  • This is the first time all of George Carlin's narrations from the first series have been brought together as a complete release. This was previously done with Ringo Starr's UK narrations in the DVD, The Early Years.
  • Henry to the Rescue uses its UK title card.


  • Towards the end of Thomas Gets Tricked, a brief extract of Ringo Starr's narration can be heard when Gordon stops at Wellsworth and Thomas goes back to the turntable. Specifically, Ringo is heard saying the lines "At last, they stopped at a station. Thomas was uncoupled and he felt very silly and exhausted" instead of George.
  • Trouble for Thomas is out of sync.
