Warburton's acting roles often rely on his deep voice and large physique. In the mid to late 1990s, he was known for his role as David Puddy on "Seinfeld", the indifferent boyfriend of Elaine Benes. He also starred in FOX's short-lived, live-action series, "The Tick", in the title role. He appeared in the Australian film "The Dish" as a NASA official and on "NewsRadio" as Jimmy James's nemesis, Johnny Johnson. He had a role on the mid-1990s CBS sitcom "Dave's World," and had a memorable turn as Mary Jo's hunky but dumb love interest on "Designing Women," where he was brought back for the series' final episode. He also appeared as Officer Walter Kramitz in the 2002 movie "Big Trouble" and in the critically acclaimed art house film, "The Civilization of Maxwell Bright". He also plays the voice of Kronk in "The Emperor's New Groove". He had a small role, playing Agent T, in the 2002 movie "Men In Black II".

Warburton has put his booming, authoritative voice to use for several animated films and TV programs, including a lead character in "Game Over", and Buzz Lightyear in "Buzz Lightyear of Star Command". He plays Nick Sharp in "8 Simple Rules", and he voices Steve Barkin in the Disney Channel show "Kim Possible". He joined the cast of "Less Than Perfect" in 2003, as anchorman Jeb Denton. He returned to the role of Kronk for "Kronk's New Groove" (the sequel to the 2000 film, "The Emperor's New Groove") and the subsequent TV series "The Emperor's New School". His next major project was on the animated series "The Venture Bros.", under Cartoon Network's Adult Swim programming block; in it he voices Brock Samson, the Venture family's brutally effective bodyguard and former secret agent. Warburton also voices Joe Swanson on Fox's "Family Guy".

Warburton lent his voice talent to 2005's computer-animated feature film "Hoodwinked" - a comical take on the Little Red Riding Hood folktale. He played "the Wolf". He had a small role as the voice of the alien cop in 2005's "Chicken Little". He is the voice of "Mr. X" in "The X's", and the voice of "Ian the Buck" in the film "Open Season".

He is the voice of "Lewis" in the "Clark & Lewis Expedition" radio commercials for Horizon Air with Richard Kind as "Clark".

Warburton is featured in the "preboarding" film shown to guests at Soarin' Over California (located in Disney's California Adventure Park). This same film is shown as "Soarin", located in Epcot at the Walt Disney World Resort. Warburton delivers all of the instructions in his typical deadpan style. Warburton appeared on GSN's "Poker Royale Celebrities vs. the Pros" tournament in 2005. He made it to the Grand Finale and won the $100,000 grand prize. Warburton's enduring identification with his character in "Seinfeld" was evident on January 13, 2007, during an NFL football broadcast. An advertisement for his new series, "Rules of Engagement" was played, and when the telecast returned to the broadcast booth, one of the announcers exclaimed, "Puddy!"

Warburton played a cameo role as a car salesman in the video of the song "Online" by Brad Paisley.
