Plot Synopsis:

When shark-mania struck America in the mid 1970s, it was only natural that a cartoon character would surface inspired by Steven Spielberg's Jaws. The result was MisterjawTM which represents one of the final accomplishments of animation legend Robert McKimson. With his signature catch phrase Gotcha! and his sidekick Catfish (the incomparable Arnold Stang) the German-accented great white (voiced by Arte Johnson of TV's Laugh-In) swam for a remarkable 34 episodes, which revived some of the popular tropes of classic animated shorts, while providing clever send-ups of the decade s other pop-cultural phenomena.
