Country[edit]

Could you please add the primary country with which the actor is affiliated? Thanks. Courtland 03:37, 2005 Mar 24 (UTC)

Done and done. Mcsweet 04:03, 29 Apr 2005 (UTC)

Broadway[edit]

Since he doesn't appear in the Internet Broadway Data Base, and since his personal website's biography doesn't mention appearing on Broadway, and since he dubs a character named "Broadway", and since our article nonetheless claims he appeared in "several on-and-off Broadway stage shows", and since there are only about 4-5 years between his graduation from college and his initial appearances in California, leaving not too much time for him to have appeared on Broadway, I'd like to suggest there's a real possibility we're confused here, and that we could do with a good citation that would tell us which stage shows he has been in, if any. - Nunh-huh 02:34, 14 February 2006 (UTC)


Since you posted this statement (in 2006) and since you seem to want to know this information (and since I have been married to Bill Fagerbakke for 21 years), I can safely report that Bill has indeed appeared on Broadway in the 1980's in "The Musical Comedy Murders of 1940". This information will not be found on his personal website because he doesn't have a personal website. Bill is not one to update his bios-or even have a current headshot. But he doesn't seem to need to. He has worked steadily as an actor since graduating from SMU and moving to New York. He has never waited tables or tended bar. He has always been a working actor. Besides doing Spongebob and several other regular voice over roles, he has a recurring character on How I Met Your Mother. PS-4 to 5 years is plenty of time to work on the great white way! —Preceding unsigned comment added by 71.106.163.195 (talk) 08:20, 18 October 2010 (UTC)

Semi-protected edit request on 18 March 2017[edit]

Three of his occupations need to be removed "director, producer and writer". Because he's not famous for those works. According to IMDb itself, he doesn't do that much directing and producing or writing. His only notable occupation is acting and voice acting. 2600:1000:B01F:F947:1958:4596:9A09:4AAB (talk) 23:56, 18 March 2017 (UTC)

Not done IMDb is NOT a reliable source - Arjayay (talk) 09:40, 20 March 2017 (UTC)

Ummm... Hello! That's not what I ment. I meant that they need to be removed. I didn't say anything about sources for it. 2600:1000:B016:7087:9488:7F63:8015:B94E (talk) 23:01, 20 March 2017 (UTC)

Not done That's his point. That information is invalid due to the fact it's source is a user generated website (much like Wikipedia) and should not be the sole source of information. Please provide other references to support your claim. — IVORK Discuss 02:48, 22 March 2017 (UTC)
  • @Arjayay and IVORK: The IP is trying to explain that someone added "director, producer and writer" as occupations to the article with no corresponding source that these are actually primary occupations (as required by Template:Infobox person and MOS:BIO). You are asking them to provide sources that Fagerbakke is not a director producer and writer, which is pretty much an impossible task. I've remove the disputed matreial as unsourced until/unless someone provides reliable sources that these are indeed primary occupations.--Jezebel's Ponyobons mots 18:30, 22 March 2017 (UTC)

Thanks Ponyo, I appreciate it. I think you accidentally remove "voice actor" for his occupations by accident. 2600:1000:B02A:E69:78A1:B88E:8843:4399 (talk) 19:42, 22 March 2017 (UTC)
