The Landshark was a character in the sketch show Saturday Night Live. He was created in response to people's fear of sharks after the release of the 1975 film Jaws. In the sketches, he would go knock on the door of a woman's house, which is his preferred prey. When the woman asks who it is knocking, the shark replies that he came to deliver a "candygram." The woman would then foolishly open the door, and the Landshark grabs her while the theme from Jaws played.
