  • (We are then followed by the 2004 Season 5 intro and we start Thomas Gets Tricked)
  • Ringo Starr: Thomas is a tank engine who lives at the big station of the Island of Sodor. He's a cheeky little engine with six small wheels, a short stumpy funnel, a short stumpy boiler and a short stumpy dome. He's a fussy little engine too. Always pulling coaches about ready for the big engines can take on long journeys. And when trains come in, he pulls the empty coaches away so that the big engines can go on rest. Thomas thinks no engine works has hard as he does. He loves playing tricks on them, including Gordon the biggest and proudest engine of all. Thomas likes to tease Gordon with his whistle.
  • Thomas: Wake up, lazybones. Why don't you work hard like me?
  • Ringo Starr: One day after pulling the big express, Gordon had arrived back on the sidings very tired. He was just going to sleep when Thomas came up in his cheeky way.
  • Thomas: Wake up, lazybones. Do some hard work for a change. You can't catch me!
  • Ringo Starr: And off Thomas ran laughing. Instead of going to sleep again, Gordon thought how he can back at Thomas. One morning, Thomas wouldn't wake up. His driver and fireman couldn't make him start. His fire went out and there was not enough steam. It was nearly time for the express. People are waiting, but the coaches weren't ready. At last, Thomas started.
  • Thomas: Oh dear, oh dear!
  • Ringo Starr: He yawned. He fussed into the station where Gordon was waiting.
  • Gordon: Hurry up, you!
  • Ringo Starr: Said Gordon.
  • Thomas: Hurry yourself.
  • Ringo Starr: Replied Thomas. Gordon the proud engine began making his plan to teach Thomas a lesson for teasing him. Almost before the coaches had stopped moving, Gordon reversed quickly and was coupled to the train.
  • Gordon: Get in quickly, please!
  • Ringo Starr: He whistled. Thomas usually pushed behind the big trains to help them start, but he was always uncoupled first. This time, Gordon start so quickly they forgot to uncouple Thomas. Gordon's chance had come.
  • Gordon: Come on, come on!
  • Ringo Starr: Puffed Gordon to the coaches. The train went faster and faster. Too fast for Thomas, he wanted to stop, but he couldn't.
  • Thomas: Peep peep! Stop, stop!
  • Gordon: Hurry, hurry, hurry!
  • Ringo Starr: Laughed Gordon.
  • Coaches: You can't get away, you can't get away!
  • Ringo Starr: Laughed the coaches. Poor Thomas was going faster than he had ever gone before. He was out of breath and his wheels hurt him, but he had to go on.
  • Thomas: I shall never be the same again.
  • Ringo Starr: He thought sadly.
  • Thomas: My wheels will be quite worn out.
  • Ringo Starr: At last, they stopped at the station. Thomas was uncoupled and he felt very silly and exhausted. Next he went on to the turntable thinking of everyone laughing at him. And then he ran on to a siding out of the way.
  • Gordon: Well, little Thomas.
  • Ringo Starr: Chuckled Gordon.
  • Gordon: Now you know what hard work means, don't you?
  • Ringo Starr: Poor Thomas couldn't answer. He had no breath. He just puffed slowly away to rest and had a long long drink.
  • Thomas: Maybe I don't have to tease Gordon to feel important.
  • Ringo Starr: Thomas thought to himself. And he puffed slowly home.
  • (A nameplate sequence occurs and we begin Woolly Bear)
  • Ringo Starr: In the summer, the work crews cut the long grass along the tracks, raking it into heaps to dry in the sun. At this time of year, Percy stops where they have been cutting. The men load up his empty wagons and he pulls them to the staiton.
  • (The workmen chatter indistinctly. Percy's whistle toots)
  • Ringo Starr: Toby then takes them to the hills for the farmers to feed their stock.
  • (Toby's bell rings)
  • (Percy's whistle toots loudly)
  • Percy: Wheeeesh!
  • Ringo Starr: Percy gave a ghostly whistle.
  • Percy: Don't be frightened, Thomas.
  • Ringo Starr: He laughed.
  • Percy: It's only me.
  • Thomas: Your ugly fizz is enough to frighten anyone.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Thomas.
  • Thomas: You're like ugly, indeed.
  • Percy: I'm...
  • Thomas: A green caterpillar with red stripes.
  • Ringo Starr: Continued Thomas firmly.
  • Thomas: You crawl like one too.
  • Percy: I don't.
  • Thomas: Who's been late every afternoon this week?
  • Percy: It's the hay.
  • Thomas: I can't help that.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Thomas.
  • Thomas. Time's time, and Sir Topham Hatt relies on me to keep it. I can't if you crawl in the hay until all hours.
  • Percy: Green caterpillar indeed.
  • Ringo Starr: Fumed Percy. He set off to collect some hay to take to the habor.
  • Percy: Everyone says I'm handsome, or at least nearly everyone. Anyway, my curves are better than Thomas' corners. Thomas says I'm always late.
  • Ringo Starr: He grumbled.
  • Percy: I'm never late, or at least only a few minutes. What's that to Thomas? He can always catch up time further on.
  • Ringo Starr: All the same, he and his driver decided to start home early. Then came trouble.
  • (A treacle crate drops on Percy)
  • Ringo Starr: A crate of treacle was upset all over Percy. Percy was cross. He was still sticky when he puffed away.
  • (Percy puffs into the wind)
  • Ringo Starr: The wind was blowing fiercely.
  • Percy's Driver: Look at that!
  • Ringo Starr: Exclaimed the driver. The wind caught the piled hay, tossing it up and over the tracks. The line climbed here.
  • Percy's Driver: Take a run at it, Percy.
  • Ringo Starr: His driver advised. Percy gathered speed. But the hay made the rails slippery, and his wheels wouldn't grip. Time after time, he stalled with spinning wheels and had to wait until the line ahead was clear before he could start again.
  • (The wind continues blowing)
  • Ringo Starr: Everyone was waiting. Thomas seethed impatiently.
  • Thomas: 10 minutes late. I warned him, passengers will complain and Sir Topham Hatt...
  • Ringo Starr: Then they all saw Percy. The laughed and shouted.
  • (The people laugh at Percy)
  • Percy: Sorry I'm late.
  • Ringo Starr: Percy panted.
  • Thomas: Look what's crawled out of the hay.
  • Ringo Starr: Teased Thomas.
  • Percy: What's wrong?
  • Ringo Starr: Asked Percy.
  • Thomas: Talk about hairy caterpillars.
  • Ringo Starr: Puffed Thomas.
  • Thomas: It's worth being late to have seeing you.
  • Ringo Starr: When Percy got home, his driver showed him what he looked in a mirror.
  • (Percy is shocked when he sees himself in the mirror)
  • Percy: Bust my buffers. No wonder they all laughed. I'm just like a woolly bear. Please clean me before Toby comes.
  • Ringo Starr: But it was no good. Thomas told Toby all about it.
  • (The workmen get the hay off Percy)
  • Ringo Starr: Instead of talking about sensible things like playing ghosts, Thomas and Toby made jokes about woolly bear caterpillars and other creatures which crawl about in hay. They laughed a lot, but Percy thought they were really being very silly indeed.
  • (Another nameplate sequence occurs and we begin Thomas, Percy and The Dragon)
  • Alec Baldwin: Thomas and Percy are good friends, but sometimes Percy teases Thomas about being frightened and he doesn't like that at all. One evening he was dozing happily in the shed, but Percy wanted to talk.
  • Percy: Wake up, Thomas. Are you dreaming about the time you thought I was a ghost?
  • Thomas: Certainly not. Anyway, I was only pretending to be scared. I knew it was your really.
  • Alec Baldwin: Percy went on teasing him.
  • Percy: I hope the guard leaves the light on for you tonight.
  • Thomas: Why?
  • Alec Baldwin: Asked Thomas.
  • Thomas: I quite like the dark.
  • Percy: Oh really?
  • Alec Baldwin: Explained Percy.
  • Percy: I am surprised. I'd always thought you were afraid of the dark. I wonder why?
  • Alec Baldwin: Thomas decided to say nothing and went to sleep instead. Next day, Sir Topham Hatt came to see him.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: I would like you to go to the harbour tonight to collect something rather unusual.
  • Thomas: What sort of something?
  • Alec Baldwin: Asked Thomas.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Wait and see.
  • Alec Baldwin: Meanwhile, Percy was moving some freight cars into a siding. Henry arrived with his goods train. The signalman changed the points and Percy waited on the siding until Henry had steamed by. Then, there was trouble.
  • The Signalman: The points are jammed.
  • Alec Baldwin: Called the signalman.
  • The Signalman: I can't switch them back. The workmen will have to mend them in the morning. It's too late now.
  • Percy's Driver: Hmmm.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Percy's Driver.
  • Percy's Driver: I'm sorry, Percy. But you will have to stay here tonight.
  • Percy: Where are you going?
  • Alec Baldwin: Asked Percy.
  • Percy's Fireman: Home for tea.
  • Alec Baldwin: Replied the fireman. Percy was speechless. He watched as the other engines went home to the shed. Night-time came and Percy began to feel very lonely.
  • Percy: Oh dear.
  • Alec Baldwin: He murmured.
  • Percy: It's very dark.
  • (Owl hoots)
  • Percy: OH! OH! What's that?!
  • Alec Baldwin: It was only an owl, but Percy didn't realize this.
  • Percy: I wish Thomas were here too.
  • Alec Baldwin: He sighed. Thomas was waiting for his mysterious load at the harbour. Suddenly, there is was.
  • (The Chinese Dragon appears)
  • Thomas: Cinders and Ashes!
  • Alec Baldwin: Cried Thomas.
  • Thomas: It's a dragon!
  • Thomas's Driver: Don't worry.
  • Alec Baldwin: Laughed his driver.
  • Thomas' Driver: This dragon is made of paper. It's for the carnival tomorrow.
  • Alec Baldwin: Workmen lifted the dragon onto Thomas' flatbed and put lights all around it for protection. Then, Thomas set off into the misty night. Percy was asleep on his siding and had no idea that Thomas was approaching him.
  • (Thomas and the dragon come up next to Percy)
  • Alec Baldwin: Percy woke up with a start.
  • Percy: Help!
  • Alec Baldwin: Cried Percy.
  • Percy: I'm not going to open my eyes until my driver comes.
  • Alec Baldwin: Next morning the points were mended and Percy puffed back to the junction. Gordon was just about to leave with the express.
  • Percy: You'll never guess what I saw last night.
  • Alec Baldwin: Gordon was in no mood for puzzles.
  • Gordon: I'm a busy engine. I don't have time for your games.
  • Percy: I've seen a huge dragon. It was covered in lights.
  • Alec Baldwin: Gordon snorted.
  • Gordon: You've been in the sun too long. Your dome has cracked.
  • Alec Baldwin: When the other engines heard the news, they laughed too.
  • James: Look out, Percy!
  • Alec Baldwin: Chuckled James.
  • James: Or the dragon may gobble you up!
  • Percy: No-one believes me.
  • Alec Baldwin: Huffed Percy.
  • Percy: Maybe I did imagine the dragon after all.
  • Alec Baldwin: But Percy soon found out that he hadn't.
  • Percy: (screams) AAAAAHH!! Help! Save me!
  • Thomas: It's alright.
  • Alec Baldwin: Whistled Thomas. And, he explained about the carnival.
  • Thomas: By the way, how was your night out?
  • Alec Baldwin: Percy decided to tell Thomas the truth.
  • Thomas: Well, Percy.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Thomas.
  • Thomas: Maybe we do get scared sometimes, but if we're not afraid to tell each other, then that means we're quite brave too.
  • (Another nameplate sequence occurs and we begin Wrong Road)
  • Ringo Starr: 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 thought Sir Topham Hatt had given this order for quite another reason.
  • Gordon: It's not fair!
  • Ringo Starr: Grumbled Gordon.
  • Edward: What isn't fair?
  • Ringo Starr: 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.
  • Ringo Starr: 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.
  • Ringo Starr: Huffed Gordon.
  • Gordon: Branch lines are vulgar.
  • Ringo Starr: 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!
  • Ringo Starr: He thought 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)
  • Ringo Starr: 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?
  • Ringo Starr: Asked Bill?
  • Ben: Shh!
  • Ringo Starr: 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.
  • Ringo Starr: Gordon pretended he hadn't heard.
  • Ben: If it isn't Gordon.
  • Ringo Starr: 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)
  • Ringo Starr: Gordon was alarmed.
  • Gordon: I am Gordon. Stop, stop!
  • Ringo Starr: When BoCo suddenly arrived, Gordon thought him the most beautiful sight he had ever been.
  • Gordon: BoCo, my dear engine, save me.
  • Ringo Starr: 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.
  • Ringo Starr: Whispered BoCo.
  • BoCo: It's just a knack.
  • Ringo Starr: Gordon still believed that BoCo saved his life. But he knows the twins were only teasing. Don't we?
  • (Another nameplate sequence occurs and we begin Percy Takes The Plunge)
  • Ringo Starr: One day, Henry wanted a rest, but Percy was talking to some engines. He was telling them about the time he had brave bad weather to help Thomas.
  • Percy: It was raining hard. Water swirled under my boiler. I couldn't see where I was going, but I struggled on.
  • Bill: Oh, Percy, you are brave.
  • Percy: Well, it wasn't anything really. Water's nothing to an engine with determination.
  • Ben: Tell us more, Percy.
  • Henry: What are you engines doing here?
  • Ringo Starr: Hissed Henry.
  • Henry: This shed is for Sir Topham Hatt's engines. Go away. Silly things.
  • Ringo Starr: Henry snorted.
  • Percy: They're not silly.
  • Ringo Starr: Percy had been enjoying himself.
  • Henry: They are silly and so are you. Water's nothing to an engine with determination. Huh.
  • Percy: Anyway.
  • Ringo Starr: Said cheeky Percy.
  • Percy: I'm not afraid of water, I like it.
  • Ringo Starr: He ran off to the harbour singing.
  • Percy: Once an engine attached to a train, was afraid of a few drops of rain.
  • Henry: No one ever lets me forget the time i wouldn't come out of the tunnel in case the rain spoiled my paint.
  • Ringo Starr: Huffed Henry. Thomas was looking at the board on the key.
  • Thomas: Danger. We mustn't go passed it.
  • Ringo Starr: He said.
  • Thomas: That's orders.
  • Percy: Why?
  • Thomas: Danger means falling down something.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Thomas.
  • Thomas: I went pass danger once, and fell down a mine.
  • Percy: I can't see a mine.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Percy. He didn't know that the foundations of the key had sunk. The rails now sloped down into the sea.
  • Percy: Stupid board.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Percy. Percy made a plan. One day, he whispered to the cars.
  • Percy: Will you give me a bump when we get to the key?
  • Ringo Starr: The cars had never asked to bump an engine before. They giggled and chattered about it.
  • Percy: Driver doesn't know my plan.
  • Ringo Starr: Chuckled Percy.
  • Cars: On, on, on!
  • Ringo Starr: Laughed the cars. Percy thought they were helping.
  • Percy: I'll pretend to stop at the station, but the cars will push me pass the board. Then I'll make them stop. I can do that wherever I like.
  • Ringo Starr: Every wise engine knows that you cannot trust freight cars.
  • Cars: Go on, go on!
  • Ringo Starr: They yelled, and bumped Percy's driver and fireman off the footplate.
  • Percy: Oh!
  • Ringo Starr: Said Percy, sliding pass the board. Percy was frantic.
  • Percy: That's enough!
  • Ringo Starr: Percy was sunked.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: You are a very disobeident engine.
  • Ringo Starr: Percy knew that voice.
  • Percy: Please, sir, get me out, sir, I'm truly sorry, sir.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: No, Percy, we cannot do that till high tide. I hope it will teach you to take care of yourself.
  • Percy: Yes, sir.
  • Ringo Starr: It was dark when they brought floating cranes to rescue Percy. He was too cold and stiff to move by himself. Next day, he was sent to the works on Henry's freight train.
  • Henry: Well, well, well!
  • Ringo Starr: Chuckled Henry.
  • Henry: Did you like the water?
  • Percy: No.
  • Henry: I am surprised. You need more determination, Percy. Water's nothing to an engine with determination you know. Perhaps you will like it better next time.
  • Ringo Starr: Percy is quite determined that they'll won't be a next time.
  • (Another nameplate sequence occurs and we begin A Proud Day For James)
  • Ringo Starr: One night, Henry and Gordon were alone with James. Altough Sir Topham Hatt was beginning to think well of them. Whenever a chance came the other engines will talk of nothing but bootlace.
  • Henry: Remember when they had to use a bootlace to get you out of trouble James?
  • Ringo Starr: They would tease. James tried to get back by talking about Henry who got shut up in a tunnel and Gordon who got stuck on a hill. But they wouldn't listen.
  • Gordon: You talk too much little James.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Gordon.
  • Gordon: A fine strong engine like me has something to talk about. I'm the only engine who can pull the express. When I'm not there, they need two engines. Think of that. I've pulled expresses for years, and have never once lost my way. I seem to know the right line by instinct.
  • Ringo Starr: Every wise engine knows, of course, that the signalman sets the the switches to make the engines run on the right track. But Gordon was so proud he had forgotten.
  • Gordon: Wake up, James.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Gordon next morning.
  • Gordon: It's nearly time for the express. What are you doing? Odd Jobs? Ah well. We all have to begin somewhere, don't we? Run along and get my coaches. Don't be late.
  • Ringo Starr: James went to get Gordon's coaches. They were all shining with new paint. He was careful not to bump them and they followed him smoothly into the station, singing happily...
  • Coaches: We're going away, we're going away.
  • James: I wish I was going with you.
  • Ringo Starr: Said James.
  • James: I should love to pull the express and go flying above the line!
  • Ringo Starr: Gordon with much noise and blowing off steam, got ready to back on to the train. Sir Topham Hatt was on the train with other important people and as soon as they heard the conductor's whistle, Gordon started.
  • Gordon: Look at me now! Look at me now!
  • Ringo Starr: He puffed and the coaches glided after him.
  • Gordon: Poop poop poop poop poop! Goodbye, little James, see you tomorrow!
  • Ringo Starr: James watched the train disappeared and then went back to work. He pushed some freight cars into their proper sidings and went to fetch the coaches for another train. James had just brought the coaches into the platform when he heard a mournful noise. There was Gordon trying to sneak into the station without being noticed.
  • James: Hello, Gordon. Is it tomorrow?
  • Ringo Starr: Asked James. Gordon didn't answer. He just let off steam feebly.
  • James: Did you lose your weight, Gordon?
  • Ringo Starr: Said James.
  • Gordon: No, it was lost for me. I was switched off the main line onto the loop. I have to go all around and back again.
  • James: Perhaps it was instinct.
  • Ringo Starr: Said James. Meanwhile, all the passengers hurried to the ticket window.
  • Passengers: We want our money back!
  • Ringo Starr: They shouted. But Sir Topham Hatt climbed onto a cart and blew the conductor's whistle so loudly that they all stopped to look at him. Then he promised a new train at once.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Gordon can't do it.
  • Ringo Starr: He said.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Will you pull it for us, James?
  • James: Yes sir, I'll try.
  • Ringo Starr: So James was coupled on, and everyone got in.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Do your best, James.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Sir Topham Hatt.
  • James: Come along, come along!
  • Ringo Starr: Said James.
  • Coaches: You're pulling us well, you're pulling us well!
  • Ringo Starr: Sang the coaches. Bridges and stations flashed by the passengers cheered and they soon reached the station. Everyone said thank you to James and Sir Topham Hatt was very impressed.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Well done.
  • Ringo Starr: He said.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Would you like to pull the express sometimes?
  • James: Yes, please.
  • Ringo Starr: Answered James. Next day when James came by, Gordon was pushing freight cars.
  • Gordon: I like some quiet work for a change.
  • Ringo Starr: He said.
  • Gordon: I'm teaching these cars manners. You did well with those coaches I hear. Good, we'll show them.
  • Ringo Starr: And he gave his cars a bump. James and Gordon are now good friends. James sometimes takes the express to give Gordon a rest. Gordon never talks about bootlaces, and they are both quite agreed on a subject of freight cars.
  • (Another nameplate sequence occurs and we begin Gordon and The Famous Visitor)
  • Alec Baldwin: It was an important day in the yard. Everyone was excited, making notes and taking photographs. A special visitor had arrived, and was now the center of attention.
  • Thomas: Who's that?
  • Alec Baldwin: Whispered Thomas to Duck.
  • Duck: That,
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Duck proudly,
  • Duck: Is a celebrity.
  • Percy: A what?
  • Alec Baldwin: Asked Percy.
  • Duck: A celebrity is a very famous engine.
  • Alec Baldwin: Replied Duck.
  • Duck: Driver says we can talk to him soon.
  • Thomas: Oh,
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Thomas.
  • Thomas: He's probably too famous to even notice us.
  • Alec Baldwin: Just then, Gordon arrived.
  • Gordon: Pah!
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Gordon.
  • Gordon: Who cares? A lot of fuss about nothing, if you ask me.
  • Alec Baldwin: And he steamed away. Later that night, the engines found that the visitor wasn't concieted at all. He enjoyed talking the engines, till' long after the stars came out. He left early next morning. Gordon was still complaining.
  • Gordon: Good riddance.
  • Alec Baldwin: He Grumbled.
  • Gordon: Chattering all night. Who is he, anyway?
  • Thomas: Duck told you,
  • Alec Baldwin: Replied Thomas.
  • Thomas: He's famous.
  • Gordon: As famous as me? Nonsense.
  • Thomas: He's famouser than you. He went 100 miles an hour before you were thought of.
  • Gordon: Huh. So he says,
  • Alec Baldwin: Huffed Gordon.
  • Gordon: But I didn't like his looks. He's got no armor. Never trust domeless engines. They're not respectable. I never boast, but I'd say that 100 miles an hour would be easy for me. Goodbye.
  • Alec Baldwin: Duck took some freight cars to Edward's station.
  • Edward: Hello.
  • Alec Baldwin: Called Edward.
  • Edward: That famous engine came through this morning. He whistled to me. Wasn't he kind?
  • Duck: He's the finest engine in the world.
  • Alec Baldwin: Replied Duck, then he told Edward what Gordon had said.
  • Edward: Take no notice.
  • Alec Baldwin: Soothed Edward.
  • Edward: He's just jealous. He thinks no engine should be famous but him. Look, he's coming now.
  • Alec Baldwin: Gordon was running very fast. His wheels pounded the rails.
  • Gordon: He did it, I'll do it. He did it, I'll do it!
  • Alec Baldwin: Gordon's train rocketed past, and was gone.
  • Duck: He'll knock himself to bits!
  • Alec Baldwin: Chuckled Duck. Gordon's driver eased him off.
  • Gordon's Driver: Steady, Gordon. We aren't running a race.
  • Gordon: We are, then.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Gordon, but he said it to himself. Suddenly, Gordon began to feel a little strange.
  • Gordon: The top of my boiler seems funny.
  • Alec Baldwin: He thought.
  • Gordon: It feels as if something is loose! I'd better go slower.
  • Alec Baldwin: But it was too late. On the viaduct, they met the wind. It was a teasing wind that blew suddenly at hard puffs. Gordon thought it wanted to push him off the bridge.
  • Gordon: No, you don't!
  • Alec Baldwin: He said firmly. But the wind had other ideas. It curled round his boiler, crept under his loose dome, and lifted off and away into the valley below. Gordon was most uncomfortable. The cold wind was whistling through his hole where his dome should be and he felt silly without it. At the big station, the Freight Cars laughed at him.
  • (Freight Cars laugh)
  • Alec Baldwin: Gordon tried to wheesh them away, but they crowded round, no matter what he did.
  • (Freight Cars continue laughing)
  • Alec Baldwin: On the way back home, he wanted his driver to stop and fetch his dome.
  • Gordon's Driver: We'll never find it now.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said his driver.
  • Gordon's Driver: You'll have to go to the workshop for a new one.
  • Alec Baldwin: Gordon was very cross.
  • Gordon: I hope the shed is empty tonight.
  • Alec Baldwin: He huffed to himself. But all the engines were there waiting.
  • A Voice: Never trust domeless engines.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said a voice from somewhere behind him.
  • A Voice: They aren't respectable.
  • (Another nameplate sequence occurs and we begin James Goes Buzz Buzz)
  • Alec Baldwin: 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.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said James.
  • James: You look as bright and cheerful as my red paint.
  • Trevor: Oh i am.
  • Alec Baldwin: Replied Trevor.
  • James: What's that noise?
  • Trevor: It's the bees.
  • Alec Baldwin: 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.
  • Alec Baldwin: Just then, BoCo the diesel engine hummed in.
  • BoCo: Take care you two. Don't make the bees angry. They might sting you.
  • Alec Baldwin: James didn't like being told what to do by a diesel and he buzzed away.
  • BoCo: Goodbye, Trevor.
  • Alec Baldwin: 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.
  • Alec Baldwin: 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.
  • Alec Baldwin: Chuckled Duck.
  • Duck: I sometimes call them "The Bees".
  • BoCo: A good name.
  • Alec Baldwin: Replied BoCo.
  • BoCo: Their terrors when the start buzzing around.
  • Alec Baldwin: Just then, 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.
  • Alec Baldwin: 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.
  • Alec Baldwin: 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!
  • Alec Baldwin: Hissed James. One bee burnt its foot.
  • Bee: Ooh! Aah! Ooh! Ooh!
  • Alec Baldwin: The bee thought James had burnt him on purpose. So it stung James right back on the nose.
  • (Doink!)
  • James: Eeeeeeeeeeee!
  • Alec Baldwin: 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.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said his driver.
  • Driver: We'll just have to get back to the orchard and fetch another hive.
  • Alec Baldwin: 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.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said his driver.
  • Driver: What you need now is a good hosedown.
  • Alec Baldwin: Later that evening, James was resting in the shed when the Vicar came to see him.
  • Vicar: Thank you for saving my bees.
  • Alec Baldwin: He said.
  • Vicar: It's the pity it's not Christmas, then we can call you James the Red-Nosed Engine.
  • Alec Baldwin: 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 Daisy)
  • Ringo Starr: Percy and Toby were worried. Thomas' recent accident had caused a great deal of trouble, and Sir Topham Hatt was waiting with them with important news.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Here...
  • Ringo Starr: He said.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: ...is Daisy the Diesel Rail-car, who has come to help while Thomas is...indisposed.
  • Percy: Please, sir?
  • Ringo Starr: Asked Percy.
  • Percy: Will she go, sir, when Thomas comes back, sir?
  • Sir Topham Hatt: That depends.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Meanwhile, however long she stays, I hope you will both make her welcome and comfortable.
  • Percy and Toby: Yes, sir, we'll try, sir.
  • Ringo Starr: Said the engines.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Good. Run along now and show her the shed. She will want a rest after her journey.
  • (Percy's whistle toots, Daisy's horn blows and Toby's bell rang)
  • Ringo Starr: Daisy was hard to pleased. She shuddered at the engine shed.
  • Daisy: This is dreadfully smelly. I'm highly sprung, and anything smelly is bad for my swerves.
  • Ringo Starr: Next, they tried the carriage shed.
  • (Percy's whistle toots, Toby's bell rang and Daisy's horn blows)
  • Daisy: This is better.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Daisy.
  • Daisy: But whatever is that rubbish?
  • Ringo Starr: The rubbish turned out to be Annie, Clarabel and Henrietta who were most offended.
  • Annie: We won't stay here to be insulted.
  • Ringo Starr: They fumed. Percy and Toby had to take them away and spend half the night soothing their hurt feelings.
  • (Toby's bell rang)
  • Ringo Starr: The engines woke next morning feeling exhausted. Daisy, on the other hand, felt bright and cheerful.
  • Daisy: Oooh! Oooh!
  • Ringo Starr: She tooted, as she came out of the yard and back to the station.
  • Daisy: Look at me.
  • Ringo Starr: She purred to the passengers.
  • Daisy: I'm the latest diesel, highly sprung and right up to date. You won't want Thomas' bumpy old Annie and Clarabel now.
  • Ringo Starr: The passengers waited for Daisy to start, but she didn't. She saw that the milk van was about to be coupled to her and was most indigment.
  • Daisy: Do they except me to pull that?
  • Daisy's Driver: Surley.
  • Ringo Starr: Said her driver.
  • Daisy's Driver: You can pull one van.
  • Daisy: I won't.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Daisy.
  • Daisy: Percy can do it. He loves messing about with freight cars.
  • Ringo Starr: She began to shudder violently.
  • Daisy's Driver: Nonsense.
  • Ringo Starr: Said her driver.
  • Daisy's Driver: Come on now, back down.
  • Ringo Starr: Daisy lurched backwards. She was so cross that she blew a fuse.
  • Daisy: Told you.
  • Ringo Starr: She said and stopped. Everyone argued with her but it was no use.
  • Daisy: It's fitter's orders.
  • Ringo Starr: She said.
  • Passengers: What is?
  • Daisy: My fitter's a very nice man. He comes every week and exames me carefully. Daisy, he says, never never pull. You're highly sprung and pulling is bad for your swerves. So that's how it is.
  • Ringo Starr: Finished Daisy.
  • Stationmaster: Stuff and nonsense.
  • Ringo Starr: Said the stationmaster.
  • Shunter: I can't understand.
  • Ringo Starr: Said the shunter.
  • Shunter: Whatever made Sir Topham Hatt send us such a feeble...
  • Daisy: Feeble? Feeble?!
  • Ringo Starr: Spluttered Daisy.
  • Daisy: Let me...
  • Passengers: Stop arguing!
  • Ringo Starr: Grumbled the passengers.
  • Passengers: We're late already.
  • Ringo Starr: So they uncoupled the van, and Daisy purred away feeling very pleased with herself. She can now enjoyed her journey.
  • Daisy: That's a good story.
  • Ringo Starr: She chuckled.
  • Daisy: I'll do just what work I choose, and no more.
  • Ringo Starr: But she said it to herself.
  • (Another nameplate sequence occurs and we begin Thomas and The Missing Christmas Tree)
  • Ringo Starr: It was two days before Christmas. Many children were expected on the Island of Sodor. All the engines were busy with the final preparations. Sir Topham Hatt wanted this year's carol party to be an extra special celebration. Sir Topham Hatt was now waiting impatiently for Thomas.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Quickly now.
  • Ringo Starr: He said.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Our Christmas tree has arrived just in time. I want you to fetch it, Thomas. Duck can look after Annie and Clarabel until you get back.
  • Thomas: Will we be able to sing carols too?
  • Ringo Starr: Asked Thomas.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: We'll see.
  • Ringo Starr: Promised Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Thomas: It would be nice to sing carols again.
  • Ringo Starr: Sighed Thomas as he set off on his important mission. Thomas collected the tree safely but large snowdrifts lay ahead.
  • Thomas: I musn't be late.
  • Ringo Starr: He thought.
  • Thomas: Sir Topham Hatt is relying on me.
  • Ringo Starr: Whistling bravely, Thomas tried to move. But he couldn't. There was worse to come. Thomas was snowed under. Meanwhile the other engines waited and waited. They were grumbling about Thomas for being late.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Silence!
  • Ringo Starr: Said Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Thomas left the works safely, but snow had brought the telephone lines down. We must assume he is stranded.
  • Ringo Starr: The engines now felt sorry for Thomas and cold but confident the twins set off to the rescue. Suddenly, they came to a drift that was deeper than the rest.
  • Thomas: Help!
  • Donald: Hush!
  • Ringo Starr: Said Donald.
  • Donald: I can hear something.
  • Douglas: Probally the wind.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Douglas.
  • Thomas: Help!
  • Donald: No listen.
  • Ringo Starr: Insisted Donald.
  • Thomas: Over here!
  • Douglas: Oh, it's Thomas. Come on the poor wee engine must be frozen to the frames in there.
  • Ringo Starr: When the workmen arrived, it took some time to decide how to dig away the drifts of snow. Thomas' driver and fireman, who had taken shelter at a nearby cottage, joined the rescue. At last, Thomas and the precious Christmas tree were free from the snowdrift. Then they set off once more to finish their long journey. Sir Topham Hatt greeted them warmly.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: As a reward for all your hard work, you may go and enjoy the carols. Be quick now.
  • Ringo Starr: At the big station, all was soon ready.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: One, two, three!
  • Ringo Starr: Suddenly like magic the station was flooded with lights.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Ladies and gentlemen and children, i give you three cheers for Thomas the Tank Engine and all his friends who had made this occasion possible.
  • Ringo Starr: Suddenly there was a strange whirring sound. Percy and Toby smiled, they knew who it was. With landing lights shining brightly, Harold the Helicopter touched down gently in the snow. Bringing the greatest surprise of all, Santa Claus. Everyone cheered and the party began.
  • Thomas: It's no fun getting stuck in the snow.
  • Ringo Starr: Whispered Thomas to Percy.
  • Thomas: But it was worth it for this party. Happy Christmas, Percy. Happy Christmas, everyone.
