Trivia / Freddi Fish

  • The Danza: Jason, a Putt-Putt Expy from The Case of the Missing Kelp Seeds, is voiced by Jason Ellefson, Putt-Putt's voice actor at the time.
  • Keep Circulating the Tapes: Want the UK dub of the fifth game? Good luck — only fifty copies of it are known to exist. The German version is less severe, but is still incredibly rare.
    • Some of the games were late made available on Steam, at least.
  • No Export for You:
    • Despite the series being US-based, ABCs Under the Sea was exclusive to Europe for nearly three years.
    • The later Tie-In Novels were only published in Dutch.
    • All other Freddi Fish titles (including the rest of Humongous' titles, excluding The Case of the Missing Kelp Seeds) were never released in Sweden or Norway.
  • Sequel Gap: ABCs Under the Sea was made nearly a decade after the previous game, The Case of the Creature of Coral Cove.
  • What Could Have Been...: The Anime of the Game was to have been created by Lancit Media Entertainment.
    • The Case of the Missing Kelp Seeds was originally being developed for MS-DOS with low-res (320x200) art similar to the first 2 Putt-Putt games. The art style was eventually retooled and led to the hand-animated art style that made the game a Killer App for early multimedia computers.
    • In addition, Freddi and Luther's designs were vastly different in this iteration as well; Freddi had a pink and purple look (nicknamed the "Barbie" design by the original team), where Luther was still green but had a big nose and a much more comical design.
  • Word of God: Reportedly, the scene of Freddi getting misgendered in the second game by Mr. Triplefin and her response ("Excuse me, sir, but I'm not a boy. I'm a girl") was a result of the common Viewer Gender Confusion not just by children, but by outlets such as magazines and news articles. The development team threw that scene in to set the record straight.
