A wretched amalgamation of gimmicks
8 January 2005 | by selsheimerSee all my reviews

An example of a low point in Saturday morning cartoons, this particular series lumped together several concepts into a mess of show. Jabberjaw (capitalizing on the popularity of the movie "Jaws") is a talking shark who sounds like Curly Howard (leading the way for other insipid Three Stooges-inspired cartoons, including "The Three Robotic Stooges") and who mutters "I get no respect" (a nod to Rodney Dangerfield?). He travels with a band "The Neptunes" (like "Josie and the Pussycats" and countless other H-B cartoons) in a futuristic undersea realm (Sealab 2020) taking on various villains' nefarious schemes ("Scooby Doo, Where Are You", etc.).

Thanks to Turner's Boomerang channel for reminding me how much I hated this cartoon as a kid. It was around this time that I realized that my favorite cartoons were "Looney Tunes" and "Rocky and Bullwinkle" - cartoons that were made in previous decades aimed at general audiences and not patronizing to kids.
