TUGS

Show Summary

Welcome to the TUGS guide at TV.com. This show was made by Robert D. Cardona and David Mitton who were the directors of 'Thomas The Tank Engine & Friends'. This show ran for 13 episodes.

It was set in the fictional Bigg City Port during the 1920s. It was about two rival tugboat companies. The heroic Star Fleet run by Captain Star who was the narrator of the show and the villanous Z Stacks run by the devious Captain Zero.

The members of the Star Fleet are 2 harbour switchers; the spunky Ten Cents and his friend Sunshine who joins them in the first episode. 3 harbour tugs; the strong Scottish Big Mac, the wise old Welsh O.J. and the simple-minded but strong Warrior. 1 railway tug; the obnoxious snob Top Hat and 1 ocean tug; the much conceited Hercules.

The Z Stack members were 3 harbour tugs; their mean leader Zorran,and Zebedee the cool/level-headed character, who occasionally helped the Star Tugs and Zak, the quiet follower, yet still nasty... The other members were the two bumbling harbour switchers; Zip and Zug.

Both these Fleets would sometimes compete against each other for contracts or help ships or vessels.moreless
