Tom Kenny’s a dog. Well, not really, but he does play one on the hit YouTube series Talking Tom and Friends: The Animated Series. Kenny’s portrayal of TALKING HANK has been described as goofy, clumsy, and hilariously dopey. Hank is a dog that you can’t help but love, and who always seem to be getting into trouble. New episodes resume March 13th on the Talking Tom and Friends YouTube channel.
Created and produced out of Vienna by Outfit7, Talking Tom and Friends: The Animated Series also stars Golden Globe®-nominee Colin Hanks (“Life In Pieces,” “Fargo”) as Tom, Lisa Schwartz (“Party Girl”) as Angela, James Adomian (“Comedy Bang Bang!,” “Gravity Falls”) as Ben, and Maria Bamford (“Lady Dynamite,” “WordGirl”) as Ginger; with Tom Martin (“The Simpsons,” “WordGirl”) serving as head writer.
The series – chronicling the adventures, hijinks, and inventions of Talking Tom and the gang as they shoot their own reality television show – is based on the entertainment phenomenon that has garnered over three billion mobile downloads for its suite of apps, and three billion views on YouTube.
Voice-over animation legend and comedian, Tom Kenny says, like Hank, who is celebrating his birthday on February 29th, he tries “not sweat the small stuff,” and he has a knack of surrounding himself with good friends that are a wee bit smarter than him. Considering Kenny is one of the most successful animation voice over actors of all time, we beg to differ on his smarts. Currently, he’s recording: “SpongeBob SquarePants,” (on which he’s also the Voice Director), “Adventure Time,” “ Miles From Tomorrowland,” “Powerpuff Girls,” “Clarence,” “Uncle Grandpa,” “Peabody and Sherman,” “How To Train Your Dragon,” “Mixels,” “Ultimate Spider Man,” “Welcome To The Ronks,” “Stinky
and Dirty,” “Rick and Morty,” “Wander Over Yonder,” and of course, “Talking Tom and Friends.”
Wow, how in the world does he have time to do anything else? Hank, who doesn’t yet have his own app, can be seen in Outfit7’s latest app release Talking Tom Bubble Shooter. He’s always got a big smile, an even bigger heart and always sees the funny side of life. Sounds like Kenny and Hank are a perfect match.
“Happy birthday my friend,” says Tom Kenny. “Looking forward to another year being
