Go To
Fishtronaut is an enviro-friendly animated mystery series in which Secret Agent Fishtronaut goes on slimy, furry and gooey adventures with his best friends, gal pal Marina and Zeek. Originally a Brazilian show titled Peixonauta, it was imported to the United States by Discovery Kids.

Targeting 3- to 6-year-olds, the series explores the world's many mysteries above and below water in a unique and entertaining way.

Its characters include:

  • Secret Agent Fishtronaut, a fish who wears flying armour to survive and interact with beings outside water.
  • Marina, a human tomboyish girl
  • Zeek, a monkey
  • Billy and Mac, twins and innocent trouble-makers.

Needs Wiki Magic Love.

Fishtronaut has examples of:

  • Action Girl: Marina, but the action is limited to searching for more clues in the park.
  • Balloon Belly: When Zeek eats too much of anything. Happy Plumb also gets one, always.
  • The Case Of: Every episode has this title.
  • Catchphrase: Whenever they solve a mystery.
  • Crazy-Prepared: Fishtronaut has anything you can imagine within his little armour.
  • Green Aesop: Since the whole show is fundamentally based around teaching kids about the environment, you can expect this to come up pretty often.

  • Idiosyncratic Episode Naming: Every episode is titled "The Case of the <X>", or "The <X> Case"
  • MacGyvering: Sometimes Fishtronaut pulls some tricks from his suit.
  • Mobile Fishbowl: Fishtronaut's suit is full of water.
  • No Fourth Wall: The characters always invite the viewers to help open the "pop" ball containing the initial clues.
  • Talking Animal: Almost the entire crew. The only recurring humans are Marina, her uncle Dr. Green and the twins.
  • Tomboy: Marina somewhat dresses like a boy, although she has prominent lipstick lips.
