“What did you do that for?"
"Make that noise."
"I was trying to sing in that way you two sing.”
―Lorenzo and Thomas

Too Loud, Thomas! is the nineteenth episode of the twenty-third series.


Thomas wants to perform opera like Lorenzo and Beppe but finds it a lot more difficult than he first thought. Unfortunately, his attempts accidentally lead to him losing his voice just as he has a message to deliver.






  • Joseph May as Thomas
  • Vincenzo Nicoli as Lorenzo and Beppe
  • Anna Francolini as Gina
  • Antonio Magro as Stefano, the Washdown Workers, the Italian Farmer and the Passengers
  • Flaminia Cinque as Ester
  • Montserrat Lombard as Mia and a Passenger


  • This is the first episode where all the Italian characters appear.
  • At one point, Thomas breaks the fourth wall when his singing shatters the "screen". This marks the first time in the Big World! Big Adventures! series where he has done another fourth wall break besides talking to the viewers.
  • This episode marks Stefano's last appearance to date.
  • The fantasy sequence is a reference to the Italian opera, Pagliacci.


  • Thomas has his US voice in the UK dub during the fantasy sequence.
  • In the close-up of Lorenzo before Thomas starts shouting, Thomas is not beside Lorenzo.
  • When Thomas leaves Lorenzo and Beppe at the junction, we don't see the points switch for Thomas or Lorenzo.
  • After the fantasy sequence, the coal hopper behind the water tower disappears.
  • Antonio Magro is credited for voicing an "Archaeologist", however, none of them spoke. He was also uncredited for voicing the Washdown Workers.
