Bonus Features

Trivia

  • This was the final US home video release to be individually co-distributed by Gullane Entertainment by its original name, The Britt Allcroft Company. The company would change to its official name earlier in the month of its release. The original name logo would still continue to be used as a copyright ident on both print and the opening to releases in spite of this.
  • This also marks the first US release to feature more than one narrator.
  • While the other stories on this release had uppercase letters in the titles as per tradition like previous releases, Thomas and Percy's Mountain Adventure is the only episode in the whole release to have a title that was not all uppercase letters.
  • Some copies of the DVD came with a bonus CD sampler of Thomas' Songs & Roundhouse Rhythms. It featured the following songs:
    1. Thomas' Anthem
    2. It's Great to be an Engine
    3. Really Useful Engine
    4. Let's Have a Race
  • Other copies of the DVD included a CD sampler of Thomas' Train Yard Tracks with different material. It featured the following songs:
    1. Winter Wonderland
    2. The Snow Song
    3. Come for the Ride
    4. Little Engines
  • In some advertisements, the video is called "A Christmas Wonderland and Other Thomas Adventures."
  • The back cover refers to Thomas and Percy's Mountain Adventure by its UK title.
  • This was the only Anchor Bay DVD of Thomas and Friends that was not re-released by Lionsgate. This could be because the release Ultimate Christmas was a combination of this release and Thomas' Snowy Surprise and Other Adventures
    • Because of the fact the DVD release was never reissued, it's considered a collector's item and can go for high prices on selling sites.

Goofs

  • Alec Baldwin was not credited on the back cover despite having narrated Snow.
  • The back cover of the VHS said there were two new stories, but Snow was the only new episode.
  • Like the Ultimate Christmas DVD, the description says that Thomas, Percy and Terence shoveled out villagers just in time for Christmas, but in the US version of the episode that it is referring to, the holiday being celebrated was Thanksgiving and not Christmas.
  • Some Canadian releases do not feature the Anchor Bay logo and start off with the Britt Allcroft logo.
  • On the front cover Thomas' eyes are slightly wonky.
