A New Yorker article that takes an in-depth peek into the world of Thomas the Tank Engine has people questioning everything they thought they knew about the beloved children's stories.
"Wilbert Awdry, who created Thomas the Tank Engine, disliked change, venerated order, and craved the administration of punishment."— Rachel West (@rachel_is_here) September 29, 2017
The hilarious piece opens our eyes to the traumatic experiences and twisted behavior of the show's characters, in what was supposed to be a magical land where trains were happy and alive.
Not only that, looking it up on youtube, it appears that they just left Smudger and he was alone so long the forest grew around him. WTF— Macaluso (@Macaluso) September 28, 2017
