Mr. Conductor's Thomas Tales was an American spin-off series of Shining Time Station. The series aired on PBS from October 7, 1996 to November 11, 1996. The plotlines, secondary to the five stories told by George Carlin in each episode, focused solely on Mr. Conductor. The stories were a mix of those not shown in any Shining Time Station episode (most of them being the Thomas series' fourth season episodes), and the previous episodes (such as "Percy's Ghostly Trick"). A music video was also included at the end of each episode. All the episodes in this program were written by Sean Kelly.
