A Conversation with Rodger Bumpass

Fortunately, he has enough talent for all of you.

Best known as the voice of Squidward Tentacles, Rodger Bumpass is an accomplished voice actor and comedian.

We got to sit down with Rodger ahead of his appearance at our FAN EXPO shows to talk about how he's never played the clarinet, what Squidward would do in retirement and more.

He's a man of many talents - playing the clarinet is not one of them. 

INTERVIEW HIGHLIGHTS

GOING VIRAL

Rodger went viral on TikTok with 2.7 million views. Check out the iconic recreation of his SpongeBob song, Four Ply. 

RETIRED SQUIDWARD

Squidward as Krakatoa from SpongeBob Squarepants

If we ever get to see the SpongeBob gang in the future, Rodger believes Squidward would retire to the Shady Shoals Rest Home with Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy. Obviously, Squidward would be dressed as Captain Magma. 

SQUIDWARD IRL

The SpongeBob gang dressed as their characters in real life

The SpongeBob SquarePants cast got together once to play all their characters in live action - with no CGI! They simply played their characters as they are in real life. Crazy concept, right?

The best thing about doing [FAN EXPO shows] is meeting the fans. We don't have the audiences when we do our shows, but then we see how they really like it, and comments say "thank you for our childhood." We love you and we are here because of you. So please, come by and say hi! And buy something. 

You can meet Rodger at some of our upcoming shows. Tickets are on sale now!
