He is a turquoise octopus that is similar in appearance to Squidward. He wears a jester outfit that is colored crimson and burnt orange, and has a black colored belt with a gold buckle.
Much like Squidward, he plays the clarinet and also sings. Squidly seems to be more well-mannered than his descendant is, as he is not as hostile towards SpongeBob and Patrick.
Role in series
He meets the time travelers SpongeBob and Patrick while he is in prison, and sets out with them to rescue Princess Pearl. They succeed, and at the end, Squidly accidentally goes to the future, to SpongeBob and Patrick's time.
