"One morrow plus another morrow makes two morrows!"
— Foduck telling a joke to Theodore, True Blue Friends, first season

  • Type: Safety Tug
  • V-word: Vigilant

Foduck is the Big Harbour's "safety tug". He wears a red fire hat and is equipped with extra bright spotlights, a rotating transceiver and a fire hose.


Foduck the Vigilant is always very serious and takes his work seriously. He is the Big Harbour's fire safety tug and he is always prepared to put out fires with his special hoses or use his sonar machine to track down any dangerous rocks or obstacles that may be in the water. Like all the other tugs, Foduck loves to journey out to the open ocean. Foduck is a "V" tug (a tug with a "V" word that is fully qualified to make ocean voyages) like George and Emily. Even though he is able to travel on the ocean, he is content with staying in the harbour to keep it safe. Foduck usually doesn't express his feelings, but deep inside, he has a soft spot for everything and everyone in the Big Harbour.[1] He once wanted to be called Frederick in Hank's New Name.



  • The original Foduck model is on display at the Maritime Museum of the Atlantic and unlike the other models him, Emily, and George have their propellers showing.
  • Some of Foduck's facial expressions were offered for sale on ebay.
  • Foduck's horn originated from Pacific Princess from The Love Boat. It was then used later for Clifford the Big Red Dog.
  • In the first season Foduck's eyebrows were covered by his helmet, then in season 2 when the models had a makeover they made the helmet go higher and thus exposing his eyebrows.
  • In the Norwegian version, Foduck is called "Freddy."
  • In the Swedish version, Foduck is called "Fredrick."


  • ERTL model (press 'N' roll, bath toy, diecast; all discontinued)
  • Brio (discontinued)
