“You may find this hard to believe, Thomas, but I'm actually... a bit scared of animals.”

Ace's Brave Jump is the tenth episode of the twenty-fourth series.


Thomas is in Australia when he sees Ace jumping over a ramp. But then, Ace spots a kangaroo, and when he lands on the ground, he goes as fast as he can to avoid it. Thomas is surprised but happy to meet Ace again, and Ace feels the same for Thomas.

Ace tells Thomas that he is going to compete in the Super Stunt Rally and has been practicing. The kangaroo comes again, and Ace, while trying to get away from it, scares it away. Ace confides in Thomas that he is scared of animals.

Thomas wants to help Ace in order to help him get a record-breaking jump of 25 double-decker buses, so he invites Ace along with his job in order to help show him that animals are not scary. At first, Ace is nervous, but as he sees more and more animals, he stops being scared of them and grows to like them.

The next day, Thomas is ready to watch Ace do his jump, but he realises that none of the buses have shown up, likely because they were scared of being jumped over. Thomas, Tamika, Shane, Aubrey, and Aidan decide to position themselves on the track so that Ace can jump over them, and the Super Stunt Rally is a success.
