Warburton has put his booming, authoritative voice to use for several animated films and TV programs, including a lead character in Game Over, and Buzz Lightyear in Buzz Lightyear of Star Command. He plays Nick Sharp in 8 Simple Rules, and he voices Steve Barkin in the Disney Channel show Kim Possible. He joined the cast of Less Than Perfect in 2003, as anchorman Jeb Denton. He returned to the role of Kronk for Kronk’s New Groove (the sequel to the 2000 film, The Emperor’s New Groove) and the subsequent TV series The Emperor’s New School. His next major project was on the animated series The Venture Bros., under Cartoon Network’s Adult Swim programming block; in it he voices Brock Samson, the Venture family’s brutally effective bodyguard and former secret agent.
Warburton lent his voice talent to 2005’s computer-animated feature film Hoodwinked – a comical take on the Little Red Riding Hood folktale. He played “the Wolf”. He had a small role as the voice of the alien cop in 2005’s Chicken Little. He is the voice of “Mr. X” in The X’s, and the voice of “Ian the Buck” in the film Open Season.
Warburton is featured in the “preboarding” film shown to guests at Soarin’ Over California (located in Disney’s California Adventure Park). This same film is shown as Soarin, located in Epcot at the Walt Disney World Resort. Warburton delivers all of the instructions in his typical deadpan style. Warburton appeared on GSN’s Poker Royale Celebrities vs. the Pros tournament in 2005. He made it to the Grand Finale and won the $50,000 grand prize. Warburton’s enduring identification with his character in Seinfeld was evident on January 13, 2007, during an NFL football broadcast. An advertisement for his new series, Rules of Engagement was played, and when the telecast returned to the broadcast booth, one of the announcers exclaimed, “Puddy!”
Warburton has been married to Cathy Warburton since 1991; they have four children. In 2005, he supported Proposition 73, a California ballot initiative that would require doctors in California to notify a parent or legal guardian 48 hours before an abortion is performed on their minor daughter, contributing video and audio endorsements to the site.
