* FurryConfusion: Or fishy confusion, at least. Most fish portrayed in the show--including most other sharks--are drawn realistically and can't move about on land. Then there's Jabberjaw...



* TailfinWalking: How Jabberjaw gets around.

to:

* TailfinWalking: How Jabberjaw gets around. One-shot character Francine Lafinn can walk on her tailfin, too. Commander Shark's army of shark-human hybrids are apparently supposed to be able to do this by design, but only Shelly and Clamhead (transformed into sharks themselves) are actually shown walking on land.

Added DiffLines:

* {{Expy}}: Design-wise, Clamhead heavily resembles [[WesternAnimation/ScoobyDooWhereAreYou Shaggy]].


Added DiffLines:

* FantasticRacism: Pretty much every city the Neptunes visit view sharks as mindless maneaters, and have systems to throw them out. And they view Jabberjaw as such, leading to his catchphrase.

* GoneHorriblyRight: In "No Helpin' the Sculpin", Clamhead is mistaken for a scientist by the villainous Sculpin. The others show up to try to help him 'fix' the time machine the Sculpin has him working on. They, of course, are just trying to scam him to let Clamhead go. But it turns out they actually fix it to work.

In 1976, Creator/HannaBarbera created this show for Creator/{{ABC}} as a response to the popularity of the film ''Film/{{Jaws}}''. Creator/FrankWelker based the lead character's voice on Curly Howard from ''Film/TheThreeStooges'', along with Rodney Dangerfield's CatchPhrase, "I don't get no respect." [[note]]He would later go on to actually voice Curly in "The Robonic Stooges" segments on ''Skatebirds'' using the same voice.[[/note]]
