Thomas in Trouble - S1-E22

Revealing mistake: In a close-up of Thomas at the beginning of the episode, his wheels aren't moving for 2 seconds. This is easier to see in the restored version.

Coal - S1-E18

Revealing mistake: In a shot of Henry going around a bend in the country, you'll notice that the other side of the coaches is seen painted tan but the other side is painted green and white. This is because of budget limitations.

Thomas in Trouble - S1-E22

Revealing mistake: In the first close-up of the policeman, the camera wobbles.

Percy Runs Away - S1-E17

Character mistake: In the shot of Gordon pulling Percy, he is congratulating Percy, but Percy didn't stop the accident, Gordon himself did. Percy didn't try to get out of the way, Gordon had to put his brakes on as hard as he can. So why is Gordon congratulating Percy?

Coal - S1-E18

Continuity mistake: US Only: Henry reverses on to the siding, then he leaves it again. His tender also hits the station building.

Thomas and Bertie - S1-E14

Continuity mistake: In a close up of Bertie, he has no driver.

Thomas Goes Fishing - S1-E12

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. (00:03:00)

Thomas, Terence and the Snow - S1-E13

Revealing mistake: When Thomas gets dragged out of the snow by Terence, he is still covered in snow all around him, but two shots later, the snow has vanished.

Toby and the Stout Gentleman - S1-E21

Revealing mistake: When Toby and Sir Topham Hatt are at Lower Arlesdale, Toby's face is loose.

Revealing mistake: In a close up of Edward, he has Thomas' whistle sound and no tender.

Season 1 generally

Plot hole: James appears in every episode before his introduction in "Thomas and the Breakdown Train." Also, James is supposed to be black, because at the end of the episode, James is told he will get a different coat of paint. (He is also black in the book).

AAL117

Thomas and Bertie - S1-E14

Revealing mistake: When Thomas leaves Dryaw, in the background, the biplane's propeller stops spinning, revealing that the propeller is actually a CD.
