The Sad Story of Henry, retitled Come Out, Henry! in American releases, is the third episode of the first season of the series. It first aired in the US on the Shining Time Station episode Does It Bite? in 1989, re-aired on Mysterious Stranger in 1993 and on the Mr. Conductor's Thomas Tales episode Paint the Town Red in 1996. In this episode, Henry stops in a tunnel for fear that the rain will spoil his paint and gets bricked in.

PlotEdit

It was a very rainy day on Sodor and Henry the Green Engine is pulling some coaches full of passengers. He runs into a tunnel and stops, unwilling to go any further. Henry's driver and fireman argue with him but he refuses to come out, claiming that the rain would spoil his green paint with red stripes. The guard blows his whistle and waves his flag, but Henry instead blows steam at him. Just then, an important man arrives in another train. It is Sir Topham Hatt; better known as the Fat Controller, who decides that Henry will be pulled out of the tunnel. Attaching a rope to Henry, all the passengers try and pull him – except for the Fat Controller, citing that it is his doctor's orders – but Henry doesn't move. Moving to the other end of the tunnel, the passengers try to push Henry out (again, the Fat Controller doesn't help), but with the same results.

Thomas arrives to help and the passengers try telling Henry that the rain has stopped. Henry still refuses to move, believing that the rain will begin again soon, so Thomas tries to push Henry out, but even with another engine pushing, Henry remains in the tunnel. Soon, the Fat Controller admits defeat and tells Henry that he is going to get what he wanted. Soon, the rails are taken up and a brick wall is erected in front of Henry.

All Henry is able to do now, is watch the other engines pass through the other tunnel. Henry soon regrets his actions, as he sees Edward and Gordon run by. Edward always toots hello with his whistle, while Gordon always laughs saying it serves him right. Henry has no steam to answer them and the soot and dirt from the tunnel ruins his green paint with red stripes anyway. Henry is left in the tunnel cold, dirty, lonely, and very sad, wondering if he will ever be let out to pull trains again... but, as the narrator states, Henry deserved his punishment.

Fun FactsEdit

TriviaEdit

  • This episode is based on the story of the same name from the Railway Series book, The Three Railway Engines.
  • This is the first episode to take place in only one location throughout the entire story.
  • This story was originally adapted live for television in 1953.
  • A CGI recreation of the scene where Henry is bricked up in the tunnel was made for Blue Mountain Mystery and some parts of this episode were recreated for The Adventure Begins.
  • Differences between the UK and US narrations:
    • In the UK version, the Fat Controller says "...and leave you here for always and always and always." In the US versions, the punishment is only "until you're ready to come out of the tunnel."
    • In the UK version, the wall was built in front of Henry "so that he couldn't get out of the tunnel anymore." In the US versions, it was built "so that other engines wouldn't bump into him."
    • After mentioning soot and dirt in the tunnel spoiling Henry's paint towards the very end, the narrator says in the UK version, "He wondered if he would ever be allowed to pull trains again. But I think he deserved his punishment, don't you?" In the Ringo Starr US release, the narrator says, "How long do you think Henry will stay in the tunnel before he overcomes his fear of the rain and then decides to journey out again?" The word "then" is omitted in the George Carlin US release.
    • In the episode's first US airing, Starr's closing line was more fast paced, it would be retaken in later showings and video releases.
  • Recreated and additional scenes of this episode were produced in 1988 for the ladybird book, The Sad Story of Henry/Thomas's Train/Thomas and the Guard.

GoofsEdit

  • In the first scene, the ground sinks slightly.
  • In a few close-ups of Henry in the tunnel, the tracks in front of him have already been taken up.
  • In the first scene of Henry having stopped at the other end of the tunnel, the points in front of him appear to be misaligned from the connector track. They are properly connected in subsequent scenes, however.
  • In some shots, purple marker is visible on the Fat Controller's hand, such as when he says, "My doctor has forbidden me to pull."
  • When the passengers try to pull Henry out of the tunnel, almost all of them have Blu-Tack on their feet.
  • In one shot, grass appears in front of the tunnel.
  • At some stages, the level of the wall decreases and Henry changes position.
  • When the guard tries to get Henry out by blowing his whistle and waving his flags, the scene is played forwards and then backwards.
  • At first, the buffers of Henry's last coach are at their normal height. But when Thomas comes to push, the buffers have been lowered to accommodate Thomas' buffers. Also, in the close-up of Thomas buffering up to the coaches, his buffer housing is black instead of red and the detail of his buffer housing and lamp are different.
  • Since Henry was headed toward Knapford, Thomas would've had to come from Elsbridge or Wellsworth. Nobody knows what he was doing that far away from Knapford. His duties are around Knapford.
  • James appears briefly, but he wasn't introduced until Thomas and the Breakdown Train.
  • When Thomas is pushing Henry, his wheels inch forward. In the following scenes, Henry hasn't moved.
  • When the workmen are walling up the tunnel, the buffers have no track connected to them. But in close-ups, there is.
  • When James moves after bringing the Fat Controller, the edge of the set is visible. Also, the puffing noise can be heard before James starts to move.
  • When the workmen take away Henry's track, part of the track is already taken away.
  • In the close–up of Edward, his whistle is wonky.
  • James' first coach appears to be derailed as it wobbles when he arrives at the tunnel and again when he leaves.
  • When Thomas pushes Henry's train, the yellow lining around his cab window is bent.
