Bertie and Harold spinoff series' considered in 2001

Bertie the Bus and Harold the Helicopter were suggested to have spinoff series' centered around them after the Millenium.

In an article found recently, The Telegraph divulged the pitches made by former Gullane chairman, William Harris.
The comments were witnessed in late March 2001 sometime after the release of Thomas and the Magic Railroad, which attributed to the proposed creation.

We want to expand some of Thomas's friends, particularly some of the off-track characters. Children would like to know what happens to Bertie when he goes back to his bus shed.

Thanks to TOPPictures for the alert.


  1. That would have been great! Perhaps this idea spiraled into "The Pack". Shame it never happened though :|

  2. Would've been a great series, Bertie's would've been enjoyable to see and so would Harold.
