Too Hot for Thomas is the twenty-fifth (twenty-second in Australia) episode of the eighth season.

Plot

It is a hot summer day and James and Toby are taking children to the beach. While Thomas wants to take children as well, he becomes stuck with the job of helping the ice cream factory produce more ice cream; it's very hot at the beach and the ice cream man has run out. Thomas is disappointed, but his driver assures him that if they work quickly, there might still be children to take. So Thomas rushes off to collect the ingredients.

Thomas collects the cream tanker safely and makes his way to Farmer McColl's farm. Along the way, he has to stop at an intersection to let James' passenger train by. Thomas wonders why James gets to take children while he can't. He soon arrives at the farm, where one of his trucks are loaded with strawberries. He thanks the workmen and sets off for Mr. Jolly's Chocolate Factory.

Determined to get his jobs done, Thomas puffs as fast as he can. However, he is going so fast, the signalmen forget to set the points. The points send him onto another line, much to his disdain. Now he much wait for Toby and Henrietta to pass by, pulling even more children. This makes Thomas cross and more determined than ever.

At the chocolate factory, the workmen load another truck with cocoa powder. Thomas tries to set off, but the shunter has yet to release the truck's brakes. Thomas puffs so hard that he breaks the coupling, sending cocoa powder everywhere. Thomas is upset; he is sure that he won't be able to take the children. It takes even longer to clear up the mess, and once the shunter releases the brakes, Thomas sets off.

At the ice cream factory, Thomas is dismayed when the manager asks him to take the ice cream once it's ready. However, when he arrives at the beach, everyone cheers at his arrival. Thomas is very confused, and Percy explains that they have been waiting for their ice cream. Soon, all the children have their ice cream, bringing a smile to Thomas' smokebox. The Fat Controller is there, too, and congratulates Thomas for being really useful.
