HANK the SEPTOPUS from Finding Dory

And just who this character? Pixar Wiki gives us his bio: Hank is an octopus. Actually, he’s a ‘septopus:’ he lost a tentacle — along with his sense of humor — somewhere along the way. But Hank is just as competent as his eight-armed peers. An accomplished escape artist with camouflaging capabilities to boot, Hank is the first to greet Dory when she finds herself in the Marine Life Institute. But make no mistake: he’s not looking for a friend. Hank is after one thing — a ticket on a transport truck to a cozy Cleveland facility where he’ll be able to enjoy a peaceful life of solitude.

If that bio is to be believed, then why did I have these sightings in my kitchen last night?

Hank 004

At first I thought I was just seeing things as he vanished almost as fast as he appeared. But then…

Hank 005

There he was again! And to add insult to mystery, I think he said (in a perfect imitation of the actor Ed O’Neill) I needed to clean my coffee pot…

Hank 006

He hadn’t found Dory yet

When I finally nabbed him, he just froze and expected me to believe he was just a hand-sized plush…

Hank 002     Hank 003

He even left this marketing tag where I could find it to further his deception…

Hank 001

After losing seven straight staring contests to him I gave up and made the mistake of looking away. And he was off again! But I saw him one more time…

Hank 007

At least… I think I did! Maybe I need to cut out those late-night nachos.

    My husband told me that Hand has been in every Pixar movie. Or so he was told.

      I will give your husband half points for that information, as he is partly right. The truth of the matter is that Pixar slips a character from an upcoming feature into the present feature. For example, Dug from UP! was seen briefly in the preceeding movie Ratatouille.

      So Hank was seen in the preceeding movie The Good Dinosaur. But no other appearances have been recorded. But would they? He is good at camouflage! LOL
