Did You Know?


In "The Whale Who Wanted to Sing at the Met", all of the operatic vocals - from the bass up through soprano, and even the chorus - were sung by Nelson Eddy. By tinkering with his home recording equipment (his father was a machinist), Eddy was able to sing and record sextets with himself for the soundtrack. See more »

Narrator: [Willie impaled by a harpoon by Prof. Tetti-Tatti] Now Willie will never sing at the met. But don't be too harsh on Tetti-Tatti; he just didn't understand. You see, Willie's singing was a miracle, and people aren't used to miracles.
[to Willie's seagull friend who mourns the whale's loss]

A classic censored
4 August 2000 | by (Aversa, Italy) – See all my reviews

This is one of my Disney favorities, a collection of ten musical cartoons including such classics as "Peter and the wolf", "Willie the operatic whale" and "Blue Bayou"(this was at first planned for the music of Debussy's "Clair de lune" in Fantasia). And there also WAS the cartoon I prefer: "The Martin and The Coys", comical history of a war between two families in the old America. Now I've buyed the new video of this film and I've discovered that this beautiful episode has been completely cut out. Shame on you Disney! Classics must not be touched! It's very sad that,when we are under the continue pressure of Pokemons and other violence and sex from TV, Disney cuts his comic fairy tales because children could believe that the shooting fight between the Martins and the Coys is real (and repeat it,perhaps in schools?)SHAME ON YOU!!!!!!!!!!!
