Movies/TV Anyone remember Thomas the Tank Engine&Friends?


Recommended Posts

If you remember this...you had one hell of a child hood!  I remember watching it with my mom at the young age of i think 3-4 i'm not sure, people who love trains now where probably influenced by this show when it wan't CGI.  So, if I may ask, do you remember this show before it changed?  If so, what were your favorite moments and characters from the series?

I do remember watching a couple and I always thought it was really creepy that trains had faces on them. Plus never really did like that much when I was little but I do remember it.

YES, ALL OF MY YES

 

This show was my childhood back in the day. I used to be obsessed with it. I'd watch the show, buy the magazines and the merch whenever I could. Goddamn, I loved Thomas when I was a boy. Of course, that was before it became CGI, terribad and cringey.

 

Good memories anyway.

I'm still trying to wrap my mind around why George Carlin was in freaking Thomas.

I like Carlin and all (even if I didn't agree with everything he said) but sheesh.  It felt weird rewatching my old Thomas VHS tapes with my niece and thinking "Yeah now that I'm older...  Is Carlin gonna start making jokes about the trains carrying coke and prostitutes?"

YES. I loved Thomas the Tank Engine when I was a little kid. 

 

Sadly this is all I can think of when I see it though.

 

 

I laughed for about 5 minutes just from that. Dunno why.

Yes, I sure do.

 

It had to be the most "OMG I WANT THIS LANDSCAPE!!11!one!!11" show I've ever seen on TV.

Oh yeah this was my childhood. I remember it quite fondly and that my favorite engines were Smudger. Oliver, Rheneas, and Henry

 

Also "The Flying Kipper" was my favorite episode

Yes, it was my favorite show when I was younger and I've still kept up with it after all these years. I have an entire chest of TOMY/Trackmaster toys in my home. My favorite character was Percy.

Yup, I couldn't make it through a whole episode, because it was kindof boring. 

 

Plus I always thought that Percy was a girl.

Yes. My older brother and my cousins watched it, but I have something sort of related to this series that I'd like to talk about. 

 

Britt Allcroft, who worked on Thomas and Friends, worked on an animated series in the 90's, The Magic Adventures of Mumfie. My sister (Alicorn Fan on this site) got me into this just recently because she was looking for a Cinderella VHS opening on superfunforeveryone's channel after it was mentioned in a video. The user was suspended by Lionsgate for posting VHS tapes with Fraggle Rock openings on them. In the related videos section of another version of the VHS opening was a Cabbage Patch Kids VHS opening with a Mumfie preview on it. She also recalls that we watched some Mumfie VHS tapes in kindergarten. We were born in the late 1990's, by the way. It wasn't until my sister played a Mumfie song in a commentary video she did on YouTube that I got addicted into the series. This show was about a young elephant who has many friends, like a scarecrow and a flying pig.

 

Today, we watched the Christmas special and the bonus episodes on it. (My sister has a digital copy of this special, and I am getting the DVD of that special as well as a Mumfie plush for Christmas.) In one bonus episode, Bristle's Holiday, which was about Bristle trying to have fun, this happened:

Bristle, the tiny man is playing paddle ball, hula hooping, and throwing a ball at the same time. Have you even seen someone do this before? Me neither!

Wow! I couldn't even do that.

Yes. I remember Thomas. We even watched some episodes of this in first grade, and I've seen the Magic Railroad movie. And this remix of the theme song goes well with the song they picked, too. So well that it's hilarious!

Speaking of Thomas, does anyone remember the show that introduced this show to America, Shining Time Station? My brother watched it when it was on Fox Family back in the day. If you haven't seen it yet, click here to watch the Christmas episode.
