Blinky the Fish is a three-eyed orange fish, found in the ponds and lakes of Springfield.
The Blinky species is seen quite often in natural bodies of water in Springfield, and is a product of the nuclear waste of Springfield Nuclear Power Plant. Blinky's most famous appearance was in "Two Cars in Every Garage and Three Eyes on Every Fish, when one is caught by Bart at the Old Fishin' Hole, and a picture is snapped of it by Dave Shutton and put in The Springfield Shopper. At the same time Mr. Burns was running for governor, and Blinky became a major topic in his election. He defended Blinky saying he was the next step in the evolutionary ladder and not a horrible mutant. As a publicity stunt Mr. Burns has dinner at The Simpsons home and Marge serves the Blinky that Bart had caught earlier. He ends up spitting it out because of its horrible taste and losing the election to Mary Bailey all because of Blinky. A member of his “species” has been seen in Futurama which means that, if both shows are in the same universe, the species survived over 1000 years.
