"Everybody's a critic."

Squidward Quincy Tentacles is one of the main protagonists in the Nickelodeon animated comedy series, SpongeBob SquarePants. He is a grumpy octopus who despises his neighbors SpongeBob and Patrick, obviously because of their childlike behaviors. He is a turquoise octopus who lives in an Easter Island head.

Why He Rocks

  1. Despite being a bad artist, he did make good art that people have enjoyed.
  2. He is vain and grouchy, but those traits are put to good use.
  3. He is proven to be more caring than his employer, Mr. Krabs.
  4. Rodger Bumpass did an awesome job voicing the character.
  5. His clarinet skills may be poor most of the time, but that isn't always the case; he played the clarinet very nicely a few times.
  6. His design is pretty fantastic, but his Sour-Note superhero design is even better!
  7. Though cynical often, SpongeBob finds the good in him.
  8. He finds Mr. Krabs a cheapskate, unlike SpongeBob.
  9. His laugh is very good.
  10. Fortunately, he was the least flanderized character next to Plankton back when the series went downhill.

Bad Qualities

  1. Some can be annoyed by his bad attitude.
  2. Some people get confused about whether he is a squid due to his name, even though he is actually an octopus.
