Thomas & Friends Schoolhouse Delivery DVD Review
Thomas the Tank Engine and his friends are back again making tracks to great destinations in the “Thomas & Friends Schoolhouse Delivery DVD. The DVD contains three fourteenth season episodes and one fifteenth season episode from the British children’s television series and has an approximate running time of 48 minutes.
In “Diesel’s Special Delivery” it is market day on the island of Sodor. The engines were very busy taking freight cars of fruits and vegetables to market. All except Diesel, who had to haul slate to the school, since the roof was broken and it was going to rain. At Maithwaite Station, Diesel notices children cheering and clapping for James. Diesel gets jealous when James begins bragging about how he has been clapped and cheered all morning, because he has a very special special load. Wondering just what was so special about Jame’s delivery, Diesel finds out James is carrying pretty, round, pink piglets to Farmer’s Trotter’s Farm. Wanting to be clapped and cheered as well, Diesel makes one mistake after another until he realizes what he has done wrong. Following being scolded by Fat Controller, he sets off to put everything right.
Episode two on the DVD is “Being Percy.” It was a sunny day on the island of Sodor. The engines clickety-clacked along the tracks to Brendam Docks. The docks were extremely busy and Percy was there to collect the mail cars. Thomas and James were in Percy’s way of collecting the cars. Percy asks them politely to move, but neither engine acknowledged him or budged. Percy frustrated that he won’t be on time with his mail and a useful engine, sees Gordon thundering into the docks demanding everyone to get out of his way. Salty moved out of Gordon’s path and Percy took notice. Then Percy gets a thought in his funnel to be just as load as Gordon. After causing an accident, he learns a valuable lesson that he is happy and content being Percy.
The third story is “Henry’s Health and Safety.” The engines all striving to be really useful learn that sometimes things can go wrong. One morning Henry was huffing along happily when he clickety-clacked around the bend straight into an old freight car resulting in his piston rods to be bent. Hiro pushes him to the Steamworks where Victor tells Henry all about health and safety. Henry learns how healthy and safety is about watching out for things that might make accidents happen. However, Henry takes things a little too far and learns that there is a time and a place for health and safety and he should ask before removing a health and safety risk.
The last episode on the DVD is “Happy Hiro.” Thomas is a very cheerful tank engine and wants all his friends to feel just as cheery. One morning at Knapford Station, Thomas becomes puzzled as to why Hiro wasn’t hooting and tooting and was worried he was sad. Later on Thomas learns Hiro is unhappy, due to missing his home in Japan and tries to cheer him up. Yet he actually has done the exact opposite and becomes sad himself.
