There is so much more to actor, comedian, voice actor, singer/songwriter Tom Kenny than just SpongeBob SquarePants, but man, that's a lot.
Since 1999 Tom has been the voice of Nickelodeon's cartoon sensation, which was recently named "the most loved TV series in America" by USA Today
Now, the show has spawned a holiday album, It’s A SpongeBob Christmas! Album, just released by Nickelodeon Records.
Tom sings and co-wrote ten of the album’s 12 songs with producer Andy Paley (Brian Wilson, The Beach Boys, Ramones, Madonna), with whom he also co-wrote and recorded the SpongeBob SquarePants: The Best Day Ever album in '06.
The release coincides with the new stop-motion animated TV special It's a SpongeBob Christmas! (inspired by the classic Rankin/Bass Christmas specials) that premiered on CBS on Nov 23 and will run on Nick Dec 6 at 8:00pEP.
Kenny and Paley wrote the premise for the holiday special inspired by their song “Don’t Be A Jerk, (It’s Christmas).”
Ridiculously prolific, Kenny has voiced major characters for, to name but a few, Brickleberry, Mad, Ultimate Spider-Man, Adventure Time, Winnie the Pooh, Futurama, Transformers; and is announcer for Kids' Choice Awards and MC for Lucha VaVoom.
