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]
Narrator: And you, faithful little friend, don't be too sad, because miracles never really die. And somewhere in wherever heaven is reserved for creatures of the deep, Willie is still singing, in a hundred ...

Alternate Versions

In the original movie release, the first segment was "The Martins And The Coys". This was a fictionalized telling of the famous Hatfield and McCoy feud. When the movie was first shown on television this segment was included. When the movie was released on video and DVD, this segment was eliminated since Disney felt that it was too violent for current audiences since it showed guns and people being shot. See more »

A Small Fantasia
18 July 2009 | by RindianaSee all my reviews

One of Walt's early package films and not bad at that! Some segments are cloyingly hokey, of course, but most shorts are surprisingly playful and charming. The highlights: "The Martins and the Coys" is full of stereotyping and comic gunplay and simply fun to watch; "Casey at the Bat" is a whirlwind of poem recitation; the two Benny Goodman segments feature nice tunes and "Peter and the Wolf" and, particularly, "The Whale Who Wanted To Sing At the Met" are two of Disney's best cartoons.

Just skip the padding and enjoy this compilation!
