Handsome Squidward / Squidward Falling refers to a clip from SpongeBob SquarePants in which Squidward Tentacles, made unnaturally handsome, dramatically falls down, returning him to his original look. The clip is commonly used by YouTubers in remixes that replace the music in the scene.


Handsome Squidward originated from the Spongebob Squarepants episode The Two Faces of Squidward which aired on November 23rd, 2007. In the scene Squidward blames Spongebob for making him too handsome after hitting in the face with a door. As the mob outside becomes unruly, Spongebob starts to freak out. Suddenly, a shoe that had fallen of the foot of a an unknown bystander who was given the ability to fly when he saw Handsome Squidward, breaks through the ceiling. Spongebob pushes Squidward out of its path sending him spiraling into a column.

The earliest known instance of the clip being remixes was posted in November of 2008 by SilverWingedBandit,[1] who uploaded a loop of the sequence synced to the Mega Man 7 Intro Stage Theme.


The clip has been used numerous times in remixes that employ various music to score the clip. For example, on April 11th, 2011, YouTuber A Nonymous posted the clip set to "My Heart Will Go On," gaining over 482,000 views (shown below, left). On March, 27th, 2018, user Boris Huang posted a remix that gained over 410,000 views (shown below, right).

The design of Handsome Squidward has appeared in fan art and parody redraws for over a decade (examples shown below).
