The Cosmic Fish are aliens who appear to Gonzo in Muppets from Space and tell him that his people have been searching for him. Gonzo is instructed to mow a message into the lawn that can be seen from space. Unfortunately, Rentro and the people at C.O.V.N.E.T. discover Gonzo's message and abduct him.

As a result of the lightning strike that put Gonzo into contact with the Cosmic Knowledge Fish, Gonzo's body gets burned and blackened.

They claim to be "Highly-evolved beings."


  • In the DVD commentary, Rizzo tells us that the fish were originally meant to be played by Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman, but that it didn't work due to not being able to find fish costumes in their sizes.
