Squiddly (voice of Paul Frees) wore a white sailor's hat and walked on four legs (two of his legs protruded from the sleeves of a pull over shirt that he wore). Besides being multi-legged, Squiddly had multi-talents and hoped to break into show business. On the title page of the episode "Show Biz Squid," Squiddly is seen playing the saxophone, guitar and bongos.

Squiddly lived and performed in a aquatic theme park called Bubbleland where he often just sat in a water tank. He once lamented "Oh boy what a boring life! All I do is sit here while visitors gawk at me. What I need is a nice long vacation. I want to see something else besides visitors."

But Squiddly's dreams of seeking adventure in the outside world were thwarted by the park's owner Chief Winchley (voice of John Stephenson) who always found Squiddly and returned him to Bubbleland.
