“This is a ceiling-hanging sharklike puppet whose mouth opens/closes when you pull on the tie. The center bottom of the fish body is a dark wire cage full of casket shapes painted with skeletons hanging on golden fish hooks. The fish hooks are attached by their leader to small toy tops laying on their sides inside a clear cage on the top of the fish body. The top of the fish body is painted to resemble a blue sky with white clouds.”
