“I wish the wishing tree would last forever and ever!”

Henry Gets it Wrong is the fifth episode of the twelfth season.


One summer morning, Sir Topham Hatt came to the sheds with bad news that a summer storm hit and that the wishing tree was struck by lightning. Sir Topham Hatt tells Henry to collect some tree specialists from the docks and take them to the forest so they can fix the tree before their boat leaves for the Mainland.

Henry arrived at the forest on his way to the docks and was shocked to see the wishing tree had fallen. When Edward tells Henry that sometimes trees cannot be saved and Henry was more worried than ever that the tree might get cut down. When he was heading to the docks, Toby had broken down on his track blocking the line. This gives Henry an idea to block the tracks to the wishing tree so no one would cut it and he took Toby's trucks for him. He also collected Thomas, Percy and Emily's trucks which both engines agreed and Henry went to the forest. He shunted the trucks and the line was blocked.

At the docks, Salty was asked to take the tree specialists to the forest, but he could not get through the trucks blocking the tracks. Harold flew from above Henry and told him that the tree specialist are trying to save the tree and without them, the tree will get cut down. Henry realizes his mistake and took Toby's trucks to the depot, Thomas' empty trucks to the quarry, Emily's trucks to the coaling plant and Percy's trucks of empty milk churns to Farmer McColl's Farm. Henry collected the tree specialists and took them to the wishing tree. They cleared and cut the fallen branches and Henry helped by pulling the tree back up. Henry wished the wishing tree would last forever and ever and smiled.
