  • Percy and the Trousers is the only story in Henry the Green Engine not narrated by Johnny Morris.
  • Johnny Morris says "Henry's Special Coal" instead of "Coal" as the title.


  • Emily is mentioned in "Engine Rollcall" but she is not a character in the Railway Series.
  • Michael Angelis sings "Silly old Gordon" out of tune.
  • In the 2008 release, when James whistles towards the end of "Leaves", the whistle sound used is Gordon's.
