Spongebob Squarepants is a money making machine. The little square sponge that lives in a pineapple in the cartoon town of Bikini Bottom is worth about 8 billion dollars. Suddenly you aren't thinking Spongebob is as stupid as you did a few seconds ago do you?

I like Spongebob. My kids and I have spent many hours enjoying his undersea adventures with Patrick Star, Sandy Cheeks, Mr. Krabs and the always loveable Squidward. My favorite episode of Spongebob is the one where Squidward forms a marching band, I think the episode is called "Band Geeks".

The voice work on Spongebob is first rate. The voice actors are really talented and the character voices are very unique. I especially like the voice of Spongebob who is voiced by Tom Kenny. Tom is also the voice of many other characters but Spongebob may be his biggest pay day to date. One of Spongebob's trademarks is his laugh. In this video Tom Kenny shows you and I how we to can laugh like Spongebob. It seems really simple once you see how it's done. I would have never guessed that was the method used to get the sound. Now that I know I am ready to learn some other cool cartoon voice tricks. If I could just make the Road Runner sound my life would be complete.
