THESE ARE SOLEY MY OWN OPINION AND NOT FROM THE THOMAS & FRIENDS FAN BASE
TOBY AND THE WHISTLING WOODS
Written by Louise Kramskoy
Directed by Greg Tiernan
Produced by Nicole Stinn
Thomas and James help Toby get through the Whistling Woods.
- The waterfall and the owl are the only good things about this episode, almost looks like as it was filmed instead of animated and the owls gliding past was great too.
- Like Edward, Toby just lost his old but wise personality that he had since the beginning. Now he just a wimpy tram engine.
- Toby wouldn't go at that speed when bumped the trucks off the rails.
- Why was the driver at the back of Toby's cab?
- Thomas and James are older then Toby, there basis were built before him as Thomas was made in 1913, James in 1913/14 and Toby being built in 1914.
What has happened to the loveable tram engine? He was a great character to look up to during the golden era of Thomas the tank engine and now he is a wimpy character who can be scared of anything. I hope the new writing staff and production team bring back the old personality of Toby. How the way Toby bashed into the trucks the last time being derailed was highly unrealistic. Toby can't go at that speed to do something like that. Another thing, Michael Angelis says that Thomas and James are young engines. Thomas and James are much older then Toby with their building years.
The only positive thing that I have for this episode is how the CGI created that wonderful waterfall and the owl gliding past. That is the wonders of the CGI from Nitrogen studios, but despite the wonderfully created waterfall and owl, this episode's writing went down.
