What kind of shell is Marcel?
Crafted out of a hermit crab shell, a googly eye and a pair of pink Polly Pocket tennis shoes, Marcel the Shell leaves an outsize impression that belies his one-inch stature.
Is Marcel a snail?
Marcel the Shell with Shoes On is a 2010 American stop-motion animated mockumentary short film directed by Dean Fleischer-Camp, who co-wrote the script with Jenny Slate. The film tells the story of Marcel (voiced by Slate), an anthropomorphic seashell outfitted with a single googly eye and a pair of miniature shoes.
