I wouldn't really count "Shining Time Station" as a favorite show besides Thomas, since it's actually Thomas-related. But that's only my opinion. Anyways, here are some of my favorite shows (in no particular order):
- SpongeBob SquarePants - Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends - Atomic Betty - The Fairly OddParents - Drake & Josh - The Muppets Show - Sesame Street - Mermaid Melody Pichi Pichi Pitch - Brandy & Mr. Whiskers - Kim Possible - The Proud Family - My Life as a Teenage Robot - Totally Spies - Winx Club (especially Season 3) - Scooby Doo - Looney Tunes (especially the "Bugs Bunny and Yosemite Sam" cartoons) - Yogi Bear - Magilla Gorilla (I hadn't actually watched it, but I do know enough about it to think that it should be listed) - Robotboy - Dexter's Laboratory - The Powerpuff Girls - Hi Hi Puffy AmiYumi - Rugrats
Might as well add mine. Subject to be updated at any time;
Captain Scarlet (not sure if this is British or American) Two Ronnies Have I Got News for You? Red Dwarf Only Fools and Horses One Foot in the Grave TUGS (Pre-crap) Fireman Sam Willo the Wisp The Trap Door Fantom Cat (Pre-crap) Sooty
Family Guy Futurama (Pre-crap) The Simpsons Father of the Pride Spongebob Squarepants Recess (You can't help but laugh at the over-dramatics) Pucca (See above, except that in Pucca, the over-dramatics are intended to be humourous) Teen Titans
Digimon (Bar Frontier, I'm going with the stereotypical fashion and say Frontier's crap, I especially love Savers) OBAN Star Racers (Say what you like, you KNOW it's miles ahead of the rest of Jetix' garbage) Shaman King Elemental Gelade Samurai Pizza Cats/Kyatto Ninden Teyandee Outlaw Star Beyblade Tenchi (Bar Tokyo, Shoujo Club and GXP, haven't watched them) Dragonball Z Kimba the White Lion
The Lion King Trilogy (yes, I like Simba's Pride, shoot me) Bagi: the Monster of Mighty Nature Sonic the Hedgehog: the Movie (THIS is how Sonic cartoons should be made) Akira Ghost in the Shell Stewie Griffin: the Untold Story Spirited Away The Cat Returns My Neighbour Totoro Mrs. Doubtfire (which is odd, considering that tranvestites are one of my phobias) All Digimon Movies (Barring the Frontier movie, 'Revival of the Ancient Digimon') Carry On, Doctor! Two Brothers (the one with the tigers) Cowboy Bebop: The Movie The Secret of Nimh (just the first one) Rover Dangerfield (I dunno why) Pokemon Movie 8: Lucario and the Mystery of Mew
... And that's it...

Right, here goes... random order, with my reasons... ARE YOU BEING SERVED? and HI DE HI, for being THE campest shows of the 70's, and having some great characters and catchphrases (and I am unanimous in that!) THE GOOD LIFE, because Margo Leadbetter reminds me of my mother... (sorry Mum!) THE BILL, for being around all my life, always there when you want it, and also for those strappin' cops in uniform... (goes to lay down in darkened room...) WIND IN THE WILLOWS (Cosgrove Hall) for being so lovely to watch, with great animation and wonderful voice-overs OH, DOCTOR BEECHING! for being filmed on the Severn Valley Railway THE GOLDEN GIRLS, because in the space of half and hour I can be as wise as Sophia, sarky as Dorothy, dumb as Rose, and devastatingly gorgeous as Blanche... THE BILL, for those policemen... sorry, did I do that one..?! DaisyFan x
PercyFan1998: I think for me the issue is one of inconsistency. They took down the restored versions that have the highest quality image but will leave the lower-quality uploads all over the place.
May 7, 2021 0:37:55 GMT
zeldatheswordsm: Except that if you put it that way, it is consistent: They're specifically targeting the higher-picture-quality restored versions. Because gee, what's up on the streaming services and for sale on new-pressed disks? The restored versions
May 7, 2021 1:07:23 GMT
zeldatheswordsm: They're trying to force you to head to the paid options if you want to get the good picture quality.
May 7, 2021 1:09:31 GMT
zeldatheswordsm: Of course, in some ways the joke's on them because a lot of those restorations have worse editing and/or use inferior takes compared to the broadcast/VHS versions.

zeldatheswordsm: IMO Mattel would profit a lot more if they slashed the merch licensing fees. They were damagingly high even by the time of buyout, and have gotten worse since. And the bloated price tags have been definitely hurting sales from what I've seen.
May 7, 2021 1:16:28 GMT
zeldatheswordsm: Sales of a lot of the Bachmann Thomas rolling stock seemed to plummet as the prices jacked up based on the discontinuations (And I suspect the same hit the Hornby range even worse). And the Wooden Railway range had vanished from non-TRU bigbox stores (tbc)
May 7, 2021 1:21:53 GMT
zeldatheswordsm: in my area by 2015, and its shelf presence had been shrinking leading up to then. Thomas' shelf presence in general seems to have diminished a fair bit, and I imagine this is the cause. HiT and Mattel failing at distribution of the show can't have helped
May 7, 2021 1:24:55 GMT
toadthegwrbrakevan: HiT actually distributed the show very well in my opinion, good merchandise, Thomas was definitely more popular and well-to-do during the Miller era than during BWBA or today. But I agree for everything else, I'm curious about what you say about TWR,
May 7, 2021 2:53:36 GMT
toadthegwrbrakevan: growing up, the bigbox store never sold TWR, I could only get it at Barnes & Noble or Toys'R'Us, it was too expensive for Walmart or Target, that was Trackmaster territory.
May 7, 2021 2:54:29 GMT
zeldatheswordsm: For a while, Target and Mall Wart actually did stock it and decently. At least where I am. But that was in decline. Probably didn't help that Thomas-size engines were around $15
May 7, 2021 4:35:16 GMT
zeldatheswordsm: And I mean that HiT did a poor job distributing the show itself - the actual episodes. They got complacent about seeking alternatives to PBSKids even as viewing there (and govt. support) slipped into decline - and Mattel continued this complacency.

LNERandBR: Well, personally I think it's time to draw a line under all that and concentrate on better things. Speaking of, we have a new ERS volume for you all Check out who's returning: sodorislandforums.com/post/388698/thread
May 7, 2021 11:04:07 GMT
harperman: I Have read up to i think 133 out of 376 volumes
May 7, 2021 11:58:46 GMT
alexander876: Hey, Harperman, what did you think of Last of the Crewe Engines?
May 7, 2021 15:39:19 GMT
harperman: I Thought it a very good ERS Volume
May 7, 2021 15:45:56 GMT
harperman: I Am reading the entire ERS Library to gain a better understanding of it and its universe before attempting to try my hand at becoming an ERS Writer myself : D
