Saturday Morning's Forgotten Heroes: Touche Turtle in Whale of a Tale (1962)

In his very first adventure, Touche Turtle (Bill Thompson) is recruited by Captain Ahab (Don Messick) to battle Moby Dick. Alan Reed (Dum Dum) doubles as narrator of "Whale of a Tale":

5 years later, Hanna-Barbera would adapt Moby as a hero, with no connections to his literary roots. Unfortunately, his "super whale" phase lasted just 1 season of original episodes.

Rating: B.
