Meme Of The Week: Flounder From ‘The Little Mermaid Live’ Gets Trolled By The Internet

This year’s ABC live musical was mocked more than usual due to a really unfortunate Flounder puppet.

Another year, another awful and awkward live musical adaptation from ABC. This year, “The Little Mermaid” was the unlucky source material. Although casting directors certainly tried their best to make things enticing by hiring an eclectic mix of talent (Queen Latifah, Shaggy, Auli’i Cravalho, John Stamos and one of Ariana Grande’s ex-boyfriends), the whole musical was really bad.

There was also a fake Flounder, which left many of us baffled.

This is not the adorable Flounder that lives in your childhood memories and was best friends with Ariel.

Puppets are a hard trick to pull off. When done well, you get The Muppets, which are lovely and hilarious. When done wrong you get, well, 2019’s version of Flounder, who looks like a scary wet sock.
