Pam's dolphin puppet

The dolphin puppet (aka Beauregard) is Pam's preferred tool in HR mediations. It is also featured in the Season 2 opening credits of Archer chasing after the "bullet".

The dolphin is an obscure reference to DUSO The Dolphin, a teaching aid from the 1980s.

Despite being a prominent in advertising for the series and a recurring element of the show and its intro, the dolphin puppet is not prominently featured in the actual series.

The Dolphin is never named until the third episode of the final season when Pam refers to him as "Beauregard". Beauregard is the last name of a Confederate General in the American Civil War.
