"Who lives in a pineapple under the sea?" The real question is, who lives in a sunken Tikki head in the same neighborhood in the fictional town of Bikini Bottom? The answer: Squidward Q. Tentacles!

Squidward is a supporting character in the animated series Spongebob Squarepants and its associated films. He works as a cashier at the Krusty Krab while dreaming of a life as an artist or clarinet player. Arrogant, bitter, and dissatisfied, Spongebob and Patrick don't notice his animosity towards them but instead consider him a friend.

One of the show's writers described Squidward as "the most human character" and therefore the most relatable.

Did you know? Although his name includes the word "squid," Squidward has only six arms, not the eight arms and two tentacles (totaling ten) as do squid. He is more similar to the octopus, which effectively has six arms and two legs.
