“Slow down, Thomas! You're spilling my bubble liquid!”
―Mr. Bubbles

Slippy Sodor is the fifth episode of the thirteenth series.

Plot

Thomas has a cracked funnel and goes to the Sodor Steamworks for a replacement. The first funnel is too tiny, and the second is too large; so Kevin collects the only spare funnel left, which looks very funny and makes Thomas feel embarrassed. Thomas is then sent to the docks to collect Mr. Bubbles' special bubble liquid for his show. Along the way, all the engines he passes laugh at him. He puffs away quickly, spilling bubble liquid on nearby roads. This causes the Fat Controller and Mr. Bubbles to slip and crash three times (a muddy ditch, a haystack, and even a pond). By the time Thomas reaches Knapford, all of the liquid is gone. Thomas rushes away to collect some more. This time, he goes slowly, does not mind the teasing and makes it to Knapford safely. The show is a great success, and all the children realise that Thomas' funny funnel looks just like Mr. Bubbles' hat.
