|Thomas the Train|
In the next episode Henry, miserable in the tunnel, becomes willing to help again and is released. The New Yorker critic doesn’t mention that. In Toad Stands By bullying trains, otherwise known as the troublesome trucks, are taught a lesson by Oscar the locomotive, whom they had picked on. Oscar pulls the bullying trains behind him when they decide to cause trouble and not move. Oscar fights back by pulling very hard and the leader of the bullies, Scruffey, who is behind him bursts in half. The New Yorker quotes a commenter as writing: “I guess the lesson is that if someone is bullying you, kill them?” In the next story Scruffey is repaired and the troublesome trucks learn never to cause trouble for Oscar again. You are not told that by the author of The New Yorker article.
Ed. Just a wild guess mind you, but if Thomas creator Reverend Wilbert Audrey had donated a few $Million to the Obama and Clinton campaigns, CNN might have posted a far more favorable article! Then again, it would have taken a village to keep Thomas up and running, wouldn't it!
Yeah. And after the train was subsidized by taxpayers, at least half of that dough would have found its way to the Democrat Party and the Clinton Foundation.
