A Whale of a Sailor (Larry Orenstein/Ray Brenner) was a mild take-off on the Disney song Whale of a Tale from 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea. It was cast as a rare all-guys number during the second season. Though several of the girls formed an on-camera audience and even had lines, all the singing and dancing was done by Lonnie Burr, Bobby Burgess, Larry Larsen, with Jay-Jay Solari as the officer ("caterwauling like Alfalfa" as he puts it). Dennis Day is the first mate. with Tommy Cole, Doreen Tracey, Annette Funicello, Cheryl Holdridge, Cubby O'Brien, Margene Storey, and Charley Laney making up the dockside admirers.
