“Beaten by an old steamer. Oh, the shame.”

The Chugger Championship is the tenth episode of the first season.


Vee tells the chuggers that the annual Chugger Championship race will be held on the next day. Koko thinks winning is the most important thing, causing a quarrel between her and Wilson. On the day of the race, Wilson plays a trick on Koko to get in front of her, but when he breaks down, Koko doesn't believe him. Wilson feels foolish that he tricked Koko, but when Emery is about to crash into him, Koko decides to help Wilson. Old Puffer Pete wins the race, but because he didn't run the whole track, Vee decides Koko's the winner: she gave up her lead to help a friend.


Rolling Stock






  • Going by production order, this is the sixteenth episode of the first season.
  • This episode marks the occurrence of a few of things:
    • The first appearance of Mtambo and Mr. Knot.
    • The first episode to not have a character's name in the title, and the only episode from the first season to do so.
    • The first of the two episodes where the front-left roundhouse cabins have the residing chuggers' pictures on them.
    • The only episode to be written by Claudia Silver.
  • Going by the European airing order, this is the fifteenth episode of the first season.
  • Some of the human models have been copied and pasted throughout the episode to show more people cheering on the chuggers.
  • Despite not appearing in the episode, Die-Cast's Chugger Championship series variations of Action Chugger and Speedy were made. This is likely due to the amount of characters they had available during 2010 when the sets came out.


  • Wilson's back bogie wheels are derailed during the scene where he's teasing Koko.
  • Wilson manages to blow a raspberry without the aid of a tongue.
  • In the shot of Vee saying, "Time to wake up Chuggington!", the Chuggington emblem is reversed.
  • Koko's back wheel trucks are missing in a few scenes throughout the episode.
