He meets different creatures of the sea who try to turn his frown upside down, but nothing seems to work. Then one day, a shimmering silver fish comes right up to Mr. Fish and kisses his pout and swims away. Watch the transformation of our friend and the different emotions he experiences throughout our tale from the sea.
