Splatoon: Squid Kids Comedy Show is a manga made by Hideki Goto, published in CoroCoro Comic and translated to English by VIZ Media.

It is based on Splatoon 2, featuring a pink male Inkling named Hit as the main character. He wears the Takoroka Visor, Takoroka Windcrusher, and Neon Delta Straps, and uses the Splattershot. He has the buzz cut hairstyle and dark blue eyes. A pink female Inkling named Maika appears alongside him, wearing the King Flip Mesh, White King Tank, and Mint Dakroniks, and uses the Splat Dualies. She sports the "haircut" hairstyle and has pink eyes. Both characters' appearances are based on the Inklings used in promotional screenshots for Splatoon 2.

The manga features four-panel gags, where Hit usually does something absurd in which Maika reacts and scolds him for it. Another Inkling called Kou appears later in the series. He sports the bowl cut hairstyle and uses the Undercover Brella.

A volume containing the first set of issues released in 27 December 2017 in Japan. The second volume was released in 28 November 2018 in Japan.

A new issue of the manga appeared in CoroCoro's separate August 2018 volume and focuses on the Octo Expansion, with Agent 8 appearing as a male Octoling with pink ink and orange eyes.
