7 – The same thing happened with clownfish after the release of Finding Nemo.
Finding Nemo (2003) was another massive hit for the Disney/Pixar animation crews. It centers around a clown fish named Marlin and his friend Dory (voiced by Ellen DeGeneres) who embark on a journey through the ocean to find Marlin’s son Nemo.
After the release of Finding Nemo, demand for actual clown fish surged. All this despite the fact that the most emotional moment in the film occurs when Nemo, a helpless young clown fish, is plucked from the ocean by a recreational diver and placed in a dentist office fish tank.
