C. H. (Carl Harvey) Greenblatt (born June 17, 1972) is an American cartoon screenwriter, producer, and storyboard artist. He has worked on the Nickelodeon series SpongeBob SquarePants, and on the Cartoon Network series The Grim Adventures of Billy & Mandy and Evil Con Carne. He is best known as the creator of Chowder for Cartoon Network and Harvey Beaks for Nickelodeon.

Early life[edit]

He attended the University of Texas at Austin where he majored in advertising.


He got his first job in the animation industry working as an additional storyboard artist for SpongeBob SquarePants.

In November 2007, Greenblatt began Chowder, an animated show that he created and executive produced for Cartoon Network.[1] Greenblatt collaborated with Maxwell Atoms on his new Billy & Mandy spin-off Halloween special called Underfist, in which he reprised his role as Fred Fredburger. He announced on his blog that Nickelodeon has given the go-ahead for an 11-minute pilot for a new show created by him entitled Bad Seeds (later renamed Harvey Beaks).[2]

He announced in September 2013 that the show has since been picked up for 26 11-minute episodes, with production commencing at the beginning of 2014. He has also directed the Deadman shorts for DC Nation. From Season 2 and 3 of SpongeBob he teamed up with Aaron Springer and later in Season 3 he teamed up with Kaz.

On April 5, 2018, Greenblatt announced that he had now been employed by Warner Bros. Animation, adding that he has been developing "something fun" for the studio but could not yet disclose anything else about it.[3][4]


Greenblatt is considered to be one of the greatest comedy writers by critics and fans.[5] Scott Thill of Cartoon Brew praised Greenblatt as one of the most influential comedy writers with innovative comedic elements. Cartoon Brew also said Greenblatt "has logged a decade-and-a-half across studios and shows". James Poniewozik of Time credited Greenblatt as defining SpongeBob's comedic style. Greenblatt wrote SpongeBob episode "Band Geeks", considered by many to be the best episode of the entire series. SpongeBob writer Kaz recalled writing with Greenblatt fun and said he was full with "weird energy".
