It also shared The Flintstones' penchant for making use of puns as the names of locations, people, etc., in this case, ocean-themed puns (such as "Aqualaska" instead of Alaska). Jabberjaw ran for 16 episodes from 1976 - 1978 on ABC - source: Wikipedia

I do remember jabberjaw. I was not a fan of the cartoon but remember it clearly. I think it is cool that you remember such an obscurity. Thanks for the memories!

obscurity is my specialty! 16 episodes, huh? it obviously made a lasting impression on me, and I was only 7 at the time!
