Squidward Quincy Tentacles is a character on the Nicktoon show SpongeBob SquarePants. Squidward is a cephalopod, but his species is an octopus according to the series' creators, despite his name containing the word squid. Squidward lives in a house shaped like the head of an Easter Island Moai, and he lives between SpongeBob and Patrick in Bikini Bottom. He works as a cashier alongside SpongeBob at the Krusty Krab restaurant, a job he dislikes. Squidward is considered an outsider to the Bikini Bottom citizens and displays an unjustified air of superiority. The series' animators made Squidward with six tentacles, believing that giving him the eight tentacles of an octopus has made him look too burdened. Squidward appears in 278 episodes of the series, second only to SpongeBob's appearance in all episodes.
Unlike most characters in the series, Squidward is generally cynical, grumpy, tactless, miserable, short-tempered, and narcissistic. He despises many things, including his consistently annoying neighbors SpongeBob and Patrick, his job at the Krusty Krab, and is an outcast among the citizens of Bikini Bottom. He is very open about his dissatisfaction with his job, and has frequently displayed unprofessional behavior such as sleeping at his counter, failing to clean his workplace, and excusing himself to the restroom to fall asleep. Squidward enjoys playing his clarinet (at an elementary level with frequent missed notes and poor intonation, though Squidward considers himself a brilliant musical prodigy), modern dance, abstract art, relaxing, public radio, select television programs, and just about anything else that he considers "fancy". His work is criticized by everyone, except his mother and neighbors. In Truth or Square, it was revealed that Squidward was a happy and laid back person with a secret garden, but it changes when a pineapple falls over him and his garden, and SpongeBob bought the "house". The years of irritation with SpongeBob have turned Squidward into the geriatric and grumpy character that he is now. However, he still employs a unique laugh that appears occasionally (especially in cases of schadenfreude), with a strong accent on the second part of the syllable- "aHAH".
Although Squidward likes to consider himself as above the mundane and often immature activities of his peers, he has constantly exhibited an unhealthy obsession with and dedication to such activities when exposed to them. In the episode Just One Bite, for instance, it is revealed that he has never had a Krabby Patty. When he finally begins to eat one, he discovers he actually enjoys them and proceeds to eat so many of them that he gains weight and explodes. In another episode, Idiot Box, he initially scoffs at SpongeBob and Patrick's attempt to have fun just by playing in a cardboard box, but obsesses over how they are able to "make the box work" when he hears noises coming from inside the box. In yet another episode, Snowball Effect, he grudgingly participates in a snowball fight with SpongeBob and Patrick, but becomes so engrossed in the game that he builds a huge snow fort and continues to throw snowballs long after his neighbors have gone inside.
Squidward was introduced in the series premiere of the show, as the cashier of the Krusty Krab restaurant. He has held this position for the entire series, and serves as the co-worker of SpongeBob, who is the establishment's fry cook. He has sought more prestigious and lucrative careers in the arts but has largely failed, as his arch-rival, a similarly designed but much more successful cephalopod named "Squilliam Fancyson," regularly notes whenever he appears. Only in one episode of the series ("Band Geeks") does Squidward ever approach the level of success he desires, when he (much to his surprise) conducts a band composed of Bikini Bottom residents in a performance of "Sweet Victory" in front of a large crowd at the Bubble Bowl (an American football game), causing Squilliam to have a heart attack.
