-> '''Conroy''': It says here that "Fish Hooks is one of the most original, inventive animated series on television".
-> '''Doggy''': How can a show taking place in school be inventive? ''([[WesternAnimation/GravedaleHigh Lists]] [[WesternAnimation/HeroHigh long]] [[WesternAnimation/ShurikenSchool list]] [[WesternAnimation/GalaxyHigh of]] [[WesternAnimation/TheEmperorsNewSchool shows]] [[WesternAnimation/{{Daria}} oc]][[WesternAnimation/{{Doug}} curr]][[WesternAnimation/CloneHigh ing]] [[WesternAnimation/MuchaLucha in]] [[WesternAnimation/TheKidsFromRoom402 high]] [[WesternAnimation/TinyToonAdventures schools]])''

''Fish Hooks'' is a cartoon on DisneyChannel, created by Noah Z. Jones (whose other claim to fame is ''AlmostNakedAnimals'') and produced by Alex Hirsh (whose other claim to fame is ''GravityFalls'' also on Disney Channel). The show deals with three fish: Milo, his brother Oscar, and their "overly dramatic" friend Bea, as they attend school in an aquarium at a pet store. The series [[SliceOfLife chronicles their daily lives]] as they deal with various things, such as friendships, dating, and sports, as well as [[BlatantLies typical t(w)een issues]] such as giant lobster attacks and field trips to the hamster cages.

Started in 2010, after four years and three seasons, the series closed out on April 4th, 2014.

!!''FishHooks'' provides examples of:
%% ZeroContextExample entries are not allowed on wiki pages. All such entries have been commented out. Add context to the entries before uncommenting them.
* AbhorrentAdmirer: Clamantha to Oscar, Randy to Bea.
* {{Adorkable}}: The three main characters and Angela.
* ADayInTheLimeLight:
** "Chicks Dig Vampires" and "Glass Man Standing" focuses on Albert's relationship with Esmargot.
** "Jocktopizza" is told in Jocktopus's point of view, with barely any involvement from the main cast until the end.
* AdvertisedExtra: Piranhica, despite even appearing in promotional artwork, has had a grand total of ''seven'' lines through out season 1. One of them being a part of background noise.
* AllJustADream: [[spoiler: "Pool Party Panic". The second and third act surrounds around Milo trying to wake up, or at least prove to his friends that everything is a dream and that they're all fishes in real life.]]
* AlphaBitch: Pirahnica, Jocktopus's girlfriend.
** Clamanda, Clamantha's rival from the episode "We've Got Fish Spirit".
** LovableAlphaBitch: Shellsea, who is good friends with Milo, Bea, and Oscar.
* AmbiguousDisorder: Oscar. He's really smart, can't understand, or act, in some social interactions, and in one episode, he can't seem to understand jokes, or visual gags, so Milo has to teach to fake how to laugh.
* AmbiguouslyJewish: Bea ''Goldfishberg''. There's also Oscar's Jewfro.
** Bea is a more explicit example since she has parents who sport Jewfros.
* AndYouWereThere: Oscar hits his head and wakes up in a fantasy kingdom populated by fish that look like people he knows. He thinks it's all a dream, but Milo and Bea find him and tell him he was just moved to another fish tank. Turns out a lot of fish look alike.
* [[spoiler: AnguishedDeclarationOfLove: While Bea is giving her valedictorian speech, she realizes that she actually does love Oscar, and announces it to the whole school.]]
* AnimalsNotToScale: Keep in mind these guys are normal-sized fish that live in a pet store aquarium... and yet it seems like they have a whole town inside it.
* [[spoiler: Another Dimension: The main trio go through two of these as [[ItMakesSenseInContext they chase a walking fish tank]] in "Pool Party Panic". They also change as they go through them into:]]
** [[spoiler: AnthropomorphicFood: in the penultimate dimension before arriving at the titular pool party.]]
** [[spoiler: BouncingBattler: in the final dimension before the pool party. Only Milo is shown to use this method though.]]
* AntiHumor: Despite the show having [[PunnyName punny character names]] such as "Clamantha" and "Jocktopus," any reference to the fish-world equivalent of a real-world locale simply has the word "Fish" attached to it rather than a fish-related pun, such as "Fish Broadway" or "Fish Austin, Texas."
** An extreme use of this is "Fish Ancient Greece". Not "Ancient Fish Greece".
** Semi-justified as there are other species around the pet shop, a point brought up in "Hooray for Hamsterwood".
* AttackOfThe50FootWhatever:
** Milo in "Big Fish", complete with ShoutOut to [[Film/{{Ghostbusters}} Stay-Puff Marshmallow Man]].
** Bea and Milo's science experiment in "Fuddy Duddy Study Buddy".
* BerserkButton: If you happen to be a {{Jerkass}}, don't even touch Bea. [[CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass Oscar will be very pissed.]]
* BigfootSasquatchandYeti: [[CaptainObvious The Yeti Lobster]].
* BigBeautifulWoman: Shellsea's human version in Party Pool Panic.
* ButtMonkey: Oscar, Albert Glass, and Mr. Baldwin.
* CasanovaWannabe: Randy Pincherson, though he [[SingleTargetSexuality only targets Bea]].
%%* CatchPhrase: Details, details, doodley doo!
%%** JOCKTOPUUUUUUS!
%%** HOT DOG!!
%%** I'M RANDY PINCHERSON!!!
%%** MILO: WELL BLANK MY BLANK!!
* TheCastShowoff: ''Fish School Musical'' has Chelsea Kane show off her singing voice.
* CatsAreMean: The orange cat in the pet shop.
** Ms. Lips cat, Attila
* ChekhovsGun: In "Dollars and Fish", Milo gets a loan from Randy Pincherson and spends it on a ''diamond-encrusted'' motorcycle. After getting his pay from a job, he realizes that his job alone won't get him the money he needs sooner when Milo's boss points out said motorcycle.
** The bottle of glue Milo has in "Bea's Commercial" is also this, since [[MakesSenseInContext Bea uses it so she won't fall off from her scorpion for the commercial.]]
* ChristmasEpisode: "Merry Fishmas, Milo"
* ContinuityNod:
** In "Fail Fish", Kevin brings up two events that happened in "Doggonit!" and "Fish Out of Water".
** During "Riding in Cars with Fish", Oscar comes across a wanted poster of Milo, which referenced events that went down in "Pamela Hamster Returns".
* CouchGag: Each episode opens with an exterior shot of the pet shop with a sign that says "Bud's Pets And [Insert Plot Relevant Service or Product Here]".
%%* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: Clamantha
%%** The school counselor Ms. Lips.
* CowboyEpisode: Cattlefish, Ho!.
* CreatorCameo: Bud, the photorealistic pet shop owner, is modeled after storyboard artist Sherm Cohen.
** The toy "Tickle-Me Carl" is also based off of [[Series/{{Chowder}} C.H. Greenblatt]], one of the directors/writers/storyboard artists of the show.
** Noah Z. Jones plays Bea's father, and Maxwell Atoms plays Razor and Bo Gregory.
* CreditsGag: The Snake and Mouse's commentary.
* CuteLittleFangs: The Snake.
** [[spoiler: She still has them as a human at the end of Pool Party Panic, though It's not that notable]]
* DescriptionCut: One in the first episode.
--> '''Oscar''': Uh oh, she's losing it again, Milo.
--> '''Milo''': Is she bro, is she?
--> (Cue [[http://images2.wikia.nocookie.net/fishhooks/images/3/38/Fish_Hooks_Bea_starts_panicking.PNG this]])
--> '''Oscar''': Yes!
* DisguisedInDrag: Milo and Oscar dress as girls to get into Bea's all-girl slumber party. No one was fooled.
** Except Clamantha.
* DistaffCounterpart: Shiloh to Milo.
* DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything: Milo and Bea's reaction to Oscar's blogging, and in the same episode, Oscar's attempt at flushing himself down a toilet.
--> '''Bea''': Listen to me, whatever is troubling you, you'll make it through.
* DontExplainTheJoke: "I'm a claaaam!"
* DrugsAreBad: "Big Fish" can be viewed as a "don't do steroids" episode.
* DubNameChange: Justified, as most of the fishes have punny names. The Latin American Spanish dub of "Pool Party Panic" even has the characters using the "normal" version of names. (Ex. Shellsea --> Ostrencia --> Hortencia; Clamantha --> Almejandra --> Alejandra, etc.)
* DumbMuscle: Jocktopus. In "Happy Birthfish, Jocktopus" he doesn't even know what money is.
* EveryoneCanSeeIt: Near the beginning of "Pool Party Panic", human!Milo mentions how obvious Oscar's crush on Bea was in his dream. [[HypocriticalHumor Human!Bea calls her fish self stupid as human!Oscar is beside her, distressed.]]
* FamilyUnfriendlyViolence: For a show on the DisneyChannel, this show uses [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar an incredible amount of violence]], ranging from characters being eaten onscreen to a scene where [[SlapstickKnowsNoGender Clamantha is thrown out the window]] [[WouldHitAGirl by Jocktopus]] [[CrossesTheLineTwice where a car runs her over]], to a scene at the end of "Dropsy!" where a sick fish's face ''[[{{Squick}} peels off]]'' and the muscle can be seen in detail.
* FatAndSkinny:
** Milo and Oscar, respectively. [[WhatCouldHaveBeen It was originally supposed to be vice-versa.]]
** Albert and Jumbo.
** Bea and Shellsea.
* FeatherFingers: The entire cast. Oddly, they change from normal fins to "hand" fins when needed.
** TailfinWalking: The entire cast, again. Oddly, their tailfins are designed nothing like those of real fish or legs and feet.
* FeudEpisode: Fish Talent Show. An incident involving Clamantha's face and Shellsea's foot causes causes them to fight. At one point, the whole school gets involved.
%%* FieryRedhead: Bea
* ForgottenChildhoodFriend: Kevin. PlayedForLaughs since he's a one-time character, and [[DefiedTrope defied]] since he didn't show any clear signs of hating them.
* FreezeFrameBonus: Minor example, but near the end of the theme song, one of the pictures that flash for a few frames depicts [[ShipTease Bea holding a blushing Oscar's hand while doing the peace sign]].
** In one episode, Milo, Oscar and Jumbo are reading "Nintankdo Power".
* FunWithFlushing: Swimming in a flushing toilet is an extreme sport.
%%* GamerChick: Angela.
%%* GenkiGirl: Bea.
%%* GentleGiant: Koi
* GilliganCut: It's had a couple, including one in the very first episode.
* GraduateFromTheStory: Not surprisingly, the final episode is about the fish graduating high school.
* GrossOutShow: Surprisingly gross for a Disney show.
* HalloweenEpisode: One where the fish trick-or-treat outside their fish tanks.
* HeterosexualLifePartners: Mr. Mussels and Coach Salmons.
* HighSchoolDance: "Fish Prom", among others.
* HoldYourHippogriffs: "Ladies and gentlefish" is but one example.
* [[spoiler: HulkingOut: Jumbo Shrimp in "Unresolved Fishues".]]
%%* HugeSchoolgirl: Koi
* InterspeciesRomance:
** The brief romance between Pamela Hamster, [[CaptainObvious a hamster]], and Milo, a fish.
** The one-sided romance between Clamantha and Oscar counts, since clams technically aren't fish.
** Also the one-sided romance between Randy, a crab, and Bea, a fish.
** Mr. Baldwin, the pregnant seahorse teacher mentioned previously, is revealed to have a "mega crush" on Ms. Lips, a squid. For a long time, he is too scared to approach her until his secret gets out. Later, they started dating officially.
** Albert Glass, a glass fish, and Esmargot, a snail, are dating.
** Koi (don't need to say anything here) starts a relationship with another boy in school, who is of a different species of fish.
** Finberly had a failed phone-romance with a ferret named Cody, and is distressed about being dumped for several episodes.
** Piranhica, an piranha, and Jocktopus, an octopus. Several episodes revolve around them having relationship issues .
* {{It Is Pronounced Tro-PAY}}: Everyone except Oscar keeps pronouncing Angela's name wrong, despite her correcting them every time. It's pronounced "Angel-ah".
* IronicEcho: In "Principal Bea".
-->[[DramaQueen Bea]]: That's it! How is this school supposed to function without some form of authority? If I don't get the perfect education, I won't go the perfect college, and I won't meet the perfect guy, and I won't have the perfect life AND NO ONE IS GOING TO BE HAPPY IF THAT HAPPENS!
-->[[spoiler: [[MachineMonotone Fishington]]: If you were to step down as principal, my secret would be exposed. This school would be in chaos! And no one is going to be happy if that happens.]]
%%* {{Jerkass}}: Randy Pincherson
* JerkJock: "JOCKTOPUS WILL BE PUNCHING YOU NOW!"
* JerkWithAHeartOfJerk: At the end of "Fish School Musical", after showing some HiddenDepths, Jocktopus goes right back to bullying.
* 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.
* LargeHam:
** Bea
** GeorgeTakei's [[OneSceneWonder bird]]
** Jocktopus
** Mr. Mussels. He is a drama teacher, after all.
* LineOfSightName: How Oscar came up with Doris Flores Gorgeous, by altering the words "door" and "floor" and adding an adjective that was also an attractive character trait.
* MeaningfulName:
** An [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oscar_(fish) oscar]] is a popular species of aquarium fish.
** Bo Gregory is a pun on the Beaugregory fish
* MediumBlending: Most of the fish are drawn in regular cartoon-y style, but their setting and anything outside the tanks are portrayed in a photorealistic style.
* MilestoneCelebration: With "Camp Camp", the series officially reaches 100 episodes.
* MisterSeahorse: A literal example with one of their teachers, Mr. Baldwin. Lampshaded, even. And he apparently has the LongestPregnancyEver, which got a brief lampshade during "Koi Story". [[spoiler:The births happen in "Labor of Love".]]
* MixandMatchCritters: The monster Oscar plays in "Hare and Back Again" has the head of a lion, the body of a spider and snakes for legs.
* MouseWorld: The characters are fish-sized and reside in an aquarium.
* NiceJobBreakingItHero: In "Mascotastrophe", Milo reveals the fact that he and Oscar are [[TotemPoleTrench both]] the school mascot. Because of this, the geckos use this to their advantage and kidnap Oscar so the fishes' basketball team would lose.
* NoCartoonFish: Inverted; the fish cast are cartoony, but the rest of the world is photorealistic.
* NonMammalianHair: A lot of fish have hair, like Oscar's afro or Clamantha's ponytail, but others either end up having their dorsal fins act like hair, like Milo and Shellsea, or none at all.
* NonMammalMammaries:
** On many occasions, some fish have been shown to have nipples. A small number female characters have breasts.
** In one episode, Oscar disguised himself as an adult woman and even included fake breasts in the mix.
* NoodleIncident: A handful of them come up in "Fail Fish". How did a can of non-stick spray nearly kill Milo, Oscar, Bea, and apparently Albert Glass?
** How did the gang end up in a tank full of jellyfish?
** What happened while the gang decided to go for a swim in the pet shop's toilet?
** What happened in 1986 that caused Mr. Baldwin to never laugh or go out on a Friday night ever again? And while we're at it, how did he get [[MisterSeahorse knocked up]]?
* NoSympathy: In "Science Fair Detective Mystery" Oscar wins the science fair, but gets his ribbon taken away when his project is stolen ''even though he already won''.
* NotSoDifferent: When the gang finds out that [[AbhorrentAdmirer Clamantha]] has a StalkerShrine of Oscar, he isn't as creeped out as his friends because Oscar has a similar shrine of Bea in his locker.
* NotWhatItLooksLike: Subverted when Clamantha is caught making out with [[MakesSenseInContext Oscar's laptop]].
* OfficialCouple:
** Jocktopus and Piranhica
** Milo and Pamela Hamster in "Hooray for Hamsterwood". [[spoiler: They broke up sometime before "Bea Dates Milo", though.]]
** Albert and Esmargot as of "Chicks Dig Vampires"
** Mr. Baldwin and Ms. Lips as of "Fish Lips Sink Ships".
** [[spoiler: Oscar and Bea in the series finale.]]

* PerkyGoth: Oscar, when he was one.
* PopStarComposer: Former {{Jellyfish}} frontman Andy Sturmer scores some of the episodes.
%%* ProudToBeAGeek: Angela.
* PunnyName: Quite a few. For example, Clamantha (guess what she is), Jocktopus, Finberley, Shellsea, Piranhica and several others, with possibly more to come.
* RecurringExtra: At the end credits, there is a snake and a mouse who usually give commentary on what's happened in the last episode (or the episode it was paired with, it depends on which one Disney Channel aired). The snake wants to join the fish in their tanks, while the mouse is all right with being in a small terrarium with the snake.
* ReptilesAreAbhorrent: The geckos are heartless jerkasses that enjoy seeing a fish suffocate without water. Only the snake is an exception to the general abhorrence.
%%* RichBastard: Randy Pincherson.
* SatelliteCharacter: All of Angela's appearances revolve around her being Oscar's girlfriend.
** [[spoiler: Her season 3 appearences revolve around her being Jumbo's girlfriend.]]
* SantaClaus: Or in this show's case, Fish Santa Claus.
* SeriesContinuityError: ''Run, Oscar, Run'', an episode that deals with the possibility of Oscar ruining his perfect attendance record, contradicts a major plot point in ''The Tale of Sir Oscar Fish'', Oscar being tanks away during school.
* ShoutOut:
** To ''VideoGame/DonkeyKong'' and ''Franchise/SuperMarioBros''; one episode has Oscar liken himself to a plumber, Bea to a princess, and their dilemma to a gorilla in a tank top throwing barrels at them.
** "Hooray for Hamsterwood" has Milo saying that Pamela Hamster is the finest hamster actress of their generation, immediately followed by Pamela (on the TV show) saying, "Science class is [[Series/SonnyWithAChance so random]]!"
** During "Two Clams in Love", Oscar accidentally paints himself blue while trying to run away from Clamantha; the next shot we see depicts Clamantha chasing Oscar in a VideoGame/PacMan-like fashion. She even stops to eat a cherry.
** "Pamela Hamster Returns" mentions [[Film/HighSchoolMusical Hamster School Musical]] and [[Series/WizardsOfWaverlyPlace Hamsters of Hamsterly Place]].
** "Just One of The Fish" has Oscar making the "OhCrap" face.
** "Adventures in Fish Sitting" has Ms. Lips' cat escaping the house when Bea was asked to look after him. So she disguises Milo as the cat. Following are three Garfield references.
--> '''Ms. Lips'''': Haha! You can talk now!
--> '''Milo''': Uhh, yeah. Hey, can you make me some lasagna?
** Also, in one episode, there was a brief homage/reference to ''Series/MightyMorphinPowerRangers''.
** The ep "Pool Party Panic" could be a reference to [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyEquestriaGirls Equestria Girls]]
** One episode had Milo call Oscar "[[VideoGame/PaperMarioStickerStar Sticker Star]]".
* SignificantGreenEyedRedhead: Bea is shown to have green eyes in "Oscar is a Playa".
* SlapstickKnowsNoGender: During a gaming session in "Two Clams in Love", Oscar told Milo to hit the B button on his controller. Instead, he [[IncrediblyLamePun hit Bea]].
** There was a string of episodes where Clamantha fell victim to this.
** Finberley, especially during the second season.
* SomebodyDoesntLoveRaymond: "Fishing for Compliments: The Albert Glass Story"
* SpeciesSurname: Milo the Fish and Oscar the Fish.
* SpellMyNameWithAnS: Is it spelled "Pir''anh''ica" or "Pir''ahn''ica"? It's been spelled both ways on title cards.
* StalkerWithACrush: Clamantha
-->'''Clamantha''': Love the new 'do, Oscar!
-->'''Oscar''': It's not a new 'do. Combs just stick to me and never let go.
-->'''Clamantha''': I'll be your comb...
* StealthPun: The main hamster actress for [[ShowWithInAShow Secret Teen]] [[Series/SabrinaTheTeenageWitch Witch Hamster]] is played by a girl named [[Film/TheCheetahGirls Sabrina]].
* StepfordSmiler: Miss Lips is Type A. In a few occasions, we see her suddenly frowning or secretly bawling.
* SuicideAsComedy / InterruptedSuicide: See the DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything entry above.
* TakeThat: The Hamster Channel can be seen as a parody of the [[BitingTheHandHumor kidcoms of]] Creator/DisneyChannel. Right down to the laugh track.
%%* [[WorldOfHam Tanks Of Ham]]
* TemporaryLoveInterest: Played UpToEleven with Bea's boyfriends in "Doris Flores Gorgeous". She wasn't replacing her boyfriends rapidly because she's [[ReallyGetsAround promiscuous]], but rather because she thinks that's what high school girls are supposed to do.
** Also, [[spoiler: Angela to Oscar.]]
* ThereAreNoAdults: Milo and Oscar were explicitly said to have had no parents in Season 3, but an "Aunt Ida" is mentioned during Season 1. Only a handful of the cast have had at least one adult relative shown.
* ThirdOptionLoveInterest: Angela, to Oscar.
%%* ThirdPersonPerson: Jocktopus
* ThoseTwoGuys:
** Albert Glass and Jumbo Shrimp, also Milo and Oscar from the show's perspective.
** Shelsea and Clamantha are a gender-inverted version.
* TrademarkFavoriteFood: Milo sure does love his apples.
* TrailersAlwaysSpoil:
** A promo for the special episode, "We've Got Fish Spirit", already spoils a good chunk of the episode: [[spoiler:Bea being able to compete in the cheer off.]]
** The promos for "Just One of The Fish" implied that [[spoiler: Bea would end up competing on the football team and that she was a completely different person from a student that had a strong resemblance to her.]]
** The promos for "Principal Bea" spoiled [[spoiler:Nurse Fishington's RoboticReveal]].
** "Fish Prom" promos didn't explicitly show it, but viewers could easily tell that [[spoiler: Angela and Oscar get in a fight and Bea ends up dancing with Oscar]].
** Before the last act of "Labor of Love", Disney showed a promo for the next episode about [[spoiler: Baldwin having his class take care of his newborn babies]], and that was before [[spoiler: Mr. Baldwin gave birth to them]]. So much for continuity.
%%* ValleyGirl: Shellsea
* VerbalTic: Shellsea
-->'''Shellsea:''' ''Giiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiirlllllllllll.''
* WhatTheHellHero: [[spoiler:Bea and Oscar to Milo in the middle of Dollars and fish.]]
* WidgetSeries: You'd be surprised how amazingly weird this series actually is.
%% * WomanScorned
* WorthlessYellowRocks: Jocktopus is given money on his birthday and thinks it's just worthless paper. His girlfriend Piranhica knows what money is, but intentionally keeps him in the dark so she can keep it for herself.
* WouldHitAGirl: Jocktopus.
** He actually ''tosses Clamantha'' out a window (and onto a car) during "Fish Floaters".
** And was about to beat up Bea in one episode until Oscar stopped him.
* {{Yandere}}: In the episode "Fishing for Compliments: The Albert Glass Story", Bea becomes obsessed with Albert Glass because he doesn't like him.
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: Milo's fins look like it.
** He actually has blue hair as a human in "Pool Party Panic".
* YouMeanXMas: Fishmas, of course.
