Sikowitz is an acting and improvisation teacher at Hollywood Arts High School.


Sikowitz is considered an odd man since he has minor quirks. He enjoys drinking milk directly from coconuts, and he does various strange things to help teach his students acting concepts, but he is generally considered likable among the students.


Cat Valentine

(Unknown (Possibly 2008)-Present: Student; Friend)

Cat has been in Sikowitz's class for an unknown period of time. When Tori joined the school, it is shown Cat can get on Sikowitz's nerves at times, but Cat and Sikowitz remain friends. In #MommaGoomer, Sikowitz allows Cat to use his classroom so that Goomer can fool his mother into believing he's a high school teacher.

Sam Puckett

(2013–Present: Acquaintance)  

Sikowitz first met Sam in #MommaGoomer when she and Cat had to use his classroom. When they first met, Sam asks why Sikowitz is dressed like a clown and Sikowitz finds Sam pushy, but he still allows her to use his classroom.                                                                                     



Cat: Sikowitz!
Sikowitz: Cat, you're very late, class is almost over.
Sam: This is more important than class.
Sikowitz: More important than teaching young people how to act?

Sikowitz: What does this charity do?
Sam: It helps teachers grow hair.
Sikowitz: My classroom is yours.

Sam: We need to use this classroom.
Sikowitz: You strike me as pushy.
Cat: She can be pushy.
Sam: I can also be punchy and kicky.
