“Fizzling fireboxes! I wanted to pull the Puppet Show Special on my own, Now look what I've done. The children will not have ice cream or flags, and they won't have their puppet show. Help!”
―Skarloey after falling into the lake

Push Me, Pull You is the nineteenth episode of the twelfth series.


A puppet show is coming and Skarloey wants to have the puppet show special to himself, even though the train is too heavy for one engine. Skarloey engages in a tug-of-war with Rheneas with the train in the middle, but the coupling breaks and Skarloey speeds down the hill, crashing into Duncan and his bunting and Rusty and his ice cream before falling into Percival Pond. Rheneas rescues him and takes the train while Skarloey sorts out the mess he had made and arrives in time for the puppet show.





  • When Skarloey crashes into Rusty's ice cream trucks, he also bumps into Rusty as well.
  • Steam vents from the ground in the close-up of Rheneas' wheels when he is coupled to the puppet show train.
  • Skarloey moves forwards to tell Rheneas that he is his best friend, but in the last scene, Skarloey has gone back to his original position.
  • Rusty's face changes size during this episode.
  • The US title card is missing a comma in the title.
  • When Skarloey hears Rheneas coming, the water in Percival Pond instantly stops rippling.
  • When Skarloey is going up the hill, one of the trucks bounces as it goes over the points.
  • Skarloey's nose became bigger when made in CGI.
  • When Skarloey says "Help!", his tracker can be seen.
  • At the scene where Skarloey is on the points puffing straight towards Percival Pond, he can briefly be seen smiling.
