Fish Cooper is a character first appearing in the spin-off show, Young Sheldon.

Fish was a small fish given to Sheldon Cooper by Meemaw to overcome his fear of animals. Once Sheldon tried to pet Fish, it bit Sheldon's finger, terrifying him. Sheldon exclaimed this to George Cooper Sr., who then showed Sheldon that Fish was harmless by touching Fish himself. However, Fish bit down hard on George's finger, causing him to instinctively swing his finger, accidentally killing Fish.

Fish's name was given by Sheldon as a way to avoid getting attached to it.
