Tuneful Toots is the ninth episode of the ninth season.

Plot

Sir Topham and Lady Hatt are visiting the Skarloey Railway, and the brass band have been invited to play. Rusty takes the band on a tour of the Skarloey Railway, but forgets to return on time and runs out of fuel on the causeway. Luckily, Rusty is able to use his distinctive two-tone horn and the band's music to alert Mr. Percival, the Hatts, and the engines, who come to the causeway to listen to the concert.

Trivia

  • In some early American narrations, Rusty is referred to as a female. The Radio Times also refers to Rusty as a female in the episode description.
  • Going by production order, this is the tenth episode of the ninth season.

Goofs

  • During the introduction, Rusty already looks sad even before the narrator says so.
  • The narrator says that as the band tuned their instruments, the sound "filled Rusty's funnel", but Rusty does not have a funnel.
  • Rusty has a different horn sound.
  • It would be very unlikely that Thomas and the other engines would be able to hear Rusty and the Brass Band from over at the Transfer Yards since they are very far off from the Castle.
  • From this episode until the twelfth season, Peter Sam has Emily's seventh season whistle sound.
  • Brakevans should have been added to Mighty Mac, Duncan, Peter Sam, and Rusty's trains.
