Professor Tomaso Tetti-Tatti, also known as Professor Tetti-Tatti or just Tetti-Tatti, is a character from Disney's 8th full-length animated feature film Make Mine Music. He is the main antagonist in the segment, The Whale Who Wanted to Sing at the Met

He was voiced by the late Nelson Eddy.


Tetti Tatti is a Impresario, meaning he owns a theatre and searches Opera singers to sing. Upon hearing rumors of sailors hearing opera singing when Willie the Sperm Whale swims by, Tetti Tatti gets the idea from the story of Jonah and the whale, that there must be an opera singer inside the whale singing for help.

Managing a ship and hiring a crew, Willie became intent on killing Willie the Sperm Whale, who he believes is nothing but a monster holding the singer captive.

Willie is actually a kind, gentle creature who only wants to become famous for his singing voice. Willie dreams of singing in the opera one day and practices for other creatures in the sea.

When Tetti-Tatti and his crew finally find Willie, the crew is captivated by Willie's voice, realizing there is no opera singer inside and begs the captain not to kill him. Unfortunately Tetti-Tatti doesn't understand and continues trying to "rescue" the singer by trying to hunt Willie.

After Tetti-Tatti harpooned Willie, Tetti-Tatti's Sailors angrily jumped on their leader and restrain him. Afterwards it is implied that Tetti-Tatti found out that there was no opera singer meaning he had murdered Willie and rescued no one.

The narrator softens the blow by telling the audience not to be mad at Tetti-Tatti because he simply didn't understand, and also that Willie continues to sing in heaven.


  • Tetti Tatti is the first Disney villain whose minions turn on him.
    • The other beings are Scar from The Lion King, and Dr. Facilier from The Princess and the Frog.
