Thomas the Tank Engine

DS has discovered this and is enjoying this on Netflix.

I can't stand the American accent on Thomas though although I am probably BU. Nothing against the accent but it seems odd on Thomas.

Does anyone know if there is a brit version somewhere?

Thanks @TeenPlusTwenties
😂 will be singing it all day 😂

@TeenPlusTwenties it's sadly not even that song! It's some jazzed up pop song about travelling the world.

They have the English version on the Channel 5 on demand channel.

They mix up the songs, there's the 2,4,6,8 one and the adventure one too. I haven't come across a Brit specific version yet.

You can probably get DVDs of the priggish wee clipe on music magpie and similar.

Didn't Ringo Starr voice it too?

@eyesbiggerthanstomach If you click on the Audio and Subtitles section before the show comes on you get the option to change the audio to British English.

Channel 5 every morning has an episode of uk Thomas and if you have sky the channel has it on multiple times a day. If you have Netflix there’s Thomas movies.

As a Pp has already mentioned you can change the accent back to British, nice easy fix smile

Great thanks for all your suggestions.

I will wean him on to the Channel 5 one and if that doesn't work I will change the settings to British English.

Thanks all.

They are all on YouTube

YouTube is your friend if you want to watch the original versions. It's in a playlist so runs straight on to the next episode!

There's episodes narrated by Michael Angelis and Pierce Brosnan which are more bearable.

Thomas Big World Adventures, it’s the new thing so they can introduce more trains which your children can nag at you to buy forever and ever and ever (I have a Thomas obsessed child).

My girls loved Thomas so much but they are teenagers now and I miss him! Edward is my favourite 💘😳
