Henry and the Elephant is the nineteenth episode of the fourth season. It aired in the US on Mr. Conductor's Thomas Tales in 1996.

Plot

The big engines are happy to help when a circus comes to Sodor, but some days after the circus leaves Henry is asked to investigate a blockage in a tunnel. The "blockage" is revealed to be an elephant that escaped from the circus. The workmen give him cake and water and, when Henry unluckily lets off steam, the frightened elephant sprays water onto Henry. Gordon and James feel sorry for Henry but still tease him. Thomas tells Henry that he handled the situation rather well.
