|This article is about the tugboat. You may be looking for the lighthouse.|
George is the strongest and biggest tugboat in the Big Harbour. He wears a purple baseball cap on his head backwards.
George the Valiant loves to show off and can sometimes be a little rude without knowing it. He especially loves to tell stories to the other tugs, mostly about himself, and is therefore prone to sulking when attention shifts away from him. He also loves to blow up a lot of smoke from his smokestack and make a lot of loud noises revving his powerful twin engines. But most of all, George is a hard worker and never finishes a job until it's done, and always stands up for his friends. George and Emily often get into fights, but in the end, they always make up.  He once wanted to be called Goliath, and then Gargantua, in Hank's New Name. He also got his nickname "Georgie" from his new friend Shamus the sea trawler. He also seems to like giving orders, but gives too many as he discovers when he, Theodore, and Foduck try to solve an underwater mystery, he soon learns a good leader knows when to follow. In "Theodore and the Borrowed Bell" it was revealed that he likes the stuff Northumberland finds under the water.
