"NA NA na NAAAH na! Your name is Ish-mael!"
"Waaah! No it izzint, no it izzint, that's just what they call me. You whales are mean. I'm gonna tell Moby!"
I picture it as a cross between Tiny Toons Adventures and Moby-Dick, with pint-size versions of the narrator, Ahab (the ringleader and occasional bully), and Queequeg (a child but, of course, adult-sized); the Peaquod would be a wrecked rowboat stuck in the sand and Moby Dick? Their nanny, of course, on whom they play no end of pranks....
Supporting cast includes the other characters from the book -- Starbuck, Stubb, Flask, the remainder of the harpooners (armed with slingshots? Peashooters?), etc. and a flock of unruly whale calves. (Or would that be a pod?)
Madcap hijinks ensue.
Horribly, it would probably even work.
Bonus: In every episode, they lose Bulkington!
