Children's television shows are usually packed full of positive messages, life lessons and wise words to help youngsters understand the way of the world. These shows are intended to give kids a solid foundation for morality and teach correct behavior. While most of the time they're spot on, some times they stray far from the mark, making us question everything we teach our kids.
The 1984 television show, Thomas & Friends was no exception to that rule. Brightly colored trains captured the attention of kids everywhere and the story educated them with the help of voice-over narration.
Upon closer examination of the show, some lessons may be a bit darker than we originally remember.
You will probably remember this episode and totally look at it differently now than you did when you were a kid.
Appropriately titled, "The Sad Story of Henry", the third episode of Thomas & Friends' has us turning heads about what were taught as kids.
