Created by children's book illustrator and author Noah Z.

It stars Kyle Massey ("Cory in the House") as Milo, Chelsea Staub ("JONAS L.A.") as Bea and Justin Roiland ("The Sarah Silverman Program") as Oscar. Recurring guest stars include comedian Rachel Dratch ("Saturday Night Live"), exercise guru Richard Simmons, comedic legend Jerry Stiller ("The King of Queens"), ABC TV star Atticus Shaffer ("The Middle") and Edie McClurg ("Ferris Bueller's Day Off"), among others.

Maxwell Atoms ("The Grim Adventures of Billy & Mandy") is the executive producer and Noah Z. Jones is the co-executive producer. Carl Greenblatt ("Chowder") and Bill Reiss ("Chowder") direct the episodes.

"Fish Hooks," from Disney Television Animation, follows Milo, Bea and Oscar, three best friends who live in a giant fish tank trying to navigate their way through the choppy waters of high school. Together they experience the typical life challenges and triumphs, including friendship, dating and sports, along with more atypical situations such as giant lobster attacks and, with the use of special land suits, school field trips to the hamster cages.
