The Fat Controller's Bedtime Story is a segment in the UK Thomas and Friends magazines. Since early 2012, bedtime stories have been published without titles. For the first few months, the section featured previously released stories, but starting on April 25, 2012, new stories were frequently featured, although repeats of stories are still published on occasion. The new stories usually focus on characters introduced in the CGI series. Each story features at least one image usually taken from a CGI episode. A new bedtime story was published in a Thomas Express magazine on New Year's Eve, 2014.
The stories are now being published in the US magazines with titles under the segment name Sir Topham Hatt's Bedtime Story.
