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 Misterjaw™ 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.


DVD Extras Include:

Two documentaries by Greg Ford and William Hohauser: "Chips Off the Old Blockbusters" and "Tales of Production (and Production Overload) - Featuring author Mark Arnold, historian Jerry Beck, cartoon director/producer John R. Dilworth, ink-and-paint specialist Barbara Donatello, composer Doug Goodwin, director/animator Art Leonardi, and layout artist Martin Strudler

Audio commentaries for selected films by author Mark Arnold, historian Jerry Beck, filmmaker Greg Ford, and cartoon writer William Hohauser
