Guysborough Makes a Friend is the twenty-fifth episode of the fifth season.


Guysborough, the grumpy garbage barge, doesn't understand why no one ever says hello to him, but Theodore knows it is because Guysborough thinks everyone and everything is 'rotten' and he never hesitates to say so. As Guysborough's tug in charge, Theodore decides it is his job to keep Guysborough from being mean to anyone, so he is distressed when Digby, the Cable Ship, wants to meet the barge. He is so worried about what might happen, he goes to great lengths to avoid Digby, but the cable ship eventually catches up with them. To the tug's great surprise, the two curmudgeons enjoy each other's griping and they become fast friends.
