy Birthday to the iconic voice of Spongebob, as well as Ice King, Spyro, Raimundo, Mayor of Townsville, etc.

Happy birthday Tom. Keep on voicing SpongeBob now until it ends.
said at 7:26 PM on Tue May 6 2014
he was also the best for voicing Spyro the Dragon! ;)
said at 8:52 PM on Sun Apr 20 2014
While I like the Ice King the most out of all his roles, I think Dr. Octopus deserves a mention. I didn't he think he could pull it off, but he did! I love how creepy and sinister he makes him sound, I'm glad he's voicing him more often!
