Marcel the Shell

A one-eyed, bug-riding weirdo. With heart.

You know how sometimes you can’t decide whether something is hilarious or just plain creepy? Marcel the Shell With Shoes On falls into that category. This one-eyed talking shell gives us the willies, and yet we watched his new YouTube video all the way to the end. We like to imagine the voice actor trying to keep a straight face while delivering lines like, “We don’t have a newspaper but sometimes I just read a receipt.” He’s got a new book out, too.
