  • (We open this video with the Britt Allcroft Presents logo)
  • (We then see the version 1 of Thomas US Season 4 intro and we begin Bulls Eyes)
  • George Carlin: Toby the Tram Engine has cowcatcher and sideplates. They helped to prevent animals from getting hurt if they should stray onto the line. Daisy thought Toby's fenders were silly.
  • Daisy: You're afraid of getting hurt yourself.
  • George Carlin: She flounced.
  • Toby: I'm not.
  • George Carlin: Huffed Toby.
  • Daisy: Yes you are. I don't have stupid cowcatchers but i'm not frightened. I just toot and they all go away.
  • Toby: But they don't.
  • George Carlin: Said Toby.
  • Daisy: They would with me. Animals always run if you toot and look them in the eye.
  • Toby: Even bulls?
  • Daisy: Even bulls.
  • George Carlin: Said Daisy. Daisy had never met a bull but she purred away quite unconcerned. She tooted at a farm crossing and the horse and cart halted while she went by.
  • Daisy: Huh!
  • George Carlin: She said.
  • Daisy: It's easy. I just toot and they all stand aside. Poor little Toby. I'm sorry he's frightened.
  • George Carlin: At the next station, a policeman was waiting.
  • Policeman: There's a bull on the line.
  • George Carlin: He warned.
  • Policeman: Please persuade it to return to the farmer.
  • George Carlin: Daisy was excited.
  • Daisy: Now...
  • George Carlin: She thought.
  • Daisy: ...I'll show Toby how to manage bulls.
  • George Carlin: Champion isn't really a fierce bull, but this morning he was cross. He'd strayed from his field, crashed through a fence, slithered down a slope and now he didn't know where he was. Suddenly, he saw some grass.
  • Champion: Now for my breakfast.
  • George Carlin: He thought.
  • Daisy: Oooh!
  • George Carlin: Tooted Daisy.
  • Daisy: Go on.
  • George Carlin: Champion was too busy chomping to take any notice.
  • Daisy: Ooh!
  • George Carlin: Said Daisy again. Champion kept grazing.
  • Daisy: This is all wrong.
  • George Carlin: Said Daisy.
  • Daisy: How can I look him in the eye if he wont turn around.
  • George Carlin: At last he did.
  • Champion: Moo!
  • George Carlin: Said Champion.
  • Daisy: Oo, oh, uh!
  • George Carlin: Murmured Daisy.
  • Daisy: Why doesn't he run away?
  • Daisy's Driver: Go on, Daisy.
  • George Carlin: Said her driver.
  • Daisy's Driver: He's harmless.
  • Daisy: Yes.
  • George Carlin: Said Daisy unhappily.
  • Daisy: You know he's harmless and I know he's harmless. But does he know. Look at his horns if i bump into him he might hurt, me uh, them. Uh, the farmer wouldn't like that.
  • George Carlin: Champion sniffed at Daisy.
  • (Champion starts sniffing)
  • Daisy: Ugh!
  • George Carlin: Said Daisy and that was that. Daisy did no more. Toby was bemused and amused to see her back in the station so soon.
  • Toby: Bulls always run if you toot and look them in the eye. Eh, Daisy?
  • George Carlin: Daisy stayed silent.
  • Toby: Ah, well.
  • George Carlin: Continued Toby.
  • Toby: We can live and learn. I better chase him away for you I suppose.
  • George Carlin: He clanked away to find Champion. Toby's bell rang and his whistle sounded but Champion took no notice. Then Toby whooshed loudly. That did the trick. Toby whooshed a little more and now breakfast over. Champion chauntered away to join the farmer. Daisy was feeling exhausted. She was glad when her day's work was over. Some boys were on the platform.
  • Boy: Look, Daisy.
  • George Carlin: One teased.
  • Boy: I've got some sweets. They're called Bulls Eyes. I like them do you.
  • Daisy: Ah, keep your old bulls eyes.
  • George Carlin: And Daisy scuttled to her shed.
  • (A nameplate sequence occurs and we begin Train Stops Play)
  • George Carlin: Stepney the Bluebell Engine was busy talking to the other engines. It was his first visit to their railway and he was having a splendid time.
  • Stepney: You are very lucky engines.
  • George Carlin: He said.
  • Stepney: Your line has got everything. It's long enough to give you a good run, and you have plenty of passengers. Then you have a quarry and a mine, so you'll need plenty of cars. Cars are fun. I missed them on our line.
  • George Carlin: Percy was surprised. All the engines thought cars were trouble.
  • Percy: You're welcome to take some of mine.
  • George Carlin: He said.
  • Percy: But you better ask driver first.
  • George Carlin: Their drivers agreed and the two engines set off. Thomas and Toby were speechless. Stepney took the cars to the harbour. Then he picked up the loaded ones and started back. Ahead was a cricket field. The game had just begun. Stepney and his driver had to wait at the signal.
  • Driver: Good.
  • George Carlin: Said his driver.
  • Driver: We can watch the game.
  • George Carlin: Then there was trouble. The batsman hit the ball. It flew high into the sky towards Stepney's train. Clunk went the signal. Thump went the ball into a car, but neither driver nor fireman heard it.
  • Players: Stop!
  • George Carlin: Yelled the players but Stepney didn't hear them.
  • Stepney: Come along, come along.
  • George Carlin: He puffed to the cars.
  • Players: Our one and only ball!
  • George Carlin: Cried the players.
  • Players: Wake up, Caroline.
  • George Carlin: They said to their old car.
  • Players: The chase was on.
  • George Carlin: Caroline coughed crossly and rolled down the road. Stepney wasn't hurrying. Caroline soon came up behind.
  • Caroline: Toot toot!
  • George Carlin: She wailed. The players shouted but Stepney was still too far for his driver and fireman to see or hear properly. They completely misunderstood.
  • Driver: If those jokers wanna race.
  • George Carlin: Said the driver.
  • Driver: They can have on. Faster, Stepney, faster!
  • George Carlin: Poor Caroline wasn't happy at all. She rattled along at twice her usual speed.
  • Caroline: I shouldn't be treated like this.
  • George Carlin: She grumbled.
  • Caroline: This pace is too hot for my system. It'll fuse all my circuits.
  • George Carlin: Suddenly, Stepney was nowhere to be seen.
  • Caroline: Yahoo! That silly train has run into a hole so we can't catch it. I can go home now.
  • George Carlin: But she couldn't. Her driver pounded Caroline on up the steep hill and then the other side toward the station. Stepney was already here when Caroline cluttered in.
  • Players: We need our ball back!
  • George Carlin: Cried the players and explained everything. The ball was nestled in some straw and the third car from the van.
  • Player: We found it!
  • George Carlin: Cried the player.
  • Driver: We're sorry.
  • George Carlin: Sighed the driver.
  • Player: Ah, you couldn't help it.
  • George Carlin: Replied the player.
  • Player: Now we must get back quickly.
  • Driver: You'll be lucky.
  • George Carlin: Said the driver.
  • Driver: Caroline looks worn out.
  • George Carlin: And she was. The driver spoke to the stationmaster and the signalman and they all agreed on the plan. Soon they rolled Caroline on to a flat car and a break van coupled behind. The players crowded in sight and Stepney pulled the train back to the playfield. Everyone enjoyed watching the game. Even Caroline was pleased. She doesn't think trains silly now.
  • (Another nameplate sequence occurs and we begin Percy's Ghostly Trick)
  • (Owl hooting)
  • (Ghostly 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.
  • (Thomas' whistle toots)
  • 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's whistle toots, owl hoots)
  • George Carlin: Percy knew where he was, even in the dark.
  • Percy: Crowe's Farm Crossing. We shan't be long now. (Whistle toots)
  • 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 whistle toots)
  • George Carlin: 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's bell rings)
  • 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.
  • (Percy's whistle toots)
  • Percy: 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: I'll chuff and I'll puff and I'll break your door in!
  • Thomas: Oh dear!
  • George Carlin: Explained Thomas.
  • Thomas: It's getting late. Oh, I have no idea. Oh, I must find Annie and Clarabel.
  • (Thomas' whistle toots)
  • 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 toots)
  • (Ghostly whistle)
  • 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!
  • (A nameplate sequence occurs and we begin Thomas, Percy and The Dragon)
  • George Carlin: 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.
  • George Carlin: Percy went on teasing him.
  • Percy: I hope the guard leaves the light on for you tonight.
  • Thomas: Why?
  • George Carlin: Asked Thomas.
  • Thomas: I quite like the dark.
  • Percy: Oh really?
  • George Carlin: Explained Percy.
  • Percy: I am surprised. I'd always thought you were afraid of the dark. I wonder why?
  • George Carlin: 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. You have to collect something rather unusual.
  • Thomas: What sort of something?
  • George Carlin: Asked Thomas.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Wait and see.
  • George Carlin: Replied Sir Topham Hatt. Meanwhile, Percy was moving some freight cars into a siding. Henry arrived with his goods train. The signalman changed the switches and Percy waited on the siding until Henry had steamed by. Then, there was trouble.
  • The Signalman: The switches are jammed.
  • George Carlin: Called the signalman.
  • The Signalman: I can't switch them back for Percy. The workmen will have to mend them in the morning. It's too late now.
  • Percy's Driver: Hmmm.
  • George Carlin: Said Percy's Driver.
  • Percy's Driver: I'm sorry, Percy. But you will have to stay here tonight.
  • Percy: Where are you going?
  • George Carlin: Asked Percy.
  • Percy's Fireman: Home for tea.
  • George Carlin: 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.
  • George Carlin: Murmured Percy.
  • Percy: It's very dark.
  • (Owl hoots)
  • Percy: OH! OH! What's that?!
  • George Carlin: It was only an owl, but Percy didn't realize this.
  • Percy: Oh, I wish Thomas was here too.
  • George Carlin: He sighed. Thomas was waiting for his mysterious load at the harbour. Suddenly, there is was.
  • (The Chinese Dragon appears)
  • Thomas: Cinders and Ashes!
  • George Carlin: Cried Thomas.
  • Thomas: It's a dragon!
  • Thomas's Driver: Don't worry.
  • George Carlin: Laughed his driver.
  • Thomas' Driver: This dragon is made of paper. It's for the carnival tomorrow.
  • George Carlin: Workmen lifted the dragon onto Thomas' load loader 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) Percy woke up with a start.
  • Percy: Help!
  • George Carlin: Cried Percy.
  • Percy: I'm not going to open my eyes until my driver comes.
  • George Carlin: Next morning the switches 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.
  • George Carlin: 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.
  • George Carlin: Gordon snorted.
  • Gordon: You've been in the sun too long. Your dome has cracked.
  • George Carlin: When the other engines heard the news, they laughed too.
  • James: Look out, Percy!
  • George Carlin: Chuckled James.
  • James: Or the dragon may gobble you up!
  • Percy: No-one believes me.
  • George Carlin: Huffed Percy.
  • Percy: Maybe I did imagine the dragon after all.
  • George Carlin: But Percy soon found out that he hadn't.
  • Percy: Help! Save me!
  • George Carlin: Cried Percy.
  • Thomas: It's alright.
  • George Carlin: Whistled Thomas. And, he explained about the carnival.
  • Thomas: By the way, how was your night out?
  • George Carlin: Percy decided to tell Thomas the truth.
  • Thomas: Well, Percy.
  • George Carlin: 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 Special Funnel)
  • George Carlin: It was winter on the Island of Sodor. Peter Sam puffed nervously along the line. His funnel had never been the same since his accident with some cars. Now the biting wind was trying to blow it away.
  • Peter Sam: My funnel feels wobbly.
  • George Carlin: He complained.
  • Peter Sam: I wish manager would hurry up with my new one. He says it would be something special.
  • Engines: You and your special funnel.
  • George Carlin: Laughed the other engines. The were fun to Peter Sam, but his special funnel had become quite a joke. The winter wind grew worse. The rain came too turning hillside streams into torrents which threatened to wash the line away. Rusty the Little Diesel worked hard carrying workmen up and down the line. They were removing branches and trees so water could flow away. But one morning, Rusty's driver brought bad news.
  • Rusty's Driver: There's been a washout near the tunnel. The track bed had been swept away. We must repait the damage inmediately.
  • George Carlin: The important work took longer than it expected. As days went by, the weather changed. It became frosty and much colder. The workmen finished at last. Peter Sam was most careful as he took the morning train over the mended piece of track. Soon, he approached the tunnel. It was short and curved so his driver could not see right through it. Peter Sam was heading for trouble.
  • Peter Sam's Driver: There's something hanging from the roof.
  • George Carlin: Shouted his driver. Peter Sam came out of the tunnel a different looking engine. He no longer had his funnel.
  • Conductor: Here's what hit you, Peter Sam.
  • George Carlin: Called the conductor and he produced a think cold icicle. They set off again. But without his funnel, the journey was very difficult. Then the fireman saw an old drain pipe lying beside the track.
  • Peter Sam's Fireman: We'll use that instead of your funnel. At least it'll help control the smoke.
  • George Carlin: Peter Sam finished his journey with the drain pipe wired to his boiler. The other engines laughed and Sir Handel sang a song about.
  • Sir Handel: (singing) Peter Sam said again and again, his new funnel will put ours to shame, went into a tunnel and lost his old funnel now his famous new funnel's a drain.
  • George Carlin: The teasing continue until at last the day came when his new funnel arrived. Sir Topham Hatt proudly presented it.
  • Peter Sam: Oh dear, someone squashed it.
  • George Carlin: Said Peter Sam. But Sir Topham Hatt laughed.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Don't worry, Peter Sam, this funnel is something special indeed. You'll soon see.
  • George Carlin: Peter Sam's new funnel had special pipes which made puffing much easier.
  • Peter Sam: I feel stronger than ever before.
  • George Carlin: He hummed. Even Sir Handel was impressed.
  • Sir Handel: I can't understand it. Peter Sam just seems to stroll along the line. He makes work look so easy.
  • George Carlin: The engines don't laugh at Peter Sam's funnel now. They wished they had one like it.
  • (Another nameplate sequence occurs and we begin Four Little Engines)
  • George Carlin: If you should visit the place that has a lake in the woods and a beautiful waterfall, then you may also find two little engines called Skarloey and Rheneas. The engines know everybody and everybody knows that. There are two more engines: Sir Handel and Peter Sam. They used to be called Stuart and Falcon, but they like they're new names better. One day, Sir Topham Hatt send Edward to the works to be mended. A big surprise awaited Edward.
  • Edward: It's Skarloey. What's he doing here?
  • George Carlin: Skarloey was pleased to see Edward.
  • Skarloey: I've been sent here for a rest.
  • George Carlin: He sighed.
  • Skarloey: I was put in the shed so I can see everything and not be lonely. But I do miss Rheneas. He's going to be mended. I wish I can be mended too, and pull coaches again.
  • George Carlin: Just then, some workmen arrived.
  • Workman: We're going to take you to the works now, Edward. Come along.
  • Edward: Goodbye, Skarloey. Your railway's a lovely line.
  • Skarloey: Oh, it is, it is! You cheered me up, Edward. Goodbye.
  • George Carlin: Meanwhile, Sir Handel was having trouble with some coaches. He tried to be kind, but the coaches didn't trust him. They were awkward and rude. There was worst to come. Some careless sheep stray on to the line.
  • Coaches: He's bumped us!
  • George Carlin: Screamed the coaches.
  • Coaches: Let's get back at him!
  • George Carlin: They serged into Sir Handel and pushed him off the rails. No one was hurt, but Sir Handel limped sadly to the shed.
  • Driver: No more work for you, today.
  • George Carlin: Said his driver.
  • Driver: How are we going to pull the visitors' train without an engine?
  • Skarloey: What about me, sir?
  • Driver: Skarloey, can you do it?
  • Skarloey: I'll try.
  • George Carlin: Said the old engine. The coaches stood at the platform.
  • Skarloey: I'm ashamed of you.
  • George Carlin: Scolded Skarloey.
  • Skarloey: You might have hurt your passengers.
  • George Carlin: The coaches quivered.
  • Coaches: We're sorry, Skarloey.
  • George Carlin: The conductor blew the whistle, and they're journey began. Skarloey remembered all the gates and styles where he had to stop. The sun shone and the rails were dry.
  • Skarloey: This is lovely.
  • George Carlin: Sanged Skarloey. Presently, the line grew steep. Skarloey felt short of steam.
  • Driver: Take your time.
  • George Carlin: Soothed his driver.
  • Skarloey: It'll be better down hill.
  • George Carlin: Skarloey said to himself. But it wasn't. His springs were weak, and the rail joints jarred his wheels. At last, a spring gave weigh.
  • Skarloey: I feel all crooked!
  • George Carlin: Cried Skarloey.
  • Driver: We'll need a bus now for our passengers.
  • George Carlin: Sighed his driver.
  • Skarloey: No!
  • George Carlin: Pleaded Skarloey.
  • Skarloey: I'll get them to the station or burst.
  • George Carlin: James was waiting on the platform. Clanging and clanking, Skarloey steamed in.
  • Skarloey: I'll do it, I'll do it. I've done it.
  • George Carlin: James collected his passengers and respectfully puffed away. Everyone was pleased with Skarloey, but he was still worried.
  • Skarloey: Old engines can't pull trains like the young ones can.
  • Driver: They can if they're mended, old faithful.
  • George Carlin: Smiled his driver.
  • Driver: And that's what gonna happen to you. You deserved it.
  • (Another nameplate sequence occurs and we begin Really Useful Engine)
  • Children: (singing) He's a really useful engine you know. All the other engines they'll tell you so. He huffs and puffs and whistles, rushing to and fro. He's a really useful engine we adore! He's the one, he's the one. He's a really useful engine that we adore. He's the one. He's the number one, Thomas the Tank Engine. He's a really useful engine you know. Cause the Fat Controller, he told him so. Now he's got a branch line to call his very own. He's a really useful engine we adore! He's the one, he's the one. He's a really useful engine that we adore. He's the one. He's the number one, Thomas the Tank Engine. Little blue train, he's always there whenever you need a hand. If you need help with a situation who comes into mind. He's the one, he's the one. He's a really useful engine that we adore. He's the one. He's the number one, Thomas the Tank Engine. He's a really useful engine you know. Maybe little, but he's never slow. Stand back in amazement, just you watch him go. He's a really useful engine we adore! He's the one, he's the one. He's a really useful engine that we adore. He's the one. He's the number one, Thomas the Tank Engine. He's the really useful engine we adore!
