TUGS is set in the 1920's in the fictional place of Bigg City Port. There, a variety of tugboats, ships and engines work to keep the massive port going. The two main tugboat compainies, the Star Tugs and the Z-Stacks, are constantly fighting over obtaining the contracts to keep their companies going. Along the way, Ten Cents from the Star Tugs and his friends get into a lot of crazy adventures! From collapsing bridges to fiery docks, green eyed theives to sinking tramp steamers, there is always something going on!
TUGS is an excellent show. It is created by Thomas director David Mitton and model maker Robert D. Cardona, and they did a great job. They made a nice show that is for teenagers but any age could enjoy. Also, they use drama and proper action unlike in most shows that try to do something like this in modern days. David's direction was excellent and I now that he has departed that they remastered his work and produce it on a DVD so that more people know about this show! Top marks from me.
