The painting has a yellow background. A naked caricature of Squidward is the center of the piece, but with only four limbs instead of six. Also, this caricature has no mouth. The color of the caricature is green.
Role in series
At the Adult Learning Center, Squidward gets a job as an art teacher. The art collector, Monty P. Moneybags, arrives, and one of the pieces that Squidward shows him is Bold and Brash. Mocking Squidward, Monty remarks, "More like, belongs in the trash!" so the Janitor throws it in the garbage.
Later, after Squidward motivates SpongeBob to get back to making art, SpongeBob finds Bold and Brash in a pile of garbage.
"Goons on the Moon"
Bold and Brash is one of many objects that SpongeBob finds in Mrs. Puff's lighthouse.
Bold and Brash appears as an item in the Prop Shop. It is on a canvas with a golden frame. The player is able to select it from the props menu and add it to the park for their snails to look at. When the player clicks it, it gets covered with splashes of blue and green paint.
- An early animatic of "Unreal Estate" reveals that Bold and Brash was originally going to reappear as a decoration in Squidward's house.
- As revealed by Adam Paloian, Bold and Brash was planned to have a different appearance when it was first drawn. In the original sketch of it, Squidward's caricature had a dolphin-like body, a wide smile, and both eyes visible. The background of the painting had bubbles and a faint skyline. It is unknown why the design was changed.
- Bold and Brash has become a popular internet meme.
