Thomas and Michael - Chat Favourite Animations!

This post is a brief summary of Michael and Thomas' appearance in a recent TV programme 'The Greatest Animated Movies'

I have also uploaded some clips to my youtube channel but I am only a beginner so apologise that they are not very good but at least you get the idea! Here's the link

The first film they chat about is Pokemon of course!!!

TR: When the movie came out and in one of the first scenes Ash was fighting this other trainer and he sent out this Pokemon, it was one which no one had seen before so everybody lost their minds! So good to its fans it keeps pushing out little titbits for them!

MA: But then over the course of the film you realise that it's love that conquers all, like any good film really.
TR: It's a really lovely kind of tale really where he realises that all this destruction and nihilism is completely wrong and he's got to, you know, love his fellow men and Pokemon.
MA: And Pikachu is really cute.
TR: Yeah Pikachu is really cute.

TR: Every masterpiece is underrated in its time...right?? (to Michael).
MA: Yeah.
TR: It was a huge morality tale, like in the movie there is a line 'I see now it's not the circumstances of one's birth but what you do with the gift of life that determines who you are.' That wasn't a political leader or philosopher that said that...that was Mewtwo who said that!
MA: A cat!
TR: Yeah a big genetically modified cat!


They both sing a part from 'Let it Go'

Singing 'Let if Go'

MA: I remember on our first album they said 'are there any songs that you really want to go on the album?' and I remember saying 'Let it Go' from Frozen.

Michael talks Frozen!

TR: Whenever we sing that song we go 'have we got any Frozen fans?' and half of the people go 'yeah' and the other people go 'Ohhh'

Half the audience go 'Yeah!'

The other half go 'Ohhhh'

'The cold never bothered me anyway'


'It's about a normal family' 

'Is it?'

'Ok it's about a seemingly normal family!'

Michael's Edna Mode

'My God you've gotten fat!'

'More Edna Mode'

'Maybe we could have capes'

Thomas does Edna Mode!

'No capes!'

Talking about Chicken Run!

Talking about Chicken Run, Thomas loved the pile of chickens!


TR: While it's a children's movie it's very adult in the concepts that it takes on, a lot of it is about greed!
I know it sounds crazy but, it's great!

It sounds crazy!

TR: Over here in the West it's very fluid and very neat and there they are not afraid to make the character of Sen kind of clumsy and to make the animation reflect that!


MA: You almost want to go 'oh what's that about?' it sounds like fantasy, it almost gives you that impression, you're expecting magical things to happen!

Michael describes Fantasia
They both sing a tune from the movie!
TR: It's lovely that everything is choreographed in it, all of it is choreographed to the music it's just something really special to watch, especially knowing that it was made in 1940 when animation options were limited!

TR: I've never seen the ending! When I was a kid, there was one scene where this huge bat comes off the top of a mountain and it goes...(he does an impression of it!) and that scared the bejesus out of me when I was a kid...I had to turn the VHS off, I couldn't watch past that point so I've never seen the it good? (turns to Michael) Is it good?

The monster story!

Thomas' monster face!

'Is it good?'

'Is it good?'

Thomas doing another impression!!
