Thomas' Magical Birthday Wishes is a British-American-Canadian computer-animated children's miniseries.

Why It's Not So Magical

  1. To get the elephant out of the room, the miniseries is very unrealistic, almost to All Engines Go levels, here are some of many ways, this series is unrealistic:
    • The bouncing is even more exaggerated and overused here than what it was in the "Big World Big Adventures" era.
    • Possibly the most obvious and prominent reason, is because of the birthday wishes and magic stuff, which just don't fit Thomas at all since it's supposed to be a realistic TV series.
    • There are times where Thomas goes off the rails and moves just fine without them.
    • The engines have no visible drivers or firemen!
  2. Almost all episodes in this series have Eric Branscum's boring writing, and it is very formulaic.
  3. Bad animation from Pixel Zoo that's comparable to Xing Xing Digital's work
    • The animation is also very lazy since there are no backgrounds.
  4. The Characters were flanderized and dumbed down from Series 17-24.
  5. Overall, it's an insult to Thomas and a awful way to celebrate the 75th anniversary of the franchise.

Really Useful Redeeming Qualities

  1. Very decent score from Chris Renshaw.
  2. Great voice acting from John Hasler, Rob Rackstraw, Yvonne Grundy and Rachael Miller
