Kyle McCulloch (born November 11, 1962) is a Canadian writer for the TV cartoon South Park, and is largely responsible for the show's Canadian culture themes.[1] He was a story editor and writer on SpongeBob SquarePants. He wrote one episode in season 4 and returned to work on the show in season 9, but left again to work on Lady Dynamite. He will also occasionally provide the voice for one-time use characters, such as one of the Mormon characters in "All About Mormons".[2] He will make his feature film debut writing the third SpongeBob movie along with Paul Tibbitt, who is set to return to direct the film.

Born in Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada, McCulloch is also the voice and creator of Mr. Wong in the online cartoon series at icebox.com.[3] The son of retired CBC Radio announcer Tom McCulloch, Kyle McCulloch grew up in Winnipeg and started his career acting in Guy Maddin films such as Archangel, Careful, and Tales from the Gimli Hospital.[4][5][6] In 1990 he performed in his own play at the Winnipeg Fringe Festival.[7]
