Il Trenino nel Pianeta Favola is an Italian children's film released in 1980 that was produced and distributed by URBS Film. It was adapted from an Italian television series that aired on RAI from 1978 to 1981 that was titled Il Trenino (which is also lost).

In 1985, Harmony Gold dubbed this movie into English under the name The Little Train and it was aired on ABC that year. The dub was released on home video in the UK as part of the "Kids Cartoon Collection" line (albeit with a breakbumper and scene missing from the film, the breakbumper however can be seen in the Italian video below) and again as a standard release by MasterVision. The dub was supposedly also released in the United States on VHS by J2 Communications according to a comment on the YouTube upload of the English dub, though it is unknown if the missing scene is included.

The English dub itself was dubbed into Italian and released onto two VHS tapes titled Il Trenino delle Favole.

The English dub was not available on the Internet until August 22nd, 2016, when YouTube user John uploaded the English dub to YouTube from the Kids Cartoon Collection release. While the first half of the Italian redub was uploaded to YouTube on April 22nd, 2017, the original 1980 version hasn't been found so far. A DVD of said version supposedly exists, though a copy of that has yet to surface.
