  • (The Thomas Season 5 intro is shown and we begin Thomas and Bertie's Great Race)
  • George Carlin: Thomas was waiting at the junction when the bus arrives.
  • Thomas: Hello.
  • George Carlin: Said Thomas.
  • Thomas: Who are you?
  • Bertie: I'm Bertie. Who are you?
  • Thomas: I'm Thomas. I run this branch line.
  • Bertie: So you're Thomas. Ah, I remembered now. You got stuck in the snow. I took your passengers and Terence the Tractor pulled you out. I've come to help you with your passengers today.
  • Thomas: Help me?
  • George Carlin: Said Thomas.
  • Thomas: I can go faster than you.
  • Bertie: You can't.
  • George Carlin: Said Bertie.
  • Thomas: I can.
  • George Carlin: Huffed Thomas.
  • Bertie: I'll race you!
  • George Carlin: Said Bertie. Their drivers agreed for the race going ahead. The stationmaster said...
  • Stationmaster: Are you ready? Go!
  • George Carlin: Thomas never could go fast at first and Bertie drew in front.
  • Annie and Clarabel: Why don't you go fast, why don't you go fast.
  • George Carlin: Called Annie and Clarabel.
  • Thomas: Wait and see, wait and see.
  • George Carlin: Hissed Thomas.
  • Annie and Clarabel: He's a long way ahead.
  • George Carlin: They wailed. But Thomas didn't mind. He remembered the level crossing. There was Bertie fuming at the gates while they sail gaily through.
  • Thomas: Goodbye, Bertie!
  • George Carlin: Called Thomas. After that the road left the railway so that they couldn't see Bertie. Then, they had to stop at the station to let off passengers.
  • Thomas: Peep peep! Quicky please!
  • George Carlin: Called Thomas and off they went again.
  • Thomas: Come along, come along.
  • George Carlin: Sang Thomas.
  • Annie and Clarabel: We're coming along, we're coming along.
  • George Carlin: Sang Annie and Clarabel.
  • Thomas: Hurry, hurry, hurry!
  • George Carlin: Panted Thomas, then he looked ahead. There was Bertie tooting triumphly on his horn.
  • Thomas: Oh deary me, oh deary me!
  • George Carlin: Groaned Thomas.
  • Driver: Steady, Thomas.
  • George Carlin: Said his driver.
  • Driver: We'll beat Bertie yet.
  • Annie and Clarabel: We'll be Bertie yet, we'll beat Bertie yet.
  • George Carlin: Echoed Annie and Clarabel.
  • Thomas: We'll do it, we'll do it.
  • George Carlin: Panted Thomas.
  • Thomas: Oh bother! There's the station.
  • George Carlin: Then he heard Bertie.
  • Bertie: Goodbye, Thomas. You must be tired. Sorry I can't stop. We buses have to work here you know. Goodbye.
  • Thomas: Oh dear.
  • George Carlin: Thought Thomas.
  • Thomas: We've lost.
  • George Carlin: But he felt better after a drink. The signal dropped.
  • Thomas: Hurrah, we're off! Hurrah, we're off!
  • George Carlin: Puffed Thomas. As they crossed the bridge, they heard an impatient...
  • Bertie: Honk honk!
  • George Carlin: There was Bertie waiting at the traffic lights. he started with a roar and chased on after Thomas once again. Now Thomas reached his full speed. Bertie tried hard but Thomas was too fast. Whistling triumphantly he plunged into the tunnel leaving Bertie toiling far behind.
  • Thomas: We've done it, we've done it!
  • George Carlin: Panted Thomas.
  • Annie and Clarabel: We've done it, hooray! We've done it, hooray!
  • George Carlin: Chanted Annie and Clarabel as they whooshed into the last station. Everyone was there to celebrate Thomas' victory. But they gave Bertie a big welcome too.
  • Bertie: Well done, Thomas.
  • George Carlin: Said Bertie.
  • Bertie: That was fun. But to beat you over that hill, I should have to grow wings and be an airplane.
  • George Carlin: They now kept each others very busy. They often talked about their race, but Bertie's passengers don't like being bounced like peas in the frying pan, and Sir Topham Hatt has warned Thomas not to race at dangerous speeds. So although, between you and me, they would like to have another race. I don't think they ever will, do you?
  • (A nameplate sequence occurs and we begin Old Iron)
  • George Carlin: One day, James have to wait at the station till Edward and his train came in. This made him cross.
  • James: Late again!
  • George Carlin: Edward laughed and James fumed again.
  • (James' whistle toots)
  • George Carlin: After James had finished his work, he went back to the yard, and puffed on to the turntable. He was still feeling very bad tempered.
  • James: Edward is impossible!
  • George Carlin: He grumbled to the others.
  • James: He clanks about like a lot of old iron and he is so slow, he makes us wait!
  • George Carlin: Thomas and Percy were indigment.
  • Percy: Old iron! Slow!
  • Thomas: Why! Edward could beat you in a race any day!
  • James: Really!
  • George Carlin: Said James.
  • James: I should like to see him do it.
  • (James' whistle toots)
  • George Carlin: Next morning, James' driver was suddenly taking ill. He could hardly stand, so the fireman uncoupled James ready for shunting. James was impatient. Suddenly, the signalman shouted. There was James puffing away down the line.
  • Signalman: All traffic halted!
  • George Carlin: Called the signalman. Then he told the fireman what had happened.
  • Signalman: Two boys were on James' footplate fiddling with the controls.
  • Fireman: Whew.
  • Signalman: They tumbled off and ran when James started.
  • (Phone rings)
  • George Carlin: The signalman answered the telephone.
  • Signalman: Yes? He's here? Right, I'll tell him. The inspector's coming at once. He wants a shunter's pole and a coil of wire rope.
  • Fireman: What for?
  • George Carlin: Wondered the fireman.
  • Signalman: Search me, but you better get them quickly.
  • George Carlin: The fireman was ready when Edward arrived. The inspector saw the pole and a rope.
  • Inspector: Good man, jump in.
  • (Edward's whistle toots)
  • Edward: We'll catch him, we'll catch him.
  • George Carlin: Puffed Edward. James was laughing.
  • James: What a lark! What a lark!
  • George Carlin: He chuckled to himself. Suddenly, he was going faster and faster. He realized that he had no driver.
  • James: What shall I do? I can't stop! Help! Help!
  • Edward: We're coming, we're coming!
  • George Carlin: Called Edward.
  • (Edward's whistle toots)
  • George Carlin: Edward was panting up behind with every ounce of steam he had. At last, he caught up with James.
  • (Edward's whistle toots)
  • Edward's Driver: Steady, Edward.
  • George Carlin: Called his driver. The inspector stood on Edward's front holding a noose of rope in the crook of the shunter's pole. He was trying to slip it over James' buffer. The engines swayed and lurched. At last...
  • Inspector: Got him!
  • George Carlin: He shouted. He pulled the noose tight. Gently braking, Edward's driver checked the engines' speed, and James' fireman scrambled across and took control.
  • Edward: So the old iron caught you after all.
  • George Carlin: Chuckled Edward.
  • James: I'm sorry.
  • George Carlin: Whispered James.
  • James: Thank you for saving me. You were splendid, Edward.
  • Edward: That's all right.
  • George Carlin: Replied Edward. The engines arrived at the station side by side. Sir Topham Hatt was waiting.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: A fine piece of work.
  • George Carlin: He said.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: James, you can rest, and then take your train. I'm proud of you, Edward. You shall go to the works and have your worn parts mended.
  • Edward: Oh, thank you, Sir.
  • George Carlin: Said Edward.
  • Edward: It'll be lovely not to clank.
  • (Another nameplate sequence occurs and we begin The Trouble With Mud)
  • George Carlin: One morning, Thomas was being cleaned when Gordon arrived. Mud had blown all over his smart blue paint.
  • Thomas: Hello, Gordon.
  • George Carlin: Called Thomas.
  • Thomas: You look as you had a mud bath. Be a sensible engine and have a shower instead.
  • George Carlin: Gordon snorted.
  • Gordon: I haven't time to dawdle over my appearance like fussy tank engines do.
  • George Carlin: The wind blew stronger.
  • Driver: Gordon, slow down!
  • George Carlin: Called his driver. This made Gordon crosser still.
  • Gordon: Now I'll be dirty and late, dirty and late!
  • George Carlin: He hissed. At the next station was a sign: All Trains Must Wash Down Daily. James had just finished being cleaned.
  • Driver: Come on, Gordon.
  • George Carlin: Said his driver.
  • Driver: You feel better too after a good hosedown.
  • Gordon: Bah!
  • George Carlin: Said Gordon and angrily let off steam.
  • Driver: You're a very naughty engine!
  • George Carlin: Said Gordon's driver.
  • Driver: Now James will need another shower. You'll have to wait your turn till later.
  • Gordon: Good riddance.
  • George Carlin: Huffed Gordon.
  • Gordon: I'm far too busy to waste time with water.
  • George Carlin: He finished his journey safely and steamed into the big station. Sir Topham Hatt was waiting. So are Gordon's coaches and the passengers.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Goodness gracious!
  • George Carlin: Said Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: You can't pull the train, Henry will have to do it. Gordon you better get cleaned straight away.
  • George Carlin: Gordon was soon being washed.
  • Gordon: Mind my eyes!
  • George Carlin: He grumbled. Then he pulled cars for the rest of the day.
  • Gordon: Freight trains, freight trains!
  • George Carlin: He spluttered. He felt his position deeply.
  • Gordon: That's for you, and you, and you!
  • James: Cars will be cars.
  • George Carlin: Laughed James.
  • Gordon: They won't with me.
  • George Carlin: Snorted Gordon.
  • Gordon: I'll teach them.
  • George Carlin: James got ready to take the express when Gordon returned.
  • Gordon: Be careful.
  • George Carlin: Warned Gordon.
  • Gordon: The hills are slippery. You may need help.
  • James: I don't need help on hills.
  • George Carlin: Replied James huffily.
  • James: Gordon thinks he knows everything.
  • George Carlin: Earlier the storm had slipped Gordon's Hill blowing leaves on the tracks which made them slippery. Even know the storm had passed, the hill was still difficult to climb. James knew this. The signal shown cleared, and James began to go faster.
  • James: I'll do it, I'll do it.
  • George Carlin: He puffed. Halfway up, he was not so sure.
  • James: I must do it, I must do it.
  • George Carlin: But his wheels slipped on the leaves. He couldn't pull the train at all.
  • James: Help, help!
  • George Carlin: Whistled James. His wheels were turning forward, but the heavy coaches pulled him backwards. The haul train started slipping down the hill. His driver shut off steam and put on the brakes, then carefully he stopped the train. Gordon saw everything.
  • Gordon: Ah well, we live and learn. Never mind, little James. I'm going to push behind.
  • George Carlin: Clouds of smoke and steam billowed from the snorting engines as they struggled up the hill.
  • James: We can do it!
  • George Carlin: Puffed James.
  • Gordon: We will do it!
  • George Carlin: Puffed Gordon. At last they reached the top.
  • James: Peep peep! Thank you, goodbye!
  • George Carlin: Whistled James.
  • Gordon: Poop poop!
  • George Carlin: Answered Gordon.
  • Gordon: Goodbye!
  • George Carlin: That night, Sir Topham Hatt came to see the engines. Gordon was miserable.
  • Thomas: Please, sir?
  • George Carlin: Said Thomas.
  • Thomas: Can Gordon pull coaches again now?
  • Sir Topham Hatt: If you understand that having a washdown as a sensle to every engine, then yes, Gordon, you may.
  • Gordon: Thank you.
  • George Carlin: Grunted Gordon.
  • Gordon: Dirty or clean, I'm a famous machine!
  • George Carlin: But no one heard but him.
  • (Another nameplate sequence occurs and we begin Terence The Tractor)
  • George Carlin: Autumn had come to the Island of Sodor. The fields were changing from yellow stubble to brown earth and an tractor was hard at work as Thomas puff along. Later Thomas saw the tractor close by.
  • Terence: Hello.
  • George Carlin: Said the tractor.
  • Terence: I'm Terence, I'm plowing.
  • Thomas: I'm Thomas, I'm pulling a train. What ugly wheels you got.
  • Terence: They're not ugly, they're caterpillars.
  • George Carlin: Said Terence.
  • Terence: I can go anywhere. I don't need rails.
  • Thomas: I don't want to go anywhere.
  • George Carlin: Said Thomas.
  • Thomas: I like my rails, thank you.
  • George Carlin: Winter came with dark clouds full of snow.
  • Driver: I don't like it.
  • George Carlin: Said Thomas' driver.
  • Driver: A heavy fall is coming. I hope it doesn't stop us.
  • Thomas: Huh!
  • George Carlin: Puffed Thomas.
  • Thomas: Soft stuff, nothing to it.
  • George Carlin: And he puffed on feeling cold but confident. They finished their journey safely but by now the country was covered.
  • Driver: You need your snowplough for the next journey, Thomas.
  • George Carlin: Said his driver.
  • Thomas: Huh! Snow is silly soft stuff it won't stop me.
  • George Carlin: The snowplough was heavy and uncomfortable and made Thomas cross. He shook it and he banged it and when they got back it was so damaged that the driver had to take it off.
  • Driver: You're a very naughty engine.
  • George Carlin: He said to Thomas. Next morning, Thomas' driver and fireman came early and worked hard to mend the snowplough, but they couldn't make it fit. Thomas was pleased.
  • Thomas: I shan't have to wear it, I shan't have to wear it.
  • George Carlin: He puffed to Annie and Clarabel. But they were rather worried.
  • Annie and Clarabel: I hope it's all right, I hope it's all right.
  • George Carlin: They whispered to each other. The driver was worried too.
  • Driver: It's not bad here.
  • George Carlin: He said to the fireman.
  • Driver: But it's sure to be deep in the valley.
  • Thomas: Silly soft stuff.
  • George Carlin: Huffed Thomas.
  • Thomas: I didn't need that stupid old thing yesterday and i shan't today. Snow can't stop me.
  • George Carlin: He rushed into a tunnel thinking how clever he was. But there was trouble ahead.
  • (Crash)
  • Thomas: Cinders and ashes!
  • George Carlin: Said Thomas.
  • Thomas: I'm stuck.
  • George Carlin: And he was.
  • Driver: Back, Thomas, back.
  • George Carlin: Said his driver. Thomas tried but his wheels spun and he couldn't move. The conductor went back for help while everyone else tried to dig the snow away. But as fast as they dug, more snow slipped down until Thomas was nearly buried.
  • Thomas: Oh, my wheels and coupling rods. I shall have to stop here till I'm frozen. What a silly engine I am.
  • George Carlin: And Thomas began to cry. At last the bus came to rescue the passengers. And then who should come to Thomas's rescue but Terence. Snow never worries him.
  • (Terence hooks up to Clarabel and pulls her and Annie out of the snow)
  • George Carlin: He pulled the empty coaches away, then came back for Thomas. Thomas' wheels were clear but still spun when he tried to move. Terence tugged and slipped and slipped and tugged and at last dragged Thomas clear of the snow ready for the journey home.
  • (Terence goes away into the tunnel with Thomas following him)
  • Thomas: Oh, thank you, Terence. Your caterpillars are splendid.
  • George Carlin: Said Thomas.
  • Driver: I hope you'll be sensible now, Thomas.
  • George Carlin: Said his driver.
  • Thomas: I'll try.
  • George Carlin: Said Thomas and he puffed slowly away.
  • (Another nameplate sequence occurs and we begin Percy's Ghostly Trick)
  • (Owl hooting twice)
  • (Ghost whistle blows)
  • Percy: And every year on the date of the accident, it runs again as a warning to others, plunging into the gap, shrieking like a lost soul.
  • Thomas: Percy what are you talking about?
  • Percy: The ghost train. Driver saw it last night.
  • Thomas and Toby: Where?
  • George Carlin: Asked Thomas and Toby.
  • Percy: He didn't say, oh it makes my wheels wobble to think of it.
  • Thomas: Pooh!
  • George Carlin: Said Thomas.
  • Thomas: You're just a silly little engine. I'm not scared.
  • Percy: Thomas didn't believe in ghosts.
  • George Carlin: Said Percy next morning. His driver laughed.
  • Percy's Driver: Neither do I. It was only a pretend ghost story.
  • George Carlin: Percy was disappointed. That evening, he came back from the harbour. Percy knew where he was, even in the dark.
  • Percy: Crowe's Farm Crossing. We shan't be long now.
  • George Carlin: He liked running at night. The rails hummed and the signal light shoned green. But a broken cart load of lime lay ahead. Sam the Farmer had just gone for help.
  • (Percy's whistle toots and a loud crash is heard as he hits the cart)
  • George Carlin: Percy broke the cart to smithereens. Lime flew everywhere. He puffed quickly to the nearest signal box. Percy's driver explained what had happened.
  • Signalman: I'll see to it.
  • George Carlin: Said the Signalman.
  • Signalman: But you better clean Percy, or people will think he's a ghost.
  • George Carlin: Percy chuckled.
  • Percy: Do let's pretend I'm a ghost and scared Thomas. That'll teach him to see I'm a silly little engine.
  • George Carlin: Toby promised to help.
  • (Toby leaves Percy and heads back to the sheds)
  • George Carlin: Thomas was being oiled up for his evening train.
  • Toby: Percy's had an accident!
  • George Carlin: Cried Toby.
  • Thomas: Poor engine.
  • George Carlin: Said Thomas.
  • Thomas: Botheration! That means I'll be late!
  • Toby: They've cleared the line for you, but there's something worse.
  • Thomas: Out with it, Toby, I can't wait all evening.
  • Toby: I've just seen something.
  • George Carlin: Said Toby.
  • Toby: It looked like Percy's ghost. It said it was coming here to warn us.
  • Thomas: Pooh! Who cares? Don't be frightened, Toby. I'll take care of you.
  • (We can hear Percy's whistle and a loud brake sound)
  • Percy: (ghostly voice) Peep, peep, peep-peep-peep, peep! Let me in, let me in!
  • George Carlin: Wailed Percy.
  • Toby: No, no! Not by the smoke on my chimney chim chim!
  • Percy: (ghostly voice) I'll chuff and I'll puff and I'll break your door in!
  • (The doors open and reveal Percy all along)
  • Thomas: Oh dear!
  • George Carlin: Explained Thomas.
  • Thomas: It's getting late. Oh, I have no idea. Oh, I must find Annie and Clarabel.
  • George Carlin: It was morning when Thomas returned.
  • Toby: Where have you been?
  • George Carlin: Asked Toby.
  • Thomas: Ah well.
  • George Carlin: Said Thomas.
  • Thomas: I knew you be sad about Percy, and I, um, I didn't like to intrude. I slept in the freight shed and...
  • (Percy's whistle is heard again, along with a ghostly one)
  • Thomas: Oh, sorry, can't stop. Gotta see a coach about a train.
  • George Carlin: Percy was non a worse for his adventure, and was still enjoying himself enormously. He had heard everything.
  • Percy: Well, well, well! What do you know about that?
  • Toby: Anyone would think...
  • George Carlin: Chuckled Toby.
  • Toby: ...that our Thomas was just seen a ghost!
  • (Another nameplate sequence occurs and we begin Mavis)
  • George Carlin: Mavis is a diesel engine who works at the quarry company shunting freight cars in their sidings. She has six small wheels hidden by sideplates just like Toby's. Mavis is young and full of her own ideas. She loves rearranging things too and began putting Toby's cars in different places every day. This made Toby cross.
  • Toby: Freight cars...
  • George Carlin: He grumbled.
  • Toby: ...should be where you want them when you want them.
  • Mavis: Fiddlesticks!
  • George Carlin: Said Mavis and flounced away. At last, Toby lost patience.
  • Toby: I can't waste time playing "Hunt The Cars" with you. Take them yourself.
  • George Carlin: Mavis was pleased. Taking cars made her feel important. At the station, Diesel oiled up to her.
  • Mavis: Toby's an old fusspot.
  • George Carlin: She complained. Diesel sense trouble and was delighted.
  • Mavis: Toby says only steam engines can manage freight cars.
  • George Carlin: Continued Mavis.
  • Diesel: How observe.
  • George Carlin: Squirmed Diesel.
  • Diesel: Depend upon it, Mavis. Anything steam engines can do, we diesels can do better.
  • George Carlin: Diesel knew nothing about cars, but Mavis didn't realize this. Toby's line crosses the main road behind the station, and for a short way follows a farm lane. Frosty weather makes the mud rock-hard and very slippery. Toby stops before reaching the lane. His fireman halts the traffic at the level crossing and then he sets off again. By using the heavy cars to push him along, he has no trouble with the frosty rails and the lane and across the road. It is the only thing safe thing to do in this kind of weather. Toby warned Mavis and told her just what to do.
  • Mavis: I can manage, thank you.
  • George Carlin: She replied.
  • Mavis: I'm not an old fusspot like you.
  • George Carlin: The freight cars were tired of being pushed around by Mavis.
  • Freight Cars: It's slippery.
  • George Carlin: They whispered.
  • Freight Cars: Let's push her around instead. On, on, on!
  • George Carlin: They yelled. Mavis took no notice. Instead, she brought the cars carefully down the lane and stopped at the level crossing. All traffic halted.
  • Mavis: One of the headlamp for fusspot Toby.
  • George Carlin: Chortled Mavis. But Mavis had stopped in the wrong place. Instead of taking Toby's advice, she had given the cars the chance they wanted.
  • Freight Cars: Hold back! Hold back!
  • George Carlin: They cried.
  • Mavis: Grrrr up!
  • George Carlin: Ordered Mavis. The cars just laughed and her wheels spun headlessly. Workmen sanded the rails and dig away the frozen mud, but it was no good. Everyone was impatient.
  • Mavis: Grrrr agh!
  • George Carlin: Wailed Mavis. Toby was in the yard when he heard the news.
  • Toby: I warned her.
  • George Carlin: He fumed.
  • Toby's Driver: She's young yet.
  • George Carlin: Soothed his driver.
  • Toby's Driver: And...
  • Toby: She can manage her cars herself.
  • George Carlin: Interrupted Toby.
  • Toby's Driver: They're your cars really.
  • George Carlin: His driver replied.
  • Toby's Driver: Mavis is suppose to stay at the quarry if Sir Topham Hatt finds out.
  • Toby: Mmmm, yes.
  • George Carlin: Said Toby thoughtfully. He and his driver agreed that'll be best to help Mavis after all. An angry farmer was telling Mavis just what she could do with her train.
  • Toby: Having trouble Mavis?
  • George Carlin: Chortled Mavis.
  • Toby: I am surprised.
  • Mavis: Grrrr osh!
  • George Carlin: Said Mavis.
  • (Toby starts to couple up to Mavis)
  • George Carlin: With much puffing and wheels slipped, Toby pushed Mavis and the freight cars back. The hard work made his fire burn fiercely, and his fireman spread hot cinders to melt the frozen mud.
  • (Toby pushes Mavis and the cars all the way to the top)
  • George Carlin: At last they finished.
  • Toby: Goodbye!
  • George Carlin: Called Toby.
  • Toby: You'll managed now, I expect.
  • George Carlin: Mavis didn't answer. She took the cars to the sheds, and scuttled home to the quarry as quickly as she could.
  • (Another nameplate sequence occurs and we begin Henry and The Elephant)
  • George Carlin: Thomas the Tank Engine puffed happily along his branch line with Annie and Clarabel. Sir Topham Hatt was waiting on the platform. He looked at his watch.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Well done, Thomas. You're right on time and really reliable.
  • Thomas: Thank you, Sir.
  • George Carlin: Whistled Thomas.
  • Annie and Clarabel: Ooh, right on time and really reliable.
  • George Carlin: Hummed the coaches. But the big engines were not feeling cheerful at all.
  • Henry: Where's Percy?
  • George Carlin: Mumbled Henry.
  • Henry: He suppose to fetch our coaches.
  • James: We get no rest.
  • George Carlin: Complained James. He edged angrily onto the turntable and spoke rudely to Henry.
  • James: What's the matter, Henry? There's no rain today. Stop worrying and do some work instead.
  • Henry: I'm not afraid of getting wet anymore.
  • George Carlin: Huffed Henry.
  • Henry: Anyway, you looked silly enough to be a clown you should join the circus.
  • Percy: Oh.
  • George Carlin: Whistled Percy.
  • Percy: So you heard the news?
  • Gordon: What news?
  • Percy: About the circus.
  • James: Percy, what are you talking about?
  • Percy: The circus has arrived.
  • George Carlin: Explained Percy.
  • Percy: I've been shunting special cars. Sir Topham Hatt need your help too.
  • George Carlin: The engines soon forgot to be tired and cross. Until it was time for the circus to leave. Then Gordon and Henry were cross all over again when James got to pull the train away. A little later Sir Topham Hatt returned.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Come along, Henry. A tunnel has blocked down the line. You must take some workmen to investigate.
  • Henry: Pushing cars, pushing cars.
  • George Carlin: Grumbled Henry. They stopped outside the tunnel. The workmen went inside. It was very dark and quiet. But not for long.
  • (Elephant trumpeting)
  • Workmen: Help!
  • George Carlin: Shouted the workmen and they ran out.
  • (The Workmen race out of the tunnel)
  • Workman: We started to dig at the block but it grunted and moved.
  • George Carlin: One said.
  • Foreman: Rubbish!
  • George Carlin: Said the foreman.
  • Workman: It's not rubbish. It's big and alive. We're not going in there again.
  • Foreman: Right.
  • George Carlin: Said the foreman.
  • Foreman: I'll ride in the cars and Henry shall push it out.
  • Henry: Weesh!
  • George Carlin: Said Henry unhappily. He had been shut in the tunnel for being afraid of the rain but this was worse. Something big and alive was inside.
  • Henry: Peep! Peep! I don't want to go in.
  • Driver: Neither do I.
  • George Carlin: Said his driver.
  • Driver: But we must clear the line.
  • Henry: Oh, dear. Oh, dear.
  • George Carlin: Huffed Henry.
  • (Henry goes into the tunnel)
  • George Carlin: Then there was trouble. The block was indeed alive and very strong it began to push the train backwards. Out of the tunnel came Henry, then the cars and last of all a large cross elephant.
  • (Elephant trumpeting)
  • Foreman: Well I never!
  • George Carlin: Cried the foreman. The workmen gave him some cake.
  • (Elephant trumpeting)
  • George Carlin: He drank three buckets of water and it was just about to drink another when Henry let off steam.
  • (Elephant trumpets)
  • George Carlin: Cried the elephant. Water went all over Henry. Poor Henry! The elephant and his keeper was so reunited, but Henry was most upset.
  • Henry: An elephant pushed me! An elephant hoosed me!
  • George Carlin: That night, he told the other engines all about it. Gordon and James felt sorry for Henry, but still teased him.
  • Gordon: First the rain, then an elephant. Whatever will you be afraid of next?
  • Thomas: Never mind, Henry.
  • George Carlin: Murmured Thomas.
  • Thomas: I think you are brave today, and really reliable too.
  • (Another nameplate sequence occurs and we begin Percy's Promise)
  • George Carlin: Every summer, the Island of Sodor was very busy. Holiday makers love the sight see. When the weather is fine, there's no better place to visit. Some people like to go to the mountains. Others like the valleys. Children love the seaside. One morning, Thomas was puffing along the line that runs by the coast. His two coaches Annie and Clarabel were packed with children going to the beach. Everyone was happy. Percy was taking some freight cars at the Harbour.
  • Percy: Hello, Thomas. You look cheerful. I wish I can take children today instead of freight cars.
  • Thomas: They're in the vicar's Sunday school.
  • George Carlin: Explained Thomas.
  • Thomas: I'm busy this evening, but the stationmaster says I can ask you to take the children home.
  • Percy: Of course I will.
  • George Carlin: Promised Percy. Later, Percy saw Harold.
  • Harold: Sorry, Percy. Can't talk. I'm on high alert.
  • Percy: Why?
  • Harold: Bad weather's due. My help's always needed. Might how you go, Percy.
  • Percy: Huh.
  • George Carlin: Huffed Percy.
  • Percy: As long I got rails to run on, I can go anywhere and any weather anyhow. Goodbye.
  • Edward: Be careful.
  • George Carlin: Warned Edward.
  • Edward: There's a storm coming.
  • Percy: A promise is a promise.
  • George Carlin: Thought Percy.
  • Percy: No matter what the weather.
  • George Carlin: The children had a lovely day, but by tea time, dark clouds loomed ahead. Annie and Clarabel were glad when Percy arrived. He was just in time. The rain streamed down Percy's boiler.
  • Percy: Ugh!
  • George Carlin: He shivered and thought of his nice dry shed. Percy struggled on past coastal villages and into the countryside. The river was rising fast.
  • Percy: I wish I could see, I wish I could see!
  • George Carlin: Complained Percy as he battled against the rain. More trouble lay ahead.
  • (Percy falls into the water and inside him, the fire gets sloshed)
  • Percy: Oh!
  • George Carlin: Hissed Percy.
  • Percy: The water's sloshing my fire!
  • George Carlin: Percy's driver and fireman had to find some more firewood.
  • Fireman: I'll have some of your floor boards, please.
  • George Carlin: Said the fireman to the conductor.
  • Conductor: I only swept the floor this morning.
  • George Carlin: Grumbled the conductor and he still help. Soon, Percy's fire was burning well. He felt warm and comfortable again. Then he saw Harold.
  • Percy: Oh dear.
  • George Carlin: Thought Percy.
  • Percy: Harold's coming to laugh at me.
  • George Carlin: Something floated onto Percy's boiler.
  • Percy: Ow!
  • George Carlin: Explained Percy.
  • Percy: He needed throw things.
  • Driver: It's a parachute!
  • George Carlin: Laughed his driver.
  • Driver: Harold's dropping hot drinks from us.
  • Percy: Thank you, Harold.
  • George Carlin: Whistled Percy.
  • Harold: Good to be at service.
  • George Carlin: Replied Harold as buzzed away. The water lapped Percy's wheels. Percy was losing steam again, but he plunged bravely on.
  • Percy: I promised.
  • George Carlin: He panted.
  • Percy: I promised.
  • George Carlin: He meant one more big effort, and at last exhausted by triumph, he brought the train home.
  • Thomas: Well done, Percy!
  • George Carlin: Cheered Thomas.
  • Thomas: You kept your promise, dispite everything!
  • George Carlin: Sir Topham Hatt arrived in Harold. First, he thanked the men, then Percy.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Harold told me you are a wizard. He said he can beat you at somethings, but not a been on submarine. I don't know what you get onto sometimes, but I do know that you're a really useful engine.
  • Percy: Oh sir.
  • George Carlin: Whispered Percy happily.
  • (Another nameplate sequence occurs and we begin James Goes Buzz Buzz)
  • George Carlin: Trevor the Traction Engine was enjoying his work in Vicarage Orchard. Birds were singing and apples were brightening on the trees. It was a lovely day.
  • James: Hello Trevor.
  • George Carlin: Said James.
  • James: You look as bright and cheerful as my red paint.
  • Trevor: Oh I am.
  • George Carlin: Replied Trevor.
  • James: What's that noise?
  • Trevor: It's the bees.
  • George Carlin: Laughed Trevor.
  • Trevor: They're all in these boxy things called beehives. I'm taking them to the station. The vicar says his bees make good honey and he's giving some of them to his friends.
  • George Carlin: Just then, BoCo the diesel engine hummed in.
  • BoCo: Take care you two. Don't make the bees angry. They might sting you.
  • George Carlin: James didn't like being told what to do by a diesel and he buzzed away.
  • BoCo: Goodbye, Trevor.
  • George Carlin: Called BoCo and set off to see Duck at the next station. Bill and Ben the tank engine twins were busy arranging cars. But they scampered off when they saw BoCo.
  • BoCo: I remember the first time I met those two.
  • George Carlin: Laughed BoCo.
  • BoCo: They nearly made my eyes pop out. Edward soon put a stop in their games.
  • Duck: Edward is the only one who can keep Bill and Ben in order.
  • George Carlin: Chuckled Duck.
  • Duck: I sometimes call them "The Bees".
  • BoCo: A good name.
  • George Carlin: Replied BoCo.
  • BoCo: Their terrors when the start buzzing around.
  • George Carlin: James bustled in.
  • James: What's that, Duck? Are you afraid of bees? They're only insects after all, so don't let that buzz box diesel tell you different.
  • Duck: His name is BoCo, and he didn't. We...
  • James: I wouldn't care, if hundreds were swarming around. I'd just blow smoke and make them buzz off.
  • Duck: Buzz, buzz, buzz.
  • George Carlin: Retorted Duck. The next morning, James arrived at the station to collect his coaches. The passengers were excited and keened to get on board. The platform was crowded and the porter was in a hurry.
  • Porter: Mind your backs.
  • George Carlin: He shouted. Then there was trouble. The beehive fell and broke open. The station cleared like magic. James heard a familiar buzzing. The bees were to cold to be cross so they buzzed around the fireman hoping he'd mend their hive. But he didn't understand, nor did his driver. So the bees turned to James. His boiler was nice and warm.
  • James: Buzz off! Buzz off!
  • George Carlin: Hissed James. One bee burnt its foot.
  • Bee: Ooh! Aah! Ooh! Ooh!
  • George Carlin: The bee thought James had burnt him on purpose.
  • (The bee charges toward James)
  • George Carlin: So it stung James right back on the nose.
  • (Doink!)
  • James: Eeeeeeeeeeee!
  • George Carlin: Whistled James. He had had enough so had his fireman and driver. They didn't notice till too late that they had left all their coaches behind. They tried everything to get rid of the bees. First they spun on the turntable but to no avail. They tried washing them off but the bees clung harder to James' warm boiler. Then they tried smoking them off by going through a long tunnel. But still the bees wouldn't go away.
  • Driver: It's no good, James.
  • George Carlin: Said his driver.
  • Driver: We'll just have to get back to the orchard and fetch another hive.
  • George Carlin: James' reply was drowned by the sound of buzzing. The Vicar was waiting anxiously for James. When he arrived, the buzz swarm straight into their new home.
  • Driver: Come on, James.
  • George Carlin: Said his driver.
  • Driver: What you need now is a good hosedown.
  • George Carlin: Later that evening, James was resting in the shed when the Vicar came to see him.
  • Vicar: Thank you for saving my bees.
  • George Carlin: He said.
  • Vicar: It's the pity it's not Christmas, then we can call you James the Red-Nosed Engine.
  • George Carlin: Everyone laughed even James. But instead, they decided to call James "The Bees Knees", which means they thought he was more useful than ever.
  • (Another nameplate sequence occurs and we begin All At Sea)
  • George Carlin: Percy and Duck like working at the harbour by the sea. On a clear summer's night, there's no better place to be. The big ships bring passengers. Cargo ships carry machinery and other things. Duck and Percy puffed backwards and forwards with the crates of cargo as they are loaded and unloaded by the keyside. One morning, Duck and Percy noticed that the horizon was packed with sails flapping against the blue sky.
  • Duck: I wish I could sail to faraway lands.
  • George Carlin: Sighed Duck.
  • Percy: Engines can't go sailing.
  • George Carlin: Snorted Percy.
  • Percy: Because engines can't float.
  • George Carlin: Duck still had his dreams. Suddenly, they were rudely interrupted.
  • Harold: Wakey, wakey.
  • George Carlin: Hovered Harold.
  • Duck: I'm looking at the boats.
  • George Carlin: Replied Duck.
  • Harold: That's the regatta. Lots of boats, lots of races. Great fun. I hover around in case i'm needed.
  • Duck: Do you go to the horizon?
  • George Carlin: Asked Duck.
  • Harold: Yes and beyond.
  • Percy: I didn't know there was a beyond.
  • George Carlin: Whispered Percy.
  • Duck: Do you go to other places at sea?
  • George Carlin: Continued Duck.
  • Harold: Certainly. I can land on ships you know. Anywhere, anytime. Goodbye.
  • George Carlin: Duck sighed. He went on talking about the regatta all day. Percy lost patience.
  • Percy: Well, Duck, I rather had my wheels on solid ground. Our rails can take us to all the places we can ever wish to see.
  • (We hear a siren wailing)
  • Duck's Driver: That's an emergency.
  • George Carlin: Called Duck's driver.
  • Duck's Driver: I'll check with the harbourmaster.
  • George Carlin: He returned with bad news.
  • Duck's Driver: A man taking part in the regatta had hurt his hand. We're to take him to the hospital at the next station. Harold's bringing him now. Come on.
  • (Duck hurries to the scene just in time to see Harold land)
  • Harold: Good to see you again, Duck.
  • George Carlin: Whirred Harold as he landed carefully on the platform. The man was gently helped to safety.
  • Harold: My job is to stay at sea in case of other emergencies. Otherwise I will take this gentleman to hospital myself. Must fly. Goodbye.
  • George Carlin: Duck set off on his journey. Soon he was steaming well and his wheels were thundering along the track. When they reached the station, the man thanked everyone and Bertie got ready to take him to the hospital.
  • Bertie: You look splendid flying along the line, Duck.
  • George Carlin: Bloat Bertie.
  • Bertie: No wonder they called you great western.
  • Duck: Thank you, Bertie. Percy's right.
  • George Carlin: He thought to himself.
  • Duck: Engines are happiest when their wheels are firmly on the rails.
  • George Carlin: That night, Percy and Duck stayed a little longer at the key. The air was warm and the sea calmed.
  • Duck: There's a shooting star.
  • George Carlin: Said Duck.
  • Percy: Don't be daft.
  • George Carlin: Laughed Percy.
  • Percy: It's Harold. Look, he's hovering overhead.
  • George Carlin: Something fluttered down towards Duck. His driver caught it.
  • Duck's Driver: It's a flag from the regatta. Harold's giving it to you as a present, Duck.
  • Duck: That was kind of Harold.
  • George Carlin: Whispered Duck.
  • Duck: He may have whirly arms instead of wheels. But he seems to understand just what an engine needs.
  • George Carlin: Duck still wonders about the lands beyond the horizon. But I think he knows that, sometimes, the best travels are those we can only dream about. Don't you?
  • (Another nameplate sequence occurs and we begin the grand finale of Thomas' Anthem)
