Vincent Waller (born September 30, 1960) is an American writer, artist, animator, storyboard artist, and technical director. He has worked on several animated television shows and movies, the most notable ones being The Ren & Stimpy Show and SpongeBob SquarePants.

The Ren & Stimpy Show[edit]

Waller was writer and director for The Ren & Stimpy Show (during the Spümcø era). He directed the popular episodes Rubber Nipple Salesmen and Big Baby Scam.

Other shows[edit]

Waller produced and directed shorts for Fred Seibert's Oh Yeah! Cartoons. He co-created What is Funny?, as well as Pete Patrick: Private Investigator, another short for Oh Yeah! Cartoons, and also adapted the Harvey Kurtzman comic Hey Look!.

Storyboard artist and writer[edit]

Waller was a storyboard artist and writer on a wide range of shows:

Art director[edit]

Waller worked as an art director on Harvey Birdman: Attorney at Law.

SpongeBob SquarePants and other work[edit]

Waller worked as a storyboard artist and writer for SpongeBob Squarepants during the last half of the series' first season, leaving after the first season was completed. Waller returned to the series as technical director for the series' fourth season, and supervised the first season of Harvey Birdman, Attorney at Law. He worked on The Oblongs as a director, and later as re-take director. Towards the end of the fourth season, Waller was promoted to creative director of SpongeBob, replacing Derek Drymon. In 2015, Waller was promoted to supervising producer along with Marc Ceccarelli, succeeding Paul Tibbitt. The creative director position was then eliminated. Waller stated that the position was made unnecessary due to the series now having two showrunners.[1]

He was also a sheet timing director for the unaired Nickelodeon pilot The Modifyers.

Waller served as the creative supervisor for The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water.
