Time for Trouble and other stories (Also known as Volume 8 in New Zealand) is a UK/Australian/New Zealand VHS release featuring the first eight third season episodes narrated by Michael Angelis. The New Zealand release was narrated by George Carlin.



Thomas, everyone's favourite little blue engine, returns with a full head of steam for these brand new adventures!

  3. Time for Trouble
  4. Gordon and the Famous Visitor
  5. Donald's Duck
  6. Thomas Gets Bumped

  • This is the first VHS to release episodes before they aired on television.
  • An early release of this video included an early narration that was later re-recorded.
  • On the New Zealand release, a section with the line, "The buffers weren't secure" is omitted from Diesel Does it Again, which creates a continuity error as Diesel is only seen pushing two trucks into the sea.
