Squog is one of the prehistoric ancestors of Squidward Tentacles. 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.

Role in series


He discovers fire in this episode along with SpongeGar and Patar, who are also his neighbors. Squog likes hitting SpongeGar with a club and was fighting for the log that contained fire.

At the end, the fire is put out and Squog is struck by lightning.

"Atlantis SquarePantis"

Squog is seen in Squidward's song painting a picture of his own head inside one of Atlantis' paintings when the head comes alive with Squidward singing. He then gets scared by the sight and runs away.

"Not Normal"/"Squid's Visit"

Squog appears as one of Squidward's self-portraits.

Role in Video Games

Lights, Camera, Pants!

In the PC version of the video game, a giant jellyfish stings him and he runs to his house in pain. SpongeBob comes and gives him Kevin's Ointment, after which his wounds then disappear.

Later, SpongeBob asks him to be an actor in The Adventures of Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy; Squog accepts it.


He is the oldest known member of the Tentacles family and has six tentacles like the rest of the family and he too is an octopus.
