Emily's New Hat is the eighteenth episode of the third season.


The Dispatcher thinks that Emily has outgrown her old hat and needs a new one. Reluctantly she obeys him, but inside she hates the new hat. When she wears it, people don't recognize her and she just doesn't feel like herself. After the distracted tug causes a mishap, Theodore convinces Emily to tell The Dispatcher how she feels. After listening to her and with some prompting by Theodore he agrees that it's a good idea for her to have her old hat back.



  • This is the only episode where a tugboat gets a new hat.
  • The Harbour Master's new bell is an Edwards Signaling Adaptabel.


  • The tugs are said to pull their caps down over their eyes when it is time to go to sleep, but throughout the episode, Theodore, Hank and Foduck do not do so.
  • In one shot of Emily talking to The Dispatcher, it's daylight and in another shot, it's nighttime.
  • When Petra yells "Look out!", Rebecca is no longer at her dock.
