Theodore Tugboat is a Canadian children’s television show. It’s similar to Thomas and Friends, a children’s show about living locomotives. In fact, many episodes of those two shows were directed by the same person.
In the show, there’s a human harbormaster who serves as the narrator and several tugboat puppets that constitute the main characters. Among them is Theodore Tugboat, for whom the show is named.

In 2000, the production company for Theodore the Tugboat built the Theodore Too, a full-scale replica of the character. It travelled through the waters of the Maritime provinces as well as the Great Lakes, participating in public shows. Now it works as a tour craft in the harbor of Halifax, Nova Scotia.
