The Whale Tale is loosely based on the "Friendship" number from episode 519 of The Muppet Show.

In this story, the Muppets go on a picnic on a boat. When the boat gets turned over, Kermit and Robin the Frog decide to go exploring underwater, where they meet Molly and Melville who are hiding from whale hunters.


  • The book's author and illustrator, John Stevenson, also drew the storyboards for the "Friendship" number on The Muppet Show.
