Sandy Cheeks is a squirrel and a scientist from above the water surface. She is one of the main characters in the SpongeBob SquarePants franchise and the only land animal to be part of the main cast. Sandy originates from Texas and has a southern drawl. She likely lives in Bikini Bottom to study aquatic life. Sandy wears an atmospheric diving suit so that she can breathe underwater. Sandy lives in a treedome, which is a bubble-like dome filled with air. It is the only underwater area where Sandy does not wear her diving suit.
Sandy's two best friends are SpongeBob and Patrick, who first meet Sandy in her debut episode, "Tea at the Treedome". One of Sandy's hobbies is karate, which she frequently practices with SpongeBob. Sandy is also a fan of rodeos, and she frequently practices bodybuilding. She is voiced by Carolyn Lawrence.
