Other denizens include Hawthorne, an easily-angered hermit crab who wears a beer can, and Ernest, a bespectacled teenage fish who is also a computer geek. Up on shore, there's a polar bear named Thornton who hibernates down on the beach. They are ruled over by a deific Moai statue named Kahuna, who occasionally transforms the characters into other things.

Added DiffLines:

Unusually for a comic strip, Toomey (with the exception of most Sunday strips) eschews the typical gag-a-day format and prefers longer story-arcs that last at least a week.

* MisplacedWildlife: Thornton the polar bear, oh so very much. Freshwater animals often pop up in the lagoon, and the characters sometimes swim in freshwater.

* WeirdnessMagnet: The entire lagoon; it's been attacked by swarms of obscure sea-life, a JamesBond villain once tried to blow it up, not to mention that the Loch Ness Monster has used it as a vacation site once or twice. At one point, Filmore, in the face of another attack, asks what drives most of these things to "head their way."
