Happy Ever After is the nineteenth episode of the fifth season.


Mrs. Kyndley's daughter is getting married, but Mrs. Kyndley has forgotten the good luck package for her. Percy, wanting to help out, looks around and finds a new set of buffers and a flatbed, satisfying the first two criteria in "something new" and "something borrowed" for the package. He later finds Old Slow Coach, he and Thomas saved from being scrapped, and uses her for the "something old" object, and finally meets a ribbon-adorned Thomas as the "something blue" to complete the package. The delighted bride gives Percy a kiss, to Thomas' mirth.




  • Bulstrode makes a cameo, however, his face and eye mechanism have been removed.
  • Mrs. Kyndley has a different appearance than the one in Thomas' Christmas Party.
  • This episode marks Terence's last speaking role and Old Slow Coach's last appearance to date.
  • In a deleted scene, Percy is missing at the wedding.


  • Annie and Clarabel are seen in their new coats of paint, which they do not receive until the next episode.
  • Thomas, Old Slow Coach, and the new buffers all have a horseshoe on them, but the truck does not.
  • When Thomas and Percy are at the wedding in some side shots, a gap can be seen between Thomas' eyes and his face mask.
  • Percy's lamp disappears when he is at the docks.
  • In the scene of Mrs. Kyndley waving the flag, she is wearing a yellow shirt and a green skirt. In the closeup shot of her, she is wearing a brown coat.
  • When Percy puffs through Tidmouth Hault, his driver is not wearing his cap. Also, the back of his head and his body are missing.
