Fictional Characters Wiki

Sandra "Sandy" Jennifer[1] Cheeks is one of the main characters of SpongeBob SquarePants. She is a squirrel from Texas who is one of SpongeBob's close friends, voiced by Carolyn Lawrence.

Sandy is able to survive underwater with the help of her air-locked "Treedome" and her pressurized diving suit. She is notable for her Texan characteristics and knowledge of karate and science. She often misses home and wants to go back to Texas.


Sandy first meets SpongeBob in the second half of the show's first episode, "Tea at the Treedome". After he helps her fight off a clam, Sandy invites SpongeBob over for lunch at her house, though SpongeBob does not realize until after he has arrived that she lives in an airdome. However, flashbacks in The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge on the Run and the prequel series Kamp Koral: SpongeBob's Under Years appear to contradict this, instead showing Sandy having met SpongeBob and Patrick at the eponymous camp. The Kamp Koral episode "Template:I" explains this discrepancy by revealing that Sandy had her younger self sent to camp as a way of stopping Plankton from stealing the Krabby Patty formula at that point in time.


Sandy is a generally caring friend to SpongeBob, though she can be pretty competitive. She takes pride in her Texan heritage and does not like it when anyone speaks badly of her homeland.

Interests and skills

Sandy has many skills. She has a vast knowledge of science, with many of her spotlight episodes (especially after the first movie) focusing on her scientific exploits. She also enjoys karate and often battles SpongeBob for fun.
