Matt Thompson is an American television producer, writer, director and occasional voice actor, known for his work on TV series such as High Noon Toons, Sealab 2021, Frisky Dingo, and Archer.


Matt Thompson and his creative partner Adam Reed started out at Cartoon Network doing various odd jobs until they came up with their own show called High Noon Toons in the mid-1990s, which was a 3-hour programming block of cartoons hosted by cowboy hand puppets Haas and Lil' Jo (a Bonanza pun). While working on this show, Matt and Adam were usually drunk and the two eventually got reprimanded for lighting one of the prop sets on fire.[1]

He has been a voice actor, writer, director and producer for Sealab 2021 and Frisky Dingo, which he co-created with Adam Reed, as well as performing the same duties for Frisky Dingo's spin-off series, The Xtacles. Later, he worked with Adam Reed again as an executive producer for the FX Network series Archer. He has also voiced the character "Producer Man" in 12 oz. Mouse.
