Quotes

Narrator: The tugboat, for its size, is the most powerful craft afloat. And the Star tugs are the power behind the docks and waterways that make up the Bigg City Port. This... is Tugs.

Crazy Credits

Throughout its entire run, none of the voice cast were ever listed in the opening or closing credits. So, naturally it has led to much debate over who voices who in the series, and certain cast members are ambiguous and unconfirmed by another member of the cast or crew See more »

Very Good
14 February 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Tugs is from the creators of Thomas the Tank Engine, which features the 2 main tug companies at the Big City Port, the Stars and the Zeroes. But just because it is was made by the people who made the adventures of the bright blue engine on the Island of Sodor, in my mind is for the slightly more grown up viewer and not as much for children as they might think. The adventures are odd at times but the series is a very good one. Unfortunately it is not shown on the TV anymore and they only made one series consisting of 13 episodes, but like Famlty Towers, because only a few episodes were made, that means that they will always live on and never get old, but instead become timeless classics
