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>

Another Closet Canadian Production
23 April 2006 | by (Dundalk, Canada) – See all my reviews

Minerva Urecal played a tough, but lovable Annie in this cheap, but well-made show. The last episodes I saw were so ripped up, its a wonder you could make sense of the story. Would've presented better with a better quality print, so will probably never see light on DVD. So generic was this series, most viewers never knew it was filmed entirely in Canada.

Made during a busy time for syndicated Canadian TV series' such as "Last Of The Mohicans," "Cannonball," "The Littlest Hobo" (1st series, not the version made in the 1970s) and "B" films "Flaming Frontiers" and "Wolf Dog." I heard from a child extra in "Annie" that Walter Sande was a great practical joker and talented at sleight-of-hand, which entertained cast and crew alike during downtime.

The reason the series was filmed in Canada was that labor and resources were cheaper and marketing possibilities wider. Inexplicably, the bonanza ended by 1960. It took decades for the Canadian film industry to recover, but recover it did, thanks largely to productions like "Tugboat Annie."
