Squid Wood is the second segment of the 19th episode of the fourth season of SpongeBob SquarePants.

Synopsis

When SpongeBob is told by Squidward that he'll never play with him, he gets the idea to make a miniature puppet of Squidward called Mini Squid that ends up getting more praise from the Krusty Krab patrons much to the annoyance of Squidward himself.

Why You Woodn't Want To Play with This Episode (Pun Intended)

  1. It's just another episode that is only made to make Squidward a miserable person. This time it's because of Squidward refusing to play with SpongeBob.
  2. The first minute of the episode is just SpongeBob repeatedly showing up in Squidward's house and asking if he wants to play with him.
  3. There's a very disturbing scene where SpongeBob is watching Squidward while he's taking a bath... while he's NAKED!
    • There is also some twerking here and there, which is inappropriated for the kids.
  4. Mini Squid's voice can be considered annoying depending on your view.
  5. Everyone is incredibly stupid in this episode as they believe that Mini Squid is real, even though it's obvious that he's just a puppet that is being held by SpongeBob.
  6. Squidward is unfairly treated by the Krusty Krab patrons in a number of ways:
    • First, When Squidward tells a couple of jokes to some customers they give him dirty looks because of his mood, but when Mini Squid tells them the same jokes, they laugh.
    • Next, a customer criticizes Squidward's attitude for asking him what would he like to order, but the same customer praises Mini Squid for asking the same question leading to Mini Squid taking over as the cashier and Mr. Krabs demoting the real Squidward into a dishwasher.
    • Then, Squidward is also mocked for having "no talent" and told to get "size reduction surgery" by some customers after replicating Mini Squid's dance moves.
    • And finally, a producer lends Mini Squid a million dollars and the chance to become a star while ignoring the real Squidward.
  7. Bad Ending: Despite slandering his chance at fame and fortune, Squidward is relieved that Mini Squid is gone, only for SpongeBob to show up with a miniature version of SpongeBob, which is nothing more than the episode delivering a final blow on Squidward after all that.
  8. Wasted Potential: The idea of SpongeBob creating a Squidward puppet was a good idea could have utilized some clever gags, but instead, it's nothing more than Squidward being neglected for 11 minutes.
  9. Overall, it’s a terrible way to end a good season in airing order.

Redeeming Qualities

  1. We don't get to see Mini Squid or the Mini SpongeBob ever again.
  2. Two of Squidward's lines, "It's called: I will never... play with you... EVER!!!!" and "He stole my jokes... he stole my job... HE STOLE MY STANDING OVATION!" are still funny.
  3. Squidward trying to destroy Mini Squid is the best part of the episode, although it still doesn't kick this episode out of the "Squidward Torture Episodes" category.
  4. The title has a clever pun.
