Squiddly Diddly

Squiddly Diddly is an anthropomorphic animated squid created by Hanna-Barbera, who was featured in his own cartoon segment on The Atom Ant/Secret Squirrel Show beginning in 1965[1].



The round-headed, sailor-hatted Squiddly, more octopus than squid in appearance, lived in an aquatic park similar to SeaWorld known as Bubbleland. Diddly is an aspiring musician and makes many attempts to escape and attain musical stardom. He is constantly foiled by Bubbleland's administrator Chief Winchley. At the times when he did escape he would either go back to Bubbleland feeling the outside world too harsh. Also people would often be terrified as they mistakenly believe octopuses are hostile, but occasionally people would applaud Squiddly Diddly for his musical talents.

Some observers have commented that the name Squiddly Diddly was derived from the name of musician Bo Diddley.
