Theodore Too was commissioned by Cochran Entertainment, Inc.,3 the now-defunct production company. Andrew Cochran, the creator of Theodore Tugboat,14 had told his son bedtime stories about the boats in the big harbour and how they interacted with everyone. This later became the basis for the TV series. Theodore became so popular, the company constructed a life-size model of him for marketing and promoting water safety.23 The boat is unusual as it is a full-size replica of a scale model. The original model which was used to film the series and inspired Theodore Too can be seen at Halifax’s Maritime Museum of the Atlantic.5 The boat made a tour of cities on the American East Coast in its first year and participated in tall ship events.2 After Cochran Entertainment went out of business, the boat was purchased by a Halifax tour boat company, Murphys on the Water. The vessel provides tours of Halifax Harbour in the summer, operating from the Cable Wharf in downtown Halifax.
