Top 10 Best Thomas & Friends Episodes

For this list, let's go over the Top 10 Best Thomas and Friends Episodes. This list features a mixture of the classic, the new and the CGI eras episodes.

The Top Ten

1 Escape

I Think this is my Second or Third Favourite Thomas the Tank Engine Episode

So, I guess I'll be sharing my opinions on all fourty six episodes on this list, starting with my favorite episode of the whole show. This episode knew just the right characters to use at just the right spots, Oliver and Toad are some really lovable characters (Especially in seasons 18 and 19), the music was fantastic, and, while they did remove Isabelle, it still worked perfectly. But by far the greatest aspect of this episode was the atmosphere, it's dark and epic feeling that you would most certainly not expect to have in a show about talking trains is really what makes this episode so memorable, 98/100

This episode has been know to be my favorite from Season 3! I like Oliver, he is a great character and I love how he had many major roles in the classic series!

Douglas was a very interesting main character here, and it worked perfectly. We are now introduced two epic characters, Oliver and Toad.

2 Edward's Exploit

my favorite episode of the entire series because of Edward,the sets,music,story and moral.

Edward's defining moment. It's awesome how he perseveres through the storm despite his side rods breaking

I actually read the story version of this before the actual video. Either way, this episode shows that determination is a good answer, and you gotta love the ending where Edward is like, "really want to insult me NOW? "

Best Season 2 episode and best Edward the #2 engine episode ever! It was very nice that he got the passengers home, and that he battled on through the storm.

3 Thomas and Bertie

This episode is the best episode of all Thomas history! The race was brilliant, I loved that windmill shot, and Thomas and Bertie star in an episode together! I just love it whenever they do that!

The Episode that makes the Classics stand out

My number for Bertie is 2. My number for thomas is 1.

The opening theme is based on this episode

4 All At Sea

How was this not on the list? The music and visuals provided the perfect atmosphere for this episode. The final shot at the sunset was the best way to end a VHS

5 Thomas and the Special Letter

One of my 5 favorites of the show for feeling like the biggest thing to ever happen in Thomas.

The 100th episode of the series. Would have been a perfect series finale if needed.

This episode is very entertaining to watch. This episode will probably stay my favorite from Season 4 for a very long time!

Funny crash, interesting story, surprising, and becomes doubtful to hopeful. The whole plot is terrific.

6 Gallant Old Engine

Easily the most awesome moment in the narrow gauge arc. The music goes perfectly with Rheneas's determination and perseverance.

This episode is okay in my opinion. Kinda sad this marks Duke's last appearence to date.

7 Toad Stands By

Oliver teaching those trucks a lesson is his most awesome moment!

Lol The silliest Episode Of Thomas and Percy ever!

8 Granpuff

I don't know why, but the music playing over the viaduct scenes were so memorable

Great episode

Smudger is dead

9 Troublesome Trucks

James' most awesome moment in the classic series. The triumphant theme will be stuck in your head

James silliest Episode Of all time!

10 Disappearing Diesels

The Contenders

11 Old Iron

Edward's second most awesome moment after Edward's Exploit. Just goes to show old ain't the same as broke.

It's a classic. James also breaks the fourth wall in this episode - when he says "Late again! " he says it to the camera rather than Edward's face.

James-I’m sorry for calling you old Iron Edward thanks for saving me
Edward-You’re welcome James
James and Edward becoming friends

12 The Fastest Red Engine on Sodor
13 Rusty and the Boulder

People hate this for Disney. Are you guys high? Disney has NOTHING to do with Thomas. This was epic, chilling, and gave goosebumps!

14 Wayward Winston
15 Three Cheers for Thomas

And so we come to the last episode of the classic series, and it's just got to be the BEST swan song ever in the history of Thomas!

SPOILERS: A sequel to my #1 favorite episode was brilliant.

Oh yeah, all the times Thomas and Bertie have raced over the years. Thomas and Bertie, Hooray for Thomas, Thomas' shortcut and even Sodor's legend of the lost treasure have payed a tribute to the races of Thomas and Bertie.

What is your favourite episode

16 Who's Geoffrey

It is the number 1 epsidoe. It is the funniest

17 A Close Shave

a great crash and an end to the Duck and Diesel trilogy makes this a fantastic episode.

I love this episode so much. My favorite part is when Duck said, "It's too late! " One time, I did a pumpkin project out the book. I used green paint for the sides, gray paint for the face, black paint for the eyes and mouth and the number 8, and I used cotton balls for the shaving cream. I was in second place.

Good to see justice being delivered

really funny I love it

18 Make Someone Happy
19 Bulldog

When I was a kid the cliff scene was the most suspenseful moment ever. It's amazing how Duke manages to rescue Sir Handel with only a few saucepans

20 Edward the Hero

This was a Sharon Miller episode? Well!

Edward the hero blue ENGLISH

21 A Scarf for Percy

"My best trousers too!"
"Yes sir, please sir!"

This episode is amazing! My favorite 3rd season and classic series episode!

The accident never gaets old!

WHOA! there is no way that I should say a word mentioned a few times in this episode. its just too funny! this needs to be top 5

22 Best Friends

Friendship is Magic!

Random Guy: OH NO!

Thomas and Percy's friendship is amazing as always, even in that certain S15 episode everyone complains about. It's always nice to see them star in an episode together.

Silliest Episode Of Thomas hanging out with Percy!

Best friends forever Thomas!

Wil nevile return in ful cgi

23 Steam Roller

We need more steam vehicles in this show other than George and Trevor. Steam cars, buses, and wagons maybe.

George is great!

24 The Sad Story of Henry

Come Out Henry is also known as The Sad Story Of Henry because it gets even sadder in part 2 than in part 1.

My favorite episode hands down.

The fat controller is so lazy

25 School of Duck

uhm ok how did the children get home?
