"The Whale Hunt" is a 16 minute film that aired at the Studio Ghibli museum and also played at the 2002 New York International Children's Film Festival. The film itself is a departure from more realistic-looking Ghibli works, such as "Spirited Away"; rather than being grounded in reality, the characters look cartoon-y and the world in which they live is painted in bright pastels. This helps to invoke the spirit of childish imagination which is a major theme in "The Whale Hunt".
