Puff is a fictional character in the animated television series SpongeBob SquarePants and both films based on the franchise. Puff was created and designed by marine biologist and animator Stephen Hillenburg. He developed the character in response to a request from Nickelodeon that the show star a schoolteacher. Puff was introduced as his driving instructor rather than an elementary school educator. Puff is SpongeBob's paranoid driving teacher and the owner of the town boating school, which is similar to a driver's education facility. She would like nothing more than to pass SpongeBob, as he is her most dedicated and hard-working student, but he routinely panics when he tries to drive a boat and fails every driving test he takes.

Two decades ago, few could have guessed that an animated, talking aquatic sponge would be the central figure of one of the funniest, strangest, and most influential children's shows on television. The late Stephen Hillenburg unleashed his zany undersea world on us 20 years ago when SpongeBob SquarePants officially premiered on Nickelodeon on July 17, In the years since, the absorbent, yellow, porous creature has starred in movies, appeared on Broadway, and taken on a new life as countless internet memes. Yet unlike the majority of late '90s animated kids shows, Hillenberg's series has secured a permanent spot in our memories thanks to more than mere nostalgia. At the time that it premiered, nothing quite like the wacky, imaginative world of Bikini Bottom existed. A fascinating concoction of slapstick and surrealism, SpongeBob echoes the comedy and visual gags of silent film stars like Laurel and Hardy, Buster Keaton, and Charlie Chaplin; borrows the childlike eccentricity of Pee-wee Hermann; and sprinkles in some light social commentary here and there to keep both kids and adults engaged.
