Kyle Carrozza (born May 19, 1979 in Catskill, New York) is an animator, voice actor, musician and storyboard artist who currently writes songs for The Funny Music Project (FuMP). He's mostly known for the pilot Moobeard the Cow Pirate for Nickelodeon's Random! Cartoons and the Cartoon Network animated series Mighty Magiswords. He has storyboarded for the Nicktoon Fanboy and Chum Chum and Fish Hooks for Disney, as well as doing character layouts for The Sponge Bob Movie Sponge Out Of Water. He draws the comic Frog Raccoon Strawberry for Dumm Comics.

He is also the co-host of the podcast Kyle & Luke Talk About Toons, the longest-running podcast focusing exclusively on Western Animation, and makes guest appearances on other podcasts such as Escape from Vault Disney! and Come On, Fhqwhpods.


  • Animesque: His later art style takes a great deal of inspiration from anime, while maintaining the looseness and cartooniness typical of Western cartoons.
  • Art Shift: Kyle started working out with traditional animation methods. When digital animation (e.g Adobe Flash) got introduced, he quickly got the hang of it. He still uses traditional methods for fan-art and original art while using digital methods for it some of the time.
  • Evolving Music: Since 2021, Kyle has re-recorded some of his oldest albums albeit with lyrics changed for censorship purposes and since some of the context would lack relevance and meaning since their initial recordings. One of his songs, Ukyō Kuonji (centered on the character of the same name from the anime, Ranma ½), had the majority of the lyrics changed due to it's sexual content, which would be considered offensive if played at this time.
    • As a result, Kyle has removed most of his early works from his Bandcamp and music streaming services. The only way to hear these songs (or even his early recordings of them from his demo albums in 1996) is through Youtube archives.
  • He Also Did: Did character design work for the cancelled Crash Bandicoot animated series with Amazon Studios and Activision; no surprise because he was working under Bill Kopp, whom Kyle's not only a fan of his shows growing up but also had him do voice-work on his own show.
  • Hot-Blooded Sideburns: Kyle's got these.
  • Polka Dork: Being also a musician, you can tell that his love for "Weird Al" Yankovic and They Might Be Giants influenced his weapon of choice for performing songs.
  • Take That!:
    • Before his jabs at John Kricfalusi in Frog Raccoon Strawberry, many commentators and his posts at both his old DeviantArt and the now-defunct Frederator Blogs show that Kyle didn't take Kricfalusi's use of his work lightly, but at this point, wishes to not be brunged up with the subject.
    • His 2004 online cartoon One Piece of Crap is one big jab at 4Kids Entertainment's dub of the aforementioned anime, which was released months after the series' premiere. The cartoon lampoons several obvious flaws the dub possessed such as the censorship and cultural changes, as well as jabbing other properties from same company, while including tidbits of information that occurred during 4Kids' release.
