Bethany Garrett (née Bates), more commonly known as Sqaishey Quack, Sqaishey Duck or simply Sqaishey, is a British YouTuber and Video Game Commentator. She usually uploads Minecraft videos, but also other popular games such as Club Penguin and Roblox. She has two personal channels (namesake Sqaishey Quack and Sqaishey Extra) which have a combined total of 1 million subscribers and 330 million views.
She is a Helper in Stampy's Lovely World, and has also appeared in Sky Den, Cave Den, Ocean Den and Space Den, as well as being credited for helping Stampy in his recent Stampy Shorts. Stampy in turn is also a helper in Sqaishey's own flagship series, Feather Adventures, and is her partner in Super Happy Fun Time, Twins and A Duck & A Cat.
Sqaishey was born as Bethany Jayne Bates on November 18, 1996 (age 23), in the West Midlands (around Wolverhampton, Dudley), England. She is married to fellow gamer and YouTuber, Joseph Garrett.
Due to the limited skins on offer in the Xbox edition of Minecraft, Sqaishey's skin consists of a chicken in a tuxedo. She wears gold armour to make herself more like her PC skin. Sqaishey's PC skin more closely resembles her artwork and is more commonly matched to her.
In real life, Sqaishey has short brown hair with a golden streak running through it. The colour of her eyes is hard to tell, as at times they can appear to be either blue, green or brown, although they seem green in most pictures, especially close-up.
Association with Stampy
Stampy was Sqaishey's 11th subscriber back when she started YouTube. She admired his videos and created a map for him to play through. Stampy thought she was an amazing commentator, and they started to become friends. They soon started making videos together in the Sky Den series before appearing as a helper in Stampy's Lovely World. She later reappeared in the Lovely World through its spin-off series, Stampy's Funland.
Later on, she became Stampy's companion in a series of videos and vlogs, including Cave Den and Ocean Den. She also has been involved in Stampy Short videos, in which she was credited for in-game acting and extra help.
On Sqaishey's channel, Stampy and Sqaishey had a series together called Super Happy Fun Time, which takes place on her realm. This was later followed by Twins and later, A Cat & A Duck. Stampy also appears in Sqaishey's main series, Feather Adventures, as a helper.
Stampy's Lovely World
She was the second helper after Crimson Azoth to speak in a Lovely World video, and can be found in this video. Stampy added her to his Love Garden in Beat The Heat. Although her Minecraft character has not appeared after the three current helpers were introduced, she now appears as an assistant to Stampy behind-the-scenes, as seen in a deleted but reuploaded (by another user) video, where she controlled Polly Reindeer.
In real life, Sqaishey is in a relationship with Stampy, and on 29th July 2018, they announced that they are finally engaged. They eventually got married the following year. They own a house together.
She and Stampy own five pets; a cat named Ori, dogs named Alyx and Mei, and birds named Aloy and Cortana. They used to own a fish named Kitten and a hamster named Sparky, whom both died.
Sqaishey has a YouTube channel of her own, with a rapidly growing subscriber count at the time of her peak popularity. She currently has 1 million subscribers that she achieved on 15th September 2020. She openly takes inspiration from Stampy and often asks him for advice.
In her most popular series, entitled 'Feather Adventures', she has a shoutout area named the "Feather Friends Pond" which houses many signs with people's names in them. At the beginning of every new episode, she adds someone new to the pond to say thank you to them differently. This is incredibly similar to the Love Garden in the Lovely World series.
Notable series of hers include:
- Feather Adventures
- Server Surfing
- Club Penguin Island
- Slime Rancher
- Kirby & the Rainbow Paintbrush
- Cloud Nest
- Super Happy Fun Time
- Club Penguin
- Cake Quest
- Stampy's Sky Island Challenge
- A Cat & A Duck
- Minecraft Bedrock
- A World for Me
Outside her Sqaishey persona, Bates was the lead vocalist of Karma Kiss, a Rock-and-roll band formed in May 2017. The band had performed two gigs both in Southampton and had released their first single, "Lightning Never Strikes Twice", on 23rd May 2019. The band seems to be disbanded as their YouTube channel has been deleted.
She currently normally appears with Stampy in Space Den, but since the episode Wiggly Worm, she now appears in most episodes of Stampy's Lovely World as a helper. However, her character has rarely been seen on newer videos as the new set of Minecraft Helpers were introduced, but she is still currently active in the series as Stampy's assistant behind-the-scenes. She also appears in the majority of the vlogs on the MagicAnimalClub channel.
