Stories and Stunts is a series of online videos featuring merchandise of the characters on a homemade diorama-style background in the middle of a plot point. The videos are narrated by children, and unlike past videos, the characters interact with the narrator. Homemade figurines were also used as minor human characters, much like the Thomas Creator Collective, which it replaces. The first video was uploaded to the official YouTube channel on 31 August 2019.
