The Golden Fish (French: Histoire d'un poisson rouge) is a 1959 short film directed by Edmond Séchan. It won an Academy Award in 1960 for Best Short Subject.[1]


The film, which has a musical score but no dialogue tells of an oriental boy, who wins a goldfish at a carnival. He brings it home as a pet, along with his canary. The fish jumps out of the bowl, falling on the table. A local cat, having entered the house, returns the fish (using its mouth) to the bowl, and leaves just as the boy comes back.
