BoJack Horseman Wiki

Abe D'Catfish is a recurring character. His first appearance was in The Shot, in Season 2.


Abe is a friendly, jovial, supposedly easy to work with director who doesn't mind being the studios "yes man" and doesn't care about making movies for the awards. That is, until BoJack jokingly points out how bad and cheesy the movie is turning out, and hurts Abe's feelings and hard work on the production. This does cause him to be a little bit more sadistic with BoJack on set.

Physical Appearance[]

Abe is an overweight dark brown male catfish with a grey patch on his chin. He has grey barbels that point down vaguely representing a mustache.

He wears a salmon pink collared button-down shirt, blue knitted vest with pink trim, grey pants, black belt, and teal sneakers, and cell phone holder clipped to his waist.

He wears a blue baseball cap with a white front panel with a front dark blue oval-shaped logo that reads "GONE FISHING" in capital-light blue lettering.


Abe is a catfish director who replaces Kelsey Jannings after Lenny Turteltaub fires her.

Season 2[]

Abe and BoJack butted heads after BoJack accidentally insulted his films due to a misunderstanding.

Abe said, the movie they were filming, was not Casablanca. BoJack misunderstands what this means.

Abe literally meant the movie Secretariat, they were filming was not Casablanca, because the film Casablanca already exists.

BoJack thought this meant the movie they were filming was not a masterpiece, taking a stab at the project, insulting it over dinner at Abe's house.

He then passive-aggressively makes BoJack re-shoot the same scenes over and over.

Season 3[]

He later appears, at the premiere of Secretariat, at the Pacific Ocean City Film festival. He is seen at the after-party, where he buys BoJack a drink from a blobfish bartender, in Fish Out of Water.
