Trivia

  • The VHS release won the 1999 Parent's Guide to Children's Media Inc. award.
  • The end credits on this release are from Thomas Gets Bumped and Other Stories.
  • Some 2000 releases have each episode beginning with an intro and ending with an outro similar to UK releases.

Goofs

  • The front cover of the 1998 VHS features an image from Thomas, Percy and the Dragon, but that episode isn't on this release.
  • The front cover of the 2000 VHS and original DVD features an image from Passengers and Polish and a mirrored picture from A Close Shave, but those episodes aren't on this release. Also, in the picture from the former, Duncan is wearing his normal face, but his reflection shows him wearing his angry face.
  • On the iTunes release, the stories after The Runaway are out of sync.
  • On the iTunes release, the first few seconds of Percy Proves a Point are cut off.
  • "Duck Takes Charge" comes before "Percy and the Signal", meaning the viewers won't understand the latter being mentioned.
  • The DVD captions refer to Sir Topham Hatt as "Sir Top-M-Hat" and the Branch Line as a "French Line" during Percy's Victory Song.
