Shirley Jones sings "The Whale Song"
4 March 2014 | by (Youngstown,Ohio) – See all my reviews

"Whatever Happened to Moby Dick?" is an ecology friendly episode, notable chiefly for granting Shirley Jones her very first lead vocal, exquisitely rendered, although "The Whale Song," composed by Dan Peyton and Marty Kaniger, remains sadly unreleased to this day. Danny hits upon the idea of having a whale sing on the group's next charity single, if they can foil the greedy Flicker (Dub Taylor), who insists on half the profits for himself. The cast includes Bert Convy (back as a different character in "A Likely Candidate" and "The Eleven-Year Itch"), Howard Cosell (as himself), and George O'Hanlon, remembered as both Joe McDoakes and George Jetson on THE JETSONS, whose dancing bear isn't wearing his taps.
