Whale of a Tale and Other Sodor Adventures is a UK/US/AUS DVD. It contains five episodes from the nineteenth series. The UK/AUS DVD features an additional episode from the nineteenth series.

Description

Thomas and his friends have tall tales to tell. A rumour about Toby spreads across the island, as Henry believes he has the chickenpox. Thomas blames his blunders on an imaginary engine, and when Toad spots a stranded whale...it really is a whale of a tale!

Trivia

  • The Earl's Quiz segment on the US DVD was reused from Trouble on the Tracks, while the Mr. Perkins segments on the UK DVD are from The Thomas Way.
  • This DVD marked the last of a few things:
    • The last US DVD to date to have a exclusive to Walmart.
    • The last UK DVD to date to have reused segments from previous releases.
    • The last UK DVD to have Who's That Engine? segment until On the Go with Thomas.
  • Like the later DVD Thomas' Christmas Carol, the Series 13-18 intro, Engine Roll Call and credits made by Nitrogen Studios are used on the US release despite the episodes being from the nineteenth series.
  • On Who's That Engine? - Toby, Kerry Shale still voices Sir Topham Hatt.
  • This release is the only way Australian viewers are able to see Henry Spots Trouble, as ABC no longer airs the episode on TV for conveying an inadvertent anti-vaccination message.

Goofs

  • Steve D'Angelo and Terry Tompkins are credited for rearranging the theme song, but the Series 19 version of the theme song is not featured on the DVD.
  • The closed captioning is incorrect in certain scenes:
    • The Steamworks is referred to as "The steam works".
    • Stephen Hatt is named "Steven".
    • The Main Line is referred to as "The Mainland" at one point during Henry Spots Trouble.
    • At one point during Salty All At Sea, "and" is misspelt as "an".
