Squidward is possibly the saddest excuse for a living animated creature ever created. Created as part of the KKK's Original Television Show Initiative, he has gone down in infamy for being the literal worst character to appear on television.
So for whatever reason back in 1999, the KKK (Ku Klux Klan for you idiots out there) decided that they needed a show to warp the minds of children in hopes that they will become a part of the KKK. The KKK launched the infamous OTVSI, or Original Television Show Initiative. There were several shows thrown in the mix but only one managed to stand out among the crowd. That show was, of course, "30 Minutes with Squidward". That's right, Squidward almost got his own show! Isn't that crazy? But sadly, even in it's radiant glory, 30 Minutes with Squidward lost to the now ever popular Spongebob Squarepants. Squidward was transferred from his own show to Spongebob, so the creator of Squidward decided to make the character reflect his feelings at the time. Angry, depressed and cynical.
How is Squidward in the present day? Horrendous. His personality is as bland as Michael Jackson's canvas white face on white bread, and his taste in music is hipster-ish to put it bluntly. This is not a man you want to be around. He also frequents the Calm-Down Corner.
