Thomas' Frosty Friend is the twentieth episode of the tenth season.


A snowman balloon becomes attached to Thomas' bunker, but Thomas thinks the snowman is following him and tells it to go away. Only when he tells Sir Topham Hatt about the snowman does he realise the balloon is attached to his buffers and decides to take it back to the children.




  • In Norway, this episode is named "Thomas and the Snowman". Its Danish title is "Thomas' Wintry Friend". In Germany, it is titled "Thomas and his Winter Friend". In Japan it is called "Snowman and Thomas". In Sweden this episode is called "The Snowman".
  • In a rare still, the Snowman doesn't have the chains attach it.
  • He didn't see that Wharf and Peace and Thomas' Frosty Friend are fail but he have been on Nick Jr. into Down the Mine, Thomas, Percy and the Coal, Cows and Bertie's Chase in 2011.


  • Thomas should have seen the chains on the balloon.
  • In real life, the wind can't blow or lift the snowman balloon away.
  • A brakevan should have been added to Thomas' train.
  • When the snowman is first seen being pulled out, the camera closes in on a hook holding it down being pulled out of the snow, and yet the ends of the rope do not have any hook whatsoever when it catches Thomas' buffers.
