Thomas, Percy & The Dragon (Michael Brandon)

  • Michael Brandon: Thomas and Percy are good friends, but sometimes Percy teases Thomas about being frightened and he dosen't like that at all. One eveing 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.
  • Michael Brandon: Percy went on teasing him.
  • Percy: I hope the guard leaves the light on for you tonight.
  • Thomas: Why? I quite like the dark.
  • Percy: Oh really? I am surprised. I'd always thought you were afraid of the dark. I wonder why?
  • Michael Brandon: Thomas decided to say nothing and went to sleep instead. The next day, Sir Topham Hatt arrived.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: I would like you to go to the harbour tonight and collect something special, Thomas.
  • Thomas: What sort of something?
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Wait and see.
  • Michael Brandon: Said Sir Topham Hatt. Meanwhile, Percy was moving some trucks into a siding. Henry arrived with his goods train. The signalman switched the points and Percy waited on the siding until Henry had steamed by. Then, there was trouble.
  • The Signalman: The points are jammed.
  • Michael Brandon: Called the signalman.
  • The Signalman: I can't switch them back for Percy. The workmen will mend them tomorrow morning. It's too late now.
  • Percy's Driver: Hmmm.
  • Michael Brandon: Said Percy's Driver.
  • Percy's Driver: I'm sorry, Percy. But you will have to stay here tonight.
  • Percy: Where are you going?
  • Michael Brandon: Asked Percy.
  • Percy's Fireman: Home for tea.
  • Michael Brandon: 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. It's very dark.
  • Michael Brandon: Murmured Percy.
  • (Owl hoots)
  • Percy: OH! OH! What's that?!
  • Michael Brandon: It was only an owl, but Percy didn't realise this.
  • Percy: I wish Thomas was here too.
  • Michael Brandon: He sighed. Thomas was waiting for his mysterious load at the harbour. Suddenly, there is was.
  • (The Chinese Dragon appears)
  • Thomas: Cinders & Ashes! It's a dragon!
  • Michael Brandon: He cried.
  • Thomas's Driver: Don't worry Thomas. This dragon is made of paper. It's for the carnival tomorrow.
  • Michael Brandon: Workmen likfted 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 and he screams) Percy woke up very surprised.
  • Percy: Help!
  • Michael Brandon: Cried Percy.
  • Percy: I'm not going to open my eyes until my driver comes.
  • Michael Brandon: 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.
  • Michael Brandon: 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.
  • Michael Brandon: Gordon snorted.
  • Gordon: You've been in the sun too long. Your dome has cracked.
  • Michael Brandon: When the other engines heard the news, they laughed too.
  • James: Look out, Percy!
  • Michael Brandon: Chuckled James.
  • James: Or the dragon may gobble you up!
  • Percy: No-one believes me.
  • Michael Brandon: Huffed Percy.
  • Percy: Maybe I did imagine the dragon after all.
  • Micahael Brandon: But Percy soon found out that he hadn't.
  • Percy: Aaaaaaaaaah! Help! Save me!
  • Thomas: It's alright Percy.
  • Michael Brandon: said Thomas. And, he explained about the carnival.
  • Thomas: By the way, how was your night out?
  • Michael Brandon: Percy decided to tell Thomas the truth.
  • Thomas: Well, Percy. Maybe we do get scared somethimes, but if we're not afraid to tell each other, then that means we're quite brave too.

Donald & Douglas (Ringo Starr)

  • Ringo Starr: Donald & Douglas are twins and have arrived from Scotland to help Sir Topham Hatt. But only one engine had been expected. The twins ment well, but did cause confusion. Sir Topham Hatt gave them numbers. Donald 9 and Douglas 10. But he was still planning to send one engine home. (Thomas' whistle blows) There was a breakvan in the yard that had taken a dislike to Douglas. Things always went wrong when he had to take it out. His trains were late and he was blamed. Douglas began to worry. Donald, his twin, was angry.
  • Donald: Ye're a muckle nuisance!
  • Ringo Starr: Said Donald.
  • Donald: It's ta leave ye behind, I'd be wantin'.
  • The Spiteful Breakvan: You can't.
  • Ringo Starr: Said the van.
  • The Spiteful Breakvan: I'm essential.
  • Donald: Och are ye?
  • Ringo Starr: Donald burst out
  • Donald: Ye're naethin' but a screechin' an' a noise when a's said an' done. Spite Douggie wad ye? Tak that!
  • The Spiteful Breakvan: Oh! Oh! Oh!
  • Ringo Starr: Cried the van.
  • Donald: There's mair comin', syne ye misbehave!
  • Ringo Starr: The van behaved better after that. Until one day, Donald had an accident. The rails were slippery. He couldn't stop in time. (Donald crashes into the signalbox) Sir Topham Hatt was most annoyed.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: I am dissappointed Donald. I didn't expect such-um-clumsiness from you. I had dicided to send Douglas back and keep you.
  • Donald: I'm sorry, sir.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Donald.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: I should think so too. You have upset my arrangements. Now James will have to help with the goods work while you have your tender mended. James won't like that.
  • Ringo Starr: Sir Topham Hatt was right. James grumbled dreadfully.
  • Douglas: Anyone would think.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Douglas.
  • Douglas: That Donald had his accident on purpose. I heard tell about an engine and some tar wagons.
  • James: Shut up!
  • Ringo Starr: Said James.
  • James: It's not funny.
  • Ringo Starr: He didn't like to be reminded of his own accident.
  • Douglas: Well, well, well.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Douglas.
  • Douglas: Surely James, it wasn't you? You didn't say.
  • Ringo Starr: James didn't say. He slouched sulkily away.
  • The Spiteful Breakvan: He's cross.
  • Ringo Starr: Snickered the spiteful breakvan.
  • The Spiteful Breakvan: We'll try to make him crosser still.
  • Freight Cars: Hold back!
  • Ringo Starr: Giggled the cars to each other. James did his best, but he was exhausted when they reached Edward's station. Luckily Douglas was there.
  • James: Help me up the hill, please.
  • Ringo Starr: Panted James.
  • James: These cars are playing tricks.
  • Douglas: We'll show them.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Douglas. Slowly but surely, the snorting engines forced the cars up the hill. But James was losing steam.
  • James: I can't do it. I can't do it.
  • Douglas: Leave it to me!
  • Ringo Starr: Shouted Douglas. The conductor was anxious.
  • Conductor: Go steady. The van's breaking. (The spiteful breakvan breaks to pieces) The van was in pieces. No one had been hurt, and soon Edward came to clear the mess. Sir Topham Hatt was on board.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: I might have known it would be Douglas.
  • Ringo Starr: He said.
  • Edward: Douglas was grand, sir.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Edward.
  • Edward: James had no steam left, but Douglas worked hard enough for three. I heard him from my yard.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Two would have been enough.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: I want to be fair Douglas. But, I don't know. I really don't know.
  • Ringo Starr: Sir Topham Hatt was making up his mind about something, but that's another story.

My Comments

  • BiggestRingoStarrandBrittAllcroftFan: Good job making this version!
  • ThomasDuckGordonandSpamcanFan: I would like to see Michael Brandon renarrating Season 3-6 starting with late 2003 and Ringo Starr narrating Whistles & Sneezes, Bertie's Chase, Percy & The Signal, Donald & Douglas, The Deputation, Daisy, Percy's Predicament, The Diseasel, Wrong Road and Edward's Exploit in 1990.
  • Pikachufreak: Where is the text taken from on this video?
  • Pikachufreak: In the Season 5 intro, does it use the text taken from the "Thomas & The Jet Engine" 2004 VHS?
    • EdwardandEmilyFan: NO!! The title card is the same one as the George Carlin Version!
  • DuckPeterSamJamesandPercyFan: I would be making a Ringo Starr Version of A Big Day For Thomas & Other Stories that is distrubuted by Strand Home Video, will have the UK Season 4 intro (version 2), nameplate sequence (1992-1994) and the UK Season 4 outro and released on the same day as the George Carlin version.
