Big Mouth Billy Bass is an Animated novelty decoration first made in 1999, and is the first of many singing taxidermy fish and animals made by Gemmy Industries. He is undoubtedly one of their most popular items ever. He is a largemouth bass mounted on a wooden plaque with a golden nameplate bearing his name underneath him. When activated, Billy Bass springs to life, flapping his tail and moving his head outward and off the plaque as he sings and moves his mouth to the words.
