"Jason Tam AS THE SQUIP 100%!!! [Be More Chill] He's like a real human supercomputer and he plays the part so well!!!" @socialleigh_awkward

"Wesley Taylor and Stephanie Hsu as Plankton and Karen hands down. They brought such amazing comedic villainy to Spongebob, you almost couldn't help rooting for them. Mwa-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha!" @marliejae
