Kirby is a nervous cargo ship that is loaded with telephone poles from England. He was supposed to be towed by Theodore into the harbour. After Theodore bumped into Kirby, some of his poles fell into the sea, and he nearly left the harbour back to England. When Pearl explained the incident, Kirby accepted to be towed back into the harbour by Emily and Foduck. Later, Theodore and Emily found the poles floating in the harbour and safely returned them back to Kirby.
