 Cap'n Tugg; Captain Lee and Mates at Kidshow.dcmemories.com
Axel was a spy, I think; Tugg was a sort of government agent, chasing spies in his tugboat on the Potomac.
Tugg had a great sense of humor--there was a segment of each show that had Tugg speaking into this wireless receiver, like you'd see used on boats in films, usually to his allies, to discuss Axel's movements.
Tugg would respond to this in a variety of ways--roll his eyes, shake his head at the camera, throw his microphone in the air, respond with a botched line that made no sense.

 Reading and Disucssion Questions for "The Tuggses at Ramsgate" (1836)
The plot is the narrative's mechanism of events in a cause-and-effect sequence leading to a climax (emotional high point, the location of maximum reader interest) and the falling action or denouement, which tidies up loose end and resolves the conflict.
Even if the reader feels that he is, or might be, in the same situation as the hero, the situation is being judged by norms of greater freedom and power.
A feature not uncommon in Dickens's fiction is the naïve hero, a protagonist whose obtuseness leads him into putting a mistaken interpretation of affairs and other characters that the knowing reader penetrates, thereby participating in the work's structural irony.
