Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
Serious-looking little Finston would do anything to make a whale happy, and it' s easy to see why: whales show their appreciation not by laughing, but by spitting water at the comedian. Finston, however, soon learns he has a very dry sense of humor. After disappointing shows on the high seas, he takes his act to marine aquariums, and finds an even tougher crowd. When he finally realizes that what whales really like are silly faces and goofy dances, he winds up getting doused.
