I interrupt the pity party to make the following statement: Animated Thomas videos? Not in my house sir. Seriously, is this a sign of the apocalypse or what? The only thing that makes those 15 minute insufferable episodes bearable is the cleverness of their execution. Real trains! Still shots of wooden people! Actual landscape!

My plan is to never let Jamie know these abominations exist. Between the DVR and the million and one videos we own, he never watches commercials, so it shouldn’t be too hard. Feh.

Ok – also just realized this video has been out since 2000. So why did we just see a commercial of it last night?? Feh.

UPDATED: And, I don’ t know if this is the one we saw or not. Apparently they’re all listed as “animated” but MD and I saw a commerical for an actual CARTOON. With faces that actually MOVE. It’s blasphemy!

    The real trains are cooler! If real trains are cool, consider me Miles Davis. Plus I like riding on trains you don’t have to fight traffic! (much…)
