After the death of Marlin's wife, Coral, Marlin finds a clownfish egg and names the baby, Nemo. One morning, Nemo woke up and exited his home with Marlin. Today is Nemo's first day of school. After being bored with Mr. Ray, Nemo was warned to not swim in open water as it's dangerous. Later, Dr. Sherman took away Nemo and Marlin can't find his son. Later, Marlin crashed into a Regal Tang named Dory and after the problem, a great white shark met with the two fish. After the sharks' pledge, Dory was hit by the mask Dr. Sherman dropped and Bruce smells blood! Bruce chases the two and was chased by the explosion. Now in the West Wallaby Dental Office, Nemo was in a tank and met up with strange new fish called the Tank Gang. After that, Marlin and Dory are searching for Nemo, but they entered a dark place and battled an anglerfish. One night, Gill plans to the tank gang how to escape when they put a pebble on the filter, it will be dirty and the dentist uses the AquaScum 2003 on the tank, the dentist has to put the fish in bags and roll down to the ocean! However, they are the dentist's fish! Later, Marlin and Dory are lost in a jellyfish forest after Squishy, a little jellyfish was hit. Later after escaping, the East Australian Current, a group of turtles come to get them. Later, to let the dentist put the fish out, Nemo must put the pebbles in the filter, making it dirty. Back in the ocean after escaping the EAC, a blue whale eats up Marlin and Dory and they have to find a way out. Later, the tank is dirty and the dentist has to clean. Later, Dory and Marlin are helped by a pelican named Nigel to find Nemo. Later, Darla entered the office and tapped the glass. The Riot of the Dentist's office has began. Nemo was flushed when he entered the drain after the riot in the dentist's office. In the sewers, they are lost in an area with crabs and Nemo was finally found! A pair of fishermen are about to catch the fish and a grouper told one fish that he's swimming the wrong way. Later, the fish are trapped in the net and the net broke! Later, Nemo was reunited back and will later be good now.
