krazy koati

They call him Jabber, Jabber, Jabber, Jabber, Jabber, Jabber, Jabberjaw

[ Responding to the curious lack of a proper Jabberjaw episode guide on Wikipedia or on the web in general, I sat down to watch every episode and summarize what happens in it. I failed. I could only find 13 of the 16 episodes on YouTube, and the series is going through a stretch of not being on Boomerang for some reason. Possibly they're trying to encourage that Fangface episode guide we've been waiting for. Well, here's what I have, since I'm rather busy with other matters this week. ]

Bubbles and Biff are kidnapped, but Jabberjaw traces them to Lo's hollow mountain and nose-drills into it. Jabberjaw and the Gorgon are repeatedly shrunk and enlarged until the villain and his monster are caught, shrunk, and the growth raw destroyed.

Trivia: Herman Hollerith was nominated by John Hyde for membership in the Royal Statistical Society on 22 November 1894, nomination paper number 2854. Hyde submitted it without the seconder required, but Dr John Shaw Billings (who had suggested a census machine to Hollerith and was an honorary member) added his name to the application.
