I am confused as to what is going on exactly, not all of the 2002 season has been released in any country yet but a new season has already been made only one year later and is being released in the UK already(?)
Anyway, about this DVD-
Thomas's Snowy Surprise Story David Mitton, Writer James Mason(Titled It's Only Snow in UK) Thomas gets into trouble with a Christmas Tree when his snow plough breakes down.
Jack Frost, Story David Mitton, Writer Paul Larson- The engines are convinced that Jack Frost is just a legend but when Percy stays out on a freezing night, they are in for a big surprise!
Toby Had A Little Lamb, Writer Jenny Mcdade. Toby is the only one who can help Farmer Mcall get through the snow with his new baby lambs.
Those first 3 are all brand new episodes then comes-
Snow, 1998. Rusty tells Thomas the story of Skarloey's adventures in the snow during an avalanche.
Thomas's Christmas Party, 1984. Thomas and friends help Mrs Kindly who is trapped in the snow and then have a special party to celebrate.
Thomas and The Missing Christmas tree, 1986. Thomas is on a mission to collect the Christmas tree but heavy snow leads to trouble, can Thomas make it home for the carrols?
It would be hard to better the previous Christmas song "Snow Song" but this new Christmas song "Winter Wonderland" is just as good and would be enjoyed by all.
So overall this DVD would bring a smile to any Thomas fan this Christmas, the new episodes are pretty good and although it is a bit annoying to get 3 repeats, they ae classic episodes and the song rounds it off nicely.
One last question: Are they ever going to put these episodes in order? On many DVDs, stories that relate to one another are clearly out of order. It would be nice if the video folks put a little more care into these things.
NOTE ADDED: Well, they ARE finally releasing Thomas adventures in order. At present, THOMAS & FRIENDS: THE EARLY YEARS is now available (though it really should be called "The Earliest Year" or "Year One" since I have read that is what is covered in this three-disc set). I hope there are more sets released.
Thomas' Snowy Surprise:
It's Christmas & Thomas & Toby have to deliver a Christmas tree to 1 of the villages on Thomas' branch line. However the snow is getting deeper & deeper, & when Thomas' snowplough breaks, will the special train get to the village on time?
The weather is getting colder so the Fat Controller asks James & Percy to make extra coal deliveries. Thomas warns them that they must be careful or else Jack Frost will get them. James thinks this is a load of nonsense, but Percy believes him. Percy makes his delivery but is trapped on an icy siding for the night. He develops icicles - & then James goes past, & thinks Percy is Jack Frost!
Toby Had A Little Lamb:
Snow has arrived on the Island of Sodor, but for Farmer McColl this has caused trouble. His lambs are trapped on the hills & only Toby can help him rescue them.
It's snowing on the Island of Sodor, & Thomas & Rusty are talking. Both are trapped at the tunnel & can't go any further until the workmen clear the snow away. Rusty tells Thomas about the time Skarloey was travelling through a ravine when an avalanche came down on him. When Rusty came to rescue Skarloey, he found Skarloey was able to laugh about the whole incident.Back in the present,Gordon comes past to hear the end of the story & reckons big engines would have done things differently. Indeed they do, as when Gordon gets covered by snow, he moans & complains until he is free!
Thomas' Christmas Party:
It's Christmas on the Island of Sodor, & after Edward reminds Thomas, Toby was good. & Mrs. Kyndley & Sir Topham Hatt use,It must be Christmas!Read more ›

The picture quality is horrible. Also the beginning doesn't include the traditional thomas beginning that my 2-year old enjoys. Wish I could return it!Published 17 months ago by michelle
Great for Thomas fans, like my son, for some wintertime stories. These are the older Thomas programs that use the models not the newer animated videos.Published 18 months ago by E. Clarke
