Purposeful, Playful Stories – Age-appropriate themes brought to life in a comedic and playful way have always been at the heart of Thomas content. The series will continue to deliver meaningful life lessons. For Thomas, the "high road" is not always the easy choice, but it is making that choice that positions him as a role model for young viewers.

A Penchant for Physical Comedy – Making the most of 2D animation, the characters will be brought to life in ways never seen before. Engines can shake, move, and wiggle out of any wacky scenario, whether it is an avalanche or simply avoiding a family of ducks that suddenly appears up ahead. Audiences will see flips, flops, and sensational acrobatics on a regular basis in this new 2D world."
