Personal Quote:

It's a quality show and I think it came along at the right time, America wanted something stupid after the insanity of 9/11. The SpongeBob character is a naïve idiot but he also has a heart. He's a dumb, well-meaning person, like Forrest Gump or Jerry Lewis. See more »

Trivia:

Has admitted that his favorite character to voice is Plankton from Spongebob. See more »

Trademark:
