I have been a "Thomas" fan ever since the age of 2, and to this day (being almost 20) I still enjoy the older episodes. This particular DVD has some of my all-time favorite episodes! Before I get to the full review, I'll give you a brief synopsis of the episodes.

1. Granpuff (Written by the Rev. W. Awdry/Adpated by Britt Allcroft and David Mitton) - The engines are having trouble getting to sleep one night, so Thomas tells them all a story about a narrow gauge railway. "Once upon a time, there were three little engines who lived in their own little shed on their own little railway". The little engines are named Duke, Stuart, and Falcon. At first, Stuart and Falcon are cheeky, but they straighten up when Duke tells them a story about an engine who got turned into a generator for being extremely rude and constantly falling off the rails. Later, the railway is closed, Stuart and Falcon are bought by another railway, and Duke is left alone in his old shed...

2. Sleeping Beauty (Written by the Rev. W. Awdry/Adapted by Britt Allcroft and David Mitton) - ...however, Duke is not forgotten. This story forms the second half of a two-parter, with "Granpuff" being the first half. Almost 30 years after Duke's old line was closed, some visitors come to see Sir Topham Hatt and explain that they want to find and restore Duke. They go out looking for him, but have little or no luck. That is, until one of them falls through the ground and ends up landing on Duke's boiler. Duke's shed is all over-grown and Duke is very rusty. The "rescuers" (as they are referred to), explain that they come from the railway that bought Stuart and Falcon and that they are here to restore him.

My 4 year old loves this movie and watches it over and over. It is the older style one not the one with the "moving" faces. The newer version scares him. (The moving faces are creepy) so if you have a toddler who prefers the older animation Thomas this is it!

I grew up with Thomas the Tank Engine since it all started. Though I'm In my 20s, I still do love the series. Although I like the CGI Version, it still wasn't the same Thomas I grew up. I stick with the original 6 seasons cause its classic, they didn't make it like a childish show(Like Sesame Street, Barney or anything other show I can think of) it was more live action, and they really stick to the original stories. I'm happy to own the Classic series cause not only I can relive my favorite Childhood show, but to show my own kids the Thomas The Tank Engine I grew up with 'BEFORE' he became CGI.

Out of the Thomas episodes I own, Rusty to the Rescue is one of my favorites. It the first episode to kick off Season 4, where it introduce us to the Narrow Gauge Engines. These 6 episodes focus on the Little Engines and their adventures on Sordor

1. Grandpuff - Thomas tells the engines the story of a little old engine named Duke, who was living a happy life with his friends Stuart and Falcon, til his line shut down and he was left behind and forgotten.
2. Sleeping Beauty - Thomas continues the story of Duke about how he was eventually found.
3. A Bad Day for Sir Handle - Upon arriving on his new home, Falcon(who is now known as Sir Handle) starts acting up badly.
4. Rusty Helps Peter Sam - Using the same idea he gave to James in 'Trust Thomas'(Season 3), Gordon suggested Sir Handle to use the 'Fake Sick' trick to get out of work. Unfortunately(Like last Time), he put Stuart(Now known as Peter Sam) in a bad situation with some trucks
5. Rusty to the Rescue - A little engine named Rusty wants to find a new engine to work on their railway and decides the best place to look is at the scrapyards where Douglas found Oliver from last season.
6. When the new engine Stepney come to help Thomas and his friends on their line, Thomas becomes jealous of the attention he's getting.

Definitely a 5 stars worth it!
