It’s Halloween in Freshwater and the scene is set for a night of frights and fun. There is only one hit — Jocktopus. To avoid the constant pummeling and candy stealing that he brings to the night, the gang takes their trick-or-treating tactics outside of the tanks and into the pet store for an adventure.

Background Information

  • In the first promo, Shellsea and Oscar's voices sounded different; however, in the second promo, Oscar has his normal voice back so it should be noted that this was just an effect for the promo.
  • This is the first time the fish meet Snake and Mouse personally.
  • This is the first episode where Mouse and Snake appear outside the end credits, not counting Mouse's cameo in "Hooray for Hamsterwood."
  • It is revealed that Jocktopus has been stealing people's candy the past Halloweens, and that he has been stealing food from (possibly) the past Fishgivings.
  • A pun in this episode is that one of the fish is a zombie, or rather, a "ZomBea."
  • The costumes seen through to episode with the major characters are:
    • Milo dressed as a sushi (unknown in flashback).
    • Oscar dressed as a cowboy (king in flashback).
    • Bea dressed as a zombie (cat in flashback).
    • Koi dressed as a horse bottom shared with Finberley.
    • Finberley dressed as a horse top shared with Koi (witch in flashback).
    • Clamantha dressed as a punk rocker (though she did not know it was Halloween).
    • Albert Glass dressed as a wizard (pilot in flashback).
    • Steve Jackson dressed as a shirtless werewolf (parody of Twilight's Jacob Black).
    • Esmargot dressed as a ghost.
    • Shellsea dressed as the bride of Frankenstein.
    • Jumbo Shrimp dressed as an owl.
    • Randy Pincherson dressed as a pirate.

Production Information


  • When they were out of the tanks about to go trick-or-treating, they did not appear to have water suits on, so it does not seem like they could breathe.



  • Steve Jackson's costume "a shirtless werewolf when there isn't a full moon" is an obvious reference to Jacob in the Twilight Saga.
