Grampus

Real Version

Grampus is a fictional character who appeared in the 1988 television series TUGS, created by the producers of Thomas the Tank Engine and Friends.

Grampus is a 'midget' submarine once owned by the navy. He is a close friend with the Star Fleet and has helped them out in various situations. He appeared for the first time in Pirate, in which he helped to prove Ten Cents' innocence. In Regatta, he was nearly blown up by Bluenose the naval tug having been branded as 'too old' for further service. He speaks with a Central English accent (with a noticeable lisp).

He was thankfully swiftly rescued by the Star Fleet. On the same day, he was bought by Captain Star and joined the Star Tugs as their first star submarine.

Grampus also has a tendency to blow water in the tug's faces, mostly at Bluenose in "Regatta/4th of July"

Grampus was voiced by British actor Lee Cornes.

Grampus also appeared in Salty's Lighthouse. In that series, he was voiced by Brad Swaille.

Izzy Gomez

Real Version

Izzy Gomez is a fictional character who appeared in the 1988 television series TUGS, created by the producers of Thomas the Tank Engine and Friends.

Izzy Gomez is a large tramp steamer from Mexico and a regular sight in Bigg City Port, bringing in large loads of imported bananas.

Distinguishable by his stereotypical Mexican accent and sombrero, Izzy is infamous for trying (and failing) to convince the tug boats to give him a cheap tow into port. He has landed himself in various troublesome situations, but once redeemed himself by testifying on Sunshine's behalf when the latter of accused of sabotaging a liner docking operation. During his time in Bigg City Port, Izzy has been subjected to ghosts and potential sinking. He is close friends with Warrior of the Stars, and appears to have a love/hate relationship with Zorran On his hull he comes from a place that is in Spanish but in English it means big port. Maybe sort of equal to bigg city.

Izzy also appeared on some episodes of Thomas the Tank Engine and Friends, as a cargo delivery ship. In that series, his face and hat were removed to make him look less characteristic. His modified model (along with Zebedee's) is currently on display at Drayton Manor.

According to sources, Izzy is voiced by Mike Mulloy.

Izzy appeared in a few episodes of Salty's Lighthouse. In "The Earthquake" an earthquake tosses him onto some rocks and the Star Fleet work together to keep him from sinking. In another episode, he tries to be a speedboat for a day, but goes too fast and crashes on the rocks.

Lillie Lightship

Lillie Lightship

Real Version

Lillie Lightship is a fictional character who appeared in the 1988 television series TUGS, created by the producers of Thomas the Tank Engine and Friends.

Lillie Lightship is a special and much-loved lightship, placed at Dender Rocks to warn shipping of potential hazard. The Star Fleet have the contract to provide her with the necessary fuel to keep her light shining.

She appeared for the first time in a small cameo role in 'Sunshine', although she had more important roles in later episodes, particularly '4th of July/Regatta', in which she was hit by a blinded tramp steamer that made a hole in her side. She was saved by Grampus, and repairs at Lucky's Yard allowed her to view the annual regatta. Lillie's light failed for a second time in Bigg Freeze, which meant that the Star Fleet needed to find another source to guide Hercules into the estuary with the liner Vienna. Some say there is a special relationship between Hercules and Lillie. She is voiced by Britt Allcroft.

She also appeared on Salty's Lighthouse in a few episodes. In that series, She was voiced by Venus Terzo.
