Tugger is Russell Crowe's only companion in the TV show "Russell Crowe Fightin' Around The World". He probably gets tired of Russell Crowe's beating people meaninglessly all around the world and feels upset. Russell Crowe tries to make Tugger happier by singing to him his new album. Tugger refuses to listen but Russell Crowe can't understand its talking since the only sound Tugger can make is toot. Tugger can't stand Russell Crowe's song, he first tries to escape on his own but fails since he is moored. Then he puts on earmuffs but still no use. Finally Tugger can't take it anymore and shoots himself with a revolver.
Despite the gunshot, Tugger still lives as the doctor says all he needs is just an oil change and a new steam stack. Russell Crowe feels enlightened because of Tugger's recovery and decides to fight cancer from then on.
