DEBUT 1980

A shark sings "Shark Song," a song about how beautiful and white his teeth are. (First: Episode 1446)

The shark would later appear in several other sketches on Sesame Street, notably an Ernie and Bert segment from season 13 when Ernie shows Bert his "fish call" as they are on a fishing trip, to lure fish into their boat. When Bert tries it, the shark jumps into the boat and asks, "You called?" and does Ernie's distinctive laugh.

Other appearances include Global Grover's segment for Jamaica, A Brief History of Motion Pictures Episode 4049, Guy Smiley's First Annual Reunion of All the Things that Start with That Special Sound "SH" (First: Episode 2564), and the View-Master home video Let's Play School.
