The fourth season of Thomas the Tank Engine & Friends would have aired between 1994-1996 on citv (instead of Cartoon Network UK) for the UK and on PBS for the US between 1995-1996 with re-airing on the Fox Family channel in 1998. Michael Angelis narrated all UK episodes and George Carlin narrated all US episodes. Starting with the fourth season, two episodes are counted as one due to only being 4:30 minutes long.

Episode Changes

  • Special Funnel - Sir Handel and Duncan would replace Skarloey and Rheneas at the end when Peter Sam passes Rheneas Sheds.
  • Thomas and Stepney - The episode would mostly remain the same but with Stepney's introduction remaining RWS accurate. Rusty along with the reference to Rusty to the Rescue would be omitted with the scene being repaced with a reference of the scrapyards mentioned by Percy and Douglas from Bluebells of England.
  • Oliver Gets the Bird - Based on the annual story; the TV series adaption would follow shunterproductions's adaption of the story; Donald, Douglas, Toad, Alice, Mirabel, Isabel and Dulcie would also appear.
  • Edward and the River Rose - Based on the magazine story; BoCo, Bear, Bill, Ben and Trevor would also make appearances in the TV Series adaption.
