Fun With Scissors - part 44
Here's Hanna-Barbera's Moby Dick. Instead of taunting Ahab, he rescued two boys cast adrift, and helped them in adventures against all manner of strange undersea criminals. Like a number of Hanna-Barbera cartoons, such as "Jonny Quest" and "Frankenstein Jr." this was a boy's wish-fullfillment series. There were two boys this time, Tom and Tub (guess which one was overweight?)and besides having a giant albino whale for a pal, they had a pet seal named Scooby (like the more famous Scooby, this one was voiced by Don Messick, who also voiced Moby Dick).
