** Is a big fan of ''Series/{{Svengoolie}}'', even shouting "[=SpongeBob=] loves you" at a Chicago Comic & Entertainment Expo. Upon recognizing who said that, Rich Koz managed to get him backstage to do an "On the Road" interview segment, so Kenny actually got to be on his show.

Thomas James "Tom" Kenny (born July 13, 1962) is an American voice actor and comedian perhaps best known for his work in the animated series ''[[WesternAnimation/SpongebobSquarepants SpongeBob SquarePants]]'', in which he is the voice of [=SpongeBob=] among others. Aside from voice acting, Kenny starred in the short-lived Fox sketch show, ''The Edge'' and was a cast member of the HBO sketch comedy program, ''Series/MrShow'', where he worked with Jill Talley, whom he subsequently married. He also hosted the show ''Funday Night at the Movies'' on TCM in 2007, which encouraged kids to watch "old movies".

Added DiffLines:

* NamesTheSame: No, he's not one of the executive producers in charge of Creator/FourKidsEntertainment.


Added DiffLines:

* PlayingAgainstType: As [[WesternAnimation/TeenTitans Fixit]], [[WesternAnimation/UltimateSpiderMan Doctor Octopus]], [[WesternAnimation/StarWarsTheCloneWars Nute Gunray]] and [[WesternAnimation/GreenLanternTheAnimatedSeries the Anti-Monitor]].
** As a loud, obnoxious children's show host with reality warping powers (and the voice of his rabbit sidekick, Loomis) on ''Series/TheHauntingHour'' episode, "Uncle Howee" in one of the few times Tom Kenny has done work on a live-action show that wasn't a sketch comedy show, like ''The Edge'' and ''Mr. Show'' or a behind-the-scenes documentary where viewers get to see the men and women behind the voices of their favorite cartoon characters [i.e., ''IKnowThatVoice''].
** [[PlayingWithATrope Played with]] a bit in ''WesternAnimation/AdventureTime''. At first the Ice King seems like another one of his humorous roles, but then came [[spoiler: TheReveal of Ice King's past which showed that he was once an ordinary guy by the name of Simon Petrikov, and he seems to be quite serious]].
** Woody Johnson on ''WesternAnimation/{{Brickleberry}}''. While it is true that Tom Kenny has played a FatBastard (Heffer Wolfe from ''WesternAnimation/RockosModernLife''), it was PlayedForLaughs and Heffer being a bastard is more due to social ignorance than being a sociopath. Not the case with Woody Johnson. On top of that, the voice Tom Kenny uses for Woody Johnson doesn't sound like any character he's played before.
** And then there's the [[spoiler: child rapist]] Mr. Jellybean on ''WesternAnimation/RickAndMorty''.
** One of his earliest (not to mention only live-action) roles was as the evil, murderous Binky in ''Film/ShakesTheClown''. Could also count as EarlyInstallmentWeirdness.
** He was also the Sharper Image Chair in ''WesternAnimation/EightCrazyNights''.
* PromotedFanboy: Idolized Creator/MelBlanc as a kid and was obsessed with cartoons and voice acting.


Added DiffLines:

* StarMakingRole: He was a complete unknown when cast for ''WesternAnimation/RockosModernLife''. ''WesternAnimation/SpongebobSquarepants'' pushed his fame further.
* RealLifeRelative: He and his real-life wife, Jill Talley, have worked together numerous times.
* RelationshipVoiceActor: Has worked alongside Music/GreyDeLisle, Creator/TaraStrong, Creator/CarlosAlazraqui, Creator/CharlieAdler, Creator/BillFagerbakke and many others.
* TalkingToHimself: In several series.
* WhatCouldHaveBeen
** Kenny was in the running to host ''[[Series/DoubleDare1986 Double Dare 2000]]'' but Jason Harris eventually got the job.
** In the early '90s, he was in the running to be on ''Series/SaturdayNightLive'', going as far as to audition to Lorine Michaels himself. However, there were only two spots available at the time, and they wound up going to Creator/DavidSpade and Rob Schneider.
