Phil Snyder (born February 6, 1953) is an American actor, writer, producer, and director. He was born in Ellensburg, Washington, the sixth child in a family of ten children. He began to demonstrate his love for, and natural skills in entertainment, especially impressions, at an early age. Snyder moved to Los Angeles, California, in 1974 to pursue a career in show business. After many false starts, he became a regular paid performer at The Comedy Store. He also began pursuing a career in voice-overs for animated cartoons and commercials.

In 1996, Snyder had his first guest role in an animated TV series as Newt Gingrich and "Bob" in an episode of Steven Spielberg's Pinky and the Brain. The episode title was "The Pink Candidate".

In 1998, Snyder starred in his first feature film as Mr. Toad in the American version of Martin Gates's The Wind in the Willows. Snyder also played the villain, Thaddeus J. Pinchworm, in The Wacky Adventures of Ronald McDonald, which was animated by Klasky Csupo.

In May 2010, Snyder became the official voice of the classic Disney character, Jiminy Cricket. His first appearance as him was in the popular video game series, Kingdom Hearts.[1] He took over the role from Eddie Carroll, who died in April 2010.
