Jabberjaw: The Complete Series DVD Review
The Complete Series now available for the First Time on DVD: http://bit.ly/WAC_Jabberjaw

Synopsis: Playing in a rock-’n’-roll band and saving the undersea world from diabolical villains? An impossible task for most, but not for Jabberjaw, the 15-foot talking great white shark from the fan-favorite Saturday morning cartoon series. The year is 2076 and Jabberjaw is the star of the Neptunes, a teenage rock group. In his spare time, Jabberjaw, along with teens Biffy, Shelly, Bubbles and Clamhead, fight deep sea crime. But its tough down there for a shark. Jabberjaw must also contend with the robot force of “Shark Ejectors,” guards who prevent sharks from entering into underwater cities. All he wants is a little respect! Catch the tidal wave of adventure, music and laughter in this 4-Disc, 16-Episode Series Collection.

Review: Jabberjaw is a classic Hanna-Barbera produced cartoon that ran from 1976-78.  The show was designed by the legendary duo of Ruby-Spears.  The basic plot took place under the sea in 2076, where a band called the Neptunes traveled around with their shark drummer and stopped villains from trying to take over their underwater world.  Yep...thats right.   The episodes were 30 minutes long and they produced a total of 16 of them during the show's run.  The feel of the show was very similar to Scooby-Doo and the Flintstones.

Now, the Warner Archive has pulled out this classic show to be released as a complete series on DVD!  This is an online exclusive product, so don't look for this one in stores.  The transfer of the episodes looks pretty good for a show from the 1970s.

If you're a fan of this show and classic animation in general, this release is for you.  I also like to recommend these to parents that are frustrated with trying to find appropriate cartoons for their little ones these days.  Don't forget that the old 70s shows were all very safe and parent-friendly.
