Aaron Springer (born September 5, 1973) is a cartoon director and storyboard artist. He is best known for his work on the Nickelodeon animated series SpongeBob SquarePants. Springer has collaborated with animation veterans like Genndy Tartakovsky, John Kricfalusi, and Stephen Hillenburg. He created numerous pilots for Cartoon Network and Adult Swim but they never made it to series. One of Aaron's trademarks is the inclusion of little "human moments" in his boards which are usually voiced by random fish characters.
