Top Ten Thomas & Friends Characters That Need to Return

The Top Ten

1 Duke

When will Granpuff come back?


Duke is one of my favourite trains

Guys, Look At The Episode Kevin The Steamie On TTTEWikia. Look At The Planned Appearances...

2 Elizabeth


3 Boco

Boco has got to come back! He's a major part of Thomas and friends!

Boco was used be my favorite ttte character of all time so I voted for it

Bring him back

Kick BoCo out of the contenders! Get him to the top of the list right now! - FinnsWorld

4 Molly

Molly is a character which every kid can relate to! Everyone wants to be special so Molly’s character is perfect! Also, Molly needs more developing. It was a shame she stopped appearing after the transition to CGI because she could have become a better character. Please bring her back and develop her. She is a character who can be used to show life situations in a fun way.

She hasn't been explained enough but really captures our hearts! She would be perfectly explained if she returned to the series!

One of the only HIT characters that I care about.

Yes yes yes yes yes

5 Terence

And make his face less ugly.

He is actually coming back in the 21st season - BowserKoopa22

6 Madge

Madge need to return in season 22 with her red livery.

7 George

Could George work with Jack and the Sodor Construction company in "Digs and Discoveries? "

8 Dennis
9 Smudger

Smudger: Listening Dookie who Worries about a Few Returner

He should definitely return

I wonder what happened to him when the MSR closed.

He would be a really nice character to return

10 Lady

She is one of the cutest characters that I ever seen

She is a graet charitor.

She is the main train not shown much but she gave them life she is islands of sodors mother nature

She’s my favorite tank. HIT. Y U NO BRING HER BACK?!

The Contenders

11 Stepney

I sure hope Stepney will come back. He could play a major role in the new Thomas series: Big World, Big Adventures!

I hope Stepney will be back soon. I haven't seen him in years!

I know a good voice over for Stepney the Bluebell engine; Lizzie Waterworth.

Lizzie would give Stepney her Bello voice. (Bello is a character from a Spanish/British cartoon called Jelly Jamm)

If Lizzie isn't available, I think Mathew Baynton from the classic series of Horrible Histories should give him a Cockney accent.

The blue bell engine

12 Neville

If Neville the C1 appears in CGI, he should talk with a Welsh accent.

If he does return, make him less ugly. His face and design make me want to puke.

This might seem wired but neville is one of my favorite characters

I remember watching this when I was little - KingFab

13 Ned

Clumsy but lovable.

He was replaced by Marion

14 Fergus

Being back Fergus! Do it right!

Of course Fergus should return. If they could bring back Daisy then surely they can bring back Fergus.

He was my favourite and I hated the fact he didn’t return

15 Class 40

Yes I want him to come back

16 Kelly

The Pack are some of the only HIT characters that I care about.

Kelly is the Pack's leader. He needs to return.

17 Freddie

Don't bring him back. HE'S TERRIBLE.

Ripped off both Ivo Hugh and Duke. I hate him.

He should never return.

Freddie is not number 7 on the Skarloey Railway. Ivo Hugh is.

18 Mighty Mac

I loved this narrow gauge engine because their confusion between which route to take was funny in a way. If they might return in the 23rd series, I expect Lewis MacLeod would give Mighty his Zed the Zebra voice and Keith Wickham would give Mac his Gary the dromedary voice. (Zed and Gary are two animals off 64 Zoo Lane)

Mighty mac is a two face character and I like him

One of the only HIT characters that I care about.

The Chang and Eng of Thomas and Friends.

19 Murdoch

He's based on Evening Star, the LAST steam locomotive built before they were all scrapped for diesels. His class was considered the zenith of steam technology, and it's not hard to see why. 10 driving wheels! Amazing - UnderratedEpisodeAdvocate

the best

One of the only HIT characters that I care about.

Sodor needs more goods engines.

20 Arthur
21 Billy

I love Billy - 23windomt

Dear God I hate him.

I don't really like
if they made him maybe NICER then he might get some love

The fact that Billy is in the top 10000000000000000000 is bewilderingly awful. He is the 2nd worst character after *cringes* Lady.

22 Trevor

Don't Tell anyone who has Trevor the traction engine

He is returning in season 20.

I'm glad that the traction engine (Trevor) had returned to T&F in CGI.

Nigel Pilkington/ Chris Ragland do an excellent voice for him, but I was expecting Enn Reitel to be Trevor's voice!

23 Hank

He is a big steam engine and he's blue and strong

24 Bulstrode

If Bulstrode returns to the series, I expect David Holt shall give him his grumpy, nasal voice or if Harry Enfield voices him, he should make him sound like Kevin the teenager!

25 Buster

And make his face less ugly.

26 Sixteen

I think sixteen is a good character he dos not suck

He doesn't count. He never appeared in the television series, moron.
And by the way, he sucks.

Wilbert is boring, go Sixteen!

Why is wilbert boring?

27 Bulgy

Because even though he's stupid, he is a really useful bus.

Ya! Boo! Snubs! Haha!

He returned in the 21st Season

28 The Spiteful Brakevan

He died. Disagree? Watch "Donald & Douglas/Brake Van" again, and think common sense.

He's essential!

29 Derek
30 Caroline

She and Stepney should return together.

31 Colin
32 Jock

Jock is not coming back

33 Isobella

I Think IsaBella Will Come back In CGI In Season 22 Called Max OR Monty The Upcoming

34 Nelson
35 Bertram

I don't know how his nickname is old warrior

This guy needs to return!


36 Byron
37 Harvey

Pretty much, Rocky's now doing his work. But they both are really useful. The last season Harvey appeared in was season 12. Rocky shouldn't be doing all the work now, that puts Harvey out of a job. Although unlike Rocky, Harvey can move on his own. Harvey can't lift everything Rocky can, but he can do a fair amount of lifting. If he ever does come back to the show, I do predict he'll be working at the "Sodor Search and Rescue Center"

He already returned. But I hate him.

38 Bill

Not much to say about these guys. It is a shame that only Ben was in season 12. They should be everywhere together like Michael Angelis and Alec Baldwin say in "Buffer Bother" in their respective country's version. But both are not on the show now, and they should come back.

39 Duncan

Season 16 was suppose to bring back all the original narrow-gauge engines. And they did, all except two. Duke who we'll get to later, and Duncan. I've read some sources that the reason Duncan didn't appear in season 16 or "Blue Mountain Mystery" was because at the time Nitrogen Studios went to the Talyllyn railway to get details on the real life basis's, Duncan's twin, Douglas was under repairs. So Nitrogen couldn't be made at that point. But hopefully by now Douglas has been repaired and Arc Productions will animate him for season 17.

40 Donald

These twins were awesome. They were a couple of characters that didn't make many appearances by the time we got into the season 8 era. I do predict that if they did come back, the same guy would voice them both in the UK and US considering they are Scottish.

41 Oliver

Oliver was an awesome character. And he still is. The problem is, he's not with us now. MissOliverandBlossom was, as his username applies, missed him a lot at the time he joined YouTube. Since at that time were just got into the new model series and Oliver didn't make a comeback until season 12, and then he disappears again.

42 Duck

Now, looking at the picture that I used, you'll have already guessed that Duck is going to come back. Thank you Mr. Brenner! A lot of people thought that Emily had replaced him along with Donald, Douglas and Oliver, but we all know that's not true. Duck never made any huge roles and he hardly was part of the steam team. But he's coming back, thank goodness, everybody rejoice. Let's hope he stays this time and not just disappear again after 1 season.

He's already returned.

43 Ben

He and Bill have already returned.

44 Douglas

I love Douglas, he's my favorite character!

He and Donald have already returned.

45 Hector
46 Flora
47 Old Slow Coach
48 Jeremy
49 Toad
50 Ivo Hugh

The true number 7 narrow gauge engine (Freddie is a stupid faker)

He's my favorite engine and I want him to return.
