Sandra "Sandy" Cheeks is a main character from SpongeBob SquarePants.
Sandy is an intelligent, scientific, anthropomorphic squirrel who resides in Bikini Bottom and features as a close friend of SpongeBob SquarePants. She is from Texas and it is for this reason that she is heard speaking in a Southern accent, and is proud of her home state which is frequently brought up throughout the course of the series. Sandy has been shown to possess a number of tough, tomboyish character traits and interests; she is skilled at karate and frequently enjoys practicing it with SpongeBob; she is also shown to be an excellent bodybuilder, is a rodeo champion, and possesses extraordinary scientific skills and can construct complex inventions. She must wear a deep sea dive suit when underwater with a helmet in order to breathe, and vice versa when SpongeBob, Patrick, or any other sea creatures visit her tree-dome. While Sandy is normally portrayed as kind, helpful, and understanding, she has been shown to possess a vindictive side too. In "Texas", she violently attacked SpongeBob and Patrick when they insulted her native land several times, while in "Band Geeks" she stuck Patrick up a trombone and later tried to do the same thing with a trumpet when he kicked her twice.
A professional scientist, Sandy resides in Bikini Bottom as part of a research project funded by three land-based chimpanzees, who make occasional appearances in the series.
Throughout the course of the show, Sandy's importance and appearances on the show have been very hit and miss, unlike Patrick, Squidward, Mr. Krabs & Plankton who frequently play big roles on the show. She tends to get the least attention paid to here out of all the seven main characters of the series, especially in the later episodes of the show. In the first movie, she only made a few cameo appearances, but ended up playing a larger role in the second movie.
