Big Mouth Billy Bass, the plaque-mounted animatronic fish that croons punny songs like “Don’t Worry Be Happy,” “I Will Survive” and “Take Me to the River” while flapping his tail and moving his head to serenade you, is being reincarnated with an Alexa integration that allows him to respond to voice commands.
