Trivia

  • This and Mud Glorious Mud are the only releases to have George Carlin and Alec Baldwin credited in the HIT Entertainment intro as well as the only George Carlin and Alec Baldwin releases to feature the HIT Entertaiment intro, transitions and end credits.
  • This marks the first DVD of a few things:
    • The first time George Carlin's narration of Thomas Gets Tricked was released on DVD since it was seen on the Shining Time Station episode Stacy Forgets Her Name.
    • The first Universal Studios re-releases not to feature a logo after the credits ended. Instead of showing the logo after the credits, it pauses and then replaces it with the series 8 blank credits at the end. This might have been done to prevent the 2001-2006 HIT Entertainment Logo from popping up after the credits.
    • The first US DVD to feature remastered colour of series 5 episodes.
  • Despite all the episodes, the song Boo! Boo! Choo-Choo and the style of the cover being from the Gullane Series, the intro and outro sequences, the transitions between episodes, the style of the title cards, the Engine Roll Call song, the credits and Robert Hartshorne's music for the episode Bad Day at Castle Loch are from the Series 8-12.
  • The title card for "Diesel's Devious Deed" reads "Diesel's Devilish Deed," but is still referred to by its original name on the back cover.
  • The Fogman is also parsed as "The Fog Man" for this release. The 2014 re-release corrects this on the back cover.
  • Emily appears on the front cover despite not appearing in any of the episodes, although she does appear in the Engine Roll Call song and the Character Gallery. Strangely enough the image of Emily is an edited promotional photo from the eighth series episode, Halloween.
  • The slip cover of the 2018 re-release has a glow-in-the-dark cover that uses an outline of a CGI image of Thomas. This also marks the only re-release to date distributed by 9 Story Media Group, but the DVD itself is the 2015 version or the original release for some copies. This style has also been used for various other DVDs of popular children's TV shows sold during Halloween of 2018.

Goofs

  • The credits mistake Mike O'Donnell and Junior Campbell as the music composers for Bad Day at Castle Loch; their music was replaced by Robert Hartshorne's music. The episode is also titled "A Bad Day at Castle Loch" in the credits.
  • On the pick a story menu and the title cards, Diesel's Devious Deed is called "Diesel's Devilish Deed" and The Fogman is called "The Fog Man".
  • There appears to be a copy of Emily's image behind Thomas on the covers of some releases.
  • In the credits, Robyn Charteris is credited as "Robin Charteris" and Robin Kingsland is credited as "Robert Kingsland."
  • The back cover lists "2 Sing-Along Song" instead of "2 Sing-Along Songs."
  • On the front cover Thomas' lamp appears to be cut off a bit.
