The Carnivorous Goldfish is a Macy's original character, who originated as a balloon in the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade.

History with the Macy's Parade

As is the case with many early Goodyear balloons, not much is known about this balloon, but what is known is that the balloon only made a single appearance in 1928, and was escorted down the parade route by six participants dressed up as sword-wielding pirates. While the balloon only appeared once in the aforementioned year before retiring, the balloon made a notable impact on Macy's Parade history in that the fish balloon was the very first balloon that was ever designed for the parade.
