Storyline

Tugboat Annie makes her living piloting her tugboat through the treacherous waters of the Pacific Northwest. As if the forces of nature didn't make her job difficult enough, she must also deal with competition from Captain Horatio Bullwinkle, a rival tugboat pilot who constantly tries to steal jobs out from under Annie. Though Bullwinkle has a fearsome reputation, Annie is more than a match for him, whether the challenges require brains or brawn. Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

Smoke and steam on the water...
20 June 2005 | by (Waukegan, IL.) – See all my reviews

It's been so many decades since I last saw this show that it all seems a bit dim. Still, I remember it as being just one more of those wonderfully watchable comedy / adventures from the 50s. The rather frightening visage of Minerva Urecal in the title role has never faded from memory, though it once took three hours of TOT ( tip of tongue ) phenomena to finally recall her name.

This was no knock off of the 30s movies. Minerva was a lot tougher than Marie Dressler - she could probably have chewed up and spat out the latter - and Walter Sande was hardly Wallace Beery. Still, this was an entertaining and thoroughly enjoyable program that had a peculiarly endearing quality. [ OK, the story involved the salty captain of the Narcissus ( Annie ) and her constant battles to keep the scheming Capt. Horatio Bullwinkle and his Salamander from stealing jobs from her and her crew. That was pretty much the extent of it. ] Hopefully, it will pop up again one of these days...assuming it already hasn't.
