A sample of the titles related to Tugs

The Sister Series
ttte.jpg
Also made by Clearwater features during the 1980s, although it has now moved away from Awdry's style

Clearwater features consisted of Robert D. Cardona and David Mitton, so when Robert moved to Canada. It is my guess this is why Britt Alcroft moved in as Executive Producer for Thomas The Tank Engine and Friends. It seems that this break up could be a reason for a second series of Tugs not being made, as TVS and Britt Alcroft were seperate companies (how vain naming a company after yourself!). For both series originally made by Clearwater Features Junior Cambell and Mike O'Donnell composed the music, some of which is on this site.
 
Here is just a sample of some of the titles that relate to Tugs along with the main three obvious ones.
