Did Squidward have a wife?  The SpongeBob SquarePants theory explained and debunked


Although Sponge Bob SquarePants is meant for children, he hasn’t been immune to all types of theories, many of which don’t make much sense, like the one that says the reason Squidward is always sad is because his wife lack. Nickelodeon has hosted a variety of cartoons that have become very popular with viewers, but the most successful Nicktoon to date is Sponge Bob SquarePants, created by Stephen Hillenburg. The show debuted in 1999 and has since grown into one of the longest-running animated series, allowing it to expand into other media as well.

Sponge Bob SquarePants takes viewers to the bottom of the ocean to visit the underwater city of Bikini Bottom, where the main character and his friends (and a few enemies) live and get involved in all kinds of trouble. Throughout his various adventures, SpongeBob is often accompanied by his best friends Patrick Star and Sandy Cheeks, his neighbor and colleague Squidward Tentacles, and his greedy boss Mr. Krabs, as well as his pet snail Gary, who is join in the fun every now and then. Each character has their own unique personality and quirks, and one that has become popular with viewers is Squidward, as he’s the opposite of SpongeBob, which has given way to some weird theories.

As mentioned above, Squidward is SpongeBob’s neighbor and colleague at Krusty Krab, so he has to spend a lot of time with the ever-cheerful Sponge, much to his chagrin. While SpongeBob SquarePants are upbeat, childish, and ignorant, Squidward is cranky, stubborn, and rude, and nothing seems to be working in his favor. This prompted fans to come up with all kinds of theories as to why Squidward is like this, and one suggested that Squidward was once married, but his wife left him and his life was never the same. ever since – and of course SpongeBob had something to do with it, but not like you might think.

The theory has gone viral TIC Tac and has now been removed, but descriptions of it can be found online. The author of the video explained that Squidward isn’t always bad, but failures in his love life have led him to be a pessimistic character. They also added that during these difficult times no one listened to him except SpongeBob SquarePants, so the famous SpongeBob is the only one who is fully aware of what Squidward has been through, and that he “took care of Squidward more than you think”. The reason the show never addressed this issue is that it was “too dark” so Squidward is always sad and cranky because he wants his wife back in his life. Squidward had a love interest in an episode of Sponge Bob SquarePants: Squilvia, a woman who looks like him but with short black hair, long eyelashes and dark pink lips. Squidward and Squilvia met at the Krusty Krab, and SpongeBob SquarePants actually helped Squidward ask her out, and although by the end of the episode they were shown together, she didn’t see each other again. presented.

There is no truth to the “Squidward’s wife” theory that was once a hit on TikTok, and he never mentioned being married and Squilvia was just a date, although the their relationship status remains unknown. It is not all the “mysteries” or the strange things that are in Sponge Bob SquarePants needs an explanation, because it’s ultimately a cartoon, and it doesn’t always have to make sense. Squidward surely has other reasons to be bitter and cranky, but a lost love is certainly not one of them.
