That’s right, the voice behind HUE on “Final Space” belongs to the one and only Tom Kenny. And even if you don’t recognize Kenny by name, you’ve almost certainly heard his voice before. That’s because Kenny has spent the better part of the past two decades-plus using it to give life to one of the most beloved cartoon characters in history, Bikini Bottom’s own SpongeBob SquarePants. To date, Kenny has voiced the star of Nickelodeon’s smash hit animated program in all 270-episodes, over three feature films, and in every series’ spin-off. And he’ll almost certainly continue to do so as long as the wacky adventures of SpongeBob continue.
As for where else you’ve seen and/or heard Tom Kenny, one of his first breaks in showbiz came on Bob Odenkirk’s and David Cross’ the late-90s cult hit sketch series “Mr. Show with Bob and David.” While he’s dabbled in live-action roles since, he’s had considerably more success as a voice actor, where you’ve heard him play the Mayor and Narrator on “The Powerpuff Girls,” Carl from “Johnny Bravo,” and various characters on dozens of other series including “Futurama,” “The Boondocks,” “Rick and Morty,” “Trollhunters: Tales of Arcadia,” the “Guardians of the Galaxy” animated series, and “Star Trek: Lower Decks.”
As for “Final Space,” it was sadly cancelled after its third season, so Tom Kenny’s days voicing HUE are likely at an end. Unless, of course, some savvy streamer or other steps in to revive the series.
