James is my son's favorite engine. Most likely becasue they are both stubborn and bull-headed! Anyway, I strongly recommend this dvd to anyone who loves the Thomas series. As a parent who often watches the shows with my children, the James stories are really some of the most enjoyable. As I stated previously, James hates to follow directions and this usually gets him in trouble; however, James always suffers the consequences of his actions. There's some pretty good lessons taught in these stories for kids of all ages (even me!). The dvd versions are great. No more rewinding VHS tapes over and over! The Thomas Series dvds are one of the best babysitters any parent could ask for. Add to cart now.

Thomas has been with my family for almost a decade. We have every oringinal tape and most of the mixes. What I like about the Best of's is that you can watch a whole tape of episodes just about your favorie character. James is one of the most popular engines and it's no suprise this one was released. He has more videos named after him than any other engine besides Thomas. James is often naughty or rude and the other engines and Sir Topham Hat shpw him what it means to be a useful engine. He's often the most boastful engine and sometimes I prefer episodes without him. I think these are great episodes for James fans and you should definetly buy this one.

This video has the best James stories on it. Yep, all of your favorite James stories are on here like No Jokes For James, James Goes Buzz Buzz, James In A Mess, and Old Iron. The only James stories that I liked that isn't on here was James & the Trouble with trees(that is my favorite James stories, even one of my favorite stories). It's to bad the music video "James the Really Splended Engine" wasn't made sooner because that would have been a the icing on the cake to this already great video, but "Don't Judge A Book Be It's Cover" is a great music video.

Anyway, I'd recommend this video if you want to see James at his best=^_^=

If you want your child to LOVE Thomas the Tank Engine and his friends, buy him this video and others. My son was only mildly interested in his new Thomas train set until I bought him a couple of videos and naturally, now he loves all the characters and wants to own every single engine!... The best of James is by far his favorite video, he asks for it constantly. Even the songs are getting him to sing on his own, something he only recently started doing (he's just 3). I have to admit, the narrative and stories are enticing and charming, the trains come to life somehow, even in the stop-gap animation (or whatever it's called). I've heard the videos narrated by Ringo Starr, George Carlin (of all people, he's great!) and Alec Baldwin. My son has kept himself glued to the TV with these stories, and he's wiping me out with his wishes for more and more characters from the toy store. don't buy if you don't want to buy more trains because these videos will get your kids! They love em!

If there is ever a flash of red paint, you will find out it might belong to James, the shiny red engine. Now everyone can meet their friend again as he stars his very own Thomas video! Help James & Percy out of a sticky situation & see what happens when James gets stung by a swarm of bees! So make sure you have your ticket ready!

We have several Thomas videos and this is not our favorite -- James is just too ill-tempered and cranky to make this enjoyable. In nearly every story he's criticizing or making fun of other engines. He usually gets his comeuppance in the end, but overall it's just not a positive experience. There are plenty of other good Thomas videos to buy besides this one.

This video is devoted to the adventures of James, the engine with the shiny red paint. All of his adventures are included; from tricking Gordon so he could pull the express to having to be rescued by Edward, even though James thought of him as being "old iron". Sir Topham Hatt likes James because he is a multipurpose engine; he can pull coaches or freight. James manages to get himself into trouble on occasion, but he's still a very useful engine. The music on this tape is especially good, and the song "Don't Judge a Book by its Cover" gives a good moral message to children.
My son has grown to love all of the Thomas videos, and he likes this one very much. Although this tape is a little longer (about 50 minutes) than the others, he can still watch the whole thing in one sitting. Pick up this wonderful video and enjoy some quality time with your children.
