The Top 5 Most Popular Fictional Sharks [Videos]

In honor of Shark Week, we wanted to give you something a little out of the ordinary to help celebrate. In this top 5 list you will find the most popular fictional sharks of all time.


Street Sharks – Ripster, Jab, Streex, Big Slammu

Animated television series 1994 – 1996



We kick off our list with Street Sharks. It might be a bit obscure if you didn't have kids during the late 90's (or weren't a kid yourself.) The cartoon show was created to cash in off of the popularity of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, which were hitting their peak during that time. The show didn't last too long, but it definitely was ingrained in the minds of children and adults in the 90's. 




Saturday Night Live sketch 1975-2002



The Landshark is the cleverest species of them all… This recurring Saturday Night Live character has been having audiences rolling for over 2 decades. Landshark originally appeared as a Jaws II spoof, but he eventually appeared 8 more episodes. He was a regular during the first 3 season of SNL, but went away, only to reappear in the 8th and 27th seasons.

Saturday morning animated series 1976-1978



Jabberjaw was a cartoon shark from the late 1970's. The Jabberjaw show was a Hanna-Barbera creation that aired on ABC. Fun fact, Jabberjaw was also the drummer in his cartoon band, The Neptunes. 



Finding Nemo – Bruce, Chum, Anchor

Computer-animated comedy-drama 2003



One of Pixar's most popular films brings with it some of the world's most popular fictional sharks. These sharks are easily recognizable to both young and old (probably because most parents had to sit through 50+ Nemo screenings.) The original Nemo movie's success spawned a sequel which is set to hit theaters in 2016… So, don't get too excited yet. 




American horror/thriller film 1975



Of course Jaws has to come in at #1 on the list. This iconic shark is known by all despite their age or gender. The original Jaws movie eventually led to 3 sequels.
