“It's the One-Eyed Truck!”

Percy's Scary Tale is a Jack and the Sodor Construction Company episode, released on the US DVD, On Site with Thomas and Other Adventures.


Percy has been sent to work with Alfie on Halloween night. During a break, Kelly decides to tell everyone a scary story about a one-eyed truck. Percy and Alfie hope that the story is not too scary. Max and Monty then complain that "it's just a story." Jack finds this insulting, so he hushes them. With that, Kelly begins to tell the story. Later, after teasing everyone about the story, Max and Monty are sent to dump some dirt. After seeing some things on their way, they see a light and, thinking it is the one-eyed truck, run away in fright, but soon feel silly when they realise it was Thomas.




  • A wide screen version of this episode had only been shown on Virgin Media on Demand UK until the episode was released in Thomas' Trusty Friends for digital download on May 8th, 2017.
  • The working title for this episode was going to be "Scaredy, Scaredy," although that title is listed on Virgin TV Anytime's website.
  • For unknown reasons, this episode was only released in the UK on a promotional DVD along with Jack Owns Up. It was released on Thomas' Trusty Friends exclusively for digital download on May 8th, 2017 in the UK.
  • This is the only Jack and the Sodor Construction Company episode not to feature Miss Jenny.


  • When Jack says "Shh!" his face moves.
  • The title was incredibly misleading due to the fact that Kelly was the storyteller of the One Eyed Truck story.
  • In the British narration, when Thomas puffs beside Percy, the American term "freight cars" is used.
  • Alfie is said to have chuffed, but he is an excavator.
  • The steps beneath Percy's cab are red and his dome is green when his steps should be green and his dome should be brass-coloured.
