"My name is tugboat. And I'm a Hank!"
— Hank, Theodore and the Ice Ship, third season

  • Type: Harbour Tug

Hank (a.k.a the Volcano) is a harbour tug who wears a blue toque and is the smallest, funniest, fastest tugboat in the Big Harbour.


Hank's job is, like Theodore, to be a harbour tug, moving barges (usually from the side instead of the front unlike the other tugs) and being the pusher in the job of moving big ships and boats.


He loves to make funny faces and noises as a way of getting attention. He can be very sensitive too, and usually gets ignored for being the smallest. But whenever he feels down, he always turns to Theodore for help or guidance. But out of all the other tugboats, Hank is special because of his good humour and nature to learn and grow from his mistakes. He works with Bonnavista Barge, Shediac, and once he stayed up to see Owan. He once wanted to be called Henry in the episode Hank's New Name. Sometimes it's hard for him to keep quiet when he supposed to, but one time it was a good thing he spoke up when Owen, George, Theodore were about to crash into Willies Island when Hank told Lilly to be quiet on the episode, "All Quiet in the Big Harbor."He always forgets to tuck in his anchor, so the other tugs always remind him every now and then. He always likes the describe things as "fresh" as it sounds like a terrific word even if it's the only word he can think of.



  • Hank's model is currently displayed at the Maritime Museum of the Atlantic.
  • Some of Hank's facial expressions were sold on ebay.
  • Hank's model has a post that claims he cannot wait to be bigger even though tugboat's do not grow.
  • In the Norwegian verison, Hank is called Henrik.
  • In the Swedish version, Hank is called Hasse.
