Squog is one of Squidward Tentacles' prehistoric ancestors. He first appears in the episode "Ugh."


Squog looks very similar to Squidward, except he has a five-o'clock shadow, a unibrow, some black hairs on his head, and one tooth. He also wears a stereotypical caveman outfit instead of a shirt.

He owns a house and two clubs and apparently, the clubs have emotions of some sort, as one cries when Squog chooses the other to go yell at Prehistoric Gary with. Most of the time he slips on the slime trail of Prehistoric Gary. His neighbors are SpongeGar and Patar.


He enjoyed painting like his descendant, Squidward, but unlike him, he is more talented. There is no record of him playing an instrument aside from the primitive clarinet he had.


At some point, he lives in a primitive house that's reminiscent of a "Moai," giant statues found on Easter Island also referred to as the Easter Island Heads.

At some point, he met Patar and SpongeGar.

Along with Patar and SpongeGar, they discovered fire.
