Trivia

Goofs

  • On the UK VHS, James and the Trouble with Trees is mislabelled as "James and Trouble with Trees".
  • On the back cover of the Australian release, "A Bad Day for Sir Handel" is just called "Bad Day for Sir Handel", and the illustrations of Thomas and James are mirrored as their numbers are printed backwards.
