    You may hate him because he voices Spongebob.

    But I love him.

    He voices Starscream, easily one of the best incarnations of the character EVER, as well as Wasp/Waspinator, a new twist on a fan-favorite character from Beast Wars. For good measure, he also voices the twin Jetfire.

    I believe he is deserving of some more love on the boards for the work he does on our favorite characters.

    I'm not a big fan of Spongebob, but I really like the awesome job he does on voice acting. He really is a cool guy. B)

    Yay for voicing Starscream and Jetfire! ^^

    I'll second this motion. I'm not a SpongeBob fan myself, but I'm still a tremendous fan of Tom Kenny; hell, his ubiquity in Cartoon Network programming over the last decade means you have to love him if you consider yourself any kind of fan of animation at all. :)  That he's such an excellent Starscream comes as no surprise to me whatsoever - raspy comedy voices are such a trademark of his that I pretty much knew he'd be cast from the moment they announced the show - but he's impressed me with his Animated work as a whole, especially his sweet and likeable Professor Sumdac.

    Still, no matter how many great TF voices he does (and I do hope he'll return for future series), he'll always be the Narrator and the Mayor from The Powerpuff Girls to me... :D

    I may not like TF:A but I'm certainly a Tom Kenny fan!

    He's a fantastic voice actor and I've been a fan of his for years. Heck I really like the voice he does for TF:A Starscream (even though I dislike the show overall) and I'd love to see him back in another TF series.

    I've been a fan of Tom Kenny ever since I found out he was the voice of SpongeBob.


    But god dammit... I can't STAND the way he voices SpongeBob in the episodes made after the movie >_<

    I certainly don't hate him. I used to hate Spongebob but now the show amuses me. As far as his Screamer I still think it's just an angerier sounding Spongebob. Especially when he screams, but, not bad at all, by any means. His Wasp is good but I still miss Scott McNeil.
