Synopsis: “For two seasons (1976 1978) and 37 episodes, Don Rickles brought his distinctive brand of comedy to NBC television as the star of CPO Sharkey. His targets were many, his aim was true. His character, CPO Sharkey, was politically incorrect before the term existed! As a 24-year naval veteran, CPO Sharkey had pretty much seen and heard it all. The recruits he whipped into shape at the San Diego naval training center received most of his shards of wisdom. The men of Company 144 may have been hockey pucks, but they were his hockey pucks ready, willing, and able to endure one verbal shark attack after another.”
