Squidward, who resides in an Island head and works as SpongeBob’s fellow worker at the ‘Krusty Krab’, is one of the 10 main characters in the SpongeBob SquarePants series. Squidward is a generally unpleasant artist as well as musician, and his favorite hobbies include painting self-portraits as well as playing the clarinet.
Spongebob Squarepants’s Squidward Creation
When Stephen Hillenburg was a young child, the water captured his attention and he started to develop his artistic skills. After earning his degree, Stephen Hillenburg joined the ‘Ocean Institute’, a nonprofit dedicated to ocean education, where he developed the concept for The Intertidal Zone, a comic book that later inspired the development of SpongeBob SquarePants. From his comic book, Hillenburg borrowed certain character designs. Stephen Hillenburg modeled SpongeBob’s cranky next-door neighbor after an octopus due to the creature’s huge head. Because it was just easier for animation to illustrate him with a total of six legs rather than eight. Hillenburg gave Squidward six tentacles.
Squidward is a fervent supporter of the arts and particularly enjoys clarinet music, sculpture, and interpretive dance. Squidward plays the clarinet magnificently at the conclusion of “Christmas Who?,” at the conclusion of “Bubblestand,” as well as in “The 2 Faces of Squidward,” but he appears to have virtually no aptitude for any of them. Squidward has made numerous attempts to astonish viewers with his creative displays, but he is always either ignored, made fun of by his spectators, or eclipsed by SpongeBob. Although he rarely is, Squidward constantly wishes to be the center of attention. Squidward gave a performance called “Best Day Ever” in which he performed flawlessly and was showered with roaring cheers from the crowd.
Squidward’s Character Traits In Spongebob Squarepants Series
Squidward’s work ethic explains why he is viewed as rude, unhappy, obstinate, snobby, grumpy, bad-tempered, self-centered, wretched, pessimistic, hypocritical, and occasionally sadistic. Squidward has such a pessimistic outlook on life that he rarely greets people with a grin. Squidward despises working at the ‘Krusty Krab’ as well as is frequently spotted reading or dozing off instead. Squidward is one of the smartest and most well-read figures despite his temper. Squidward lacks self-acceptance, has a grandiose view of himself, and is pessimistic, viewing others as barbaric idiots. Squidward blames society for his shortcomings because he feels underappreciated and misunderstood. Squidward is painfully pretentious in his quest for fame, unable or unwilling to recognise ability, and even insults it. Squidward praises established norms and “cultivated taste.”
Squidward’s Work Ethic
Squidward shares a job at the Krusty Krab as the cashier with SpongeBob SquarePants. Squidward not only despises his job but also the Krusty Krab, which results in him doing it poorly and without much enthusiasm. Additionally, Squidward frequently treats the customers badly. Squidward frequently states that he wants to be terminated or just leave, but he never follows through. As the series goes on, Squidward appears to simply be working there out of utter laziness rather than because he truly needs the money; originally, Squidward only seems to be there since he needs the money.
