“I just wanted to save the snow from melting."
"Oh my sweet Cleo, I know it's hard but at least you saw how amazing snow is and enjoyed it while it lasted."
"I suppose so but... but... I'm going to miss it!”
―Cleo and Ruth

Cleo's First Snow is the twelfth episode of the twenty-fourth series.


One day, Cleo discovers snow for the first time. Although she is scared of this unfamiliar phenomenon at first, she begins to enjoy it more and more as she helps Ruth run errands. Eventually, Cleo becomes saddened to learn snow does not last forever and tries to save a snowman melting. Unfortunately, she does not manage to find a suitable place to store it before it melts. A few days later, Ruth surprises Cleo with a new invention -- a machine that produces fake snow, thus allowing Cleo to enjoy the snow whenever she wants.

  • Going by production order, this is the nineteenth episode of the twenty-fourth series. It and Nia's Bright Idea were aired out of order in the UK to coincide with the holiday season. As a result, the audience likely would not be familiar with Ruth's Workshop, which officially debuts in Thomas and the Inventor's Workshop, or Cleo, who officially debuts in Cleo the Road Engine.
  • Ruth's snow machine is a retextured version of Mr. Bubbles' Bubble Machine.
  • This episode marks last of a few things:
    • The final appearances of Bertie, Stephen Hatt and Bridget Hatt.
    • The last episode to have Thomas be the only engine who appears, as well as the only time this happens after the twenty-first series episode, Terence Breaks the Ice.
  • This marks Cleo's first appearance (in airing order) and last (in production order).
  • Rachael Miller voices Stephen and Bridget Hatt in this episode rather than Teresa Gallagher.
  • This episode was never aired in Germany and South Korea.
  • In the Estonian, Latvian, Lithuanian and Baltic Russian dubs, the UK dub can be heard in the background as a dubbing track was not used.
