Trivia

  • The 2002 UK release included a Motor Road and Rail Thomas.
  • The New Zealand release is one of two releases to feature both George Carlin and Michael Angelis narrating episodes, Bumper Video Collection Volume 5 being the other.
  • Due to the episodes being taken from the Endeavour Entertainment masters, the New Zealand release features the Nameboard sequences, and the end of Thomas' Christmas Party uses red coloured text, whilst the UK/Australian release uses yellow coloured text.
  • On the New Zealand release, starting with the intro to One Good Turn, the audio drastically increases in volume.

Goofs

  • On the front cover of the UK release, Thomas is mirrored.
  • On the back cover of the New Zealand release, only Ringo Starr and Michael Angelis are listed as the narrators, but George Carlin narrates the third season episodes.
  • On the back cover of the New Zealand release, Thomas and Percy's Mountain Adventure has the UK title, despite being the American dub.
  • On the New Zealand release. between the nameboard sequence at the end of The Flying Kipper, and the start of Thomas' Christmas Party, Thomas' nameboard is used twice.
  • On the New Zealand release, just as the ending credits of Pop Goes the Diesel come to a close, the footage and sound slows down for a second then reverts to the original pitch and tempo. Upon viewing, this can be assumed to be a playback error if one was to watch it, but has been proven to be an editing error.
  • On the New Zealand release, the first few seconds of several episodes are cut off.
