Still Bold and Brash: A Squidward Art Retrospective πŸŽ¨πŸ™ | SpongeBob SquarePants


Today we celebrate every piece
of Squidward art. Let us begin with Bold and Brash. A sunset golden aura surrounding
a naked and abstract Squid. It is quite intoxicating,
if you ask me. Upon his recruitment at
the Bikini Bottom Adult Learning Center, Squidward’s creativity was never higher. He saw an opportunity to put
his vision of full display. Bring me your huddled masses
of bored housewives, and I will shape them in my image. Out of this moment came a masterpiece. As its title suggests, Bold and Brash represents Tentacle’s
drive to take risks, and tackle new challenges. At the end of his journey, he will emerge a newly formed
and complete squid, unrecognizable to his
colleagues and rivals alike. Ah yes, Squid vs. Sea Bear. Inspired by a traumatic camping incident
involving said bear. [growling] Squidward, are you OK? No. This piece is a re-telling of that tale, where our hero emerges triumphant. Until next time, you foul beast. [growling] Ah, Squidward En Repose. That’s French for “Squidward Resting”. An avant-garde or experimental
piece, if you will. I, uh, don’t think that will fit in
with the other pieces in my collection. – Why not?
– Because it’s an art collection. [laughing] And of course, where would Squidward be
without his collection of self-portraits? 492 classics each capturing
a rather unique emotion. [screaming] This colossal collection varies
from real to surreal. A truly overwhelming tour de force. Ah, the Sad Squid. A tragic piece for our tragic hero. Squidward’s hopes and dreams
died long ago, after spending years working behind
the counter of a fast food restaurant. Here, please hit me as hard as you can. Now he lives in a house
of unrecognized talent, he truly puts the ‘art’ in martyr. Simply tragic. What a baby. The Distorted Squid, while of course this looks
nothing like Squidward, it is the idea, no? The piece represents the society
that our hero inhabits. You see, everybody is an idiot,
except Squidward. Well, it’s true. His fellow Bikini Bottomites have painted
a false perception of Squidward, which can be seen here. Again, simply tragic. [crying] Ah of course, here we have
the Handsome Squidward portrait. Also known as “A Naive Cephalopod”. We all remember the story. [screaming] Sometimes beauty can become the beast. And no one knows this tale
better than Squidward. Finally, we have oppression,
Squidward’s masterpiece. In order to compete with
the infamous Sea Chicken Shack, Mr. Krabs needed an artist to constuct a grand statue
of his likeness. The artist needed vision and talent, but who did Krabs choose?
Well, I think you already know. What’s that supposed to be? This is a masterpiece. I don’t have a mouth in my stomach. It represents the gaping,
mashing mall of consumerism. And the endless cavern it creates
within us all. I call it Oppression. Well said, Mr. Tentacles, well said. They say that art is meant
to generate emotional reactions, but they never specify with emotion. [blabbering] The art of Squidward has made
his fellow Bottomites laugh, cry, and occasionally
burst into flames. My eyes! [screaming] The pain! No, Squidward’s paintings
were never a commercial success. Nobody would take them,
so I had to eat them! That is not what drives his vision. He strives to express a sense of
beauty and emotion in his art. And for Squidward, that is enough. Perhaps several centuries from now, the incomparable Squidward will
finally get the recognition he deserves. Someday, there will be a wing
with my name on it, in all the museums of the world! Dude, you’re teaching art at
the Rec Center, calm down. Uncultured trash urchin. That is all we have time for today. Tune in next time for more culture,
and as always, be bold, be brash, be Squidward. Let me just say, there will come a day when
I will make something of my life, and I will never have to set foot
in this grease trap again! Yeah, we’ll see you after
your lunch break, Squidward. OK.
