―The Giant Panda

Thomas in the Wild is the seventh episode of the twenty-second series.

PlotEdit

Thomas is taking a film crew to a nature reserve in China to make a film about giant pandas. He is excited by the prospect of seeing one in the wild, but he is not sure what they look like, so he slows down every time he thinks he sees one. But An An and Yin-Long tell him it is hard to find giant pandas in the Wild.
