Thomas and Bertie's Great Race and Other Adventures is a US VHS featuring two first series episodes and two third series episodes narrated by George Carlin. This video was made for the TV Teddy range where the toy bear could interact with the scenes and presenter in the video.
Join T.V. Teddy as he talks, laughs, and sings along with this exciting new interactive video. In the Anthony's Attic shows, you'll find out why a cactus has needles and why an elephant has tusks. While some things look silly at first, don't be fooled - each has its own unique and important use! You'll also visit the fastest man in Scotland for a sing-along about racing... and safety.
PEEP-PEEP! Have fun and adventures on the Island of Sodor with Thomas the Tank Engine & Friends. Cheer on Thomas and Bertie in the famous Great Race! Meet Terence the Tractor who is uniquely useful with his endless tracks! Watch closely as Mavis helps Toby out of a tight spot! And experience Gordon's trouble with mud!
