Watching a lot of train videos lately- not my choice, but by the 2 year-old sitting on my lap- and as much as I like Alec Baldwin's Thomas narrations, I'll always try to hook Fletcher up with the old classic, Conjunction Junction. ...and all of its cohorts.

And speaking of conjunctions, here's Fritz Leiber's epic final sentence of Swords And Deviltry (1970):

Intense Thomas-time at our house too - with our soon-to-be-2 year old! Trying to get him hooked on the old Disney Silly Symphonies: http://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=Silly+Symphony&oq=Silly+Symphony&aq=f&aqi=g4&aql=&gs_sm=12&gs_upl=4577l4577l0l5735l1l1l0l0l0l0l90l90l1l1l0

(whoa sorry long link!)

Started with the Grasshopper and the Ants - so good!

Hi Bree
It's not easy to get them hooked on classics but when it happens it's great. And I don't mind Thomas at all, but somehow I feel Chuggington and Roary the Race Car are just around the corner. Ugh!
also, The Eames' Toccata for Toy Trains was an easy sell!:
