Behind the Scenes

Squidward Quincy Tentacles is an anthropomorphic octopus who lives next door to SpongeBob and Patrick. He is the deuteragonist of the SpongeBob SquarePants series. He is also one of the main characters in Patrick's New LifeHe still lives with SpongeBob now, but they don't show him very often anymore on the main SpongeBob SquarePants show because he is the star of some other shows, such as Squid vs. Squid and Squidward Chat. He has a love crush on Squidney Weely. He is a former pro wrestler in a company called WWC. He got the style of WWE wrestler William Regal. He is the King of the Ring 2009 winner. He was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 2015. In SpongeBob n' Stuff's Temmie n' Stuff sub-series, he is the royal butler in Temopolis to King Tem, Queen Tem and Temmie.

In SpongeBob Boom, he is one of the main characters.

In No Malarkey in Bikini Bottom, he is a supporter and donor of the Bernie Sanders campaign.


Squidward serves as the third main character of both series, the real one, and almost every fanon one. He appeared in many episodes since the show started, but had very few appearances in the last two seasons. This is commonly tied to him leaving for his new spin-off series,The Squidward Show. He has moved on to star in Squid Vs. Squid and Awkward, Octopus for a slightly younger audience. He came back to the show SpongeBob SquarePants because Patrick and SpongeBob got less annoying. Squidward plays Clarinet. Squidward was created in 1999 when he was 26 years old. In the episode Up and Down, he got blocked out after messing up the national anthem at Bikini Bottom Stadium.
