Theodore Tugboat Cargo Game: A Tugboat Adventure Around the Big Harbor

board game

The Canadian children's television series "Theodore Tugboat" ran from 1993 until 2001, recreating many of the places and names from the real Halifax Harbor in Nova Scotia. The series, very similar in format to "Thomas the Tank Engine," was very well received and still generates revenue. International Playthings produced a board game in 1999, in which players take the part of the major characters in the series, who are all tugboats, and make the rounds of the happy harbor.
