YMMV / Help! I'm a Fish

  • Awesome Art: This is some gorgeous hand-drawn animation! So gorgeous it's almost always compared to Don Bluth's works in terms of visuals.
  • Crowning Moment of Awesome: Chuck beating up a whole school of piranha by himself..
    • And earlier, him carrying around an injured Fly while quickly putting together a crazy plan to get back into the lab and get the remaining antidote there.
      • Fly goading Joe into drinking enough antidote to turn himself into a human and drown.
  • Crowning Music of Awesome: The Villain Song "Intelligence" has become a fan-favorite. Even fans who didn't like the other songs in the movie tend to like this one.
  • Critical Research Failure: Jellyfish and starfish aren't fish. Then again, since "fish" aren't a natural clade (unless tetrapods are to be considered fish) it really doesn't matter.
  • Cult Classic: This film is pretty much unknown among most people. However, it actually has gained a fansite.
  • Ear Worm: I'm a little yellow fish in the deep blue sea/Could somebody help me?
  • Fridge Logic: How does MacKrill know there's a time limit on using the antidote?
    • It's possible he's tested it out on someone before.
    • That small bottle of antidote sure managed to go a long way and it was already leaking for a bit before Joe found it.
  • Nightmare Fuel: For a film aimed at kids, it certainly has a couple of prominent moments
    • Especially since, when Joe takes too much antidote, he ends up looking like a cross between Ryuk, the Joker and Mr. Hyde.
  • Retroactive Recognition: Aaron Paul as Chuck, eight years before he became famous for playing Jesse Pinkman.
  • Tear Jerker: Stella's goodbye to Sasha.
    • Don't forget the part near the end, where everyone is convinced that Fly is dead.
