Audio problem: When Sir Topham Hatt goes "Mmmmmmm..." if you listen closely, you'll hear Ringo Starr's lip smacking in the background very faintly. This goof is only visible in the American version of the episode.
Audio problem: In the 1992 "Thomas Gets Tricked" VHS release, the music stops and a man's voice says, "Look out for the train!" when Thomas climbs up Gordon's Hill. The voice can still be heard in the 1995 release, but the music does not stop.
Audio problem: (Only in the George Carlin narrated American version) At the end of the episode, when the engines are singing "We wish you a merry Christmas", you can briefly hear Ringo Starr's original narration.
