Fallon set up the bit as if Ice-T spent his younger days not only honing his skills on the mic in Crenshaw, but working the recording booths at TV studios around Hollywood. As such, one of his first gigs was in Peanuts, voicing a little known character who quips while Charlie Brown marvels at the night sky, “Yo, my man Charlie Brown is straight up baked.”
Though Peanuts didn’t ask Ice-T back, the performer continued to receive voiceover work. As Batman, he clapped back at a whining Robin on Super Friends and as Scrooge McDuck on DuckTales, he orchestrated anachronistic Netflix and chill sessions with Tinder dates.
More recently, Ice-T delivered a riveting, tension-filled performance as Squidward on SpongeBob SquarePants. In the clip, the titular sponge compliments his crotchety neighbor’s hat, to which Ice, as Squidward, snapped, “Yo back the fuck up, sponge-dick, square-dick.”
