A Whale Of A "Tail"

I was tickled to add this cutie of a whale bank to my collection of vintage banks recently:
He's awfully sweet with his flowers and his big eyes and his flippy tail, isn't he?
And since I love to throw in a Disney reference whenever possible, if you are familiar with the Disney song, below, you probably got my (intended) pun in my post title?
"Got a whale of a tail to tell 'ya lads, a whale of a tale or two. 'Bout the flappin' fish and the girls I've loved on nights like this with the moon above - a whale of a tale and it's all true; I swear by my tattoo".
 Kirk Douglas sang it in Walt Disney's "20,000 Leagues Under The Sea".
I swear by my tattoo.

Love the bank. Hmm... not sure if I know that song, definitely know the movie though.

He is really cute. Yes, I know the song, love it! It reminds me of a movie when I was very little (before Heidi and Lori probably) and I think it was a Disney movie, and there was a whale in it, I only have a very teeny tiny memory of being at the drive-in, and seeing a big (blue?) whale up on the screen (animated) and singing, I think? Anyway, brings back memories. Love T
