5:30

I was really surprised to hear these easy as hell spoken lows here.  It is said on the video that it is Tom Kenny and I can kinda hear it myself so I would go ahead and assume the video's correct.  Anyway, I am not that great at pitching speaking but it sounds to me like this is around F2.  I know spoken notes are somewhat taboo but this is a voice actor and I personally believe speaking and singing are really not so different.  I.E. if you can't sing an F2, you probably aren't going to be able to speak an F2 very clearly either.  Tom Kenny clearly isn't struggling at all here.

edit:

and woah, check out 10:05 he gets some seriously impressive low notes there.  Could someone pitch these for me?  These are definitely OP worthy I believe.  That is quite the range expanding for this guy!  I would never think someone with such a bright voice could get so resonant down there.

I know it's not singing, but it's still damn impressive to me. I couldn't believe he could sound so natural and resonant down that low.

Melodic G♯2s in "Wishing Well". Should we really be bothering to count F4s by him though? Wondering

Truth be told his A4 and G4s in the "To Love A Patty song" around the "I'm So Sorry" are some of my favorite sung notes ever. Dude's got pipes. Too bad he has to suffer as being the voice actor of a show that has degraded severely over the time. I wonder how he feels about it.

In "No Free Rides" there is a head voice scream that goes up to B♭5 and there are also several spoken G2s in the beginning of The Spongebob Squarepants Movie. He probably goes even lower on "Have You Seen This Snail" at one point or another.

I was looking for notes for Clancy Brown, but Kenny has some lows here, too, unless the song is known under a different title.

This is a REALLLLYYYY old post, but I just gotta make sure that this isn't true at all. I mean, we saw Mitch Grassi speaking out C2/B1 (if the guy who posted the video pitched it correctly), and that guy probably couldn't ever sing a C2 or B1, despite it being clear as day and sounding so easy. Speaking notes is easy bc there is no way to tell quality, because it's all monotone and usually devoid of any context.

Grassi has a pretty solid fry A1 that just hasn't made it to the thread yet.

"Can You Spare A Dime?" spans 3 octaves total!! One of his craziest performances.

I'd say there is some truth to it, but it would have been more poignant the other way around. "If you can't speak an F2, you probably can't sing it."  In my experience though, the pitches I can speak and sing are pretty much the same.  I don't consider crackle fry speaking though so I wouldn't qualify that (speaking in weak fry) as being representative of possessing the ability to sing low.  However, if I hear someone speaking on booming E2s with no struggle, for me it's pretty fair to assume that note is well within their singing range.

So yeah, unfortunately there is some truth in that statement.  Sorry if midlife crisis ensues. Cheers mate

I always felt Mr. Krabs was doing a Louis Armstrong parody in this song. Is that just me or is anyone else getting that?

In that episode where Spongebob goes around entering other character's dreams; in Squidward's dream, he turns into a clarinet and sings up to G5 I'm pretty sure

Either way, my roommate told me Dee Bradley Baker (or someone else) did Mr. Krabs' singing in this anyway.
