- "It's Gordon's guard in disguise!"
Pantomime Pranks is a 1996 annual story.
It is the day before Christmas and the engines see unusual things throughout the day: a talking horse, a flaming black pudding, and even a guard in women's clothing. All is revealed that evening in the sheds, when the railway staff put on a special party and pantomime for the engines. Everyone has a lot of fun and looks forward to a happy Christmas.
