Bonus Features

Trivia

  • This was the final US VHS release to be individually co-distributed by Gullane Entertainment by its original name, The Britt Allcroft Company. The company changed 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 marks the first US release to feature more than one narrator.
  • The back cover refers to Thomas and Percy's Mountain Adventure by its UK title.
  • While 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 story in the whole release to have a title that is not all uppercase letters.
  • This is the last US VHS released in a blue cassette.
  • Canadian copies of the VHS do not feature the Anchor Bay logo but simply start off with the Britt Allcroft logo.
  • 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
  • Some 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.
  • This was the only Anchor Bay Entertainment DVD release of Thomas & Friends that was not re-released by Lionsgate. This is likely because the episodes and bonus features from this release were reissued as part of Ultimate Christmas.

Goofs

  • The back cover of the VHS states there are two new stories, but Snow was the only new episode.
  • The description says that Thomas, Percy and Terence shoveled out villagers just in time for Christmas, but the holiday being celebrated was Thanksgiving and not Christmas.
  • On the front cover, Thomas' eyes are slightly wonky.
