This partly informative, partly entertaining, one-hour animated cartoon from Jannik Hastrup tells the story of two young whales, sensible and wise Sally (voice of Helle Hertz) and reckless Samson (voice of Jesper Klein). Both whales learn about the natural dangers of the ocean, as well as the threats to their existence from oil spills and nuclear waste. As they are getting older and more experienced, Samson one day decides to go off in search of his ancestor, the famous Moby Dick, known to be living somewhere in a hidden city like the fabled Atlantis. Moby Dick has the secret to the survival of his species, and so it is important that Samson find him and learn this secret before the dangers of the ocean become much worse. This television-style fare is strictly for the moppet set.
