Thomas the Tank Engine is defenitely my favorite TV show EVER! I always love watching the trains going around, having strange adventures, and learning lessons. When I was young, I would always play out the episodes because they were so interesting and loveable. My favorite engines are Peter Sam (well, pretty much all of the narrow gauge engine), Toby (classic and sweet), and Spencer (nice color- looks cool). I collect the ERTL models, the Wooden Railway trains, and the Take Along Thomas trains. I play with them, too. When you watch Thomas, you can't help but love the episode and play along. And then, you'll come up with you're own. I loved the narration that George Carlin and Alec Baldwin did. Thomas the Tank Engine used to be a great show with meaningful storylines and true to life characters, but now, since HiT took over, it has become less interesting to older people as us. If you're not HiT, please stick with the Season 1-6 episodes. If youre are a HiT member, please let the original story writer write again. He did so much better. Ciao!
