What Are the Names of Some Famous Cartoon Fish?

Some famous cartoon fish include Nemo and Dory from “Finding Nemo,” Flounder from “The Little Mermaid,” and Klaus from “American Dad.” The first three of these fish are family-friendly Disney characters, while Klaus is associated with the ribald comedy of Seth MacFarlane.

Nemo the clownfish is one of the main characters in Disney-Pixar’s 2003 computer animated film, “Finding Nemo.” Dory, a blue tang fish, has a smaller role in the same film. The movie contains numerous other piscine characters, including Nemo’s father, Marlin. A traditionally animated movie, “The Little Mermaid” also contains many sea animal characters. Flounder, a yellow and blue striped fish of indeterminate species, is best friends with the protagonist, Ariel.

Klaus Heissler is a talking goldfish on the animated television show “American Dad.” Originally a human whose consciousness was transferred into the body of a fish, Klaus lives in a fish bowl as a family pet. He retains a human level of intelligence and a strong attraction to human females, which is played to humorous effect.
