TUGS was a British children's television series first broadcast in 1988. It was created by the producers of Thomas the Tank Engine & Friends, Robert D. Cardona, Peter Lord, David Mitton, Steve Box Nick Park and D.B. Sweeney.

Tugs is about two anthromorphized tug fleets, the Star Fleet and the Z Stacks, who compete against each other in the fictional Bigg City Port during the 1920s. The Star Fleet are honourable and hard-working, the Z-Stacks are underhanded and devious.

The series is noted for the high quality of its animation, which used detailed live-action models and Stop-Motion (much like the sister series Thomas the Tank Engine & Friends).

History

After two successful seasons of Thomas the Tank Engine & Friends, Robert D. Cardona, Peter Lord, Nick Park, D.B. Sweeney, Steve Box and David Mitton decided to create a new television series - TUGS. The series is filmed at Shepperton Studios in 1988 using a similar animation process to its railway-based sister series. The only notable difference was that the boat models were pulled by transparent strings. Remote control devices were used to power mechanisms within the models, such as the moving eyes.

Tugs first aired on Children's ITV in Britain, and then on Australia's ABC network. The rights to the series were sold and it's currently not known who owns them, It is possible that the rights were given to Robert Cardona as he allowed the series to become Salty's Lighthouse.

The models and sets were sold to Britt Allcroft, whose new company used the models, (albeit heavily modified) for Thomas the Tank Engine & Friends from 1991 onwards. They are still used in current seasons.

David Mitton continued to work on Thomas until he retired after the seventh series in 2003, whilst Robert D. Cardona emigrated to Canada and devised a similar program about tugboats called Theodore Tugboat.

Episodes

Thirteen episodes of TUGS were made. The series was "darker" in tone than many other television programs aimed at children. The plots often featured crime, violence and destruction, with punishment given to the characters carrying out these actions. The dialogue, too, was quite mature for a children's series. It featured slang and terminology that might these days be considered "over the heads" of young children. Characters would often insult each other, as well as using historical and maritime terms.

Trivia

  • Two of the Z-Stacks, Zebedee and Zip, appeared in an episode from the fifth series of Thomas the Tank Engine & Friends called Something in the Air. The models had been heavily modified (including the removal of 'head' and hat) to look less characteristic, and more contemporary in appearance to the setting of the story.
  • "High Tide" was the only episode to include Zak in main plot and focus.
  • Captain Star (as the narrator), Ten Cents, Sunshine,Big Mac and Top Hat were the only characters who appeared in every episode.
  • "Up River" is the only episode not to feature the Z stacks
  • Sunshine's smoke stack was originally white and he is from the salvage company in Up River. In the pilot episode, Sunshine's stack was white at first, but at the end the episode, he is painted star tug yellow, this was obviously true and at the end of the episode, Sunshine had officially joined the Star tug fleet and would have reason to be painted in their colours.
  • A second season was talked about, but (as of yet) nothing has been done.
  • Ghosts was the only episode to use cartoon animation.
  • On the Sunshine/Pirate and Munitions/4th of July videos Captain Star was called Captain Starr with two Rs (as in Ringo Starr).
  • The engines (such as Puffa) and the tugs are of the same gauge as the Thomas the Tank Engine models
  • "Jinxed" and High Tide are the only episodes to use stock footage
  • Captain Zero only ever appeared in 3 episodes. Two of which he had speaking roles.
  • Hercules was absent for 6 episodes in the series - more than any other main character. Warrior and OJ starred in 12 individual episodes - being missing in 1 episode each respectively.
  • Zorran was absent in 1 episode, Zebedee and Zak were absent in 4 episodes each, Zug was absent in 3 episodes and Zip was absent in 2 episodes.
  • There is an American spin-off of TUGS called Salty's Lighthouse, in which several characters have different voices, some have different names, and some male characters are considered female. Despite this, Salty's Lighthouse is not official canon of TUGS.
  • A Campaign is underway at Sodor Island Forums to get TUGS onto DVD.
