Like the other inhabitants of Squidville, Orville is turquoise, has yellow eyes with red pupils and has six tentacles. Because of this, he is nearly identical to Squidward Tentacles, except that he has a brown mustache, a navy blue police uniform, a red neck tie, and a police hat.
He is a guard at Tentacle Acres and SpongeBob called him from Boating School to get him out of the entry way. He told him someone was playing "progressive rock." He later appears in the Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy episode.
