Just 21 Tweets About The Little Mermaid Live's Absurdly Creepy Flounder Puppet
Hey, in the mood to have some nightmares tonight? Look no further than The Little Mermaid Live's Flounder puppet, which I can only imagine they sourced directly from hell.
Despite his chatty, chubby-cheeked cartoon counterpart from the 1989 film, ABC's live production opted for a yellow and blue sequined plush that only appeared in the first half of the broadcast. And that was more than enough, to be quite honest! Between his dead eyes and his bushy, neon blue eyebrows, 2019 Flounder has clearly been through it. And no — I promise I'm not the only person who picked up on this. (Thank god.)
