"Thomas and the Missing Christmas Tree" is the second Christmas episode of Thomas & Friends, aired in the show's second season. Ringo Starr narrates it.
It's December 23, and the final preparations are being made for a carol party to be held at Tidmouth. Thomas is sent to collect the Christmas tree, but on the way back runs into a snowdrift again and is covered in an avalanche. Donald and Douglas go to the rescue and save Thomas and the precious cargo. The tree arrives on time, and everyone is delighted when the guest of honor - Father Christmas - arrives in Harold.
- Father Christmas seems to be a dressed up model of the Fat Controller.
- Stock footage from "Thomas, Terence and the Snow" is used, as is mirrored stock footage from "Thomas' Train".
- The episode was paired with "Woolly Bear" when it was first broadcast.
- This was the last episode to be narrated by Ringo Starr and produced by Robert D. Cardona.
