"Who you calling tiny Tug!"
Sunshine, Too Young to Be Included
Sunshine is Captain Star's seventh and youngest tug, a small 'harbor switcher' who is used for a wide variety of tasks around Snugboat Harbor. She has many capabilities that range from the towing of barges to liner docking operations.
Sunshine can be occasionally cheeky at times, but is very strong willed nevertheless.
Sunshine works mainly with Ten Cents, the Star Fleet's first and larger switcher. They have shared many adventures, almost to the extent that it is impossible to imagine one without the other, and they are both the best friends.
Sunshine wears a red flatcap on her wheelhouse (or head).
- In the original TUGS series, Sunshine was depicted as a male character, along with Little Ditcher and Captain Star.
- In some shots, she appeared in her original white paint, but in most shots, she is in her star fleet colors.
- Sunshine is Ten Cents' little sister.
