Sandy the squirrel is, without a doubt, Bikini Bottom’s most intelligent, accomplished, and talented resident. Out of all the characters on the show from creator Stephen Hillenburg, Sandy is second to none when it comes to ability and know-how.
Voiced by Carolyn Lawrence, this spunky forest creature adds a voice of reason and a reminder of the surface world.
With more jobs than anyone on the seafloor and just as many hobbies, there’s no end to the things to learn about SpongeBob and Patrick’s best friend. (No, not Squidward Tentacles. Her name is in the title of this article… come on, guys.)
We’ll explain her age, birthday, and more, so keep reading!
Sandy the Squirrel Scientist: Age and More
Sandy Cheeks lives on the bottom of the Pacific Ocean in Bikini Bottom; she can survive thanks to her cutting-edge tree dome. When we first meet her, she’s a simple scientist out to perform experiments and collect data.
Sandy gets more complicated, varied, and interesting as the SpongeBob series progresses.
How Old Is Sandy Cheeks?
If you read our article on How Old Is Spongebob or the similar one on Patrick, you’ll understand the challenges of nailing down an exact age for some cartoon characters. Luckily, as we did with Patrick, we can use SpongeBob’s driver’s license to estimate Sandy’s actual age.
We estimated SpongeBob to be around 36 years old. With Sandy’s personality and accomplishments, this seems reasonable for her. Assuming that she is close in age to SpongeBob and Patrick, Sandy Cheeks is 36 years old. Or thereabouts, anyway.
According to the SpongeBob SquarePants Annual from 2014, this Texan tree squirrel was born November 17. No year is given.
Sandy and Her 1000 Talents
We can’t talk about sandy without mentioning her unnaturally massive collection of skills. Obviously, she’s a scientist and karate master, but did you know that she’s also a singer, guitar player, mathematician, chef, inventor, and officer of the law?
Gal Pals! Update for Older Gen Z and Millennials
If you haven’t kept up with SpongeBob SquarePants since starting 7th grade, that’s understandable.
You might be surprised to find out that Sandy Cheeks, Krabby Patty heiress Pearl Krabs, Mrs. Puff of boating school fame, and Karen Plankton are all very good friends. So good, in fact, they officially go by The Gal Pals and have been the focus of two full episodes of the main series so far.
These vibrant ladies drink cocoa and pull pranks as a way to escape from their stressful day-to-day lives. I’m not joking.
