The Voice of Spongebob: Tom Kenny Died

October 30, 2010 - 14,362 views


Get to know the man behind the voices of Iron Man, MODOK, Captain America and kid’s favorite character SpongeBob SquarePants, Tom Kenny. Today, there were rumors that he had died. This is not the first time rumors that he had passed away had hit the internet. Some said his life had come to end and for some bizarre reasons.

You have to wonder what his wife and two kids think of him cheating the internet’s quest to kill him not once but twice! And why would someone start these rumors? There have been countless fake celebrity death reports but it’s curious that Tom Kenny aka SpongeBob has been a frequent victim. But thankfully SpongeBob fans everywhere can rest easy knowing that Tom Kenny is safe and sound.

Tom Kenny began his entertainment career as a stand-up comedian in Boston, though he later went to San Francisco where he continued to perform stand-up comedy. However, he still credited his comedy career to the legends in animation, such as Tex Avery, rather than other comedians in the field. Tom didn’t initially plan to provide voices for a living, though one night when he was performing his comedy routine, there were some executives from Nickelodeon and Hanna-Barbera in the audience, who approached him with an offer to work with them, which changed his life forever.

    My wife is great friends with Jennifer Goodman, an executive at Nickelodeon and she confirmed that this latest “rumor” (not the one above) is unfortunately TRUE regarding Tom Kenny. Here is a copy of a memo that she sent. “Nick execs, Hillenburg (the creator) and Paul Tibbitt (SB executive) are “taking time to mourn before looking into whether or not to find a replacement for Kenny. One source stated that “we were beginning to wind things down so chances are we will show the remaining episodes that are currently un-aired, in one or more Spongebob Specials. However, it is completely up in the air right now.”

    Sad stuff for us SP fans. I this hadn’t come from a reliable source I wouldn’t have believed it, especially considering stupid rumors seem to pop up every year. Wish this was one of them, a stupid rumor!

    And Luckily it is! Just showing how believable some of this crap can be! Keep on living Tom Kenny! (btw, I got those names off of Nick’s website – I don’t anyone)

    - He’s failed his boating test even with countless tries
    - his neighbor/ co worker hates him to the core.
    - he’s best friends with a jobless retard
    - He works at a fast food restraunt with no future
    - He works for a stingy krab who cheats him out fo his money and demands he do more
    - his snail seems smarter then him at times

    Spongebob (Tom Kenny), Isn’t Dead. It’s Mermaidman (Ernest Borgnine), That Died. Adventure Time, Is A New Show. I’m Sure You All Know. Smowzow~ If Tom Kenny Was Dead, Ice King, Wouldn’t Be In Adventure Time. Yes, He Is The Voice Of Ice King. He Was Also The Voice Of, The Mayor In Powerpuff Girls.. Rabbit, In Whinnie The Pooh.. Cupid, In The Fairly Odd Parents.. And Penguin, In The Batman. He Has Alot Of Ongoing Roles, There’s No Way He’s Dead. There SLOWLY Starting To Show New Episodes Of Spongebob.. Not That Many Though, So Spongebob May Be Ending.. I Really Hope Not Because I’ve Watched Spongebob Since I Was 2, 14 Now And I’ve Bought Every DVD Box Set, Blanket, Bed Sheets, Pillowcases, Pillows Themselfs, Pajamas, Everyday Clothes. I Love Spongebob. But It Does Look Like It’s Slowly Ending. There Definantly Wont Be Anymore Mermaidman And Barnicleboy Episodes, Because Like I Said Ernest, Or Mermaidman Did Die, He Was 95, Renal Failure, His Wife And Kids Were By His Side. But There Will Be New Episodes Before You Know It. Just Not Absolutely Sure How Many More. As Long As We Can String It Out I Guess. <3
