Trivia

  • Due to the decline of overall views and sales, TOMY funded the entirety of this season, which lead to a 10-episode order; the shortest of the series' run. Following the cancellation of their Master Toy License agreement, continued declines (through both the Chuggington: Little Trainees shorts and the Jazwares toyline due to the less quality standard) lead to TOMY's partnership drawing to a close by May 2018 and the series to enter an abrupt, four-year hiatus.
  • It took more than six years for the UK to see the season released in its entirety. While the individual episodes all aired on CBeebies in May 2015, the UK dub of The Big Freeze was not released officially until January of 2021. Delivery Dash at the Docks finally received its UK premiere on CBeebies in November of 2021.
  • Trainee Camp is the only episode from this season to have received any sort of release on DVD in the UK. It was featured on one of the BBC's Children in Need compilations, titled "Pudsey and Friends" of which the episode is included.
    • Coincidently, the DVD was distributed by Abbey Home Media, whose contract with Ludorum had ended after the fourth season.
  • This is the first season to be released on Disney Junior in the US before it was released on CBeebies in the UK.
  • This season marks the only occurrence of several things:
    • The only season to feature Daley, Russ, Harry and Captain Charlie, all of whom are introduced in this season.
    • The only season where Action Chugger, Piper, and Zephie do not have a speaking role.
    • The only season where James Goode and Richard Ridings give Skipper Stu and Hamish American accents in the US dub.
    • The only season where neither Wilson, Brewster nor Koko appear in one episode.
    • The only season to have only two writers, Sarah Ball and Lorelei King, making this the season with the least amount writers.
  • This season marks the final occurrence of several things:
    • The last season to be produced completely by Ludorum.
    • The last season to feature most of the original US dub voices, before they were re-casted starting from Season 6 onwards.
    • The last appearances of Dunbar, Calley, Harrison, Chatsworth, Skylar, Decka, Olwin, Fletch, Tyne, Payce, Speedy, Irving and Howie.
    • The last season where Wilson, Brewster and Koko were voiced by Edward Sharpe, Toby Baddeley and Imogen Bailey in the UK dub, and Tony Terraciano, Miles Harvey and Brigid Harrington in the US dub; most likely due to them hitting puberty and being too old for the roles.
    • The last season to be aired before the show went under a five-year hiatus.
    • The last season to have music composed by Chris McHale, although he was still credited in Season 6 for the theme song.
    • The last season to be released under the original title of the show.
