Script

  • (We open this pilot with the Britt Allcroft Presents logo)
  • (Then we see the Thomas Season 6 intro)
  • (After that, we begin the character introduction)
  • Alec Baldwin: Thomas: number one engine who works with Sir Topham Hatt. Percy: he is very happy and really reliable. James is a magnificent engine. Gordon is the most famous engine on the Island of Sodor. Here's Henry: the number three green engine. Edward: always here to help the other engines.
  • (A passing by sequence occurs and we begin Thomas Gets Tricked)
  • George Carlin: 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?
  • George Carlin: 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!
  • George Carlin: And off he 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!
  • George Carlin: He yawned. He fussed into the station where Gordon was waiting.
  • Gordon: Hurry up, you!
  • George Carlin: Said Gordon.
  • Thomas: Hurry up yourself.
  • George Carlin: 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!
  • George Carlin: 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!
  • George Carlin: 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!
  • George Carlin: Laughed Gordon.
  • Coaches: You can't get away, you can't get away!
  • George Carlin: 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.
  • George Carlin: He thought sadly.
  • Thomas: My wheels will be quite worn out.
  • (Gordon continues to speed ahead)
  • George Carlin: 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.
  • (Thomas is on the turntable as it turns around)
  • George Carlin: And then he ran on to a siding out of the way.
  • Gordon: Well, little Thomas.
  • George Carlin: Chuckled Gordon.
  • Gordon: Now you know what hard work means, don't you?
  • George Carlin: 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.
  • George Carlin: Thomas thought to himself. And he puffed slowly home.
  • (Another passing by sequence occurs and we begin Thomas' Anthem)
  • Children: (singing) It's Thomas the Tank Engine. Hip, hip, hip, hip, hooray! Chugga-chugga, chugg, chugg Chuff, chuff, chuff. He rides along the way. And when you hear that whistle, It can only be one train. Our favourite little engine, Thomas is his name! Thomas the Tank Engine rolling along, (whistling) All of his friends will be coming along.

  • (Whistle blowing)
  • (Another passing by sequence occurs and we begin Come Out Henry)
  • George Carlin: Once an engine attached to a train was afraid of a few drops of rain. It went into a tunnel and squeaked through its funnel, and wouldn't come out again. The engine's name is Henry. His driver and fireman argued with him, but he would not move.
  • Henry: The rain would spoil my lovely green paint and red stripes.
  • George Carlin: He said.
  • (The conductor's whistle blowing)
  • George Carlin: The conductor blew his whistle till he had no more breath, and waved his flag till his arms ached, but Henry still stayed in the tunnel and blew steam at him.
  • Henry: I'm not going to spoil my lovely green paint and red stripes for you.
  • George Carlin: Then, along came Sir Topham Hatt, the man of charge of all the engines on the Island of Sodor.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: We will pull you out.
  • George Carlin: Said Sir Topham Hatt. But Henry only blew steam at him. Everyone pulled except Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Because...
  • George Carlin: He said.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: ...my doctor has forbidden me to pull.
  • George Carlin: But still, Henry stayed in the tunnel. Then, they tried pushing from the other end. Sir Topham Hatt said...
  • Sir Topham Hatt: One, two, three, push!
  • George Carlin: ...but he didn't help.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: My doctor has forbidden me to push.
  • George Carlin: He said. They pushed, and pushed, and pushed, but still, Henry stayed in the tunnel. At last, Thomas came along. The guard waved his red flag and stopped him. Everyone argued with Henry.
  • Everyone: Look, it has stopped raining.
  • George Carlin: They said.
  • Henry: Yes, but it will began again soon.
  • George Carlin: Said Henry.
  • Henry: And what will become with green paint with red stripes then?
  • (Thomas arrives at that moment)
  • George Carlin: Thomas pushed and puffed and pushed as hard as ever he could.
  • (Thomas attempts to push)
  • George Carlin: But still Henry stayed in the tunnel.
  • (Thomas continues to push but fails)
  • George Carlin: Eventually, even Sir Topham Hatt gave up.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: We shall take away your rails...
  • George Carlin: He said.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: ...and leave you here until you're ready to come out of the tunnel.
  • George Carlin: They took up the old rails, and built a wall in front of Henry, so the other engines wouldn't bump into him.
  • (Everyone locks Henry in the tunnel with bricks)
  • George Carlin: All Henry could do was to watch the trains rushing through the other tunnel. He was very sad, because he thought no one would see his lovely green paint and red stripes again. As time went on, Edward and Gordon would often pass by. Edward would say...
  • Edward: Peep, peep! Hello!
  • George Carlin: And Gordon would say...
  • Gordon: Boop, boop, boop! Serves you right!
  • George Carlin: Poor Henry had no steam to answer. His fire had gone out. Soot and dirt from the tunnel had spoilt his lovely green paint with red stripes anyway. How long do you think Henry would stay in the tunnel before he overcomes his fear of the rain and decides to journey out again?
  • (Another passing by 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!
  • (Another passing by sequence occurs and we begin Thomas and Bertie's Great Race)
  • George Carlin: Thomas was waiting at the junction when the bus arrives.
  • Thomas: Hello.
  • George Carlin: Said Thomas.
  • Thomas: Who are you?
  • Bertie: I'm Bertie. Who are you?
  • Thomas: I'm Thomas. I run this branch line.
  • Bertie: So you're Thomas. Ah, I remembered now. You got stuck in the snow. I took your passengers and Terence the Tractor pulled you out. I've come to help you with your passengers today.
  • Thomas: Help me?
  • George Carlin: Said Thomas.
  • Thomas: I can go faster than you.
  • Bertie: You can't.
  • George Carlin: Said Bertie.
  • Thomas: I can.
  • George Carlin: Huffed Thomas.
  • Bertie: I'll race you!
  • George Carlin: Said Bertie. Their drivers agreed for the race going ahead. The stationmaster said...
  • Stationmaster: Are you ready? Go!
  • George Carlin: Thomas never could go fast at first and Bertie drew in front.
  • Annie and Clarabel: Why don't you go fast, why don't you go fast?
  • George Carlin: Called Annie and Clarabel.
  • Thomas: Wait and see, wait and see.
  • George Carlin: Hissed Thomas.
  • Annie and Clarabel: He's a long way ahead.
  • George Carlin: They wailed. But Thomas didn't mind. He remembered the level crossing. There was Bertie fuming at the gates while they sail gaily through.
  • Thomas: Goodbye, Bertie!
  • George Carlin: Called Thomas. After that the road left the railway so that they couldn't see Bertie. Then, they had to stop at the station to let off passengers.
  • Thomas: Peep peep! Quickly please!
  • George Carlin: Called Thomas and off they went again.
  • Thomas: Come along, come along.
  • George Carlin: Sang Thomas.
  • Annie and Clarabel: We're coming along, we're coming along.
  • George Carlin: Sang Annie and Clarabel.
  • Thomas: Hurry, hurry, hurry!
  • George Carlin: Panted Thomas, then he looked ahead. There was Bertie tooting triumphally on his horn.
  • Thomas: Oh dearie me, oh dearie me!
  • George Carlin: Groaned Thomas.
  • Thomas' Driver: Steady, Thomas.
  • George Carlin: Said his driver.
  • Thomas' Driver: We'll beat Bertie yet.
  • Annie and Clarabel: We'll be Bertie yet, we'll beat Bertie yet.
  • George Carlin: Echoed Annie and Clarabel.
  • Thomas: We'll do it, we'll do it.
  • George Carlin: Panted Thomas.
  • Thomas: Oh bother! There's the station.
  • George Carlin: Then he heard Bertie.
  • Bertie: Goodbye, Thomas. You must be tired. Sorry I can't stop. We buses have to work here you know. Goodbye.
  • Thomas: Oh dear.
  • George Carlin: Thought Thomas.
  • Thomas: We've lost.
  • George Carlin: But he felt better after a drink. The signal dropped.
  • Thomas: Hurrah, we're off! Hurrah, we're off!
  • George Carlin: Puffed Thomas. As they crossed the bridge, they heard an impatient...
  • Bertie: Honk honk!
  • George Carlin: There was Bertie waiting at the traffic lights. He started with a roar and chased on after Thomas once again. Now Thomas reached his full speed. Bertie tried hard but Thomas was too fast. Whistling triumphantly he plunged into the tunnel leaving Bertie toiling far behind.
  • Thomas: We've done it, we've done it!
  • George Carlin: Panted Thomas.
  • Annie and Clarabel: We've done it, hooray! We've done it, hooray!
  • George Carlin: Chanted Annie and Clarabel as they whooshed into the last station. Everyone was there to celebrate Thomas' victory. But they gave Bertie a big welcome too.
  • Bertie: Well done, Thomas.
  • George Carlin: Said Bertie.
  • Bertie: That was fun. But to beat you over that hill, I should have to grow wings and be an airplane.
  • George Carlin: They now kept each others very busy. They often talked about their race, but Bertie's passengers don't like being bounced like peas in the frying pan, and Sir Topham Hatt has warned Thomas not to race at dangerous speeds. So although, between you and me, they would like to have another race. I don't think they ever will, do you?
