"YOU'RE CA-RA-ZAY, I like it!"
-Shellsea, to Bea[src]

Shellsea is a jewel fish[1] and is Bea's best friend. She loves fashion, taking "disco naps", shopping, dancing and seeing who’s less attractive than her in the yearbook[2].


Shellsea is very independent, focused, always speaks her mind, and can be mean at times. She also seems to dislike Milo and Oscar. She is a fashion diva and when Bea is not hanging out with Milo and Oscar, she always makes time for her friends, especially Shellsea. Like Bea, Shellsea has interest in the drama club. Shellsea enjoys dancing and listening to popular music. She also enjoys putting on makeup from her white handbag.

Personal Life

Shellsea's yearbook picture



Shellsea had one of her first and most major roles when Bea was about to do a girls' party. When Milo wanted to go to the party, Shellsea told him that sometimes girls like to get together and have fun, and that it was nothing personal that they did not invite him. When Milo and Oscar came disguised as girls, Shellsea thought they looked ugly, and thought they were spying on them, so, instead of having Bea tell Milo and Oscar to leave, Shellsea told her that since they were trying to ruin their night, that they should ruin theirs instead. Bea and Shellsea then tortured them and sang "Eat Dip". When Oscar admits they are boys, Bea says that they already knew. When Milo and Oscar told Bea that they thought they were gonna lose her forever, Shellsea said she did not know that boys could be so sweet.

Shellsea had possibly her most major role in "I Have This Friend", when Bea and the rest of the girls suspect that Shellsea may be upset that she does not have a boyfriend. The entire episode is based on them trying to find a suitable mate for Shellsea and failing until they find Michael, a fish who is exactly like Shellsea. It seems perfect until they found out that Michael was Shellsea's friend all along.


Bea Goldfishberg


Shellsea and Bea love to dance together.



Bea and Shellsea are the best of friends. Shellsea gives her tips or advice and is seen with Bea everywhere, except when Bea is having an adventure with Milo or Oscar. They both have a lot in common and Shellsea is always there for Bea when she needs her. Shellsea and Bea usually talk about dating, boys and "girl stuff".


Shellsea knows Milo, but doesn't hang out with him much. But since Milo is Bea's friend, Shellsea may be just "friends" with him, though Shellsea tortured them for sneaking to their party ("Fish Sleepover Party"). Like the other students, Shellsea enjoyed Milo's entrance in the class with the eel ("Fish Out of Water"). In Rock Lobster Yeti, when everyone believes that Milo is captured and eaten by the yeti, Shellsea simply remarks, "Better save the leftovers." Despite any praise she has ever given him, she generally does not seem to like him, and seems to think he is immature.


Like Milo, Oscar and Shellsea's relationship is unknown. She suggested torturing him along with Milo for breaking into the party ("Fish Sleepover Party"). It is sometimes contradicting, such as Shellsea liking Oscar's sense of humor ("Funny Fish"), but, according to Oscar, talks about him behind his back ("Halloween Haul"). Their relationship was addressed in ("Fuddy Duddy Study Buddy"), when the two got paired up for a project, and it is shown that even though Shellsea may think Oscar is a bit lame, she tries to help him and even says that he is "awesome" to help him relax. Oscar did not seem to agree with Shellsea on a lot of things in this episode, but otherwise, he does not show much distaste for her. At the end of the episode, Shellsea eventually helps Oscar relax and get an A on their project.
