Theodore and the Boat Bully is the twenty-first episode of the third season.


A new tug comes to the harbour to work for a while. His name is Oliver the Vast. Owan and George do not like Oliver because he is not very friendly to them. Sure enough, after running into him a few times, Theodore is certain that Oliver is a bully and that he doesn't want to be Theodore's friend. Theodore finally tells the Dispatcher about Oliver, and the next day, Oliver gets sent back across the ocean.



  • This episode marks Oliver's first and only appearance.
  • This is the first time Owan speaks in a hushed voice.
