John Goodman to Voice 'Santa' in Nickelodeon's SPONGEBOB CHRISTMAS
This holiday season, Nickelodeon will present it's first full-length stop-motion animated special, IT'S A SPONGEBOB CHRISTMAS! inspired by the classic Rankin/Bass (Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer, Santa Claus is Comin' to Town) specials, and the popular SpongeBob song released in 2009, "Don't Be a Jerk, It's Christmas," written by Tom Kenny (voice of SpongeBob) and Andy Paley.
In this new thirty-minute SpongeBob SquarePants special, Plankton vows to get his Christmas wish - the Krabby Patty formula - by turning everyone in Bikini Bottom bad by feeding them his special jerktonium-laced fruitcake. John Goodman guest stars as Santa Claus.
Goodman played the Ghost of Christmas Present in the 2008 Kodak Theatre production of A Christmas Carol, starring Christopher Lloyd as Ebenezer Scrooge. He appeared in the role of Pozzo in a Studio 54 revival of the play Waiting for Godot, opposite Bill Irwin and Nathan Lane. He is best known for his role as Dan Conner on the television series Roseanne (1988–1997) for which he won a Best Actor Golden Globe Award in 1993.
