Tom Kenny voices the lead role of SpongeBob SquarePants, an incredibly optimistic sponge who lives in a pineapple under the sea, in Nickelodeon’s iconic hit television show SpongeBob SquarePants, as well as in the SpongeBob feature film franchise, in Kamp Koral: SpongeBob’s Under Years, and The Patrick Show. Besides additionally voicing Gary the Snail and The French Narrator, Mr. Kenny also serves as voice director on all three series.

Familiar to Nick viewers as the voice of Heffer on the classic ’90s Nicktoon Rocko’s Modern Life and Dog of Catdog, Mr. Kenny received an Emmy Award for Outstanding Performer in an Animated Program in 2018 and again in 2020. Heard in commercials, video games, and movies, his hundreds of voiceover credits include major roles in Adventure Time, Futurama, Rick and Morty, Paradise PD, Winnie the Pooh, Powerpuff Girls, Final Space, Spyro the Dragon, and in the Transformers film series. Onscreen, Mr. Kenny was a regular cast member of HBO’s critically acclaimed sketch program Mr. Show with Bob and David, and starred alongside his wife, Jill Talley (known to SpongeBob fans as Karen the Computer), in The Smashing Pumpkins’ award-winning music video “Tonight, Tonight.”

Mr. Kenny and cowriter Andy Paley wrote the song “Best Day Ever” featured in the hit theatrical production SpongeBob SquarePants: the Broadway Musical. That show received the 2018 Outer Critics Circle Award for Outstanding New Score and received the 2018 Tony Award nomination for Best Original Score. Mr. Kenny’s elastic voice and energetic stage presence can be seen to full advantage in his high-octane, 12-piece rock-and-soul band, Tom Kenny & the Hi-Seas.
