for the longest time i kept seeing a whale with a red tail even i knew it would be a hippo from the title (the "whale" even has a little mouth at r32c3)
great job
no guessing
after line logic (make sure to get the black pixel at r11c13) i used edge logic on the 4 clues in rows 1-2 to get 3 dots in each row at c1-3 and line logic solved the rest

I didn't know that song, and thought it might be 'all I want for Christmas is my two front teeth"
at least I got the holiday right...

Great puzzle. For me, it wasn’t logically solvable, and quite difficult. Thanks
