Will SpongeBob's Voice Actor Ever Leave The Show?


SpongeBob SquarePants has continued for much longer than originally intended, with movies, spinoffs like Kamp Koral/The Patrick Star Show, and more. Because Nickelodeon wants to keep the cash cow going, what does this mean for Tom Kenny, the voice actor at the center of it all?
Tom Kenny has been voicing SpongeBob ever since the beginning, at the request of Stephen Hillenburg. There may be some questions surrounding Tom's future role and if he'll ever retire, and now, he gave us an answer!

    Tom Kenny will always and always be the voice of spongebob forever and ever for many years and years to come so even though he's going to leave the show tom Kenny will always remember that spongebob squarepants will always be in his heart then maybe he'll watch it for someone else to sound like him i wish I could sound like spongebob but maybe someday I will be but spongebob squarepants and the spinoffs will be coming and then it'll be more and more spinoffs in the future and the design of spongebob for Season 13 to be very very different and more faces and spongebob dumb and gay

    You need really listen to the German voices of Spongebob and hes friends (if you want) I grown up with the 2000s voice actor but sadly patricks step outher the show of using hes voice without asking at a add and sqirdwards, planton dieds I can watch the new with the actor, but still 5 years ? Or something I hear differents and one time German Spongebob has even a different laugh (its the english spongebob laugh but it still 19years the same guy) which 1st time suprised me 8years ago

    If SpongeBob ever gets a new voice actor, I am not gonna watch it anymore. It's just not gonna be the same without Tom. Aside from being a very talented voice actor, he is also naturally funny so he is able to adlib as SpongeBob. Replacing him will be very hard.

    This is *exactly* how i feel about the voice copies for Transformers' Optimus Prime and Megatron, no one can replace Peter Cullen and Frank Welker Granted, i think Jon Bailey (Epic Voice Guy for many Honest Trailers) is kinda close, but no one can replace the original two Side Note: both Tom Kenny and Bill Fagerbake were in Transformers Animated, with Tom Kenny being quite literally the only version of Starscream to actually come close to achieving his goal of leading the Decepticons

    What if he dies in the not extremely distant future? He's almost 60, so his voice will begin to deteriorate as well. Though, he is the Mel Blanc of our generation, he'll be around for a long time.

    The way things are going now, a part of me is sincerely wondering if the Spongebob franchise will out-live the main VAs. Obviously nobody will ever be able to replace Tom Kenny (or any of the others for that manner) but I don't think even his death will stop it now. The Looney Tunes franchise is still going strong despite Mel Blanc being dead for 30 years at this point so it's not beyond the realm of possibility that Nickelodeon will simply hire sound-alikes as well. I mean seriously, the franchise has already out-lived it's creator so it's not impossible.

    It seems like Kenny is one of those people who genuinely loves his work and doesn't see his his job as just work. At the end of the day as long as he doesn't lose his passion, he will be Spongebob. I met Tom at a signing during a convention years back. He seems like a really nice guy, positive, upbeat, and a very animated person when he talks to you.
