An updated version of the classic Hannah-Barbera mystery cartoon. The story for this series is about the same as for the older series, with one major change: the Mystery Machine gang is now... See full summary »
Throughout the mid to late 1970's,producers William Hanna and Joesph Barbera were the forefront of children's programming and had some of most successful shows ever devised for Saturday Mornings. Unlike their counterparts over at Filmation,they were ahead of the competition bringing a variety of shows that were especially designed for children as well as adults to enjoy. There were some that were very interesting to watch and for one "Jabberjaw" is one of them. On the same premise as another Hanna-Barbera cartoon about a talking car like "Speed Buggy", this premise consisted of a talking great white shark who could walk upright and was always getting into mischief. If you listen to the voice of Jabber it sounds just like Curly of "The Three Stooges",but it was really Frank Welker who did numerous voiceovers for various characters including Dino,and Scooby Doo. He always protected a bunch of kids called "The Neptunes" who were the equals of Scooby Doo but had a rock and roll band under the sea. I watch this show tremendously and the reruns can be seen on Cartoon Network. I really love the person who did the voice of Shelly,but if you looked closely,it does looked like Seinfeld's Julia-Louis Dreyfuss(as a teenager) in an animated cartoon.
