Scared Ship

Theodore and the Runaway Ferry is the ninth episode of the fifth season.


Filmore, one of the ferry twins, is bored and jealous. He is stuck going back and forth in the same lane every day, but other ships leave the Harbour and come back with great stories. So Filmore decides to leave the Harbour, too. Phillip, offers to look for his missing twin hoping that he, too, will see interesting things, but Foduck makes him stay put. Theodore helps Phillip cope with the tedium by teaching the ferry how to play 'I Spy.' During the game, Benjamin Bridge spies Filmore. Theodore quickly catches up with the runaway ferry and lets him know how worried everyone is and what fun he had playing with Phillip. Filmore, who hadn't meant to make anyone worry, agrees to return and try Theodore's game.



  • When Phillip floats from his dock away from Theodore, his windows are missing.
  • In some scenes, a wire is visible inside Filmore's cabin.
