‘Sam Squid’ & ‘Dashiell’ – Characters from The Aquafriends
Sam Squid – A private eye squid whose office is inside Dashiell’s throat pouch. Sam is the real deal: an honest to goodness detective along the lines of Sam Spade or Matt Helm. Sam can also find anything he needs in his throat pouch office: files, wanted posters, typewriters, copy machines, etc. Sam has the annoying habit of narrating everything that happens in real time as if it were the scenario from a 1940’s detective movie.
Dashiell – A silly bird that fancies himself as a detective. However, any solving of mysteries that come up for the Aqua Friends is done by Sam the squid, a hard-boiled, gumshoe who resides in Dashiell’s throat pouch.
