About me

Staffordpromo

My favourite CGI character - Stafford

Hi everyone, I'm SteamTeam one of the admins here. I am now also an admin of the Sooty Wikia (see bottom of this page for link).

I live in the UK.

I am 22 years old (9th March 1994) and have watched Thomas since I was little. I loved it then and love it now. My favourite episodes are Stepney Gets Lost, Thomas, Percy and the Post Train and Off the Rails. My other favourite TV shows include Sooty, Family Guy and American Dad!

What I'm doing - RIGHT NOW!

At the moment I'm hosting and writing SteamTeam Quizzes each week for Calico's YouTube channel. I'm also planning Series 2 of Ronnie the Mole and Recent Purchases.

And there's also a good chance I'll be listening to Phil Collins and Genesis whilst doing all of the above!

My Work for Other Users

I do quite a lot of voice work for other users' series as well as my own. Here's some of it:

I have also written for the following series:

I also provided many of the scripts for my own puppet show series "Ronnie the Mole" on Calico's channel. I also work as a head writer/script editor, puppeteer, assistant director, editor and producer on the series. I also wrote several scripts and provided many of the voices on my own TrackMaster series.

I don't very often write for other people's series due to not having the time, but I like to write episodes if I have a good idea.

If you would like me to take part in your series you can leave me a message here on the wikia, PM me on YouTube or email me at calicotv123@gmail.com

CalicoBonEsterphon

I act as a sort of "agent" for Calico as he is rather busy and has to use my equipment to record on anyway. Like me, he is always happy to voice in other people's series and is very versatile. His best voices include Peter Sam, Spencer, Gordon, Skarloey, Rheneas, Henry, 'Arry and Bert although I think he could probably voice any of the Thomas characters pretty well.

Here is some of his work:

If you would like him to appear in your series, it is probably best to contact me (as Calico rarely has time to check his own PMs) and I'll contact him directly on your behalf. Auditions are available on request although they may take a while to do as he can only record lines on Sundays.

So if you would like Calico to appear in your series, you can PM me, leave me a message here or email us at calicotv123@gmail.com

Season Six

Season six kicked off with a "pilot" episode, Saved You!, Monday September 6th, 2010. That was followed by a week's worth of episodes that were shown over the week starting on November 15th, 2010. It contained two television series-adapted episodes and six original creations written by myself and Thomasfan. It was also the first season to feature a voice cast (except Saved You!). Here's the episodes (to watch them, just click on them);

SteamTeam Quizzes is a new series of videos that I write, present and co-direct with my friend and producer C. BonEsterphon. Each video sees C. BonEsterphon quizzed on either Thomas episodes or specials. They are, in his words, "to help him become more of a Thomas fan". Viewers are encouraged to join in at home and competitions are held at the end of each series.

My opinion of CGI

When I first heard Thomas & Friends were moving to CGI, I was devastated, I thought it would completely ruin the series. I pre-ordered HOTR and when it came I had my doubts about it, but when I finally watched it I was amazed. I think all the people that dislike the new CGI Thomas should give it a chance. It brings more realism in my opinion, but, don't get me wrong, I loved the old Thomas and am still upset that it is an end of an era, but I think CGI might not be such a bad idea. Just take a look at the CGI promo of Cranky (below), the sea is so wonderfully realistic, something which never could be properly achieved in the model series.
