Little Elias lives in a unique world of interesting animated characters. The little rescue boat starts his career in the charming coastal village of Cozy Cove. Among the many colorful characters he encounters are the rough and tough deep sea fishing boat Trawler, who only cares about making money. The Singing Boathouses who comment on each day's events; and old Smacky who is mostly concerned about his tired hull and often falls asleep at sea. The rescue helicopter Helinor is a touch little gal who's good at straightening things out. And far out by the open seas stands the lighthouse Big Blinky who's been there as long as anyone can remember. Slowly but surely, Elias proves himself both trustworthy and brave, as he goes about saving one boat in dire straits after the other.

15 April 2007 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

This animated series is fantastic. My 2 year old absolutely loves it. It is like an aquatic version of Thomas the Tank Engine, except with talking and singing boats. The ten minute segments (like Thomas the Tank Engine and Bob the Builder episodes) are a perfect length and the tunes suitably repetitive for young children. The characters are all very engaging, the plot lines interesting and the visual effects are just great. It is available in several languages, but unfortunately none of them are English. Although this doesn't diminish my young child's enthusiasm for Elias and his friends, it does make my life difficult when he asks me what they are saying! I strongly recommend the series, and hope its producers recognise its international appeal soon and make a version available in English!
