Educated Fish

Fleischer Studios (1937)

Educated Fish is a 1937 animated short film that was part of Paramount’s Color Classics series. It was nominated for Best Animated Short at the 10th Academy Awards.

In an underwater school for fish, bad boy Tommy Cod would rather play pinball in his desk than recite the daily lesson about hooks, fishing poles, and lines so strong. Tommy is locked out of class by the teacher to study harder. He learns his lesson the hard way when caught by a fisherman’s bait.
