September 10th, 2007
Hide and Peep is the fifteenth episode of the eleventh season.
A ship is taking a while to reach Brendam and to pass the time Thomas and Percy play "Hide and Peep", with Percy hiding. Percy is a good hider and when Thomas tires of searching for him he pretends to have found him, but Percy knows he was cheating and hides on the coal tipper, until Thomas lies that the Fat Controller arrives and Percy comes out. But when the ship finally docks, Thomas cannot find Percy and when he calls out that the ship has docked, Percy refuses to come out. Thomas asks Cranky for help and Cranky spies Rocky lowering Percy behind a wall. Thomas finds the little green saddletank, and the two collect their loads on time.
