No Shark Week is complete without several shows about the prehistoric megalodon. That got me wondering about the relationship between modern cartoon friendly sharks and their own epic history. I decided they think of the mighty sharks of the past the same way we think about dinosaurs. And that means if you are friendly shark and a kid at heart, you might very well have a stuffed toy megalodon.
Thresher’s Megalodon is definitely based on my own much loved IKEA shark.
