Wailing Whale is the seventh/last story arc from the second season of Rocky and His Friends. It was broadcast on ABC during the 1960-61 television season. It depicts Rocky J. Squirrel, Bullwinkle J. Moose, and Captain Peter Peachfuzz searching for Maybe Dick, the Whaling Whale.

Plot

Maybedick
Maybe Dick, a legendary ship-devouring whale from (very questionable) seafaring lore, has begun ravaging the shipping industry. Powerful magnate Pericles Parnassus recruits our friends from Frostbite Falls on a mission to fish for the monster with a telephone pole. However, Parnassus has in fact loaded the ship full of TNT, recruiting the hapless heroes as unwitting suicide bombers.
