When Thomas pulls forward on his truck full of cocoa powder, he slows down before a burst of air shoots the powder up into the air.
Thomas: Everybody gets to take the children except me!
Thomas: Why are all the children cheering?
Percy: They're cheering for you. They've been waiting for the ice cream.
James: Out of the way! Passenger train coming through!
Appearances by Thomas, James, Percy and the Fat Controller.
This is the fourth episode in America to have "For Thomas" in the title. The first three were "A Big Day For Thomas", "Trouble For Thomas" and "A New Friend for Thomas".
Cameos by Toby with Henrietta and a Horrid Lorry (faceless).
James' quote in this story is similar to Gordon's - "Out of my way, Express train coming through!"
Thomas' accident is similar to Diesel's in "The World's Strongest Engine" in terms of the Trucks' brakes.
Sir Topham Hatt is seen in a bathing suit and a swim cap for the first time.
The crossing where Oliver got stuck in "Emily's New Coaches" makes a return.
The Cream Wagons and Raspberry Wagons also make their first appearances.
Mr. Jolly's Chocolate Factory returns for the first time since "Percy's Chocolate Crunch".
Cameo by Trevor.
Farmer McColl appears.
First appearance of the Ice Cream Factory as well as the manager of the factory.
New trucks are shown for the first time, they are similar to the original Troublesome Trucks and are used to carry foods. They are painted vibrant blue or vibrant red.
This episode takes place in the Summertime.
Percy's face, when he says "They're cheering for you!" is identical to the ERTL model of Percy.
Why does the ice cream factory use raspberry syrup but real strawberries? My wife came up with the answer - the syrup is used to make "raspberry ripple" ice cream (a British favourite consisting of vanilla ice cream with swirls of raspberry jam or sauce), while the strawberries are used to make real strawberry ice cream.
