'''Squidward Tentacles''' is one of the main characters in the [[Nickelodeon]] show ''[[SpongeBob SquarePants]]''. He is the neighbor between [[SpongeBob SquarePants (character)|SpongeBob]] and [[Patrick Star|Patrick]]. Squidward is a cephalopod. His species is an octopus, according to the series creators, despite his name containing the word "squid" and him having six legs instead of eight. Squidward lives in a house shaped like an Easter Island head (Moai head). He works as the cashier at the [[Krusty Krab]], a job he absolutely loathes. SpongeBob works along with Squidward at the Krusty Krab. Squidward is a selfish individual and displays an unjustified air of superiority. He also has over 500 self-portraits and is delusional about his talents (such as playing the clarinet) though nobody around him considers him to be very good. The series' animators made Squidward with six tentacles, believing that giving him eight tentacles of an octopus would have made him look too burdened and would also be too difficult to animate.
 
   
==Biography==
+
He works as the cashier of the [[Krusty Krab]], a job he absolutely loathes. SpongeBob works with Squidward at the Krusty Krab, where SpongeBob works as the fry-cook. Squidward is a very selfish individual and displays an unjustified air of superiority.
In Squidward's childhood, he had to sit near the garbage cans at lunch, as revealed in the episode [[Boating Buddies]]. When he was an adult, he became part of the Krusty Krab along with [[Jim]] and later, after Jim had quit, with a fry cook [[Not SpongeBob|whose name is yet to be revealed]]. One day, Squidward was gardening, when suddenly, a pineapple fell on him and destroyed his garden. A sponge named [[SpongeBob SquarePants (character)|SpongeBob SquarePants]] then moved into the pineapple, and Squidward has been grumpy ever since.
 
   
Squidward's personality is grumpy, hot-tempered, selfish, Angus and of course, miserable. In spite of this, he is still one of the most intelligent characters, and out of the ten major characters, he can be categorized as the most educated one, along with [[Sandy Cheeks|Sandy]] and [[Gary]]. He has a sarcastic attitude and sees others as uncivilized morons, while failing to accept his own personal shortcomings. Squidward sees himself as misunderstood and unappreciated, blaming society for his failures.

[[File:Happy-Squidward.jpg|thumb|Squidward]]He is annoyingly pretentious in his pursuit of fame and is either unwilling or unable to spot talent and creativity, even belittling it. He lauds "cultivated taste" and accepted standards. In the episode [[Artist Unknown]], he insists that his pupil SpongeBob "show his method", even when it's painfully clear that SpongeBob has artistic genius. In the episode [[Bubblestand]], he belittles SpongeBob's brilliant bubble-blowing.

==Biography==
  +
In Squidward's childhood, he had to sit near the garbage cans at lunch, as he is not known as a friend by many people, as revealed in the episode "[[Boating Buddies]]." When he was an adult, he became part of the Krusty Krab along with [[Jim]] and later, after Jim had quit, with a fry cook [[Not SpongeBob|whose name is yet to be revealed]]. One day, Squidward was gardening when suddenly, a pineapple from a boat above fell on him and destroyed his garden. A sponge named [[SpongeBob SquarePants (character)|SpongeBob SquarePants]] then moved into the pineapple and Squidward has been grumpy ever since.
   
Squidward is also jealous of those who are more artistic than him, for example: [[Nat Peterson]], [[Patrick Star|Patrick]], [[Eugene H. Krabs|Mr. Krabs]], [[Squilliam Fancyson]] and even the puppet [[Big Nose]].

Squidward's personality is grumpy, hot-tempered, selfish, Angus, and of course, miserable. In spite of this, he is still one of the most intelligent characters, and out of the ten major characters, he can be categorized as the most educated one, along with [[Sandy]], [[Sheldon J. Plankton|Plankton]], and [[Gary]]. He has a sarcastic attitude and sees others as uncivilized morons, while failing to accept his own personal shortcomings. Squidward sees himself as misunderstood and unappreciated, blaming society for his failures.
   
Squidward is generally portrayed as an overall failure. His musical skills with the clarinet are generally portrayed as sub-par, from mediocre to excruciatingly horrible. However, there have been numerous exceptions: in [[Bubblestand]] he plays nice after practicing SpongeBob's 'technique', at the end of [[Christmas Who?]] He manages to play great with the one SpongeBob carved for him. In [[That's No Lady]] he manages to play a nice to woo Patricia. And in [[Best Day Ever]], he even has a concert where he plays beautifully and receives thunderous applause from the audience. SpongeBob was even on the VIP list for it.

[[File:Happy-Squidward.jpg|thumb|Squidward happy]] He is annoyingly pretentious in his pursuit of fame and is either unwilling or unable to spot talent and creativity, even belittling it. He lauds "cultivated taste" and accepted standards. In the episode "[[Artist Unknown]]," he insists that his pupil SpongeBob "show his method," even when it is painfully clear that SpongeBob has artistic genius. In the episode "[[Bubblestand]]," he belittles SpongeBob's brilliant bubble blowing.
   
His overall artistic style is shown to be abstract and overly sophisticated, and his works are commonly panned by his audiences. His critical failure is shown to be more due to his bad taste, rather than a genuine lack of talent. It is worth noting that the majority of his art centers on himself, apparently holding his very being to be an artistic wonder. In the episode [[One Krab's Trash]], Squidward is shown bringing flowers to a gravestone reading "Here Lies Squidward's Hopes and Dreams." Despite his lack of success, Squidward is tireless in his pursuit of artistic achievement. In [[Dunces and Dragons]], Squidly, Squidward's medieval ancestor, vowed that if he couldn't learn to play the clarinet right, his seventh great-grandson would be cursed tenfold. In "[[Squilliam Returns]]", [[Squilliam Fancyson]] mentions that Squidward was voted "Most Likely to Suck Eggs" in high school.
+
Squidward is also jealous of those who are more artistic than he is, for example: [[Nat Peterson]], [[Patrick]], [[Mr. Krabs]], [[Squilliam Fancyson]] and even the puppet [[Big Nose]].
   
Given how Squidward is depicted as a loser in most regards, it's likely that his 'narcissism' is actually a defense mechanism to make him feel as if he has some form of self-worth. Outwardly, he shows signs of modest success: he lives in a nice, well-tended house, with no signs of slothfulness, and finds plenty of time to lead an active, involved life.

It seems that he is actually capable of playing the clarinet very well by providing the full effort.
   
Squidward is well-educated and knows his history. He is actually intelligent and has a lot of worldly knowledge, especially compared to those of SpongeBob and Patrick. Squidward is also a skilled driver, as he manages to drive virtually everything, from a traditional bike, a boat/car, and even a tractor. Squidward is a good-natured and caring person; he just doesn't like to get too involved in things.

When at the Krusty Krab, he is a lazy, sloppy, employee (as shown in the [[Krusty Krab Training Video]]) who has an intense dislike of the Krusty Krab and its management. He is considered "inattentive, impatient", with "a glazed look in the eye." However, given the management's treatment of the employees his attitude towards the company is more realistic than SpongeBob's. In the episode "[[Squid on Strike]]", he organizes a worker's strike at the Krusty Krab. He even causes the destruction of the Krusty Krab, although indirectly and accidentally.

In the episode "[[Squidville]]", he moves to a town filled with his own peers, other octopi who share his tastes and outlook on life. Here, he is forced to face how boring and oppressive his desired lifestyle really is, and he is able to ultimately break free of its bonds with a bit of inspired silliness.

[[File:April 1st.jpg|thumb]]
Squidward Tentacles is a light turquoise octopus, and has purple suction cups at the end of his tentacles. He has six limbs in total, two being arms and four being legs, which tend to make the shape of a plus when he stands in place. Whenever he walks, his suction cups stick to the floor, meaning that he walks with a distinct squelching noise. Squidward has a large cranium with eight holes on the top of it to presumably show his baldness. However, in the episode ‘[[The Original Fry Cook]], it showed that he had long blond hair once. He also has a skinny body, big droopy nose, a wide mouth and yellow eyes with rectangle vertical dark red irises and rectangle red pupils. When he laughs, his nose appears to deflate and inflate repeatedly. He wears a brown short-sleeved shirt, which is sometimes shorter. In reality, Squidward is only eight inches and two ounces.

His species has also been a debate among fans. Though the writers say he is an octopus, his name implies that he may also be a squid. Squidward has confirmed that he is an octopus in [[The Play's the Thing]], and 'Plankton later calls him an octopus in'''' ‘‘[[Sweet and Sour Squid]].'''

In the episode "[[Just One Bite]]," it shows a close up of Squidward's face, revealing it disturbing and very morbid. This has scared some kids that watch the show. In the episode [[Frankendoodle]], he was wearing fancy clothing in one scene.

In the episode "[[Sandy's Rocket]]," Squidward is shown to be wearing an old version of his nightwear. It is pink with magenta-colored flowers on it. In newer episodes such as "[[Sentimental Sponge]]," Squidward is seen wearing his real nightgown. In this episode, he refers to it as a "night '''shirt'''." It is a light purple nightgown that comes with a matching hat. It is the third version of his nightwear. The second version would appear in episodes like "[[Funny Pants]]" and "[[Employee of the Month]]."

Squidward has a considerable antagonistic side, frequently taking advantage of the situation to keep SpongeBob from tormenting him, which only backfires and worsens.

*In "[[Fools in April]]", Squidward gets annoyed with SpongeBob pulling playful and harmless pranks on people at the Krusty Krab, and pulls a very cruel and harmful prank on SpongeBob in retaliation. Squidward then laughs at him when he comes out of the trash, which makes SpongeBob run out of the restaurant sobbing hysterically, and the Bikini Bottomites turn on him. Squidward tries to apologize, but he is physically unable to apologize until the very end of the episode, where SpongeBob has the last laugh: all his friends were standing behind him in his house and witnessed Squidward's apology. As a result, Squidward suffers a mental breakdown and runs off back to his house laughing maniacally after shouting that he had just fooled them as well.[[File:Squidward200.jpg|thumb]]

*In "[[Can You Spare a Dime?]]", Squidward accepts SpongeBob's offer to live in his house until he finds a new job. However, he takes advantage of SpongeBob's hospitality by lying in bed all day and essentially making SpongeBob his domestic slave, staying so long that the [[Narrator]] quits and not even attempting to find a job. This eventually proves too much for SpongeBob who for one of the few times in the series becomes angry with Squidward, who soon begins aggressively giving Squidward obvious hints to get a job, which Squidward either doesn't notice or chooses to ignore. Eventually, SpongeBob confronts Mr. Krabs in an attempt to force him to give Squidward his job back, and in the process accidentally reveals that Mr. Krab's first "dime" (a stone-age wheel) was in his pants the whole time, and that Squidward did not steal it.

*In "[[Squidward, the Unfriendly Ghost]]", when SpongeBob and Patrick believe they have killed Squidward and that he is now a ghost, he takes advantage of this by making them his slaves. Eventually, SpongeBob and Patrick, after reading a magazine about the [[Flying Dutchman]]'s death, get the idea that Squidward is being mean and angry because he was never put to rest. SpongeBob and Patrick attempt to bury Squidward, which ultimately brings him to confess that he is actually alive. However, SpongeBob and Patrick still think that Squidward is a ghost in denial and send him to the "great beyond" by trapping him in a bubble, which floats up into the sky where the pelicans are.

*In "[[New Fish in Town]]," He dragged [[SpongeBob]], [[Patrick]], and [[Howard]]'s homes down a trench.
*In [[Little Yellow Book]], Squidward reads SpongeBob's work diary in front of the customers, which made SpongeBob sad. He sees that he has been known as a "diary thief," but doesn't feel be until his house got repossessed. Later, he even reads SpongeBob's personal diary. This behavior even upsets Mr. Krabs who is considered the secondary antagonist of the series.

[[File:Squidward playing clarinet.gif|thumb|Squidward playing his clarinet]]
An avid patron of the arts, Squidward has a strong affection for interpretive dance, sculpting, painting, and playing the clarinet, but seems to have almost no talent for any of them whatsoever, although he does play the clarinet beautifully at the end of the "[[Christmas Who?]]", and at the end of the "[[Bubblestand]]" episode, also in "[[The Two Faces of Squidward]]". He has often tried to impress the public with his artistic exhibitions, but is always either unrecognized, mocked by his audience, or upstaged by SpongeBob. Squidward always wants to be the center of attention but rarely ever is. In "[[Best Day Ever]]" he had a concert where he played beautifully and received thunderous applause from the audience. SpongeBob was on the VIP list for it, which is ironic, considering Squidward's intense hatred for him. Squidward also misses many chances to become famous, even in his dreams.

All of his artwork, from sculptures to paintings, depicts himself in a way, even repainting existing works to include his own face. He surrounds himself with said art throughout his house, a clear indication of his narcissist tendencies. These arts have occasionally been admired greatly by Patrick and SpongeBob, but are universally hated by the rest of Bikini Bottom.

He has tried several things to reach the fame he desires: hosting a talent show, starting his own astrology spin-off, forming a band, and so on, yet he can't seem to get much of a following. Mr. Krabs and Patrick also seem to like him, though it may be argued that Mr. Krabs only likes Squidward because of his allegiance with the Krusty Krab. It is interesting to note that Squidward once stated that "anyone can be a big shot in a hick town like [[Bikini Bottom]]", yet he cannot make a name for himself.

Squidward works as the cashier at the [[Krusty Krab]] restaurant, along with his co-worker, [[SpongeBob SquarePants (character)|SpongeBob SquarePants]]. He not only hates his duties but the Krusty Krab itself, and he performs his job rather poorly and with a lack of enthusiasm. He also frequently behaves rudely to the customers. He has often expressed a desire to be fired or simply quit, but never makes good on it; he only seems to work there because he needs the money. In "[[Just One Bite]]", he reveals that he has never eaten a Krabby Patty and thinks them to be disgustingly unhealthy, although after having "just one bite", he falls in love with them. However, this fact is contradicted by an earlier episode in which SpongeBob forgets how to tie his shoe and, consequently, throws several Krabby Patties down Squidward's throat. (An explanation for this could be that since he didn't taste them with his tongue, he thought they were bad). In "[[The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie]]," Squidward is manager of the Krusty Krab 2 for six days, although due to Plankton's invasion of Bikini Bottom, the new restaurant is not in service during this time. Squidward's dream in "[[Sleepy Time]]" shows him playing clarinet for a king. In [[Selling Out]], Squidward worked as the waiter for Krabby O' Mondays. He was forced to maintain a false state of happiness, or else face "Human Resources", a thug in the back of the building.

Squidward has had many injuries and near death experiences. He is one of the most unfortunate characters, and is in some way hurt in almost every episode he is in (such as his head and/or nose exploding or deflating). He is shown to be an underdog, a person who almost never wins. This is frequently not caused by SpongeBob and mostly it's caused by Patrick. In some episodes his near death experience was caused by himself. (E.g. breaking his own "laugh box", freezing himself almost to death, suffocating himself with 3 pillows on his head etc.). He almost froze to death in [[Frozen Face-Off]]. He also almost always gets injured by his bad karma.

Squidward dislikes SpongeBob, and often tries to avoid him but not Patrick. The main reason Squidward's massive hatred for SpongeBob exists is due to the fact that SpongeBob can be extremely annoying towards Squidward, but SpongeBob is unaware of this, and thus continues to irritate him. However, on occasions, Squidward can display sympathy for SpongeBob, and this is especially seen in the episode [[Christmas Who?]]. Also, when Squidward is in a good mood, he is usually kind to SpongeBob.

Gary and Squidward are enemies. Gary annoys Squidward while Gary thinks Squidward is a jerk.
+
Gary and Squidward are enemies. Gary annoys Squidward while Gary thinks Squidward is a jerk. However, Squidward does seem to have feelings for Gary as seen in [[I Was a Teenage Gary]]. And they seem to sometimes share the same opinion about Spongebob's annoying antics as Squidward once replied "Oh, tell me about it!" in [[Giant Squidward]].
  +
In [[Are You Happy Now?]], Gary seemed to be concerned for Squidward like SpongeBob was.

Squidward would befriend with her sometimes but not that much. Sometimes they don't talk, but in [[SquidBob TentaclePants|one episode]], she transformed Squidward and SpongeBob after being stuck together. Sandy is the only character Squidward has no problems with.

Squidward and Sandy usually do not talk to each other, but in [[SquidBob TentaclePants|one episode]], she transformed Squidward and SpongeBob after being stuck together. Sandy is the only character Squidward seems to have no problems with, although Sandy does seem to sometimes to find Squidward intolerable, such as his recent assault on a Creepy Crawler with Karate for revenge instead of self-defense in "[[Squid Defense]]."

  +
===[[Squilvia]]===
  +
Squilvia is Squidward's girlfriend in "Love that Squid." In that episode, Squilvia visits the Krusty Krab and Squidward falls in love with her and gets nervous around her, so SpongeBob has to act as his wingsponge. SpongeBob tells Squilvia that Squidward likes her and manages to get Squidward a date with her. However, Squidward is unprepared to go on a date because he has not gone on one in years. Therefore, SpongeBob teaches Squidward how to act in a date by pretending to be his girlfriend and going on a simulated date. After Squidward cannot take it anymore, he yells at SpongeBob. However, he does not realize that Squilvia has arrived for their date. Squidward then thinks that she would not go out with him because he yelled at SpogneBob. However, she likes that he stood up for himself. They then go on their date.
  +
  +
It is unknown what happens to this relationship after this episode. It is possible that they went on one date and ended it or dated for a while with the same result. However, this is not confirmed. It is possible that they are still dating by the time of The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie. If they are still together, it is suggested that they are not living together at this point. This is given by two instances: 1. SpongeBob is easily able to get into his house and Squidward is able to kick SpongeBob out without confrontation with Squilvia. 2. He is able to speak loudly when he says, "Too bad SpongeBob's not here to enjoy SpongeBob not being here."

[[File:SquilliamFace.JPG|thumb|Squilliam Fancyson]]
Squidward's arch rival is [[Squilliam Fancyson]], whom he first met in high school band class, who, like all other octopi on the show, looks and acts similar to Squidward, but wears a robe and has a unibrow. Unlike Squidward, however, Squilliam is extremely successful in everything that Squidward has failed in, and is living Squidward's dream of being a wealthy celebrity artist with crowds of adoring fans. Usually with many admirers following his presence. In Squilliam’s debut episode, "[[Band Geeks]]", he calls Squidward at his home to once again rub his success in his face, saying that his band is signed to play at the Bubble Bowl but can't come, and sarcastically asking Squidward for his "band" to cover for them. Squidward, caught in the moment, claims that he does have a band and will play at the Bubble Bowl, forcing him to hastily put together a band from the residents of Bikini Bottom. Thanks to SpongeBob, their performance turns out to be much better than Squilliam could have ever expected, causing him to have a heart attack.

Squilliam returns in the aptly named episode "[[Squilliam Returns]]", in which Squidward meets Squilliam and a crowd of his fans. Squilliam tries to embarrass Squidward by showing the crowd his lowly position as a cashier, but Squidward claims to own a five-star restaurant, and Squilliam agrees to take the group to dinner there, expecting this claim to be exposed as a lie. Squidward's attempts at converting the Krusty Krab into a five-star restaurant are initially unsuccessful, until he gets SpongeBob to clear his mind of everything "except fine dining and breathing". SpongeBob is able to turn the Krusty Krab into an extremely extravagant and fancy diner. Everything goes well until Squilliam, who is admittedly impressed, asks his waiter (SpongeBob) his name. SpongeBob, having erased '''everything''' else from his mind, forgets his own name and subsequently everything else, going insane and destroying the "fancy restaurant" environment, with the help of Mr. Krabs' disgusting "appetizer" coming to life.

Squilliam appears again in "[[House Fancy]]" where Squilliam calls Squidward to boast about how his enormous house was chosen as fanciest house on the show House Fancy. Squidward then calls the show's host and claims his house is better. Then with the help of SpongeBob he attempts to make it look better but ultimately ends up destroying his house. This, the show’s host thinks is a revolutionary house design and for the second time Squidward is able to beat Squilliam.

==Residence==
 
==Residence==
Squidward lives in a house resembling an Easter Island moai that is alive in good neighbors, placed between [[SpongeBob SquarePants (character)|SpongeBob]] and [[Patrick Star|Patrick]]'s houses at [[122 Conch Street]], an address that was revealed in [[Slide Whistle Stooges]]. It has been personified several times, such as in the episode "[[The Secret Box]]", where it seems to be peeking at SpongeBob and Patrick's talk. Despite Squidward's wish for peace and quiet, his two neighbors, SpongeBob and Patrick, make it nearly impossible, due to their high level of childish immaturity and silliness. If Squidward had the choice, he would move. He did so in "[[Squidville]]", but ultimately decided that he had moved somewhere even worse. In "[[Opposite Day]]", Squidward tried to move, but SpongeBob and Patrick caused the real estate agent who was originally trying to sell Squidward's house to angrily leave, so Squidward had to stay. He also moved in "[[Stanley S. SquarePants]]", because he had realized that there were "two of them" and he became horrified. Squidward does not live alone; Snellie, his snail from "[[The Great Snail Race]]", is in residence with him. In "[[Can You Spare a Dime?]]", after quitting his job from the Krusty Krab, Squidward was homeless until SpongeBob found him living in a cardboard box and then he ends up living in SpongeBob's house. Squidward almost became homeless again in "[[Giant Squidward]]", when he turned into a giant.

In the episode "[[Squidville]]," after Squidward's house is destroyed by SpongeBob and Patrick, he sees an advertisement on TV about a town called "[[Tentacle Acres]]," home of many octopi who are virtually identical to Squidward, even living in Easter Island Heads. He decides to move there, and for a while, life is spectacular, as he finds a large community of like-minded octopi into which he fits perfectly. Eventually, though, he starts to tire of the boring daily routine in which he does the same things every day in order. He begins to wreak havoc throughout the overly structured civilization of Tentacle Acres with a reef blower and an angry mob is formed against him, who corners him in an alley and forces him to escape by launching himself into the sky with his reef blower, maniacally yelling "Freedom!"

*In "[[Good Ol' Whatshisname]]", after stealing [[What Zit Tooya]]'s wallet, Squidward is sentenced to ten years in jail, an unrealistically long time.

*In the episode [[Sweet and Sour Squid]], Plankton reveals that Squidward has worked at the Krusty Krab for 20 years. This means he is at least around mid 30s or early 40s, since it would be logical that he began work as a teenager or young adult.

*Squidward used to have a garden where [[Spongebob|SpongeBob]]'s house is, as shown in [[Truth or Square]]

*Although Squidward himself didn't appear in [[Jailbreak!]], one of [[Plankton's Cellmates]] used chum to make his face look like Squidward's in order to scare off a cashier.
 
*The "ward" at the end of his first name could suggest his name is a pun on the word "Squid" and the name "Edward".

List of characters

Squidward[1] Q.[2] Tentacles[3] is the tritagonist of the series. He is the neighbor between SpongeBob and Patrick. Squidward is a cephalopod. His species is an octopus, according to the series creators, despite his name containing the word "squid" and him having six legs instead of eight legs. Squidward lives in a house shaped like an Easter Island head (Moai head).

He works as the cashier of the Krusty Krab, a job he absolutely loathes. SpongeBob works with Squidward at the Krusty Krab, where SpongeBob works as the fry-cook. Squidward is a very selfish individual and displays an unjustified air of superiority.

He also has over 500 self-portraits and is delusional about his talents (such as playing the clarinet) though nobody around him considers him to be very good. The series' animators made Squidward with six tentacles, believing that giving him eight tentacles of an octopus would have made him look too burdened and would be too difficult to animate.

BiographyEdit

In Squidward's childhood, he had to sit near the garbage cans at lunch, as he is not known as a friend by many people, as revealed in the episode "Boating Buddies." When he was an adult, he became part of the Krusty Krab along with Jim and later, after Jim had quit, with a fry cook whose name is yet to be revealed. One day, Squidward was gardening when suddenly, a pineapple from a boat above fell on him and destroyed his garden. A sponge named SpongeBob SquarePants then moved into the pineapple and Squidward has been grumpy ever since.

Squidward's personality is grumpy, hot-tempered, selfish, Angus, and of course, miserable. In spite of this, he is still one of the most intelligent characters, and out of the ten major characters, he can be categorized as the most educated one, along with Sandy, Plankton, and Gary. He has a sarcastic attitude and sees others as uncivilized morons, while failing to accept his own personal shortcomings. Squidward sees himself as misunderstood and unappreciated, blaming society for his failures.

Happy-Squidward

Squidward happy

He is annoyingly pretentious in his pursuit of fame and is either unwilling or unable to spot talent and creativity, even belittling it. He lauds "cultivated taste" and accepted standards. In the episode "Artist Unknown," he insists that his pupil SpongeBob "show his method," even when it is painfully clear that SpongeBob has artistic genius. In the episode "Bubblestand," he belittles SpongeBob's brilliant bubble blowing.

Squidward is also jealous of those who are more artistic than he is, for example: Nat Peterson, Patrick, Mr. Krabs, Squilliam Fancyson and even the puppet Big Nose.

Squidward is generally portrayed as an overall failure. His musical skills with the clarinet are generally portrayed as sub-par, from mediocre to excruciatingly horrible. However, there have been numerous exceptions: in "Bubblestand," he plays nice after practicing SpongeBob's 'technique', at the end of "Christmas Who?," he manages to play great with the one SpongeBob carved for him. In "That's No Lady," he manages to play a nice to woo Patricia. In addition, in "Best Day Ever," he even has a concert where he plays beautifully and receives thunderous applause from the audience. SpongeBob was even on the VIP list for it. It seems that he is actually capable of playing the clarinet very well by providing the full effort.

His overall artistic style is shown to be abstract and overly sophisticated, and his works are commonly panned by his audiences. His critical failure is shown to be more due to his bad taste, rather than a genuine lack of talent. It is worth noting that the majority of his art centers on himself, apparently holding his very being to be an artistic wonder. In the episode "One Krab's Trash," Squidward is shown bringing flowers to a gravestone reading "Here Lies Squidward's Hopes and Dreams." Despite his lack of success, Squidward is tireless in his pursuit of artistic achievement. In "Dunces and Dragons," Squidly, Squidward's medieval ancestor, vowed that if he could not learn to play the clarinet right, his seventh great-grandson would be cursed tenfold. In "Squilliam Returns," Squilliam Fancyson mentions that Squidward was voted "Most Likely to Suck Eggs" in high school.

Given how Squidward is depicted as a loser in most regards, it is likely that his 'narcissism' is actually a defense mechanism to make him feel as if he has some form of self-worth. Outwardly, he shows signs of modest success: he lives in a nice, well-tended house, with no signs of slothfulness, and finds plenty of time to lead an active, involved life.

Squidward is well educated and knows his history. He is actually intelligent and has a lot of worldly knowledge, especially compared to those of SpongeBob and Patrick. Squidward is also a skilled driver, as he manages to drive virtually everything, from a traditional bike, a boat, car, and even a tractor. Squidward is a good-natured and caring person; he just does not like to get too involved in things.

When he is at the Krusty Krab, he is a lazy, sloppy, employee (as shown in the "Krusty Krab Training Video") who has an intense dislike of the Krusty Krab and its management. He is considered "inattentive, impatient", with "a glazed look in the eye." However, given the management's treatment of the employees, his attitude towards the company is more realistic than SpongeBob's. In the episode "Squid on Strike," he organizes a worker's strike at the Krusty Krab. He even causes the destruction of the Krusty Krab, although indirectly and accidentally.

In the episode "Squidville," he moves to a town filled with his own peers, other octopi who share his tastes and outlook on life. Here, he is forced to face how boring and oppressive his desired lifestyle really is, and he is able to ultimately break free of its bonds with a bit of inspired silliness.

Even though Squidward has tentacles, he is shown or implied to have fingers, toes and even nails in episodes such as "Once Bitten," "House Fancy," and "Giant Squidward."

In "Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy V," it is implied that Squidward at one point had a girlfriend when he remembered the good times he had at Make-out Reef.

In "Love That Squid," it revealed he has not dated for a long time before Squilvia came into his life.

AppearanceEdit

April 1st
Future!

Squidward Tentacles is a light turquoise octopus, and has purple suction cups at the end of his tentacles. He has six limbs in total, two being arms and four being legs, which tend to make the shape of a plus sign when he stands in place. Whenever he walks, his suction cups stick to the floor, meaning that he walks with a distinct squelching noise. Squidward has a large cranium with eight holes on the top of it, presumably show his baldness. However, in the episode "The Original Fry Cook," it showed that he had long blond hair once. He also has a skinny body, big droopy nose, a wide mouth and yellow eyes with rectangle vertical dark red irises and rectangle red pupils. When he laughs, his nose appears to deflate and inflate repeatedly. He wears a brown short-sleeved shirt, which is sometimes shorter. In reality, Squidward is only eight inches and two ounces.

EatingCoral

His color is inconsistent throughout the series. While he is shown to be lighter green in earlier episodes, in later episodes he is shown having a lighter and more blue color.

Close up of face

In the episode "Just One Bite," it shows a close up of Squidward's face, revealing it disturbing and very morbid. This has scared some kids that watch the show. In the episode Frankendoodle, he was wearing fancy clothing in one scene.

Squidward's third version of his nightwear.

In the episode "Sandy's Rocket," Squidward is shown to be wearing an old version of his nightwear. It is pink with magenta-colored flowers on it. In newer episodes such as "Sentimental Sponge," Squidward is seen wearing his real nightgown. In this episode, he refers to it as a "night shirt." It is a light purple nightgown that comes with a matching hat. It is the third version of his nightwear. The second version would appear in episodes like "Funny Pants" and "Employee of the Month."

PersonalityEdit

Rivalry SideEdit

EEEEEEEE

Angry squid

Squidward has a considerable antagonistic side, frequently taking advantage of the situation to keep SpongeBob from tormenting him, which only backfires and worsens.

  • In "Fools in April," Squidward gets annoyed with SpongeBob pulling playful and harmless pranks on people at the Krusty Krab, and pulls a very cruel and harmful prank on SpongeBob in retaliation. Squidward then laughs at him when he comes out of the trash, which makes SpongeBob run out of the restaurant sobbing hysterically, and the Bikini Bottomites turn on him. Squidward tries to apologize, but he is physically unable to apologize until the very end of the episode, where SpongeBob has the last laugh: all his friends were standing behind him in his house and witnessed Squidward's apology. As a result, Squidward suffers a mental breakdown and runs off back to his house laughing maniacally after shouting that he had just fooled them as well.
  • In "Can You Spare a Dime?," Squidward accepts SpongeBob's offer to live in his house until he finds a new job. However, he takes advantage of SpongeBob's hospitality by lying in bed all day and essentially making SpongeBob his domestic slave, staying so long that the French Narrator quits and not even attempting to find a job. This eventually proves too much for SpongeBob who for one of the few times in the series becomes angry with Squidward, who soon begins aggressively giving Squidward obvious hints to get a job, which Squidward either doesn't notice or chooses to ignore. Eventually, SpongeBob confronts Mr. Krabs in an attempt to force him to give Squidward his job back, and in the process accidentally reveals that Mr. Krab's first "dime" (a stone-age wheel) was in his pants the whole time, and that Squidward did not steal it.
0banana

Squidward forces SpongeBob to spoil him.

  • In "Squidward, the Unfriendly Ghost," when SpongeBob and Patrick believe they have killed Squidward and that he is now a ghost, he takes advantage of this by making them his slaves. Eventually, SpongeBob and Patrick, after reading a magazine about the Flying Dutchman's death, get the idea that Squidward is being mean and angry because he was never put to rest. SpongeBob and Patrick attempt to bury Squidward, which ultimately brings him to confess that he is actually alive. However, SpongeBob and Patrick still think that Squidward is a ghost in denial and send him to the "great beyond" by trapping him in a bubble, which floats up into the sky where the pelicans are.
Kiss on Forehead

Squidward makes fun of SpongeBob.

  • In the episode "Grandma's Kisses," Squidward and the customers at the Krusty Krab ruthlessly tease SpongeBob for having a kiss on his forehead given by his grandma. At the end of the episode, it is shown that they have been spying on SpongeBob with his grandma through her house's window.
  • In "Employee of the Month," SpongeBob and Squidward viciously compete with each other for the employee of the month award, both of them trapping each other in hopes of getting to work first.
  • In "Funny Pants," SpongeBob's laughing annoyed him, so he told SpongeBob that he had a "laugh box" that would burn up if he laughed within 24 hours and could never laugh again. SpongeBob eventually thinks he lost his laugh and goes into "spiraling depression." which proves to be too much for Squidward to handle.
  • In "The Splinter," Squidward tells SpongeBob that Mr. Krabs will have to kick him out for getting a splinter at work.
  • In "Sponge-Cano!," He scolds everyone in the Krusty Krab and yells at SpongeBob for humming.
  • In "Professor Squidward" Squidward says he is Squilliam, but the principal finds a real Squilliam and then Squidward was arrested and sent to jail.
  • In "I ♥ Dancing," Squidward gets jealous that SpongeBob has an audition in a musical, and "teaches" him how to dance in order to steal the spot for himself, training SpongeBob to the point of exhaustion. While he wins, he is to star in Squilliam's musical, and is forced to train to perform a dance that SpongeBob had performed earlier, with Squilliam clearly planning to run him ragged just as Squidward had done to SpongeBob.
Squidward Grabbing The Wallet

Squidward steals a wallet.

  • In "Good Ol' Whatshisname," Squidward steals What Zit Tooya's wallet, ran a red light in front of a police officer, is arrested, and was sentenced to ten years in prison.
  • In "The Lost Mattress," while retrieving the mattress, Squidward nearly threatened to murder SpongeBob, and then he used him and Patrick as "worm bait". However, Squidward becomes the worm's prey.
  • In "Krusty Towers," He made several ridiculous requests with the purpose of driving Mr. Krabs crazy (though Krabs did have this coming).
  • In "New Fish in Town," He dragged SpongeBob, Patrick, and Howard's homes down a trench.
  • In "That Sinking Feeling," He tried to separate SpongeBob and Patrick by drawing a line, and later, he threatened them that if Squidward's house was not back to normal on the count of three, he will grind them into chum (kill them).
  • In "Restraining SpongeBob," Squidward had a restraining order placed on SpongeBob to keep SpongeBob away from him. When Patrick began to annoy Squidward far worse than SpongeBob, he released SpongeBob, and added Patrick to said restraining order.
  • In "Little Yellow Book," Squidward reads SpongeBob's work diary in front of the customers, which made SpongeBob sad. He sees that he has been known as a "diary thief," but does not feel be until his house was repossessed. Later, he even reads SpongeBob's personal diary. This behavior even upsets Mr. Krabs who is considered the secondary antagonist of the series.
  • In "Yeti Krabs," Squidward arrogantly attacks the Yeti Krab when he thought it was Mr. Krabs wearing a costume and nearly puts Mr. Krabs, SpongeBob, and himself in danger.

Scapegoat sideEdit

Despite Squidward's antagonist side, he has been blamed many times for things that were not his fault.

  • In "Your Shoe's Untied," SpongeBob constantly keeps tripping over his untied shoelaces, making dozens of Krabby Patties fly into Squidward's mouth. The customers blamed him for eating the food, even when Squidward told them it was SpongeBob's fault.
  • In "Krab Borg," Mr. Krabs yelled at Squidward for tying him up and destroying his items, even though SpongeBob had a hand in it and was the one who convinced Squidward that Mr. Krabs was a robot in the first place. In fact, the only reason SpongeBob was let off the hook was that he had to "feed Gary."
Sos56

No one gives a care about the fate of labor as long as they can get their instant gratification

  • In "Squid on Strike," Squidward is outraged, and goes on strike due to Mr. Krabs instead of paying him for his "work" made him pay Mr. Krabs. SpongeBob tags along (as he did not know that he would lose his job) so to get their jobs back he destroys the Krusty Krab. Mr. Krabs then makes both of them work to pay off the damages, despite the fact that Squidward did not play a part in demolishing the Krusty Krab.
  • In "Can You Spare a Dime," Mr. Krabs blamed Squidward for stealing his missing dime since he was near the cash register. This causes Squidward to quit his job, lose everything, and drive SpongeBob mad. It was soon revealed that Mr. Krabs' dime was in his pocket the entire time, and Squidward was hired back. Even so, he later accused Squidward for putting the dime in his pants, and history likely repeated itself.
  • In "The Lost Mattress," he wrote Mr. Krabs a card saying that he got him a new mattress (even though it was all SpongeBob and Patrick's idea). However, he actually caused Krabs to go into a "Cash Coma" because all his money was in the old mattress. He was then forced by the police to get the mattress back. However, this could count as karmic punishment, since he wanted to take credit for SpongeBob and Patrick's work.
  • In "Good Neighbors," SpongeBob and Patrick interrupt Squidward's Sunday morning by trying to be "good neighbors." Squidward then installs a security system to keep them away from him. However, it malfunctions causing his house to come to life, and destroy the town. After it was turned off, he was given a sentence to community service every Sunday (even though he really did not do anything).
  • In "Cephalopod Lodge," SpongeBob, and Patrick follow Squidward to a secret club of his thus causing him to be kicked out, when he really did not know they were even coming. In fact, he carefully checked his surroundings to try to avoid this.
  • In "Boating Buddies," Squidward was being annoyed by SpongeBob, so he got in his boat and attempted to drive away, however SpongeBob accidentally causes Squidward to crash, thus sending him to Mrs. Puff's Boating School. He was then injured many times due to SpongeBob’s bad driving, thus he was unable to take the test despite the fact that he knew the right answers.
  • In "Truth or Square," he, SpongeBob, Patrick, and Mr. Krabs were stuck in the air vents. Patrick then took out a radio that he "borrowed" from Sandy. He then tried calling for help, but he did not know how to use it. Therefore, Squidward used it to call Sandy. However, Sandy then accused him of stealing it from her.
  • In "Keep Bikini Bottom Beautiful," Squidward was given eight tickets to community service by the end of the episode. Even though he never actually littered, and instead was just assumed to have littered.
  • In Sentimental Sponge, SpongeBob becomes a hoarder off the idea that random garbage holds valuable memories. He later throws it into Squidward's yard. This angers Squidward, and he ends up calling the police on SpongeBob. They then condemn SpongeBob's house for being unsanitary, and then Squidward's for being covered in his garbage. Even though none of it was Squidward's, nor was he a hoarder.
  • In "The Googly Artiste," Patrick becomes famous off his "art" (ironically Squidward's seemed better from the viewers' perspective), and Mr. Krabs becomes mad at him for making his art from Krabby Patties in which he sold for more money than he bought them for. He then said he was just following Squidward’s advice, thus getting Squidward into trouble. However, that was not what Squidward meant when he was giving "advice."
  • In "Fiasco!," he was sent to prison when he really did not do anything bad at all. He led the police to SpongeBob's house saying that SpongeBob, Patrick, and Gary are making noise. In fact, he actually did the police a favor by leading them to Plankton, who stole the famous art piece Fiasco. He probably was arrested for blaming someone that had not done anything. It is possible that he went to jail for the fact that Fiasco’s painting he discovered was worthless.

Artistic SideEdit

LeisureEdit

Squidward playing clarinet

Squidward playing his clarinet

An avid patron of the arts, Squidward has a strong affection for interpretive dance, sculpting, painting, and playing the clarinet. However, he seems to have almost no talent for any of them whatsoever, although he does play the clarinet beautifully at the end of the "Christmas Who?," at the end of "Bubblestand," and in "The Two Faces of Squidward." He has often tried to impress the public with his artistic exhibitions, but is always either unrecognized, mocked by his audience, or upstaged by SpongeBob. Squidward always wants to be the center of attention but rarely ever is. In "Best Day Ever," he had a concert where he played beautifully and received thunderous applause from the audience. SpongeBob was on the VIP list for it, which is ironic, considering Squidward's intense hatred for him. Squidward also misses many chances to become famous, even in his dreams.

All of his artwork, from sculptures to paintings, depicts himself in a way, even repainting existing works to include his own face. He surrounds himself with said art throughout his house, a clear indication of his narcissist tendencies. These arts have occasionally been admired greatly by Patrick and SpongeBob, but are universally hated by the rest of Bikini Bottom.

He has tried several things to reach the fame he desires: hosting a talent show, starting his own astrology spin-off, forming a band, and so on, yet he cannot seem to get much of a following. Mr. Krabs and Patrick also seem to like him, though it may be argued that Mr. Krabs only likes Squidward because of his allegiance with the Krusty Krab. It is interesting to note that Squidward once stated, "Anyone can be a big shot in a hick town like Bikini Bottom," yet he cannot make a name for himself.

Bad but Good ArtEdit

Despite Squidward said to be a bad talentless artist, his art has been turned down many times for something that ironically was not as good.

In "Sleepy Time," Squidward is in his dream playing his clarinet to the king. SpongeBob then causes Squidward to break his clarinet by accident, and thus Squidward is forced to use SpongeBob as a replacement. It sounds horrible but everyone loved it.

In "Squid Wood," Squidward becomes jealous of Mini Squidward when he was "stealing his life" by doing all the same artistic things Squidward did (including jokes) but Squidward was always turned down for Mini Squidward despite the fact that they were both doing exactly the same things.

In "The Masterpiece," Squidward made a large statue of Mr. Krabs to eliminate the competition of the Sea Chicken Shack; however, it was turned down, and was replaced by the real Mr. Krabs.

In "The Googly Artiste," Squidward made a statue of himself, which was turned down by an art critic. Patrick then made a pet rock (nothing more than a rock with google eyes) and Squidward was turned down for a pet rock.

Good ArtEdit

Despite his reputation of being a "bad artist", he has made art that people had enjoyed.

In "Bubblestand," Squidward blew a huge bubble by using the "technique," and successfully played the clarinet by playing jazz music.

In "Artist Unknown," Squidward goes crazy in the end, and creates a great statue in the process.

In "Best Day Ever," Squidward does a clarinet concert in which people seem to enjoy.

In "The Two Faces of Squidward," Squidward becomes handsome after a face injury caused by SpongeBob.

In "Giant Squidward," Squidward gets a new clarinet that sounds good.

In "Suction Cup Symphony," Squidward has an orchestra perform a song he wrote to Bikini Bottom (while attempting to ignore SpongeBob and Patrick along the way).

Frozen-Face-Off-e1310140691969-1-

Squidward almost freezing to death.

Criminal RecordEdit

Squidward could sometimes break the law causing him to go to jail in some episodes. Besides Mr. Krabs and Plankton, he also has many criminal records and reasons why he is in jail. The only reason he likes to be in prison is that he could get away from his neighbors.

OccupationEdit

Squidward works as the cashier at the Krusty Krab restaurant, along with his co-worker, SpongeBob SquarePants. He not only hates his duties but the Krusty Krab itself, and he performs his job rather poorly and with a lack of enthusiasm. He also frequently behaves rudely to the customers. He has often expressed a desire to be fired or simply quit, but never makes good on it; he only seems to work there because he needs the money. In "Just One Bite," he reveals that he has never eaten a Krabby Patty and thinks them to be disgustingly unhealthy, although after having "just one bite", he falls in love with them. However, this fact is contradicted by an earlier episode in which SpongeBob forgets how to tie his shoe and, consequently, throws several Krabby Patties down Squidward's throat. (An explanation for this could be that since he did not taste them with his tongue, he thought they were bad). In "The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie," Squidward is manager of the Krusty Krab 2 for six days, although due to Plankton's invasion of Bikini Bottom, the new restaurant is not in service during this time. It is also shown here that Squidward actually cares about what happens to the Krusty Krab and the Krabby Patty formula when he discovers Plankton selling Krabby Patties and threatens to report him to King Neptune. In Selling Out, Squidward worked as the waiter for Krabby O' Mondays. He was forced to maintain a false state of happiness, or else face "Human Resources," a thug in the back of the building.

Squidward has also been:

Captain magma

Captain Magma.

Near-Death ExperiencesEdit

Squidward has had many injuries and near-death experiences. He is one of the most unfortunate characters, and is in some way hurt in almost every episode he is in (such as his head and/or nose exploding or deflating). He is shown to be an underdog, a person who almost never wins. SpongeBob surprisingly does not cause a lot of Squidwards' near death-experiences, but his best friend Patrick does. In some episodes, he caused his own near-death experiences (e.g. breaking his own "laugh box," freezing himself almost to death, suffocating himself with three pillows on his head, eating too many Krabby Patties and exploding.) He almost froze to death in "Frozen Face-Off." He is also almost always injured by his bad karma. He is also allergic to seaberries as seen in "Restraining SpongeBob"

Squid

Squidward has eaten too many patties

Creation and DevelopmentEdit

This was stated in various interviews and audio commentaries with creator Stephen Hillenburg and a few voice actors.

Stephen Hillenburg quotes the following: "Squidward is an octopus, despite the fact that he's called a squid, "It was easier for animation to draw him with six legs instead of eight."

He quotes: "Squidward's name is a portmanteau of the word "squid" and the name "Edward."

RelationshipsEdit

Naughty Nautical Neighbors Gallery (51)

Squidward kicks SpongeBob and Patrick out of his destroyed house.

SpongeBob SquarePantsEdit

Squidward dislikes SpongeBob, and often tries to avoid him. The main reason Squidward's massive hatred for SpongeBob's existence is because SpongeBob can be extremely annoying towards Squidward, but SpongeBob is unaware of this, and thus continues to irritate him. However, on occasions, Squidward can display sympathy for SpongeBob, and this is especially seen in the episodes "Pizza Delivery" and "Christmas Who?" In addition, when Squidward is in a good mood, he is usually kind to SpongeBob. He admired SpongeBob's selfless bravery against the Flying Dutchman in "Born Again Krabs." Later, in "SpongeBob, You're Fired!," Squidward fought off four crazed restaurant owners to rescue SpongeBob and later admitted that as much he hates him, he hates the smell of rotten Krabby Patties more.

BornAgainKrabs80

Squidward is angry at Mr. Krabs.

Mr. KrabsEdit

Squidward does not seem to mind Mr. Krabs, but can sometimes lose patience with him, usually when he is a cheapskate, which usually results in him getting angry with Krabs. In "Born Again Krabs," he chastised Mr. Krabs for selling SpongeBob's soul for pocket change. He also gets outraged when Mr. Krabs blames something on him. Regardless, Squidward and Mr. Krabs have been working together for a long time so the two have developed a decent relationship.

Patrick StarEdit

Squidward dislikes Patrick, but sometimes likes him, the reason is somehow Patrick can be a non-annoying type occasionally and can be quiet sometimes. In "Naughty Nautical Neighbors," he befriends with him, because he saved his life. Squidward, however, mostly calls him an idiot, imbecile etc.

PlanktonEdit

Squidward and Sheldon J. Plankton have an awkward relationship. They usually dislike each other. However, in the episodes "Sweet and Sour Squid" and "Chum Fricassee," they team up, although they remain enemies in the end.

Gary the SnailEdit

Gary and Squidward are enemies. Gary annoys Squidward while Gary thinks Squidward is a jerk. However, Squidward does seem to have feelings for Gary as seen in I Was a Teenage Gary. And they seem to sometimes share the same opinion about Spongebob's annoying antics as Squidward once replied "Oh, tell me about it!" in Giant Squidward. In Are You Happy Now?, Gary seemed to be concerned for Squidward like SpongeBob was.

Sandy CheeksEdit

Squidward and Sandy usually do not talk to each other, but in one episode, she transformed Squidward and SpongeBob after being stuck together. Sandy is the only character Squidward seems to have no problems with, although Sandy does seem to sometimes to find Squidward intolerable, such as his recent assault on a Creepy Crawler with Karate for revenge instead of self-defense in "Squid Defense."

SquilviaEdit

Squilvia is Squidward's girlfriend in "Love that Squid." In that episode, Squilvia visits the Krusty Krab and Squidward falls in love with her and gets nervous around her, so SpongeBob has to act as his wingsponge. SpongeBob tells Squilvia that Squidward likes her and manages to get Squidward a date with her. However, Squidward is unprepared to go on a date because he has not gone on one in years. Therefore, SpongeBob teaches Squidward how to act in a date by pretending to be his girlfriend and going on a simulated date. After Squidward cannot take it anymore, he yells at SpongeBob. However, he does not realize that Squilvia has arrived for their date. Squidward then thinks that she would not go out with him because he yelled at SpogneBob. However, she likes that he stood up for himself. They then go on their date.

It is unknown what happens to this relationship after this episode. It is possible that they went on one date and ended it or dated for a while with the same result. However, this is not confirmed. It is possible that they are still dating by the time of The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie. If they are still together, it is suggested that they are not living together at this point. This is given by two instances: 1. SpongeBob is easily able to get into his house and Squidward is able to kick SpongeBob out without confrontation with Squilvia. 2. He is able to speak loudly when he says, "Too bad SpongeBob's not here to enjoy SpongeBob not being here."

FamilyEdit

RivalryEdit

SquilliamFace

Squilliam Fancyson

Squidward's arch-rival is Squilliam Fancyson, whom he first met in high school band class, who, like all other octopi on the show, looks and acts similar to Squidward, but wears a robe and has a unibrow. Unlike Squidward, however, Squilliam is extremely successful in everything that Squidward has failed in, and is living Squidward's dream of being a wealthy celebrity artist with crowds of adoring fans, usually with many admirers following his presence. In Squilliam’s debut episode, "Band Geeks," he calls Squidward, at his home, to once again, rub his success in his face, saying that his band is signed to play at the Bubble Bowl but cannot come, and sarcastically asking Squidward for his "band" to cover for them. Squidward, caught in the moment, claims that he does have a band and will play at the Bubble Bowl, forcing him to put together a band from the residents of Bikini Bottom. Thanks to SpongeBob, their performance turns out to be much better than Squilliam could have ever expected, causing him to have a heart attack.

Squilliam returns in the aptly named episode "Squilliam Returns," in which Squidward meets Squilliam and a crowd of his fans. Squilliam tries to embarrass Squidward by showing the crowd his lowly position as a cashier, but Squidward claims to own a five-star restaurant, and Squilliam agrees to take the group to dinner there, expecting this claim to be exposed as a lie. Squidward's attempts at converting the Krusty Krab into a five-star restaurant are initially unsuccessful, until he gets SpongeBob to clear his mind of everything "except fine dining and breathing." SpongeBob is able to turn the Krusty Krab into an extremely extravagant and fancy diner. Everything goes well until Squilliam, who is admittedly impressed, asks his waiter (SpongeBob) his name. SpongeBob, having erased everything else from his mind, forgets his own name and subsequently everything else, going insane and destroying the "fancy restaurant" environment, with the help of Mr. Krabs' disgusting "appetizer" coming to life.

Squilliam appears again in "House Fancy" where Squilliam calls Squidward to boast about how his enormous house was chosen as fanciest house on the show House Fancy. Squidward then calls the show's host and claims his house is better. Then with the help of SpongeBob, he attempts to make it look better but ultimately ends up destroying his house. This, the show’s host thinks is a revolutionary house design and for the second time Squidward is able to beat Squilliam.

Love InterestsEdit

Love That Squid 11

Squidward meets Squilvia.

  • In "Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy V," Squidward stated, "Ah, make out reef... good times, good times..." Meaning he had probably been there when he was young with a love interest.
  • In "That's No Lady," Squidward and Mr. Krabs fell for Patrick, who was posing as a woman named Patricia because Patrick thought an assassin was trying to force him to leave Bikini Bottom.
  • In "Love That Squid," Squidward made a date with another octopus named, "Squilvia".

ResidenceEdit

Main article: 122 Conch Street
Squidward&#039;s House

Squidward's house.

Squidward lives in a house resembling an Easter Island moai that is alive in good neighbors, placed between SpongeBob and Patrick's houses at 122 Conch Street, an address that was revealed in Slide Whistle Stooges. It has been personified several times, such as in the episode "The Secret Box," where it seems to be peaking at SpongeBob and Patrick's talk. Despite Squidward's wish for peace and quiet, his two neighbors, SpongeBob and Patrick, make it nearly impossible, due to their high level of childish immaturity and silliness. If Squidward had the choice, he would move. He did so in "Squidville," but ultimately decided that he had moved somewhere even worse. In "Opposite Day," Squidward tried to move, but SpongeBob and Patrick caused the real estate agent who was originally trying to sell Squidward's house to leave angrily, so Squidward had to stay. He also moved in "Stanley S. SquarePants," because he had realized that there were "two of them" and he became horrified. Squidward does not live alone; Snellie, his snail from "The Great Snail Race," is in residence with him. In "Can You Spare a Dime?," after quitting his job from the Krusty Krab, Squidward was homeless until SpongeBob found him living in a cardboard box and then he ends up living in SpongeBob's house. Squidward almost became homeless again in "Giant Squidward," when he turned into a giant.

In the episode "Squidville," after Squidward's house is destroyed by SpongeBob and Patrick, he sees an advertisement on TV about a town called "Tentacle Acres," home of many octopi who are virtually identical to Squidward, even living in Easter Island Heads. He decides to move there, and for a while, life is spectacular, as he finds a large community of like-minded octopi into which he fits perfectly. Eventually, though, he starts to tire of the boring daily routine in which he does the same things every day in order. He begins to wreak havoc throughout the overly structured civilization of Tentacle Acres with a reef blower and an angry mob is formed against him, who corners him in an alley and forces him to escape by launching himself into the sky with his reef blower, maniacally yelling "Freedom!"

TriviaEdit

  • During October 2007, where Nickelodeon characters were shown dressed as various monsters during commercial breaks, Squidward was dressed as what appears to be the Phantom of the Opera.
  • Squidward is right-handed, as seen in Artist Unknown, where he tries to draw a circle.
  • Squidward appears to be not much older than SpongeBob and Patrick, although Patrick and SpongeBob are often called kids, probably due to their childlike tendencies and immaturity.
  • Squidward has a distinct laugh, which always makes his nose inflate and deflate (much likely being a reference to the octopus's contractile mantle).
  • Squidward can also be seen dressed in a Santa costume during a "Happy Ha Ha Holidays" commercial, due to his portrayal of Santa Claus in "Christmas Who?" to avoid hurting SpongeBob's feelings.
  • Some people online have stated that Squidward's birthday is in October. However, the SpongeBob SquarePants staff members have not officially confirmed this.
  • In the Krusty Krab, Squidward sometimes has different jobs from his regular cashier job, usually replacing SpongeBob as fry cook when he is absent.
  • In "Can You Spare a Dime?," Squidward says he is allergic to newsprint but he has touched newsprint in several episodes.
  • Squidward often mentions the running length of one episode of the show (Eleven minutes), usually in subtle ways. A recognizable quote would be, "I'll give him eleven minutes." from the episode "Nature Pants," or "Oh, why must every eleven minutes of my life be filled with misery?!," from "Club SpongeBob."
Tengen toppa gurren lagann squidward cameo

A cameo of Squidward in Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann

  • A character resembling Squidward make a cameo appearance in the Japanese anime Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann
  • Sometimes his middle initial is different. It's either "Squidward Q. Tentacles" or "Squidward J. Tentacles."
  • In the episodes "Employee of the Month," "Sweet and Sour Squid," "The Good Krabby Name," and "Super Evil Aquatic Villain Team Up is Go!," Squidward can successfully cook Krabby Patties. However, he was bad at it in "Pickles," "Hooky," and "The Algae's Always Greener." It is possible that he learned to be a better cook because of all of the times SpongeBob was gone in all those episodes.
  • In some episodes, Squidward reads magazines at his job. The title varies a lot. Titles include "Dance!," “Art," "Squid Ink" and "House Fancy"
  • In Japanese, Squidward's name has been changed to "Ikardo Tentacles," Ikardo being a portmanteau of ikara (the Japanese word for squid) and Ricardo.
  • In "Restraining SpongeBob," it is stated that Squidward is allergic to seaberries.
  • Squidward's name means Edward, so when SpongeBob calls him Squid, it means Ed, and Squiddy, means Eddie.
  • Despite being called talentless in art, Squidward would actually be a great artist if he expanded his artistic subjects to other things besides himself. Alas his obsession with his image spurs him to create self-portraits or rip-offs of famous artworks.
