Beatrice "Bea" Goldfishberg is an overly dramatic, cheerful, intimidating goldfish and the main tritagonist of Fish Hooks. Her best friends are Milo and Oscar. Her other friends include Shellsea, Clamantha, Koi, Finberley, and Esmargot. To many other male fish, she is very pretty as shown when she was going out on a lot of dates in the episode "Doris Flores Gorgeous". She was crowned queen of the dance in the episode "Queen Bea".
PersonalityBea's lifelong dream is to become a famous actress and rising star. She is often overly dramatic. She doesn't like it when people don't let her do her act or when people don't say their lines. She is also very flirtatious, as she was dating a lot or whenever a guy of her interest is near ("Doris Flores Gorgeous", "Dances with Wolf Fish", "Milo Gets a Ninja", "Fish Floaters"). She pretty much thinks all that boys like, for their birthday, is extra strength deodorant. She thinks she is too talented to be punched ("Happy Birthfish, Jocktopus"). She also likes football ("Underwater Boy" and "Dances with Wolf Fish"). She plays video games with Milo and Oscar ("Two Clams in Love").
She is also portrayed as being somewhat arrogant, always complementing herself, particularly on her acting abilities, and has trouble taking criticism. Sometimes she will claim to be able to do things that she can't, such as scorpion riding ("Bea's Commercial").
Bea is a goldfish with a golden bodysuit, red fins, and flippers. She has freckles and long red hair with a starfish hairband. She says that her eyes are too far apart and that she has fish lips (Fishbook) In the episode, "Oscar is a Playa," when looking at Oscar her eyes were actually green while pouting.
- Main article: Oscar and Bea's relationship
There are small hints that she may be able to harbor romantic feelings for him like when after hearing Oscar's confession, tells him that it was stupid of him and that she preferred him the way he is ("Funny Fish"). And when Oscar tries to convince her to stay in high school and says he'll miss her; her friends erupt into "aww"s ("Bea Becomes an Adult Fish").
The only time she seemed to be very worried about Oscar (at least more than in other episodes where she isn't too concerned) is when Milo sneaks into the gym (disguised as a volleyball) tells her about Oscar's initiation and how they'll lose him forever and says "We have to do something!" when Milo replies "Like what?" she gets very serious and says "Something..." and spikes Milo hard enough that he flies across the room and shatters a window ("The Dark Side of the Fish").
When the two pay off Randy after Milo takes a loan from him he can't pay; the two take on somewhat parental roles throughout the episode telling Milo to go get a job and pay both of them back. At one point Oscar (at the end of a scolding he gave Milo) actually grabbed Bea's fin, which for a moment she didn't even mind or consider out of the norm, until Oscar blushed. ("Dollars and Fish")
When the two genders compete for "Best Float" instead of kicking Oscar out of the girl's base after his failed attempt of "stink bomb" on them; she and the girls convince him to take up crocheting to help them, and even even tells Milo over the walkie-talkies "He's our brother now." Later on when the two floats are about to crash into each other; after telling the girl's to abandon ship she quickly shouts "Move your tail Oscar!", and forces him off and follows him after ("Fish Floaters").
When Clamantha began to chase Oscar again one day during shop class Bea mentioned how at one point she used to think that Clamantha's crush was cute at one point but was now just sad, later when Oscar complained about her she tried to help him calm down by saying that he was safe with them in his and Milo's tank (until Clamantha showed up scaring her and making her swim downstairs quickly). She later helped with typing up things to trick Clamantha into thinking a laptop was her boyfriend ("Two Clams in Love").
Bea also once said that something Oscar did was kinda cute, although it may have been just to get him to do something ("Oscar Makes an Impression").
Oscar tells Bea he hopes they can always be friends and that his life wasn't supposed to go the way it is, now that he's going to pursue Angela. He and Bea hug, Bea still completely unaware that Oscar likes her ("Send Me an Angel Fish").
At the prom, Bea was abandoned by Steve Jackson by accident, until when Finberly announces slow dancing and Bea begins to cry and runs to Hockey Pokey and Oscar follows her. Then Oscar asks slow dancing to Bea, so they finally danced. She kissed Oscar on the cheek and they hugged ("Fish Prom" ).
Oscar finally asked Bea out on a date, but she invited all their friends to the concert at the last minute. In the end, Bea leans over to Oscar's shoulder during "their song". ("Live at the Hamsterwood Bowl").
When Bea was dating with Brandon Bubbler, she only wanted talk about him with Oscar. But she realized that Brandon was cheating on her all this time, she cried in a tree and Oscar found her. So, Oscar tried to lift her mood and she hugged him. Finally, Shellsea asked her that why She doesn't like Brandon, and Bea said that Brandon isn't the guy that she need, and then she looked Oscar and greets him. ("Camp Camp")
Bea says, "You poor baby!" when he get's injured, she hugs him, and says that she will never leave his side until he's healed. ("Unresolved Fishues").
Bea and Oscar share a blocked kiss just after graduation ("The Big Woo").
Milo is one of Bea's two best friends. The two seem to be good friends. Milo may not acknowledge certain things that Bea does for him, but this does not bring any harm to their friendship. Milo thinks that Bea is Bea-utiful after seeing her school's photo, and later of this, Bea hugs him. ("Bea Stays in the Picture").
Milo is afraid of lose Bea forever ("Fish Sleepover Party") ("Bye Bye Bea Bea") ("The Big Woo"). Bea is always willing to help Milo in any situation, no matter how risky it is. ("Fail Fish"); ("Fish Out of Water"); ("Big Fish"); ("Dollars and Fish"). Both are competitive, so if it's "boys vs. girls", they become rivals. ("Fish Floaters").
The two were dating in ("Bea Dates Milo") And both were forced to "kissing", but soon break up, because they just what to remain friends.
Milo never bought a gift for her birthday ("Bea's Birthday Surprise"). Milo can get bored quickly when she talk about something not interesting to him.
Milo tried to ask Bea to be his fake-date in the prom, because he had no one else who invite. ("Fish Prom")
