Marcel the Shell returns, sings, is generally wonderful in new video

Posted on


Marcel the Shell with Shoes On has a song to share in the latest video from Jenny Slate and Dean Fleischer-Camp. It’s “A Perfect Day” and Marcel learned it at camp. “I sing it because my best friend lives far away,” Marcel explains.

Marcel also reveals the truth about shrimp (“They’re the idiots of the sea”), where he puts deodorant (“in between my shell and my shoe”), and his favorite saying (“Life’s a party, rock your body”). He also shows how he unwinds and how he contends with allergies. It’s all, obviously, adorable.

Marcel’s new video comes a day ahead of the release of Slate and Fleischer-Camp’s latest book on the little shell: Marcel the Shell: The Most Surprised I’ve Ever Been.
