To begin with, Thomas & Friends (formerly known as Thomas the Tank Engine & Friends or just Thomas the Tank Engine until series 7; afterwards known as Thomas & Friends: Big World! Big Adventures!) was a children's television series that aired on the Disney Channel in the United Kingdom. Awdry and Britt Allcroft produced the British children's television programme, which aired on ITV on 9 October 1984 and ended its broadcast run on Channel 5 on 20 January 2021. It was created by the Reverend W. Awdry and Britt Allcroft and first shown on ITV on 9 October 1984. This animated series is based on the Railway Series, which was also written by the Reverend W. Awdry and later his son Christopher, and follows the adventures of Thomas, an anthropomorphised tank engine, on the fictional North Western Railway, which runs through the fictional island of Sodor. Thomas meets fellow engines Edward and Henry, Gordon and James, Percy and Toby, as well as several other anthropomorphized vehicles, all of whom work for the villainous Fat Controller. Most of the time, Thomas gets himself into trouble by taking on tasks that should be left to larger and more mature engines, but he never loses up on his dream of becoming a "Really Useful Engine".

On PBS in 1989, a spin-off series called Shining Time Station premiered, which was the first time the series was shown in the United States.

Another short-lived spinoff series, Tugs, was created in 1989 as a companion to the original series. Since Gullane Entertainment was bought by Mattel in July 2002, HIT Entertainment (a subsidiary of Mattel) has been in possession of the series' rights.

Thomas & Friends: All Engines Go, a 2D animated revival of the popular children's series, will air on Cartoon Network on September 13, 2021. The programme was first billed as a continuation of the previous series[5, but Mattel subsequently changed their minds and declared it a whole new show.
