5.0 out of 5 stars Very Happy! 30 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase
Very happy with this DVD.

For less that 5 you get over 2 hours of Thomas & his fiends. That's 26 episodes to keep you and your kids happy. Also very pleased that the DVD has subtitles too.

Also what I loved about series 1 is some story lines follow on. Like when Henry is bricked up inside the tunnel and we even see him bricked up for a good few eps before they take the wall down & let him out again. You don't get much of that with kids shows these days :(

5.0 out of 5 stars Original and best 15 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase
We all love it, no more arguments about who wants what on t.v. it's agreed. Narrated by Ringo Star all the stories from the beginning - awesome. Some people may think it's a little old fashioned but my kids love it and would watch it from beginning to end if I let them! I would recommend this dvd to all Thomas fans young and old. It arrived in perfect condition and quickly too.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Christmas Present This Year 24 Oct 2012
By Thomas
Verified Purchase
Another great release by HIT Entertainment. The first three seasons of 'Thomas the Tank Engine & Friends' are the ones to get as they're all remastered from 2004. The remastered episodes were rare in the UK, US and Australia before, as they've been released on separate DVDs, promotional ones etc. Japan is really the one with all the remastered episodes on their home releases, but not as a series compilation. Aside from the wonderful and crystal clear footage, these episodes are wonderfully written by a vicar named Rev.W.Awdry, creator of the Railway Series, along with son Christopher Awdry and are much more better then the recent series' writings. The narration is nostalgic with the likes of Ringo Starr, who is a big nostalgia factor for kids who grew up with the model animation from 1984-2008. There has been other narrators at the time like Michael Angelis and Pierce Brosnan, but when you ask a question whether its trivia or asking one in general, Ringo's the first thing that comes to mind, like he was during The Beatles. A new age fan will enjoy these episodes, it has good morals and entertaining story lines and if CGI isn't your cup of tea, these DVDs will be your entertainment. These are a great idea for a Christmas gift this year. The episodes are all remastered, with great story lines, memorable music, morals and stunning model animation. You can also buy the S4-7 as well to show your kids the old Thomas and share the joy you had when you were a child with your child, along with 'Blue Mountain Mystery'.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great 15 Sep 2013

My grandson adores Thomas the Tank engine and his enjoyment of this DVD is obvious to all watching him. It is great to have the originals which I think are better than the more modern versions. My son adored Thomas and my grandson follows in his footsteps.

5.0 out of 5 stars The original! 27 Mar 2014
By helen TOP 1000 REVIEWER

Thomas the tank engine will only ever be with Ringo Starr telling the story for me! I used to love it as a child and now this is for my nephew. No computerisation and it's great stories straight from the books. My only issue is that when the stories were on tv they used to put them on a couple at a time and in between each one there were line ups of all the characters with blackboards in front of them with their names on so you knew who was who. I used to love that bit, silly I know but anyway that's the only niggle! Buy the dvd for kids or buy it for nostalgia, enjoy!!!
