Squidward's vacuum cleaner appears in the episodes "House Fancy," "Squid's Visit," and "I ♥ Dancing," as well as the online game Cook It 'n' Book It.


"House Fancy"

It is an upright vacuum cleaner that has a silver metal base, a bamboo handle, four wheels, and a green bag. This version also includes a speed adjustment switch turned on by flicking a red button.

"Squid's Visit"

It resembles a round metal cylinder with a black rubber hose attached to one end, a metal nozzle, and two pairs of wheels.

Role in series

"House Fancy"

Squidward goes upstairs to help his wound, and he tells SpongeBob to vacuum for him. SpongeBob grabs the vacuum cleaner, but he gets the "On" switch stuck. The vacuum gets jammed on "High suck" and starts sucking up Squidward's furniture, carpets, and walls.

Squidward comes downstairs and sees that the vacuum cleaner bag is enormous. SpongeBob tries to turn it off, but gets himself sucked into the vacuum cleaner.

Later, Patrick arrives with SpongeBob's brain. The vacuum cleaner sucks up the brain too, which causes the device to explode, destroying both it and Squidward's house.

"Squid's Visit"

SpongeBob "borrows" Squidward's vacuum cleaner to make Squidward visit his house. Squidward goes to SpongeBob's house in search of his beloved vacuum cleaner. After a while, he finds his vacuum cleaner in the closet along with the rest of SpongeBob's furniture. He tries to yank it out, but the force causes him to fall down the stairs with his vacuum cleaner.

Squidward finds out the vacuum cleaner is his and drags it out of SpongeBob's house, until he notices that his own house burned down because SpongeBob kept him away from his casserole. SpongeBob comforts him, encouraging Squidward to stay at his house.

This causes Squidward to go into a state of shock and start imagining himself having tea with his vacuum cleaner, until he starts laughing hysterically.

"I ♥ Dancing"

SpongeBob, who is showing off his dance moves with a cane, pulls the top of the cane off where flowers appear to sprout out of it. SpongeBob then places the flowers on Squidward's hat, causing Squidward to suck the flowers up with his vacuum cleaner, due to his annoyance of SpongeBob's dance moves.

Role in Cook It 'n' Book It

The vacuum cleaner appears as the play button on the "How to play" menu. It also appears every time the player starts a new level, moving onto the screen next to "Level (number)." The vacuum cleaner then sucks up the letters and number(s) and moves off-screen.
