About Toot the Tiny Tugboat

Adapted for TV by Lupus Films (The Snowman, The Snowdog & The Hive), ‘Toot the Tiny Tugboat” is based on the pre-school picture book, ‘Toot and Pop!” by Sebastien Braun – published by Harper Collins in the UK, US, Japan & Denmark.
‘Toot’ is a young tugboat in his first year of service. He is still learning the ropes and often makes mistakes but with the help of his friends at the harbour where he works, he manages to find a solution to most things – with a “Heave Ho, Let’s Go!” which is his catch-phrase. ‘Toot the Tiny Tugboat’ began on Milkshake (Channel 5) and Cartoonito in Autumn 2014. Targeted primarily at boys aged 18 months to 4 years, Lupus Films and Metrostar expect ‘Toot’ to achieve the enduring success of other well-known pre-school ‘characters with jobs’. ¬†Licensing to date includes:

  • Redan (Friends magazine)
  • Cooneen for George at Asda (pyjamas)

We would love to meet with licensees and retailers producing and selling products targeted at pre-school boy.
