Top 10 Best Thomas & Friends EpisodesFor 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
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
Douglas was a very interesting main character here, and it worked perfectly. We are now introduced two epic characters, Oliver and Toad. - DKartWoomy
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! - TheThomas5252
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 - UnderratedEpisodeAdvocate
Edward's defining moment. It's awesome how he perseveres through the storm despite his side rods breaking - UnderratedEpisodeAdvocate
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? " - DKartWoomy
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. - TheThomas5252
Aesthetically the best Thomas and Friends episode. The sets combined with the remixed version of Edward's theme combine to create the perfect mood for the episode. From a critical view with a fillm background it is easily one of the best episodes of Thomas and Friends
Oliver teaching those trucks a lesson is his most awesome moment! - UnderratedEpisodeAdvocate
Lol The silliest Episode Of Thomas and Percy ever!
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! - TheThomas5252
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 - UnderratedEpisodeAdvocate
Easily the most awesome moment in the narrow gauge arc. The music goes perfectly with Rheneas's determination and perseverance. - UnderratedEpisodeAdvocate
This episode is okay in my opinion. Kinda sad this marks Duke's last appearence to date. - FinnsWorld
People hate this for Disney. Are you guys high? Disney has NOTHING to do with Thomas. This was epic, chilling, and gave goosebumps! - DKartWoomy
Edward's second most awesome moment after Edward's Exploit. Just goes to show old ain't the same as broke. - UnderratedEpisodeAdvocate
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
James' most awesome moment in the classic series. The triumphant theme will be stuck in your head - UnderratedEpisodeAdvocate
James silliest Episode Of all time!
The 100th episode of the series. Would have been a perfect series finale if needed. - UnderratedEpisodeAdvocate
Funny crash, interesting story, surprising, and becomes doubtful to hopeful. The whole plot is terrific. - DKartWoomy
This episode is very entertaining to watch. This episode will probably stay my favorite from Season 4 for a very long time! - TheThomas5252
I don't know why, but the music playing over the viaduct scenes were so memorable - UnderratedEpisodeAdvocate
Happy cries. Ending of story leads to a happy ending next story. Duke... Is such a brave dude, he literally doesn't mind the fact he is SLEEPING ALONE WITH MOLDY SHED! Smudger is a severely overrated character, but he died, and has a slick chance of returning. - DKartWoomy
Smudger is dead
Nearly sounds like something Sharon Miller wrote. - DKartWoomy
What? How? - DKartWoomy
The original pilot - UnderratedEpisodeAdvocate
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 - UnderratedEpisodeAdvocate
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 - UnderratedEpisodeAdvocate
We need more steam vehicles in this show other than George and Trevor. Steam cars, buses, and wagons maybe. - UnderratedEpisodeAdvocate
George is great! - FinnsWorld
Very hilarious, and Sir Handel gets his butt kicked again! - DKartWoomy
This episode had the "Busy Going Backwards" vibe. - DKartWoomy
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. - TheThomas5252
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
This was like a rematch to "Thomas & Bertie's Great Race/Thomas & Bertie," and was a great ending to the classic series... 😥 - DKartWoomy
It is the number 1 epsidoe. It is the funniest
Not the funniest, but it does teach kids to not tell lies. Always admit mistakes, and you'll be glad you did! - DKartWoomy
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 story, but was not a great ending to the Duck Vs. Diesel trilogy. - DKartWoomy
Good to see justice being delivered - UnderratedEpisodeAdvocate
really funny I love it
Hilarious episode, great start to Season 3! - DKartWoomy
"My best trousers too!"
"Yes sir, please sir!" - UnderratedEpisodeAdvocate
This episode is amazing! My favorite 3rd season and classic series episode!
The accident never gaets old!
This was a Sharon Miller episode? Well!
Edward the hero blue ENGLISH
Gordon's accident is hilarious - UnderratedEpisodeAdvocate
Very funny and great episode! Number 1 in my book!
Good to see some Chinese culture being represented - UnderratedEpisodeAdvocate
The dragon legit gave me nightmares when I was younger 😂 - kanetheundertaker25
Always the standout episode to me as a kid for its visuals, music and memorable crash scene.
Beautiful tale, similar to a nursery rhyme. The Music and Visual Imagry is more than fantastical. And it's a thomas episode in which henry is used to his full potential... Something that didn't happen often in the newer seasons.
Henry's most well known adventure. After this he gets a new shape and grows out of his sick weak phase - UnderratedEpisodeAdvocate
The best episode featuring Henry ever showing he was never a scaried engine just a though one stronger than the others and braver than Thomas, also showing he doesn't need any special coal. Even though the new series has this idea still in
Seriously, why do people hate this episode, the house crash was hilarious and that lady who only cared about her breakfast was quite an ass
I love this episode!
"You miserable engine! Just look what you've done to our breakfast! Now I shall have to cook some more!
That lady was mean to Thomas - UnderratedEpisodeAdvocate
Yo best episode ever!
No. - DKartWoomy
Percy's moment of awesome in the classic series. The music perfectly fits his battle with the storm - UnderratedEpisodeAdvocate
Peter Sam's most memorable adventure - UnderratedEpisodeAdvocate
The trucks crashing into the barge is fun to watch - UnderratedEpisodeAdvocate
One of the best Christmas episodes. Modern Christmas Thomas episodes, in my humble opinion, hands down, better than classic ones. - DKartWoomy
Connor is way faster then Gordon and he and Caitlin should replace Gordon and Gordon should be scrapped also and sent away because he's not very nice and he's rude to the other engines and Connor and Caitlin are much more friendlier them Gordon and they are much faster then Gordon also and they will be taking over the express from him also
I LOVE this episode! It's both my favorite Season 18 episode, and my favorite Christmas episode! It was great Connor got an episode to himself! - TheThomas5252
A big turning point in the series. Thomas gets his own branch line, Annie and Clarabel get introduced, and James gets his signature red paint - UnderratedEpisodeAdvocate
Goes to show Henry's a literal green thumb - UnderratedEpisodeAdvocate
Best Sharon Miller Era episode
It's hilarious when Bill and Ben torment Gordon - UnderratedEpisodeAdvocate
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. - TheThomas5252
Silliest Episode Of Thomas hanging out with Percy!
Best friends forever Thomas!
Wil nevile return in ful cgi
Diesel 10's episode debut was great, and so was the first episode debut/speaking role of Sidney. This episode felt like a parody of How the Grinch Who Stole Christmas, and contained references to Thomas and the Magic Railroad and Day of the Diesels; both good movies! - TheThomas5252
Wil diesel ten return
Flying Scotsman, the most famous steam locomotive in history, makes an appearance! - UnderratedEpisodeAdvocate
I love this episode, Henry was funny.
Anyone else thought the break van deserved it - UnderratedEpisodeAdvocate
Luckily No One was hurt
Except THE BRAKE VAN WHO JUST DIED - yk1ll3r
Spite Douggie wad ye! Take that!
Hands down, my favorite Hit era episode, period. Rosie is a great character and definitely needs another episode to herself (of course, this episode was about Thomas too). - TheThomas5252
This was perhaps the only great story on the Carnival Capers DVD, while most of the others suck. - DKartWoomy
The whole plot was great and Rosie is a funny character! - DKartWoomy
I want rosie to have more roles.
Have you watched Season 13, 21, and 22? She has main parts in few episodes. - DKartWoomy
HELLP NO! THIS EPISODE SUCKS!
