“Oh, I know Rajiv said I shouldn't, but I really want to see the monkey palace, and if I hurry, I won't even be late with the coconuts.”

Thomas and the Monkey Palace is the eighth episode of the twenty-second series.


In India, Thomas is told to deliver a truckload of coconuts for refreshing coconut water. While on his way to collect the coconuts, he discovers a branch line leading to a mysterious monkey temple. Asking Rajiv about it, he tells Thomas that the branch line leads to the Monkey Palace, which is riddled with troublesome monkeys. Although Rajiv warns Thomas to stay clear of it, he visits it on his way to deliver the coconuts.

At the Monkey Palace, Thomas sees several cheeky monkeys around him. They start to clamber all over him and his trucks. While Thomas attempts to leave, one of the monkeys gets trapped in the truck. When it tries to attract Thomas' attention, Thomas comes to a sudden stop, but he spills all the coconuts. Thomas, however, does not know this and leaves the monkey and the coconuts behind while delivering his truck.

When Thomas arrives, Charubala points out the missing coconuts from Thomas' truck. This makes him realise that they must have fallen out when he suddenly stopped. Thomas attempts to retrieve them, but one of the other engines runs over them and destroys them. The monkey that Thomas accidently took tries to attract his attention, pointing out to him that he needs help in getting back to the Monkey Palace.

When Thomas returns the monkey, the others try again to attract his attention; they also have coconuts, which they immediately load into Thomas' truck. Thomas later returns to the station and delivers the coconuts and everyone - even Charubala - find the coconut water delicious.
