Storytime with Thomas was a children's television series that aired on Fox Family in 1999 that was a spinoff to Shining Time Station, pretty much as an excuse to air season 5 on TV.
Each broadcast consisted of two episodes from seasons 1 to 5 of Thomas the Tank Engine & Friends with a short music video at the start and one episode of Magic Adventures of Mumfie in between. The show left the air in late 2001, when The Britt Allcroft Company changed its name to Gullane Entertainment which was acquired by HIT Entertainment in 2002.
George Carlin (Mr. Conductor) narrated Seasons 1, 2, 3 and 4, while Alec Baldwin (Mr. Conductor's brother, Mr. Conductor) narrated Season 5.
