** "Pool Party Panic". A lot of fans preferred the human designs and found the characters of that universe much more interesting. It doesn't help that it

* AwesomeArt: There is probably more than one person who preferred the human character designs. Aside from them managing to avert falling in to the UncannyValley and all of them actually looking good if not better, their faces, shape, and personality are honest-to-god faithful to their fish counterparts and [[CastOfSnowflakes beautifully diverse]].

* CrazyAwesome: Milo.
* CriticalDissonance: The show has not been as well recieved by critics as [[WesternAnimation/PhineasAndFerb some]] [[WesternAnimation/GravityFalls other]] animated Disney shows, but this show still scores about 3 million viewers on average each new episode. Not to mention the pilot, "Bea Stays In the Picture", scored a huge ''4.8 million'', which is about more than most episodes of ''WesternAnimation/SpongebobSquarepants''.

* IdiotPlot: "Milo's Magical Shake", and is it ever. Long story short, Milo gets his 1,000th milkshake for free along with 999 shakes he bought previously, names it Emily, and cherishes the moment rather than drinks her. Milo doesn't even consider drinking Emily even when she starts to melt, and [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything his friends even hold an intervention!]]
** Let's be fair though, [[IdiotHero Milo]] was the main character of that one. Besides, there are many, ''many'' other episodes who have idiot plots:
** "Oscar is a Playa": Based on an asumption between Escargot and Oscar, and the truth doesn't come out until the episode is about to end.

** "Pool Party Panic"Panic" is a One ''Episode'' Wonder, featuring the entire show re-imagined with a human cast, a premise that turned out to be popular with the fans.



* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodPlot: both fans and haters of the show agree that if the show was focused less on school, and more on the [[WidgetSeries weirdness]], it wouldn't be such a indecisive crowd. Needless to say, episodes like "Fish Out of Water" or "Peopleing" are better received than episodes like "Queen Bea" or "Fish Floaters".

* ClicheStorm: Possibly half the reason the show is SoOkayItsAverage due to having plots that have been used before. These episodes usually take place in school. For example, you think we would've seen an episode about class pictures, passing a test, forgetting someone's anniversary before?

* CrazyAwesome: Milo

to:

* CrazyAwesome: MiloMilo.



* NightmareFuel:
** Clamantha's appearance is just kind of unsettling and her creepy obsession with Oscar just makes it worse.
** At the end of Two Clams In Love [[spoiler:we get to see the world from Clamantha's eyes.]] The result is . . . unsettling.
--> '''Clamantha''': So, do you wanna kiss now or what?
--> '''Oscar''': (Screams)
** The way how the fish are sometimes portrayed with human limbs and ''faces'' can be very disturbing.
** How about the flea that came off of Murphy? HORRIFYING!
** In "The Albert Glass Story," Bea tries to make friends with Albert by playing a violin for him. [[BrownNote She ends up playing so badly that]] [[http://images1.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20110221154606/fishhooks/images/1/1e/FFCTAGS27.jpg his face cracks and his organs float out, dragging his body with him.]]
** [[http://images4.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20110214022821/fishhooks/images/5/59/TDSOTF43.jpg The last shot of "The Dark Side of the Fish".]]
** In "Hooray for Hamsterwood", a hamster considered eating Bea... WHILE SHE WAS STILL ALIVE AND HYDRATED.
** The ending scene in the episode where Milo pretends he is sick. He gets sent to a tank that looks like a mass grave or hospice, with all the other sick fish tightly packed in with him. Then one guy offers him some food, and [[BodyHorror his face peels off, revealing the muscle behind it.]] Cut to black
** The Lincoln monster that hatches from the penny. Again, another ending scene. Noticing a trend?
** At one point, Mouse manages to get Snake to eat herself into oblivion. It's a bit disturbing.
** How about the establishing shot that shows the pet store is next door to a sushi restaurant?
** In one scene, Mouse got a pair of x-ray glasses and tries it out on Snake. [[DemBones As for]] [[CarnivoreConfusion what she]] [[FridgeHorror sees inside...]]
** The scene in one episode where Milo gets attacked by a big, orange and black spider rendered in the more realistic style that some of the non-aquatic characters and things use in the show.

** "Oscar is a Playa": Based on an asumption between Escargot and Oscar, and the truth doesn't come out until the episode is about to end.
** "Oscar's Secret Admirer": Oscar and Bea discover a note in the former's locker. It was put by Milo, by the way, since he didn't [[DidntThinkThisThrough thought that it could be confused for an actual love letter]].
** "Bea Dates Milo": Milo and Bea decide to fake date, and don't do the logical thing until the episode's near end.
** "Sixteen Clamandles": Nobody even ''questions'' about if Clamantha's birthday hat was real or a mistake. All they do is get the assumption that it really is her birthday.

* KarmaHoudini: Randy Pincherson in the Christmas Episode. He admits out loud that he was only doing the job for money, he treated kids like crap all day, and he even tried to quit before his job was done. Unfortunately, when Bea snapped and tried to get the Santa costume off of him, she got fired after Randy made it seem like it was her fault. He never gets his comeuppance.

* HeartwarmingInHindsight: The Latin American Spanish dub of Fish Hooks has the voices of the Milo, Bea, and Oscar singing the theme song. [[spoiler: The end of the series finale has the gang sing a variant of the theme song in celebration of their graduation, meaning that [[BookEnds the last lines the dub's voice actors recorded were likely the parts of the theme song they first sang]].]]
