A collaboration between Polka Dot Productions and the Australian ABC network, Ferry Boat Fred was a pro-social cartoon series, ostensibly set in Sydney Harbor. The title character, a talking ferry boat, enjoyed nothing more than taking his zoo-animal chums on thrilling rides along the bounding main. Fred was captained by an equally talkative koala bear, while the chief deckhand was Pete the Pelican. The 25 five-minute episodes of Ferry Boat Fred began making the Australian TV rounds in 1999.
