Is "Squidward Tentacles" the dude who plays the clarinet? I went looking
for him on the websites you recommended.

Yes, he is. Depending on your need for accuracy, he is an ordinary
looking gray-colored squid, but his 'clarinet' does not have keys or
obvious tone holes. The instrument's exterior has a strong taper which
resembles a Far Eastern snake charmer's horn.

Also, Squidward's tentacles do not make direct contact with the tone
holes. Rather, they wave in the water a few inches away from the
instrument's body as he 'plays'. So the artwork is not completely


If I had Stadler's mouthpiece, would I play better? Or do I need his
ligature also? Or perhaps he and I are different persons? If I had
Mozart's pen, would I compose better?
