C P O Sharkey
For two seasons (1976ï ¢ï¾ ï¾ 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, and his aim was true. Rickles' 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.
