Squidward Tentacles is a main character in the series, Spongebob Squarepants. Squidward is a grouchy squid, which sometimes places him in antagonistic roles. He lives in an Eastern Island Head next to Spongebob Squarepants and Patrick Star. He usually does not appreciate their company but often falls victim to their silly antics. Because of his pride, he usually tries to hide his enjoyment of Spongebob and Patrick's simple activities. He works at the Krusty Krab as a cashier and a co-worker to Spongebob. Squidward is innately fascinated with the arts: He is a modest self-portraitist and plays his clarinet faithfully. Since high school, Squidward has had a bitter rivalry with fellow squid Squilliam Fancyson and has tried to better Squilliam on multiple occasions. One such time was in Band Geeks when Squilliam challenges Squidward to form a band to play at the Bubble Bowl. Squidward's band, made up of the citizens of Bikini Bottom, plays exceptionally well, causing Squilliam to faint in amazement. Squidward later claims to have a house far better than Squilliam's in House Fancy. Though he destroys his own house, Nicholas Withers, the host of House Fancy, states that the house is a piece of art and gives Squidward's House the title of House Fancy. Though he is usually depicted as an antagonist in the series, he has had multiple positive roles as well, most notably in Born Again Krabs and The Spongebob Squarepants Movie. In the former, he harshly scolds Mr. Krabs for selling Spongebob to the Flying Dutchman for sixty-two cents, saying that Spongebob stuck up for him and that Krabs should be ashamed of himself. In the movie, he tries to confront Plankton but fails when he is attacked by the other citizens of Bikini Bottom. He wears a brown shirt but usually does not wear pants.
