Jabberjaw is an anthropomorphic 15-foot air-breathing great white shark who plays the drums for the Neptunes and was also the main title character of the Jabberjaw animated television series. His voice was originated by Frank Welker impersonating Curly Howard of The Three Stooges.

In the Jellystone! reboot, Jabberjaw appears as a female shark who works at Magilla's. She is voiced by Niccole Thurman.

Character description

As originally depicted, Jabberjaw is someone who feels he doesn't get enough respect. At times he will say "Nyuk, nyuk, nyuk," another mannerism copied from Curly Howard.

In the aforementioned reboot, Jabberjaw is boy crazy, with her main crush being El Kabong, but she doesn't hesitate to ask any boy out, as she gets left unread by the Banana Splits after texting them.[1] She's also an overly cheerful employee at Magilla's clothing store, and is best friends with Loopy De Loop. However, she is career driven and willing to do anything to achieve her goals, even if they are questionable.[2]
