Phillip and Filmore

Phillip and Filmore are two identical ferry boat twins that cross the harbour before Benjamin Bridge. No one in the Big Harbour is able to tell which twin is which. They usually finish each others sentences. They are sometimes stubborn, and at one point Filmore left the harbour to visit Fundy the fishing boat. Their job is very well recognized, and every tug and ship is careful when they cross between them. [1]

Basis

The twins are modeled after the twin Metro Transit ferries Halifax III and Dartmouth III which were built in 1979 to carry passengers across Halifax Harbor on a daily basis.

Appearances

Trivia

  • Phillip's model was sold on eBay.
  • Filmore's model is currently on display at the Maritime Museum of the Atlantic.
  • In the books written by Michelle Mulder, Phillip and Filmore are played as their real life counter parts.
  • Philip was going to be made for an ERTL model but was cancelled.
  • Originally, Phillip and Filmore's models were just made with rectangular eyes, but later on in the series, their eyes were curved at the top and they had eyebrows.

Quotes

Filmore: Hi Fundy. I'm Filmore. I came to visit you. You are Fundy aren't you?
Fundy: What's in a name? A boat by any other name would smell as fishy.
Filmore (thinking in his thoughts): Fundy really does say strange things.
