Misterjaw is a 34-episode made-for-television cartoon series, produced at DePatie-Freleng Enterprises in 1976 for The Pink Panther and Friends television series on NBC.
Misterjaw (voiced by Arte Johnson) was a blue-colored great white shark (who wore a purple vest with white collar, a black bow tie and tall black top hat) who liked to leap out of the water and shout "HEEGotcha!" or "Gotcha!" at unsuspecting folks. He spoke with a German accent and was known to mispronounce words (examples: "dumbkuff" and "knucklehead" -- pronounced as k-nucklehead). He also had a sidekick, a yellow derby-wearing Brooklyn-accented catfish simply named Catfish (voiced by Arnold Stang) who usually referred to Misterjaw as "boss" or "chief"; Misterjaw usually called Catfish either "pally", "fella" or "sonny" when in a good mood, or names like "dumbkuff", "knucklehead", "macaroni brain" when angry or interrupted. Sometimes, Misterjaw would mistakenly address his sidekick as "Dogfish", only to correct himself a split second later by saying; "I Mean, Catfish". The two would get into all sorts of mischief, ranging from trying to catch Harry Halibut to outwitting Fearless Freddy the Shark Hunter (voiced by Paul Winchell), amongst other adventures.
Misterjaw was one of two cartoon sharks created as a cash-in on the Jaws craze one year after Jaws' release (the other being the Hanna-Barbera created Jabberjaw).
