Fish Hooks is an American animated television series created by Noah Z. Jones which originally aired on Disney Channel from September 3, 2010 to April 4, 2014. Twenty-one episodes were ordered for the first season. It premiered on September 24, 2010.[2] An 11-minute preview was shown on September 3, 2010, following the Disney Channel Original Movie, Camp Rock 2: The Final Jam. It also premiered on ABC Family on January 15, 2011, at 7/6c. The series premiered on Disney XD on January 14, 2011. The stars of Fish Hooks are former That's So Raven and Cory in the House star Kyle Massey, Starstruck, Baby Daddy, as well as Jonas's Chelsea Kane and Justin Roiland. On September 23, 2013, Tom Warburton announced that Season 3 would be the final season as they had finished the last episode.[3]


The series revolves around outgoing fish Milo, his nervous brother Oscar, as well as their "overly dramatic" friend Bea Goldfishberg. They attend a school known as Fresh Water High, submerged in an aquarium in a pet store. The series chronicles their daily lives as they deal with everything, from eel attacks and field trips to romance and homework.


In 2009, President of entertainment Gary Marsh said of the show, "The Fish Hooks team has created one of the most original, inventive animated series on television – bringing an ingenious twist to the classic archetypes of high school life." The series will be produced using a mix of 2D digital animation and photo collages.[4] The series is created and co-executive produced by children's book illustrator Noah Z. Jones and developed for television by Alex Hirsch and Bill Reiss.[5] Main and recurring cast were announced in a Disney Channel press release on August 26, 2010.
