Transcript

  • (We open this video with the Anchor Bay FBI Warning)
  • (We then see the 1999-2004 Anchor Bay Entertainment logo)
  • (The Britt Allcroft Presents logo soon follows)
  • (The Thomas Season 5 intro is shown and we begin A Better View For Gordon)
  • Alec Baldwin: Gordon was feeling grumpy. This was making James cross.
  • James: Why are you complaining all the time?
  • Gordon: Because I'm a big blue engine and I know everything. I shall complain whatever I like. You're just a small red engine with ideas above your station.
  • Percy: I can't see any.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Percy.
  • Percy: Where are they?
  • Gordon: Any what?
  • Percy: Ideas above the station. The sky's empty.
  • James: Like your smokebox, Percy.
  • Alec Baldwin: Laughed James, but Gordon was still grumpy.
  • Gordon: One day I'll show you just a big engine can really do.
  • Percy: So what can a big engine really do?
  • Gordon: Not speak to silly little green engines for a start.
  • Alec Baldwin: Replied Gordon, then he puffed away. Later that day, Sir Topham Hatt came to see him.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Gordon, you'll be making one stop today with an empty express to test our new station. You can make up time afterwards.
  • Gordon: Why can't Henry do it? He likes idling at stations.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: You will do as you are told.
  • Alec Baldwin: So Gordon did. But he was still unhappy and he grew sick too.
  • Gordon: I just can't get up to speed.
  • Alec Baldwin: He groaned.
  • Gordon's Fireman: It's time for your visit to the works. Your pipes are clogged.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said the fireman. At last, they approached the new station. Gordon was impressed but his mood soon changed. In front of him was a blank wall and huge buffers.
  • Gordon: What a boring view! Important engines like me should have a paramonic view where I can see people and people could see me.
  • Alec Baldwin: And he wheeshed angrily. Gordon was happy when it was time to leave.
  • Gordon's Driver: Now you can really enjoy your run as long as your pipes will let you.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said his driver.
  • Gordon: Come on, come on! I can go faster that this!
  • Alec Baldwin: Huffed Gordon.
  • Gordon: Sick? Me? Never!
  • Alec Baldwin: But Gordon began to feel more and more feeble, and soon, he came to a complete stop.
  • Gordon: What happened?
  • Alec Baldwin: His driver and fireman inspected him.
  • Gordon's Fireman: Something's broken inside you, Gordon.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said his fireman.
  • Gordon's Fireman: Now you're really will have to go to the works.
  • Alec Baldwin: Gordon was still fuming when James arrived to collect his coaches.
  • James: Well, well, well! So much about anything. You got too puffed up in your boiler so it's serves you right.
  • Alec Baldwin: When Gordon returned to the works a few days later, he was still boasting.
  • Gordon: I am the finest engine on the Island of Sodor, properly the finest in the world.
  • Gordon's Driver: Come on, Gordon. We're going to the official opening at the new station.
  • Alec Baldwin: Then, there was trouble. As Gordon approached the new station, neither the driver nor fireman could apply his brakes. Something had jammed. The driver reduced steam, but Gordon was still going too fast.
  • (Gordon crashed into the wall)
  • Gordon: Help me, please!
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Well, Gordon.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: I knew you wanted a panoramic view, but this is not a way to achieve it.
  • Gordon: Yes, Sir, sorry, Sir.
  • Alec Baldwin: When Gordon was repaired again, he took Sir Topham Hatt to the new station, for a second official opening. This time he arrived safely, and everyone clapped and cheered as he pulled in. Sir Topham Hatt spoke to him.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Your panoramic view is here to stay. I trusted you are always see through it, from the safety of your own rails.
  • Alec Baldwin: Gordon hardly agreed.
  • (A nameplate sequence occurs and we begin Woolly Bear)
  • George Carlin: 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 station.
  • (Percy's whistle toots)
  • George Carlin: Toby then takes them to the hills for the farmers to feed their stock.
  • (Toby's bell rings)
  • Percy: Wheeeeeeeesh!
  • George Carlin: Percy gave a ghostly whistle.
  • Percy: Don't be frightened, Thomas.
  • George Carlin: He laughed.
  • Percy: It's only me!
  • Thomas: Your ugly fizz is enough to frighten anyone.
  • George Carlin: Said Thomas.
  • Thomas: You're like...
  • Percy: Ugly indeed. I'm...
  • Thomas: Green caterpillar with red stripes.
  • George Carlin: 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.
  • George Carlin: 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 till all hours.
  • Percy: Green caterpillar indeed.
  • George Carlin: Fumed Percy, as he set off to collect some hay to take to the harbour.
  • Percy: Everyone says I'm handsome, or at least nearly anyone. Anyway, my curves are better than Thomas' corners. Thomas says I'm always late.
  • George Carlin: 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 farther on.
  • George Carlin: All the same, he and his driver decided to start home early. Then came trouble.
  • (The crate of treacle appears held by a crane it falls down and lands on Percy with a loud Wham!)
  • George Carlin: A crate of treacle was upset all over Percy. Percy was cross. He was still sticky when he puffed away. The wind was blowing fiercely.
  • Percy's Driver: Look at that!
  • George Carlin: Explained the driver. The wind caught the piled hay, tossing it up and over the track. The line climbed here.
  • Percy's Driver: Take a run at it, Percy.
  • George Carlin: 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 cleared before he could start again. Everyone was waiting. Thomas seethed impatiently.
  • Thomas: Ten minutes late. I warned him. Passengers will complain and Sir Topham Hatt.
  • George Carlin: Then they all saw Percy. They laughed and shouted.
  • (Passengers laughing)
  • Percy: Sorry I'm late.
  • George Carlin: Percy panted.
  • Thomas: Look what's crawled out of the hay!
  • George Carlin: Teased Thomas.
  • Percy: What's wrong?
  • George Carlin: Asked Percy.
  • Thomas: Talk about hairy caterpillars.
  • George Carlin: Puffed Thomas.
  • Thomas: It's worth been late to have seen you.
  • George Carlin: When Percy got home, his driver showed him what he looked like in the mirror.
  • (Percy gets shocked in the mirror)
  • Percy: Bust my buffers! No wonder they all laughed. I'm just look like a woolly bear. Please clean me before Toby comes.
  • George Carlin: But it was no good. Thomas told Toby all about it.
  • (Workmen are seen clearing the hay out of Percy)
  • George Carlin: Instead of talking about sensible things like playing ghosts, Thomas and Toby made jokes about woolly bear caterpillars, and other creatures which crawled about in hay. They laughed a lot, but Percy thought they were really being very silly indeed!
  • (Another nameplate sequence occurs and we begin Double Trouble)
  • George Carlin: It was a beautiful morning on the Island of Sodor. Thomas the Tank Engine's blue paint sparkled in a sunshine as he puffed happily along his branch line with Annie and Clarabel. He was feeling very pleased with himself.
  • Percy: Hello, Thomas
  • George Carlin: Whistled Percy.
  • Percy: You look splendid.
  • Thomas: Yes indeed.
  • George Carlin: Boasted Thomas.
  • Thomas: Blue is the only proper color for an engine.
  • Toby: Oh, i don't know. I like my brown paint.
  • George Carlin: Said Toby.
  • Percy: I've always been green. I wouldn't want to be any other color either.
  • George Carlin: Added Percy.
  • Thomas: Well, well, anyway.
  • George Carlin: Huffed Thomas.
  • Thomas: Blue is the only color for a really useful engine. Anyone knows that.
  • George Carlin: Percy said no more. He just grinned at Toby. Later, Thomas was resting when Percy arrived. A large hopper was loading his freight cars full of coal. Thomas was still being cheeky.
  • Thomas: Careful.
  • George Carlin: He warned.
  • Thomas: Watch out with those silly cars.
  • Cars: Go on, go on!
  • George Carlin: Muttered the cars.
  • Thomas: And by the way.
  • George Carlin: Went on Thomas.
  • Thomas: Those buffers don't look really safe to me.
  • George Carlin: The last load poured down.
  • Thomas: Help, help!
  • George Carlin: Cried Thomas.
  • Thomas: Get me out!
  • George Carlin: Percy was worried, but he couldn't help laughing. Thomas' smart blue paint was covered in coal dust from smokebox to bunker.
  • Percy: Ha, ha!
  • George Carlin: Chuckled Percy.
  • Percy: You don't look really useful now, Thomas. You look really disgraceful.
  • Thomas: I'm not disgraceful.
  • George Carlin: Choked Thomas.
  • Thomas: You did that on purpose. Get me out!
  • George Carlin: It took so long to clean Thomas that he wasn't it time for his next train. Toby had to take Annie and Clarabel.
  • Annie: Poor Thomas.
  • George Carlin: Whispered Annie to Clarabel. They were most upset. Thomas was grumpy in the shed that night. Toby thought it made a great joke, but Percy was cross with Thomas for thinking he had made his paint dirty on purpose.
  • Percy: Fancy a really useful blue engine like Thomas becoming a disgrace to Sir Topham Hatt's railway.
  • George Carlin: Next day, Thomas was feeling more cheerful, as he watch Percy bring his cars from the junction. The cars were heavy and Percy was tired.
  • Driver: Have a drink.
  • George Carlin: Said his driver.
  • Driver: Then you'll feel better.
  • George Carlin: The water column stood at the end of the siding with the unsafe buffers. Suddenly, Percy found that he couldn't stop. The buffers didn't stop him either.
  • Percy: Ooh!
  • George Carlin: Wailed Percy.
  • Percy: Help!
  • George Carlin: The buffers were broken and Percy was wheel deep in coal. It was time for Thomas to leave. He had seen everything.
  • Thomas: Now Percy has learned his lesson too.
  • George Carlin: He chuckled to himself. That night, the two engines made up their quarrel.
  • Percy: I didn't cause your accident on purpose, Thomas.
  • George Carlin: Whispered Percy.
  • Percy: You do know that, don't you?
  • Thomas: Of course.
  • George Carlin: Replied Thomas.
  • Thomas: And I'm sorry I teased you. Your green paint look splendid again too. In future, we're both be more careful of coal.
  • (Another nameplate sequence occurs and we begin The Flying Kipper)
  • George Carlin: One winter evening, Henry's driver said...
  • Henry's Driver: We'll be out early tomorrow. We've got to take the Flying Kipper. Don't tell Gordon, but I think if we pull the Kipper nicely, Sir Topham Hatt will let us pull the express. The special coal they gave you is working well.
  • Henry: Hooray!
  • George Carlin: Cried Henry.
  • Henry: That will be lovely.
  • George Carlin: All kinds of ships use the harbour at the big station by the sea. There are passenger ships, cargo ships and fishing boats also come here. They unload their fish on the key. Some of them goes the shops in the town, and the rest in a special train to other places far away. This is the train the railwaymen called the Flying Kipper. Henry was ready at 5:00. There was snow and frost. Men hustled and shouted loading up the crates of fish. The last door banged, the guard showed his green lamp, and the Flying Kipper was ready to go.
  • Henry: Come on, come on, don't be silly, don't be silly.
  • George Carlin: Puffed Henry to the freight cars. The cars shuttered and groaned.
  • Cars: Trickety-trock, trickety-trock, all right, all right!
  • Henry: That's better, that's better.
  • George Carlin: Puffed Henry. Cloud of smoke and steam poured from his funnel into the cold air, and the fire's light shown brightly.
  • Henry: Hurry, hurry, hurry!
  • George Carlin: Panted Henry. They were going well. The light grew better, signal light shown green as they passed. Then, a yellow signal appeard ahead. His driver prepared to stop, but the home signal was down.
  • Henry's Driver: All clear, Henry. Away we go.
  • George Carlin: They couldn't know the switches from the main line to a siding were frozen, and a home signal should have been set a danger, but snow had forced it down. A freight train was waited in a siding to let the Flying Kipper past, and a Driver and Fireman were drinking cocoa in the caboose.
  • Conductor: The Kipper is due.
  • George Carlin: Said the conductor.
  • Fireman: Who cares?
  • George Carlin: Said the Fireman.
  • Fireman: This is good cocoa.
  • George Carlin: The driver got up.
  • Driver: Come on, fireman, back to our engine.
  • George Carlin: They got out just in time.
  • (Henry crashes into the break van and comes off the rails completely)
  • George Carlin: Henry's driver and fireman had jumped clear before the crash, but Henry lay dazed and surprised. Sir Topham Hatt came to see him.
  • Henry: The signal was down, Sir.
  • George Carlin: Said Henry.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Cheer up, Henry. It wasn't your fault. Ice and snow cause the accident. I'm sending you to Crewe, a fine place for sick engines. They'll give you your new shape and a larger firebox. You'll feel a different engine, and you won't need special coal anymore. Won't that be nice?
  • Henry: Yes, sir.
  • George Carlin: Said Henry doubtfully. Henry liked being a Crewe, but was glad to come home. A crowd of people waited to see him arrive in his new shape. He looked so splendid and strong that they gave him three cheers.
  • Henry: Peep, peep!
  • George Carlin: He whistled.
  • Henry: Thank you very much!
  • George Carlin: I'm sorry to say that a lot of little children were often late for school, because they waited to see Henry go by. They often see him pulling the express. He does it so well that Gordon is jealous. But that's another story.
  • (Another nameplate sequence occurs and we begin Bulgy)
  • George Carlin: It was a special holiday on the Island of Sodor. Bertie the Bus was working harder than ever before. All the engines were busy too. Duck was waiting for his next journey. Near him stood a red bus. But he didn't look friendly like Bertie. The bus growled as he gazed at the happy passengers.
  • Bulgy: Stupid nonsense.
  • George Carlin: He grumbled.
  • Bulgy: I wouldn't have brought them if I've known. I did have a breakdown or something.
  • Duck: I'm glad you didn't.
  • George Carlin: Smiled Duck.
  • Duck: You had spoiled their fun.
  • Bulgy: Bah! Enjoyment is all you engines lived for. One day railways will be ripped up.
  • George Carlin: Duck felt shocked at such an idea.
  • Duck: We have a friend called Bertie and he's a bus. But he likes the railway. Sometimes he teases us about it, but he'd never want to see it ripped up.
  • Bulgy: Heh!
  • George Carlin: Growled the bus.
  • Bulgy: I know Bertie. He's too small in size to be in any use.
  • George Carlin: Duck took no notice.
  • Duck: That bus is silly.
  • George Carlin: He thought as he steamed away. At the junction, Duck told Oliver all about him.
  • Oliver: I call him Bulgy.
  • George Carlin: Chuckled Oliver and then he puffed happily away. But that afternoon when the two engines met again, Oliver was no longer laughing.
  • Oliver: Bulgy's friend had come.
  • George Carlin: He said.
  • Oliver: He's rude too. He's taking Bulgy's passengers home and leaving Bulgy free to steal ours.
  • Duck: But he can't.
  • George Carlin: Objected Duck.
  • Oliver: Bulgy says he can get them to the big station before us.
  • Duck: Rubbish!
  • George Carlin: Replied Duck.
  • Duck: It's much farther by road.
  • Oliver: Yeah.
  • George Carlin: Continued Oliver.
  • Oliver: But Bulgy says he knows a shortcut.
  • George Carlin: That evening, the engines were preparing for the homeward rush.
  • Duck: Where are the passengers?
  • George Carlin: They wondered.
  • Oliver: Look!
  • George Carlin: Shrilled Oliver.
  • Oliver: Look at Bulgy. He's a mean scarlet deciever.
  • George Carlin: Bulgy was wearing a large sign saying: Railway Bus.
  • Bulgy: Yaa boo snubs.
  • George Carlin: He jeered as he roared away.
  • Duck: Come on.
  • George Carlin: Puffed Duck to his coaches.
  • Duck: Let's see what he's up to.
  • George Carlin: Duck wanted to get back at Bulgy, but he wasn't sure how. Then in the distance, Duck saw a man waving a red flag. That meant danger. The line here crosses a narrow road and there was Bulgy wedged firmly under the bridge.
  • Duck: So this was his shortcut.
  • George Carlin: Chuckled Duck.
  • Bulgy's Passengers: He tricked us.
  • George Carlin: Shouted Bulgy's passengers.
  • Bulgy's Passengers: He said he was a railway bus, but he wouldn't accept our return tickets. He wanted us to think railways are no good.
  • George Carlin: Duck's crew examined the bridge.
  • Duck's Crew: It's risky, but we must help the passengers.
  • Duck: Passengers are urgent.
  • George Carlin: Agreed Duck. Duck slowly and carefully set off across the bridge. Bulgy wailed as he felt the bridge quiver.
  • Bulgy: (groaning) Stop!
  • George Carlin: He shouted.
  • Bulgy: It might fall on me.
  • Duck: That would serve you right for telling lies.
  • George Carlin: Said Duck. But the bridge didn't collapse. Duck made good time and all the passengers caught their trains. The bridge is now mended, but not unfortunately Bulgy and his ways. He never learned sense. He's a henhouse and his lies can do no harm. The hens never listened to him anyway.
  • (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 Every Cloud Has A Silver Lining)
  • (James' whistle toots)
  • Children: (singing) Life is full of surprises, full of ups and downs And so to have a silver lining, first there must be cloud. Bill and Ben the twins work together all day long.
