    “No whales allowed.” Since most kids these days think Snoopy is just a mascot for MetLife & Cedar Fair Parks, but have never seen an episode of Peanuts, I wonder if they’ll even get that reference.

    This feels like a bad sequel to the other Titanic movie that spawned Tentacolino.

      I dunno. The Charlie Brown Christmas and Halloween specials are still on every year so you may be wrong about that.

      Also that Titanic movie also had talking sea creatures and a vaguely eco-minded Save The Whales message. What a bizarre coincidence.

        Statistics say most kids these days don’t watch TV at all because they’re glued to internet & apps. Nielsen Ratings says more & more houses drop cable every year.

    Does someone at Goodtimes has a time machine or some mirror into other universes, so they knew that one day Phelous would make a good video about their terrible cartoon? Because that’s the only way I could see them justifying making this. Usually the answer is easy: “cheap cash in”. But here… what are they cashing in? Don’t recall any Disney or Universal adaptaions of Moby Dick, at least around the time this was made, and it’s not like there is a huge demand for kids versions of Moby Dick. Is there?

      It came out two years before the Patrick Stewart version, so they weren’t trying to cash-in off of that.

      Maybe they just spotted a gap in the “pointless cartoon adaptation of something well-known in the public domain” and really wanted to get in first?

    This might be the weirdest thing you’ve reviewed Phelous. Good shit.

    Sp, animate Jekyll and Hyde, animated Moby Dick… What incredibly inappropriate classic novel will be turned into a children’s film next? Paradise Lost? Les Miserables? The Hunchback of Notre… Oh, wait…

      I wanna see an animated adaptation of Frankenstein that has a heartwarming ending with Victor and the monster becoming friends.

      Making horror & adult action movies into kids TV series was a popular trend of the 80s & 90s, so it’s not surprising they did it back then.
