Life in The Thomas Simpson Show

Thomas was one the many characters that was ordered by Francine to do spring cleaning, Thomas complained about it to Sunshine, but he finds a way to have fun while helping Thomas go through his stuff.


Thomas is a rather cheeky, but good hearted engine and generally behaves well, except when he is getting into mishap. He loves teasing the others, especially the bigger engines, such as Gordon and on occasion, brags about his superiority, but is always brought down to earth in due course. If Thomas has one major character flaw, it is that he is forgetful and slightly impatient. However, he is also optimistic and idealistic.

Although their friendship has been turbulent at times, Percy is generally portrayed as Thomas' best friend.
