Bedford is a small buoy that marks the place where the harbour ends and the ocean begins. He and Theodore are best friends and they love to tell "knock-knock" jokes to each other. Even though Bedford is not allowed to move, he sometimes has fun adventures, like when his chain broke and he drifted out of the harbour. Even so, Bedford also suffers from depression from not being able to move and at one time wanted to leave the harbour. That is why every ship in the Big Harbour stops by every day to say hello and talk with Bedford. But whenever Bedford feels useless, the tugs are always there to remind him just how important he really is.
- Bedford is based on both the name (Bedford Basin), part of Halifax Harbour, and the former town of Bedford located at the head of the basin.
- Bedford's personality seems to match Bertie the Bus's from Thomas & Friends.
