  • Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.

The Neptunes in concert. Don't worry, the drummer is harmless.[1]

Me and my friends get no respect,

What does Scooby do that we neglect?

We be puttin' all our foes in check,

but me and my friends get no respect!
Pain, From their song "Running Underwater"

"Jabberjaw is a great white shark with a voice like Curly from The Three Stooges. That's an odd concept, I don't care where you're from. That makes H.R. Pufnstuf look staid."
Mike Nelson, Mike Nelson's Movie Megacheese

In 1976, Hanna-Barbera created this show for ABC as a response to the popularity of the film Jaws. Frank Welker based the lead character's voice on Curly Howard from The Three Stooges, along with Rodney Dangerfield's Catch Phrase, "I don't get no respect."

Jabberjaw, an amphibious shark, is the drummer in a rock band called the Neptunes. His human friends are guitarist Biff, bassist Clamhead, keyboardist Bubbles and tambourinist Shelly; the last appeared to be allergic to Jabberjaw's displays of affection. When they're not making music, Jabberjaw and his friends solve mysteries Under the Sea, in yet another variation on the Scooby Doo formula. They live in a future when the ocean floor has been extensively colonized with domed cities and the like.

In subsequent seasons, Jabberjaw was a referee in Laff-A-Lympics and a competitor in Yogi's Space Race.

Cartoon Network did a short music video in the nineties that ReVisioned the Neptunes as an alternative-rock band with a trumpet; the video still airs regularly as filler on the Boomerang network.

Tropes used in Jabberjaw include:
