Bonus Features

Trivia

  • In the song selection menu screen, the Every Cloud Has a Silver Lining thumbnail appears the same as on the Spills and Chills DVD.
  • This is the last VHS to use a sticker label, as well as the first to use the new ink label.
  • The French release uses the intermissions from Thomas' Trackside Tunes and excludes the music video at the end and only uses the Britt Allcroft logo.
  • The DVD menu changed in the 2009 release, but the other selections remain the same.
  • On the French release, the soundtrack is echoed. 
  • The Latin American release excludes the episode Make Someone Happy because it did not exist in Spanish at that time. The episode was replaced with Toby's Discovery instead. In 2012, the episode was dubbed in Spanish on the US DVD, Engine Friends.

Goofs

  • Due to a promo being used, the front cover of the original release shows James' whistle pointed upward.
