Mr. JAWS

By Dickie Goodman

Dickie Goodman was a creator of novelty records and is considered a pioneer in sampling with his series of “break-in” records beginning with The Flying Saucer in 1956.

In 1975, Goodman peaked at #4 on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart with “Mr. Jaws,” a break-in record in which he interviews several characters from JAWS. The record became Goodman’s biggest-selling hit record.

Mr. JAWS Song Lyrics:

We are here on the beach where a giant shark has just eaten a girl swimmer!
Well Mr. Jaws, how was it?

“Dynomite!”

And what did she say when you grabbed her?

“Please, Mr. Please.”

I know sharks are stupid, but what did you think when you took that first bite?

“How sweet it is.”

Mr. Jaws, before you swim out to sea, have you anything else to say?

“Why can’t we be friends, why can’t we be friends?”

With me now is the local sheriff.
Sheriff Brody, the shark will be back for lunch. What do you intend to do?

“Do a little dance, make a little love, get down tonight!”

Just arriving is oceanographer Matt Hooper.
Sir, if someone is attacked by a shark, what should they do?

“Do the hustle”

We are going aboard the fishing boat of Captain Quint.
Captain, will you be able to catch this giant shark?

“I will!” “I will!” “I will!” (Thank you, captain.) “I will!” (Captain?) “I will!” (Captain!)
“I will!” (Captain!)

When you catch one of these sharks, what do you feel like?

“Like a Rhinestone Cowboy.”

We’ve just sighted the shark again. He’s coming straight for us!
Captain Quint is shouting something at him!

“Get you baby one of these nights!”

Hey Jaws, the captain says he’s going to catch you! What do you think of that?

“Jive talkin’!”

Uh-oh, here he comes again! (Gun shots) They’ve hit him!
Mr. Jaws, why doesn’t anything seem to hurt you?

“Big boys don’t cry, big boys don’t cry.”

He’s coming right onto the boat! Mr. Jaws, why are you grabbing my hand?

“Wouldn’t you give your hand to a friend?”

No wait! Mr. Jaws! That’s not the way this record is supposed to end! Help! Help!
(Drowning noises, Theme from “Jaws”)

JAWED Comic : Page 12

Peter Nielsen, an artist and JAWS fan from Denmark, created a JAWS Parody comic called JAWED. Here’s page 12 of his comic:

Custom JAWS Action Figures

Mike Lorenz created some amazing custom JAWS figures of Brody, Quint, and Hooper. Here’s some info about the figures from Mike:

“It took 2 action figures to make 1 figure. Brody comes with a spear, rifle, pistol, and air tank. I did him in the classic outfit he had on at the end of the movie. Quint comes with a spear-gun, fishing rod, and a machete. He was done in the outfit when he first sees the shark. Hooper comes with 2 barrels and a 35mm camera. He was done in the outfit near the end of the movie. On the front of each package are the words…it’s as if God created the devil himself and gave him ….Jaws.

I don’t like to tell all my secrets for making my custom figures, but I’ll tell you what I can. All of the figures I used modeling clay on. Quint’s army jacket and shirt is all molded in clay, pockets and all. He also has Quint in black over the right upper pocket. Hooper’s sweatshirt is also done from modeling clay. His hair is done in the clay. I tried to get it so the hair is wavey and all over the place. Brody’s gun belt/buckle is made from clay as well. The air tank is made from modeling clay. The spear-gun, machete, camera, fishing rod and spear are all custom made. I used balsa wood, clay, putty, and glue.

For the packaging I went with the 25th anniversary picture. All the cards have the character’s pic of the outfit they are wearing as the figure. It also has their name on the card as well as what the figure comes with.”

JAWS in American Cinematographer – July 1975

Here’s an article that appeared in the July 1975 issue of American Cinematographer magazine, entitled, “Making it in Film”:

Highlights of the Peter Benchley Collection at BU

Long-time Forum regular Dana Goudreault visited the Gottlieb Research Center at Boston University and got to check out the Peter Benchley Collection there. Dana went there with Jim Beller, webmaster of JAWScollector.com. Here’s some pictures of what they saw in the Benchley collection.

Dana said, “Here are a couple pics from the Peter Benchley collection at the Gottlieb Research Center at BU. Jim and I paid a visit yesterday and enjoyed ourselves for nearly four hours, browsing through the history of the making of JAWS in a way that transported you back to the good ol’ days like never before. I encourage anyone and everyone to contact the center and arrange a visit when you’re in the Greater Boston area.”

A special thanks to Dana and Jim for sharing these pictures!

Hooper is Cheney : Richard Dreyfuss in W.

Oliver Stone’s movie about George W. Bush, “W.” opens on October 17th and features Academy Award winner Richard Dreyfuss as Vice President Dick Cheney. The Cheney scene is at about 52 seconds into the trailer. This is Dreyfuss’ most prominent role since 2006’s Poseidon.

JAWS in 30 Seconds With Bunnies

This has been out for a while, but new visitors to the site likely have not seen it. Flash animator Jennifer Shaiman started out with The Exorcist in 30 Seconds with Bunnies in 2005 and it became on online phenomenon. More “Bunnies” shorts followed, including our favorite movie, JAWS. We tried VERY hard to be able to interview Jennifer for TSISW and to put a clip of the short in the documentary, but it unfortunately did not work out. Check out the short below:

You can also view the short (and many more) on Jennifer’s site, Angry Alien Productions.

Shark Man of Montauk

It’s been a couple weeks since Frank Mundus (an inspiration for Quint) has passed away, but I found an interesting retrospective article about him and his book, Captain Frank Mundus, Shark Man: Master Hunter of the Deep. Here’s what the post author had to say about the book:

“That book was full of tales of Mundus as a youth, learning to fish off Long Island, getting in scrapes with the sea and its sometimes dangerous denizens. Deep dark, cold waters is where Mundus explored his limits and that of the beasts he sought. Shark Man was a book I read over and over again. I think the last time I picked it up was when I was 15 or 16. This was tales of danger and excitement, this book excited my imagination and got me wishing I was out there, hard living and hard playing (I know I was just 7, but you have to appreciate I had a vivid imagination.)”.

You can read the full article here.

Fifty Years A Hooker (great title!)


Bad Hat Harry Productions

Over at Shark In A Bottle, there’s a new post up about Bad Hat Harry Productions, which is famous JAWS fan Bryan Singer’s production company. Singer, director of The Usual Suspects, X-Men and Superman Returns did a memorable interview for us for The Shark is Still Working.

You can view it on our Video Page.
