Oscar’s Hotel for Fantastical Creatures has been open for business for over a month now. The sixth episode in the first season of the Vimeo series, which aired Tuesday, is entitled “Fishy Business.” It features, of course, two giant walking, talking, suit-wearing fishies — one purple and one turquoise.
“The fish were definitely the biggest thing for me,” says creator PJ Liguori. “That was an imagination I did years and years ago.” He adds that the team at Jim Henson’s Creature Shop, who have been responsible for the creation of the fantastical creatures, was welcoming to work with. “I learned a lot just from being around them.”
The fish are voiced by Alfred Molina and Patrick Stewart. Watch Henson’s team create the costumes below.
