Thomas and Gordon and Other Stories, also known as Volume 1 in New Zealand, is a UK/AUS/NZ VHS featuring eight first season episodes narrated by Ringo Starr. It was re-released in 1993 under the name Thomas and the Trucks and other stories in the UK. The original release was simply titled Thomas the Tank Engine and Friends.

Description

It's full steam ahead for Thomas, the little blue engine with the short stumpy funnel, short stumpy boiler, and short stumpy dome, and his special friends Gordon, Henry, James, Percy, Edward, Toby, Annie and Clarabel the carriages, and of course their Boss, the Fat Controller. Now Thomas has a new friend - storyteller Ringo Starr, who says "Thomas is a smashing little engine - he's cheeky and has a mind of his own. Thomas is Number One and never lets anyone forget it!"
