Mr. Manward is a reenactment character portrayed by Rodger Bumpass in "SpongeBob's Big Birthday Blowout." He is the human version of Squidward Tentacles.


He is an elderly man who wears a Trusty Slab hat with a blue anchor on it, a white shirt, and brown pants.

Role in episode

He is the cashier who works at the Trusty Slab, serving Patrick, Carol, and the customers from the gorilla mask company.


  • Unlike Squidward, he wears pants, because it would be inappropriate to show full-on nudity or even just underwear in live-action form.
  • According to Vincent Waller, the reason why they did not do 6 limbs for Manward was because it was hard to do in live-action.[1]
