Squidward Tentacles


I am a fictional character voiced by actor Rodger Bumpass in the American animated television series SpongeBob SquarePants. I was created and designed by marine biologist and animator Stephen Hillenburg. I first appeared on television in the series' pilot episode "Help Wanted" on May 1, 1999. Hillenburg designed me with six tentacles, believing that "it was really just simpler for animation to draw Squidward with six legs instead of eight".
