List of places

Tentacle Acres is the gated community for octopi in which Squidward Tentacles briefly lived in for part of the episode "Squidville." It has a high-tech security system, designed to make sure that no sponges, starfish, or any other non-octopus species go in; through this, it is implied that all residents moved there to escape from annoying sponges and starfish like SpongeBob and Patrick. All the houses are in rows of the same Easter Island Head Squidward lives in. Some of its features include a Health Depot selling Canned Bread, an interpretive dance academy, a scenic park, a bike path, a bandstand where a clarinet trio performs, and a quick service cafe kiosk (French style).

Front Gate

The Front Gate is the only entrance to Tentacle Acres. In the episode, due to Patrick's bad breath from the fried oyster skins he ate, the guards passed out, and one of them fell on the "open gate" button. SpongeBob and Patrick were therefore able to gain access to the gate. 


Health Store

Full of Health is a health depot frequently visited by Squidward in the episode. Full of Health sells healthy foods such as Canned Bread. A bike stand is featured by the front entrance for the use of bikers such as Squidward. It is also across the street from Tentacle Acres' Interpretive Dance Academy.

Le Café

Le Café is a food stand visited by Squidward and two men in the episode. One woman is the only worker at Le Cafe. When Squidward gets his hands on the reef blower, he happily rearranges the faces of the two men ordering. Le Café is a fast-service cafe and the known food sold are coffee and cookies.

Interpretive Dance Academy

The Interpretive Dance Academy is across the street from Full of Health. Squidward and the locals visit the Academy daily for lessons and moves. The other cephalopods have a passion to dance the way Squidward dances.

Tentacle Acres Park

Tentacle Acres Park is frequently visited by the locals such as bikers, sports players, and children. The park is also where Squidward happens to find a reef blower. A croquet course, a fountain, a bandstand, and park benches are all featured in Tentacle Acres Park. It is surrounded by a bunch of grass.

304 New Life Street

304 New Life Street is inhabited by Squidward Tentacles during the episode. House 304 is on New Life Street along with House 303 and 302. It is identical to Squidward's old house as are each of the other houses here.

New Police Club

Law enforcement in the community has at least three members. Two operate at the entrance to this area. Another works in a similar field to a patrol officer. It is unknown whether there are any vehicles used to operate in the law enforcement. Compared to the Bikini Bottom Police, they are more supportive to the law.

Tentacle Acres Cocoa Shop

A shop that sells cocoa. It's only seen in the PC version of Lights, Camera, Pants!

Culture Band Club

Many of the citizens have an interest in biking, clarinets, and dancing. It is also implied that residents enjoy foreign cuisine, such as French. It is also inferred that they have a routine of habit doing the same dance in dancing class every day and playing the same song on the clarinet every day.





  • There are approximately 892 houses according to the picture.
  • The other inhabitants appear to do the same thing day in and day out, day and night without getting bored, except for Squidward, who realizes his desire of lifestyle is quite boring by doing it each and every day.
  • Squidward's quote, "Stay back, I've got garden tools," has become a popular media meme.
  • Tentacle Acres is the only known gated community in Bikini Bottom.
  • Squidward moved into house 304.
