Thomas Song in the Anything Tunnel

  1. Thomas' Anthem


  • This is where all the Barney and Friends kids appear.
  • Harry Cupper returns.
  • Stella, Tinkerputt and Boyd are to be worked.
  • Thomas' Anthem has no lyrics (like in Percy's Ghostly Trick and Other Thomas Stories).
  • Kathy's teddy bear is to be with her, the way Chelsea does to Mr. Lovable.
  • Kimiko will use her The Apprentice outfit from this season onward.
  • Also, Everything Is Not What It Seems will replace the Shining Time Station end theme in the outro.


  • (We open this episode with the 1993 Connecticut Television logo)
  • (We are then followed by the Britt Allcroft Presents logo)
  • (We afterwards open with the Shining Time Station theme song)
  • Man: Reach for the steam, reach for the whistle, going the railing road. Reach for the words, reach for the story, follow the rainbow sun. To a Shining Time Station, where dreams can come true, waiting there for you.
  • (As we start, we show The Backyard Gang arriving at Shining Time Station)
  • Michael: Wow.
  • Derek: So that must be Shining Time Station.
  • Tina: We're sure going to love it.
  • Luci: Indeed.
  • Kathy: My teddy and I have lots of excitements.
  • Shawn: I'm wearing my glasses.
  • Min: I'm so psyched to hear it.
  • Tosha: Look, there's Stacy and the others.
  • (Stacy, Harry, Billy and the Kids' WB characters appear)
  • Stacy, Harry, Billy and the Kids' WB characters: Welcome, everyone!
  • Stella: It's been a pleasure.
  • Tinkerputt: We're happy to help.
  • Boyd: Do you know about Shining Time Station?
  • Ash: It's where we put things right.
  • Mary: Why don't you join in?
  • Tina: Yes!
  • Luci: We've been pleased to help.
  • (Mr. Conductor 1 appears at that moment)
  • Mr. Conductor 1: As I promised.
  • Michael: Mr. Conductor 1!
  • Derek: We've left Barney since he, Baby Bop, B.J. and Riff are in Kids For Character.
  • Amy: Amazing!
  • Mel: Then, you're all ready.
  • Kathy: I haven't known for something.
  • Shawn: Did Thomas get into trouble?
  • Mr. Conductor 1: Of course, Shawn. He got brake problems you know. Let me explain.
  • (Mr. Conductor 1 blows his whistle and The Runaway starts)
  • Mr. Conductor 1: Thomas the Tank Engine was ill. Workmen had been trying to make him better, but it was no use.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Edward must take you to the works.
  • Mr. Conductor 1: Said Sir Topham Hatt.
  • (Edward's whistle toots)
  • Mr. Conductor 1: Thomas felt very miserable. Then, Sir Topham Hatt spoke to Duck.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: I want you to help Percy and Toby while Thomas is away.
  • Mr. Conductor 1: Duck was delighted. He already knew Percy and soon made friends with Toby and Bertie. Terence the Tractor gave him a big welcome too.
  • Terence: Take care of Thomas' coaches.
  • Mr. Conductor 1: He advised.
  • Terence: He's sure to miss them while he's away.
  • (Duck's whistle toots)
  • Mr. Conductor 1: Duck was very gentle with the coaches. Annie and Clarabel were impressed.
  • Annie and Clarabel: Such nice manners.
  • Mr. Conductor 1: They told each other.
  • Annie and Clarabel: It really is a pleasure to go out with him.
  • (Duck's whistle toots)
  • Mr. Conductor 1: When Thomas came back, Annie and Clarabel told him how well duck had managed. Thomas was so pleased to be home that he soon forgot to be jealous.
  • (Thomas' whistle toots)
  • Mr. Conductor 1: The works have left Thomas' handbrake very stiff. It made his brakes seen they were on, when in fact they were not. As a result, he and his coaches often overran the platform. Thomas found this most embarrasing. Gradually, his driver and fireman learned to be extra careful. But one day, Thomas' fireman was ill and a relief man took his place.
  • (Thomas' whistle toots)
  • Mr. Conductor 1: The fireman had fastened the coupling and joined the driver and stationmaster on the platform to wait for Henry's passengers. The fireman had forgot all about Thomas' handbrake. Thomas simmered happily.
  • Thomas: Not long now.
  • Mr. Conductor 1: He tought. As he saw Henry slowly approaching. But Thomas' brakes were not on and suddenly he felt his wheels begin to move. He tried to stop, but he couldn't without his driver and fireman. He tried to whistle a warning, but he couldn't do that either. The Conductor, driver friman and passengers were all stranded on the platform.
  • Annie and Clarabel: Stop! Stop!
  • Mr. Conductor 1: Shreiked Annie and Clarabel. But Thomas, with plenty of steam, kept on going. The alarm went down the line.
  • Signalman: Stop the runaway!
  • Mr. Conductor 1: There ready for action was Harold the Helicopter. The inspector had made a plan and together they took off into the sky. At last Thomas was tiring.
  • Thomas: I need to stop, i need to stop.
  • Mr. Conductor 1: He panted weirdly. As they neared the next station Thomas saw Harold land. They entered the platform slowly enough for the inspector to act. Judging his moments the inspector scrambled into the cab and screwed the brakes on.
  • (The inspector brakes with all his strength)
  • Mr. Conductor 1: At last Thomas stopped. Both he and the inspector were very relieved. Then they thanked Harold.
  • Harold: Think nothing of it. Glad to be at service anytime.
  • Inspector: Thomas.
  • Mr. Conductor 1: Remarked The inspector.
  • Inspector: You must never let this happen again.
  • Mr. Conductor 1: Weirdly, Thomas agreed with him.
  • (The Runaway ends)
  • Mr. Conductor 1: So that's why brakes can be dangerous.
  • Rikochet: That's true, isn't it?
  • Flea: The Flea knows you're leaving, right?
  • Mr. Conductor 1: Yep.
  • (Mr. Conductor 1 disappears)
  • Virgil: Let's take you kids on a tour.
  • Richie: Come on.
  • The Backyard Gang: Okay.
  • (Inside the Jukebox)
  • Tito: It seems like a new day.
  • Didi: Indeed.
  • Tex: Why don't we all sing a Barney song.
  • Rex: Bingo.
  • Grace: What about The Gang's All Here.
  • Tito: Good idea. A one, a two, a one, two, three, four.
  • (Tito sings The Gang's All Here)
  • Tito: Hey, hey, the gang's all here We're gonna do a real show It's gonna be a big show! Hooray, hooray The gang's all here So let's begin to work right now. Hey, hey, the gang's all here We're gonna do a real show It's gonna be a big show! Hooray, hooray The gang's all here So let's begin to work right now.
  • (Music continues)
  • (The Gang's All Here ends)
  • (Meanwhile, Schemer and Schemee are with Team Rocket, looking at the remodeled station)
  • Schemer: Wow, this station is just like Barney and Friends Seasons 4-6.
  • Schemee: It's a new set.
  • Jessie: Look at that!
  • James: We'd say it's our favor.
  • Meowth: Let's do this!
  • Wobbuffet: Wobbuffet!
  • (We find Mr. Conductor 1 with Tina and Luci)
  • Tina: Thomas is having his first song ever.
  • Luci: Can you please take us to the Anything Tunnel?
  • Mr. Conductor 1: Right away.
  • (We zoom to the Anything Tunnel and Thomas' Anthem starts)
  • Children: (singing) It's Thomas the Tank Engine. Hip, hip, hip, hip, hooray! Chugga-chugga, chugg, chugg Chuff, chuff, chuff. He rides along the way. And when you hear that whistle, It can only be one train. Our favourite little engine, Thomas is his name! Thomas the Tank Engine rolling along, (whistling) All of his friends will be coming along.

Thomas the Tank Engine rolling along, (whistling) All of his friends will be coming along. Thomas we love you, Thomas we love you, Thomas, We love you!
  • (Whistle blowing)
  • (Thomas' Anthem ends)
  • Mr. Conductor 1: So it's Thomas' first song on the Island of Sodor.
  • Min: Interesting.
  • Tosha: We are so happy to have us and the other Backyard Kids join in.
  • Mr. Conductor 1: And so do the YTV characters.
  • Joey: I never thought about it.
  • Tristan: Did Gordon go on the wrong line?
  • Mr. Conductor 1: Yes, Tristan. He took the accidental line by mistake. Let me explain.
  • (Mr. Conductor 1 blows his whistle and Wrong Road starts)
  • Mr. Conductor 1: Thomas' branch line is important and so is Edward. But their tracks and bridges are not so strong as those on the main line. Sir Topham Hatt does not allow the heavier main line engines like Gordon to run on them. But one day, the way Gordon was talking, he would have tought Sir Topham Hatt had given this order for quite another reason.
  • Gordon: It's not fair!
  • Mr. Conductor 1: Grumbled Gordon.
  • Edward: What isn't fair?
  • Mr. Conductor 1: Asked Edward.
  • Gordon: Letting branch line diesels pull main line trains.
  • Edward: Never mind, Gordon. I'm sure BoCo will let you pull his freight cars sometimes.
  • Mr. Conductor 1: Gordon spluttered.
  • Gordon: I wont pull BoCo's dirty cars. I wont run on branch lines.
  • Edward: Why not it will be a nice change.
  • Gordon: Sir Topham Hatt would never approve.
  • Mr. Conductor 1: Huffed Gordon.
  • Gordon: Branch lines are vulgar.
  • Mr. Conductor 1: Gordon puffed away. Edward chuckled and followed him to the station. Every evening the two engines pulled two fast trains from the station. Gordon always leaves first with an express for the main line. Edward follows five minutes later with his train for the branch line. Usually everything runs like clockwork. But tonight there was trouble. A Lady in a green floppy hat was saying goodbye to a friend. It was nearly time for Gordon to start. The fireman looked back towards the conductor's van and saw something green waving.
  • Gordon's Fireman: Right away, mate!
  • Mr. Conductor 1: He tought the conductor had waved his flag. Gordon started. Leaving luggage, his passengers and the conductor all standing on the platform. Everyone was very surprised and cross. To make matters worse, by the time Gordon had been stopped and brought back, Edward was already late with his train.
  • (Edward's whistle toots)
  • Mr. Conductor 1: So now, he set off first. But the signalman at the junction wasn't told about the change. By mistake, he sent Edward along the main line. Gordon was sent along the branch and arrived cold and cross on one of the sidings near the harbour. Next morning, Bill and Ben peeped into the yard. There were no cars for them but they didn't mind that. Teasing Gordon will be much better fun.
  • Bill: What's that?
  • Mr. Conductor 1: Asked Bill?
  • Ben: Sheesh!
  • Mr. Conductor 1: Whispered Ben.
  • Ben: It's Gordon.
  • Bill: It looks like Gordon but it can't be. Gordon never comes on the branch lines. He thinks they're vulgar.
  • Mr. Conductor 1: Gordon pretended he hadn't heard.
  • Ben: If it isn't Gordon.
  • Mr. Conductor 1: Said Ben.
  • Ben: It's just a pile of Old Iron.
  • Bill: Which we better take it to the scrapyard.
  • Ben: No Bill, this blocks used for scrap we'll take it to the harbour and dump it in the sea.
  • (Gordon's Whistle toots)
  • Mr. Conductor 1: Gordon was alarmed.
  • Gordon: I am Gordon. Stop, stop!
  • Mr. Conductor 1: When BoCo suddenly arrived, Gordon thought him the most beautiful sight he had ever been.
  • Gordon: BoCo, my dear engine, save me.
  • Mr. Conductor 1: BoCo quickly sized up the situation and threathened to take away the cars he brought for Bill and Ben. This made the twin behave at once. Gordon tought BoCo was wonderful.
  • Gordon: Those little demons. How do you do it?
  • BoCo: Ah well.
  • Mr. Conductor 1: Said BoCo.
  • BoCo: It's just a knack.
  • Mr. Conductor 1: Gordon still believed that BoCo saved his life. But he knows the twins were only teasing. Don't we?
  • (Wrong Road ends)
  • Mr. Conductor 1: So that's why Gordon took the wrong line by mistake.
  • Jade: That's true.
  • Buena Girl: You'd be leaving, right?
  • Mr. Conductor 1: Yep.
  • (Mr. Conductor 1 disappears)
  • Stacy: Well, it's all in good order.
  • Harry: I've been back from Fort Farley ever since.
  • Billy: You kids are new to the pack.
  • Michael: Yes!
  • Derek: All right!
  • Scooby: You know what they say? A friendship never lasts.
  • Shaggy: Like, that's the spirit!
  • (They both high five each other as we end this episode)
  • (We then fade to the outro with the train from the same opening)
  • (While the end credits roll, Everything Is Not What It Seems plays)
  • Chorus: Well you know everything's gonna be a breeze At the end will no doubt justify the means You can fix any problem with the slightest ease (Yes please) But you might find out it'll go to your head When you write a report, on a book you've never read And with the snap of your fingers, you can make your bed! (That's what I said) Everything is not what it seems When you can get all you wanted in your wildest dreams You might run into trouble if you go to extremes Because everything is not what it seems Everything is not what it seems, When you can have what you want by the simplest of means Be careful not to mess with the balance of things Because everything is not....what it seems.
