Thomas the Tank Engine is originally from England - why have the distributors found it necessary to re-narrate the stories with an American accent? They have also changed some of the characters 'The Fat Controller' is now 'Mr Top n Hat' or something to that effect. They are trying to be politically correct but they still include phrases such as 'shut up' and some of the characters are unpleasant, pushy and even nasty. Not suitable for my toddler, very disappointed. Also irritating in that you can't skip through the start, you are forced to watch the grating intro every time you watch! I say stick to Bob the Builder, The Wiggles, Hi 5 or the Magic School Bus - much more wholesome.
The previous reviewer is complaining too much :) The accents (whether read British or in American English) are fine. Every mother I know, as well as myself, adore Thomas and the wonderful lessons and songs. Buy and enjoy!
