My first memories - I was given, in 2001, Thomas Gets Bumped and Trust Thomas, along with wooden models of Thomas, Percy, James, Toby, and Bertie. Such fun.

I remember as a kid having 15-20 VHS tapes, and some were "Best of" episodes, others followed episode order, so one day I tried to make sense of the order of episodes by using the Best of tapes (Since they indicated the volume number of each episode) to figure out the order of the regular tapes.

I think my first TTTE DVD was Thomas and the jet engine, specifically because I can't find it's box and it has a bunch of scratches and it only shows Thomas and the Jet engine because of them, not even showing the home screen, thus making my first episode Thomas and the Jet Engine probably.

I remember just about everything. It was my third birthday so I guess that was 10 or 11 years ago. I was fascinated with standing at the window and just staring at the trains go by! And then my aunt got me a bright yellow dvd with a bright red engine on it it was make someone happy! I watched it after everyone left...and again...and again. I watched it so much that when I saw dvd WITH TOYS! I began collecting eventually I also had Calling all engines with the bronze diesel and Thomas gets tricked with Thomas. I re enacted so many parts from Calling all engines. I had the best time.

The first episode I remember watching was Trouble for Thomas/Thomas and the Trucks. I also remember watching the chase scene from TATMRR over, and over, and over again! Watching it today, I can see why! Laughing

My very first memory of Thomas was from the US VHS *Thomas Gets Tricked and Other Stories*, featuring the very first seven episodes of S1, which were narrated by Ringo Starr.

My first encounter with Thomas and Friends was me going to the Strasburg Railroad for A Day Out With Thomas in 2001. I was four at the time and that was my first real encounter with the franchise. I've loved it ever since, but i grew out of the fandom for a while. As of now, I'm making a return to the fandom, slowly but surely.

My first viewing of Thomas and Friends was when I was very young, maybe around 2 or 3 and my mum told me, she turned on the TV, probably ABC Kids and the Thomas Anthem was playing, possibly with an episode or something. Ever since then I've always loved watching Thomas when it came on the kids channel. The episode I recall watching when I was very young too was Steamroller. I am not sure what my first episode was but I clearly remember watching that episode. Probably why I love Season 4 so much, because it has the first episodes I saw hehe. Another memory was watching Something in the Air, one of my favs to this day. Thomas and Friends has and always will be very close to my heart, and I will always adore this amazing how. I learned my english from the show too I believe haha. Now I'm 20, and I still totally love the show. So glad I discovered Thomas and no matter how old I get, will always be a child at heart, and love Thomas and Friends. Never too old for Thomas, I always say. Very Happy

I remember watching the "Cranky Bugs" VHS and "Thomas Comes to Breakfast" VHS the most. I think my favorite memory, and earliest, had to be my mom taking me to the video rental store/library where I could pick out a VHS. I would choose from the seemingly infinite selection of Thomas tapes. I had a burning curiosity about all the stories on all of these cassettes, and of all the characters that I had only gotten brief glimpses of in music videos/books (Like The Diesel, The Flying Scotsman, etc).

My first memory seems to be watching an episode from Season 5-7 (this was probably 02 or 03) or watching a VHS Tape which had Thomas, Percy and the Coal which could be possibly the very first episode I watched (this was the early 2000's). My first Thomas train I ever got was a 2001 Old Style Thomas from 2001 when I was only 6 or 7 months old in Christmas 01 and my very first memory of all time seems to be me looking at a Thomas Book while getting hit on the head by my older brother and then I have no idea what happened after that?

I remember making layouts in my basement of Thomas wooden railway, and trying to use every piece I had.

my layouts got so big, that once my dad Had to disassemble a chunk of it and reroute it because it was going into the hallway where we had to walk.

The first Thomas VHS I had was either Trust Thomas or Thomas Comes to Breakfast. In fact, we had those in our family (along with some others) before I was born, because my two older brothers had them. I'm pretty sure Thomas Confess to Breakfast was the first one I watched. I always used to think the Diesel/Duck story arc was a continuation of Thomas Comes to Breakfast. Based on Sir Topham Hatt's dialogue at the end, I always thought Diesel was the engine who came to replace Thomas while he s being repaired. It wasn't until I got the Percy Takes the Plunge DVD in about 2006. I already had seen Daisy in Percy's Predicament on the Best of Percy VHS, and I'd seen her in Calling All Engines, but I never knew her origin story. :/

The first Wooden Railway model that I got that we didn't have before I was born was (to my memory) the 1999 Percy.

Just about every day through kindergarten, I would watch Best of Thomas on DVD, which we would always rent from Blockbuster. For some reason, I never bought the DVD until probably 2010 or something, when I got it in a double feature with Best of a James.

My favorite wishes growing up changed. To my memory, here's a list in the best order I can make:
Thomas Comes to Breakfast
Percy's Predicament
Horrid Lorry
Pop Goes the Diesel
Donald and Douglas

As you can tell, must if my early memories were pretty heavy on Season 2 and Season 5.

Around 2000 I got diagnosed with a brain tumor, and I was watching TV when a Season 1 episode came on. I'm pretty sure it was "Come Out, Henry", but I don't remember if Ringo Starr or George Carlin was narrating it. I'm pretty sure it was Mr. Carlin, though.

Before I started school I remember hearing the original theme, which I loved. And still do. That was truly amazing. That was the very first memory for me.

To this day, I get this warm feeling inside whenever I hear the jingle that plays over that Britt Allcroft logo, and the classic theme. the show was such a big part of my childhood
