Thomas Stories

Jukebox Band Song Segment

  • Chattanooga Choo Choo


  • This is the second episode where the jukebox gets overflowed with nickels. The first time was in Double Trouble.
  • It is revealed that Mayor Flopdinger has a wife named Twilene.
  • In the Nick Jr. version, the story Thomas Goes Fishing is cut out.
  • Schemer broadcasts his show on Station WOWOW, "the echo of the Valley."
  • The Magic Bubble sequence uses a clip from "The Phillips Broadcast of 1938," a Puppetoon produced by George Pal.
  • The scene right after the Magic Bubble sequence where Mr. Conductor announces that he's off to the Yacht Club, was occasionally edited for time by certain networks.
  • As Shining Time Station is set in America, the sounds of passing trains usually sound like American steam engine whistles. In this episode however, a passing train sounds like a two-tone diesel horn like those more often heard in Britain.
  • The radio seen at the beginning of this episode is an RCA Victor A-20 "Globetrotter" 1940 model built in Montreal.
