- Childhood: Destroyed!
- July 21st, 2008
Thomas & Friends, celebrating its 65th Anniversary in 2010, has commenced pre-production on the first CGI
series (series 1300) in partnership with Nitrogen Studios, a Canadian-based production company who worked
on the latest series (Series 1200) of Thomas & Friends introducing CGI elements to its existing Live Action
format. The new CGI series has tested positively with audiences and broadcasters in key markets around the
world, and will continue to deliver heartwarming adventures and lessons of discovery, friendship and
cooperation. The new CGI series is making its broadcast debut in late 2009 on Five Milkshake! in the UK and
on PBS KIDS® in the US, as well as other selected territories (excludes Japan). For the first time, the faces of
Thomas and his engine friends, as well as Sir Topham Hatt, will move as a result of the CGI enhancement and offers a raft of opportunity for new, talking Thomas & Friends toys.
Goddamit HiT. Taking Thomas away from its home, and getting rid of the style which made it uniqe to make it look like every single children's show out there is just...GAH!
