Thomas the Tank Engine & Friends is a British children's television series that aired across 24 series from 1984 to 2021.
Before Season 4 of Thomas the Tank Engine and Friends premiered, a VHS tape called Rock 'n' Roll and Other Stories was released. It featured eight stories from the season, including "Granpuff", "A Bad Day for Sir Handel", and the titular "Rock 'n' Roll". Some differences between them and the officially released versions include some music and sound effects missing in scenes and different takes of Michael Angelis' lines being used.
While the tape itself is somewhat hard to find, YouTuber Tommy Sapphire had uploaded the tape's contents originally, and it has since been reuploaded, making the episodes readily viewable. However, the video was taken down. The tape has since been reuploaded on Dailymotion.
