Saved You! is the tenth episode of the twelfth season.


Thomas is one of the engines who like to help others out. If they are broken down, he takes them to the works. He doesn't want any confusion and delay.

One day, Percy meets Thomas at Maithwaite. The Fat Controller is on board Percy. He orders Thomas to collect a fireman. He is a hero for saving Lady Hatt's cat. Thomas sets off to collect the fireman. Along the way, he finds his chance when he sees a water tower about to fall on Duck. Thomas orders Duck to move. Duck moves and the water tower crashes into bits. Thomas is pleased, but Duck is cross. He explains that Rocky was lowering the tower on his flatbed. Rocky had been hidden behind the tree. Thomas apologizes and continues on his journey.

It's not long until he comes across a fallen tree on the track. Worried about engines crashing into it, he backs up. He tells a signalman about it and so when Harvey chuffed by, he is sent on the other track. Satisfied, Thomas sets off, only to find Donald and Douglas behind the tree. They were waiting for Harvey to clear the tree. They are cross when Thomas admits his mistake. Thomas apologizes and puffs off once more.

Thomas soon finds Toby. Smoke and Steam billowed everywhere. Thomas is horrified; Toby has broken down on the main line! Hearing Gordon's whistle, he moves Toby to a siding. Gordon rushes by. Toby is cross, and tells Thomas that Gordon was bringing an engineer to fix him. Thomas knows he made another mistake. Now he's almost late. Thomas finds Percy and asks him to take the fireman instead. Percy is delighted. With Percy gone, Thomas goes to set things right. He collects the engineer to fix Toby, find Harvey and makes him move the tree, and puffs back to Tidmouth.

Suddenly, he sees Bertie and some children. Bertie explains that he's gotten stuck in the mud. Thomas decides to take the children to the medal ceremony. Once there, Lady Hatt nominates the fireman a hero, and the children declare Thomas their hero. Thomas was very happy to help.

  • The narrator says that deliveries are made on time "without confusion and delay," whereas he should say "without confusion or delay."
  • When Thomas pulls Toby off the mainline, Toby derails.
  • When Thomas reverses back to the points before rescuing Toby, in an aerial shot, a steam platform is visible.
  • In a photo of Thomas and Duck, some of Thomas' mechanism is seen.
  • In many scenes, the character's CGI faces are not positioned correctly.
  • When Bertie is stuck in the mud, his driver and his passengers are not portrayed in CGI.
