Re-released. Tugger the Jeep is Back! TUGGER is the inspiring tale of a Jeep® 4x4, who, after being injured while serving his country during World War II, has his engine fan replaced by a real airplane propeller. From that day on, TUGGER is convinced that his destiny is to one day fly like a real airplane. After being sold as war surplus, Tugger spends his time towing airplanes at a local airfield, where he's always in trouble with the Tower Chief and his crazy dog, Max. TUGGER also shares the airport with his friends Ma and Pa, two grandparent-type vintage gas pumps; Bob an ex-WWII bomber converted into a firefighter, who is TUGGER's hero; and his best friend Shorty, a short-wave radio.
Does TUGGER ever fly? With a message of never giving up on a dream, and a little help from the prestigious Air Force Thunderbirds, Tugger’s dreams become a reality. The movie doesn't let its young viewers down. ********** Tugger's visual style is delightfully vibrant, crisp and clever, with a lovely, World War II-era vintage look.
"I liked how happy Tugger was when he finally flew and how he didn't give up" **********
