Thomas the Tank Engine: The Movie


Oh yeah, it's comin' atcha like a freight train (get it!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!) Thomas the Tank Engine: The Movie. Read this quote, and tell me how people can say things like this with a straight face:
"Thomas & Friends is a...successful brand that appeals to children...worldwide. Generations...have grown up with [the show] with its storytelling tradition, positive values, timeless lessons, and rich train history."

Seriously? "Rich train history?" Are you F-ing kidding me? I watched that show briefly as a child and didn't learn a freakin' thing about trains, other than the conductor was batsh*t insane. I can't believe the gall that these people have.

I'm not going to argue about the how ridiculous the rich train history comment was but don't hate on Ringo. The Conductor was awesome, man. He gave good advice, told stories, and could fit in your pocket.

I'm pretty sure George Carlin was the conductor when I was a kid. And those f*ckin puppets in the jukebox? Why doesn't anyone talk about the f*ckin puppets in the jukebox?!

Didn't they make a "Thomas" movie with Alec Baldwin as the Conductor in the 90's?

Why do I know this? It's a sad, sad story....
