Great original theme music but doesn't stand up well
on 28 September 2013
I bought this not realising it was the original old Thomas I used to watch as a kid in the 80s. I was as horrified as the next eighties child when I saw they had made Thomas CGI and ditched the fab theme tune, so it was great to see the original stop motion and infinitely superior theme music.
However, my son got used to watching the CG version on TV so when he saw this DVD - which only has the voice of Ringo (trains don't have individual voices)and the trains expressions only change infrequently he demanded that I turn it off.
Still prefer this theme tune as the new one sends us all over the edge but the more static nature of the storytelling isn't what modern kids are used to and I immediately had to buy seres 13
