Best Thomas & Friends Seasons

The Top Ten

1 Season 5

I loved the crashes and it was the one I grew up with

The most iconic and dark episodes

My brother used to watch this one 24/7 lol. - whattheheckamidoing

These episodes would just terrify me as a kid these episodes were just so much darker than others. The Writing was amazing and the music was spot on.

2 Season 1

Nothing beats the original where the stories of a blue tank engine and his friends began.

This season would also be known as the golden age of Thomas and friends.

This season and Season 22 are the best seasons and my favorites.

This is the best season of the show. In fact I call the episodes of the first season 'the good old days'. None of the other seasons beat this one. That's just my opinion though.

3 Season 4

Season 4 is one of the most memorable seasons in the series. Duke, Stenpny, and the other characters in the season are well developed and the season was made for 50 years of Thomas. - Sirtopemhat109

This is the main season I grew up with. I prefer this season to Season 1 nowadays. I have always loved the narrow gauge engines more than the standard gauge engines because they're smaller. Overall, this is my only favorite season of the model series. The first 14 episodes of the season are the best of Season 4. If it weren't for the narrow gauge engines, I wouldn't love Season 4 much.

Beautiful season

4 Season 2

Best season of the show. This was the season that had the most episodes I grew up as a little kid. - TheThomas5252

Best season of the show. Great story telling, music, character development & introduced.

5 Season 3

4 words jam, bees, oliver, camera.

I personaly love this season. best soundtrack, stories, (Escape!, Percy's Promise, and Henry's Forest. Just to name a few.) good characters introduced, and felt very well done. of course Ringo Starr couldn't narrarate it, but Michael Angelis and George Carlin were still great narrarators! and it introduce the music video, which was Thomas' Anthem. But I think if there were a king of seasons besides 1, this would be it. Thank you for reading my opinion.

6 Season 6

The last classic season.

Did you know that this was the first season not to feature BoCo? - FinnsWorld

SESESEASON 7 IS THE LAST CLASSIC SEASON! - FinnsWorld

7 Season 17

This saved the series. Andrew Brenner really seems to know what he was doing, and even in CGI, these episodes can start becoming classics again. So ironic that the series saviour is Andrew Brenner, the one who wrote "Henry's Forrest," an episode highly critisized by Rev.W. Awdry himself.

Did you know that this was the first season not to feature Ferdinand? - FinnsWorld

Did you know that this was the first season not to feature Bash? - FinnsWorld

Did you know that this was the first season not to feature Dash? - FinnsWorld

8 Season 7

The last season in the classic series.

Or the first in the new series

9 Season 8

Did you know that this was the first season not to feature Peter Sam? - FinnsWorld

Did you know that this was the first season not to feature Terence? - FinnsWorld

Did you know that this was the first season not to feature Duncan? - FinnsWorld

Did you know that this was the first season not to feature Rusty? - FinnsWorld

10 Season 18

I'm exited for what Andrew plans for us.

Hasn't aired in U.S.A. I think ;3

The Contenders

11 Season 11

Good

Did you know that this was the first season not to feature Harold? - FinnsWorld

12 Season 20

This Is My 3rd Favourite Season. First Of All, Thomas Is Not The Lead Character In Any Episodes. The New Characters (Glynn, Skiff, Rex, Mike, Bert, Bradford, Ryan & Hugo) Were All Very Good, Except Hugo. Favourites From The Season Would Include: Henry Gets The Express, The Miniature Railway Episodes, Love Me Tender, The Daisy Episodes, Pouty James & Blown Away.

13 Season 22

The episodes of this season are very enjoyable and fresh. Quite a treat from Mattel Creations. The balance of episodes between Sodor, China, Australia and India are by far the best in the CGI series. The new characters introduced are very likeable, the return of Ashima, Rajiv, Shane and Yong Bao was lovely, Thomas' adventures in China, India and Australia give him time to explore life outside of Sodor and lastly the entire concept of exploring different cultures and countries is a very interesting and important series of life lessons for children. Season 22 is my favorite season of the CGI series. I definitely love these episodes even more than the special itself. It is in my opinion that Mattel Creations has no intention of ruining something we love. So the older and younger generation of fans have nothing to sweat.

Overall rating for Season 22: 9 / 10

14 Season 16
15 Season 15

HORRIBLE BECAUSE IT HAS WONKY WHISTLE

Horrible season! The worst ever!

16 Season 13

Thomas and the Runaway Kite, Buzzy Bees, The Lion of Sodor and Playtime are some of my least favorite in the series. Awful season

Did you know that this was the first season not to feature Mighty Mac? - FinnsWorld

Did you know that this was the first season not to feature Freddie? - FinnsWorld

17 Season 12

Should be #1.

18 Season 21
19 Season 9

Only season from 8-16 that wasn't a total writeoff.

20 Season 19
21 Season 14

Most underrated season ever. Hence seasons 13-16 of T&F aren't too bad in my book, though I think Arc's Thomas looked better compared to this.

22 Season 10
