A Big Day for Thomas is a US VHS/DVD featuring seven first season episodes narrated by George Carlin and two songs. Lionsgate released the title for digital download in 2013.


1998 VHS:

PEEP! PEEP! Thomas, Sir Topham Hatt, Henry and their friends have learned many lessons about being careful. They have selected their favorite stories to create this "best of" collection -- all about the importance of paying attention.

Come along as Thomas gets to pull his very own train -- with unexpected results! Watch what happens when Percy is careless and gets a nasty shock, and when snow jams a signal down and Henry runs into a disaster. Hop on board for these heartwarming tales from the Island of Sodor.

2003 VHS/2007 DVD:

PEEP! PEEP! Who's that pulling into the station? It's Thomas the Tank Engine, and he's ready to take you on another journey filled with exciting adventures on the Island of Sodor. Travel with Thomas when he gets to pull his very own train for the first time - - with unexpected results. Find out what really "shocks" Percy and hold your breath when some snow jams one of the Island's signals and leads Henry to disaster.

It's your Big Day, so get ready to join Thomas, James, Toby and the rest of your friends for non-stop fun. All Aboard!
