SpongeBob SquarePants and all of Bikini Bottom are bringing the good times and excitement of their stage show to your home. The SpongeBob Musical: Live on Stage is coming to DVD November 3. To celebrate I sat down with Tom Kenny and Ethan Slater, and it was as funny and amazing as you're thinking.
Interview with Tom Kenny and Ethan Slater
Where are my 90s kids at? SpongeBob was always on at our house and I can still quote it today. So when the opportunity came to chat with the original voice of SpongeBob and who stars as him in the Broadway show I couldn't resist.
Yes, I spoke with Tom Kenny, the Tom Kenny, the iconic voice of SpongeBob Squarepants. Not to mention all the other awesome characters of our childhood. As if that wasn't cool enough, he was joined by Ethan Slater who stars as SpongeBob in the SpongeBob Musical.
These guys were not only cracking me up but they are both super sweet as well. I asked them about what it means to play SpongeBob and how it feels to see the impact this character has had across multiple generations. Plus, with SpongeBob doing so much now, what could possibly be next for our favorite sponge?
Watch to the end of the video for a special treat- they sing as SpongeBob!! 90s Ashley's dream coming true right here.
