Kangaroo Christmas is the twentieth episode of the twenty-second series.
Thomas spends Christmas in Australia, and is disappointed that there is no snow because the weather is too hot. He cheers up when a little girl called Madeleine shows him her toy kangaroo. Whilst Madeleine is helping her father, a real kangaroo mistakes the toy kangaroo for her joey. Thomas tries to catch up with the kangaroo, but is unable to, much to his disappointment.
Thomas finds a joey near the track and asks Isla to help bring the mother kangaroo closer to the train. The mother kangaroo reunites with her joey, and Madeleine remarks that next year she will ask Santa Claus for a real kangaroo.
