Tom Kenny Best SpongeBob Squarepants Episodes: What if the mythical creatures aren’t just a myth? What if they all existed a long time ago and slowly blended with humans through the years?

You could see the grace of fairies in ballerinas as they glide across the floor. You could see the speed of centaurs in Usain Bolt as he sets multiple world records. 

And as for cyclops, you can see their ability to change their voices in…

…Tom Kenny.

Tom Kenny is an American actor and comedian from New York who’s done well in several movies and stand-up comedy. But Tom Kenny’s success lies in his ability to give life to our favorite cartoon characters.

It’s like he’s got a built-in voice changer machine!

Tom Kenny is best known for being the voice of the title character in Spongebob Squarepants. 

Aside from the excellent storyline, his iconic Spongebob Squarepants laugh left kids and adults alike hooked from Day 1.

In addition to that…

Tom Kenny’s voice acting skills brought about a one-of-a-kind voice for Iron Man in The Super Hero Squad, Leo Callisto from Miles from Tomorrowland, Commander Peepers from Wander Over Yonder, and played Uncle Howee in The Haunting Hour. 

What makes it even more impressive is that every voice he speaks is different from the last. It’s even different from his normal speaking voice! 

Pretty cool, right?

That’s not even the best part.

The best part is that is not even the end of Tom Kenny and his long list of characters he voiced. That is just the tip of the iceberg of his actual list. 


Scroll down to see how many more of your favorite characters have the voice of Tom Kenny!

#1.Spongebob Squarepants

Best SpongeBob Squarepants Episodes

Drop the anchor, matey because we have reached bikini bottom.

Among all of the voice acting Tom Kenny has done, his work as Spongebob Squarepants is his most outstanding achievement. 

Aside from the ongoing TV series…

Spongebob Squarepants got three successful movies – The Spongebob Squarepants Movie, The Spongebob Movie: Sponge out of Water, The Spongebob Movie: Sponge on the Run, and a Spongebob Squarepants tv special, The Krusty Krab Training Video. 

But did you know, he didn’t just voice Spongebob Squarepants?

Tom Kenny IS also the voice of several other characters in the animated series and movies, such as his pet snail Gary, his father Mr. Squarepants, Patchy the Pirate, and even the voice of the Narrator.

He could have easily voiced the entire show, and we wouldn’t even know it!

If you ever find yourself looking for a good laugh, you could always count on Spongebob Squarepants and its diverse content. 

And just between you and me, the episode Band Geeks really crack me up!

#2.The Ultimate Spiderman

Best SpongeBob Squarepants Episodes

Tom Kenny is not limited to goody-two-shoes roles like Spongebob Squarepants. He can also play a pretty convincing bad guy if he wanted to. 

He definitely gave us the hibbie jibbies when he played Doctor Octopus in the animated series The Ultimate Spiderman.

Nothing more terrifying than a mad scientist with a machine voice. Eek!

Those nail-biting fight scenes wouldn’t have been as good without the peeved voice of Doctor Octopus threatening to end Spiderman and his snarky comebacks.

Tom Kenny also played another bad guy but from another superhero universe Crazy Quilt from DC Super Hero Girls.

Best SpongeBob Squarepants Episodes

Guess what? Tom Kenny is the bad guy again. 

And not just any villain but the Magic God, the ruler of all things magical and a force to be reckoned with throughout the magic realm.

With Tom Kenny as one of his voice actors, the Magic God reeked of too much power that even Raven, the most powerful among the Teen Titans, doubted their chances of winning against the ruler of the magic realm.

Best SpongeBob Squarepants Episodes

I know what you’re thinking. 

What? Can Tom Kenny voice a female character? 

Well, judging from his track record, he probably can.

What an unlucky mayor he is to have a town that always gets in trouble, and they have to depend on three little girls whipped up in a lab to save them.

#9. WordGirl

Best SpongeBob Squarepants Episodes

Ever heard of a Superhero who fights crime with her alien superpowers and out-of-this-world vocabulary? Tom Kenny sure has. 

He even fought against one. Technically speaking, it was a character he voiced who fought one but potato-potato.

Tom Kenny was the voice of Dr. Two Brains, the primary antagonist of Word Girl. You know what they say, two brains are better than one but apparently not enough to outsmart one measly little alien girl with strong vocabulary skills.
