The '''French Narrator''' is a man with a French accent who speaks at the beginning, and sometimes middle and/or end of most episodes. His only physical appearance is in ''[[No Free Rides]]'', where he is run over by SpongeBob. The French narrator is based on [[wikipedia:Jacques-Yves Cousteau|Jacques-Yves Cousteau]], the world-famous sealife expert who died in 1997. In the 2004 episode of ''Fresh Air With Terry Gross'', [[Tom Kenny]] admits that Cousteau was the inspiration for the French narrator, as ''[[SpongeBob SquarePants (series)|SpongeBob SquarePants]]'' creator [[Stephen Hillenburg]] considers Cousteau an idol. The voice of the French Narrator is done by [[Tom Kenny]], who also does the voices of [[SpongeBob SquarePants|SpongeBob]] and [[Gary the Snail|Gary]], among others. In ''[[Can You Spare a Dime?]]'', a time card with the text "So much later that the old narrator got tired of waiting and they had to hire a new one," being read by an unknown narrator with an English accent, is shown, jokingly claiming that the French Narrator quit. However, this was not permanent.
 
==Video Games==
 
The French Narrator is heard in a few SpongeBob video games:
 
*In Battle for Bikini Bottom, when you enter a new level, the French Narrator will start talking about the level while the camera flies around the area.
 
*In Revenge of The Flying Dutchman, he teaches [[SpongeBob]] various moves. He also has a different voice in this game.
 
*In [[Lights, Camera, Pants!]], he very briefly talks at the start of the waiter scene.
 
*In The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie Game, he narrates the cutscenes which show images from the movie.
 
*In [[Creature from the Krusty Krab]], he narrates the loading screens for Super-Sized Patty.
 
 
==Trivia==
 
*He appears in [[No Free Rides]].
 
**Since he is seen in this episode with a camera it may suggest that SpongeBob knows he is being filmed.
 
*In the Filipino dub, he is voiced by well-known anime dubber Jefferson Utanes who provided voices of famous anime characters such as Kouya Marino from ''Crush Gear Turbo and Yami Yugi'' from ''Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Monsters''.
 
*He was heard crying once in the episode Chum Caverns while Mr. Krabs and Plankton comfort each other while crying.
