First Appearance Maternal Combat

Fishy is the Dexter family's pet goldfish. He appeared in the episodes "Maternal Combat" and "Morning Stretch" as a background character, but played a major role in the episode "Filet of Soul".


Fishy is small, round goldfish with bright yellow (sometimes dark orange) lips, and a yellow dorsal fin. After dying, Fishy's soul resembles his physical form while alive, but had crossed-out eyes and gained an eerie otherworldly glow. In his first appearance, Fishy had a more simplistic and "pointier" design with no lips.


Maternal Combat[]

Fishy was first seen Dee Dee took control of the Mom-Droid which began wrecking the house and almost broke Fishy's bowl. Instead, Fishy's bowl safely landed on a pillow but was about to be eaten by the Cat, luckily Mom-Droid grabbed the cat and swung it away, thus sparing Fishy.

Morning Stretch[]

Fishy watched in terror as the Dexter family cat lunged toward the fishbowl. However, Fishy was deemed safe as the cat bumped into the side of the glass bowl.

Filet of Soul[]

Fishy was accidentally killed by Dee Dee and Dexter after they forced him to do too many tricks, which made him suffer from overexertion. After they failed to give him a proper send-off to The Sewer Beyond (mostly because Dee Dee wanted to give him a good burial in the backyard), he came back from the dead to have his revenge. However, after his soul was capture, Dee Dee was taken by the great beyond for not flushing Fishy down the toilet, which they manage to do, only to realize that they only flush his body and not soul, which Dexter manage to do.
