Thomas is a cunning bird who sponges on Hyppo, the good-natured hippopotamus. Although Thomas is a dependent, living in Hyppo's big mouth, he always acts lordly and tries to outsmart his simpleminded host. However, their basic friendship and cooperation endures despite their frequent quarrels. The two play a prime role in this comic series, short yet full of originality.

What Can I say, I shed manly tears as this reminded me of my well lived childhood. I remember Thomas oooo that very sly cunning bird trying to act very lordly and taking command over our well know and respected friend Hyppo. Furthermore I enjoyed their adventure and newly explored areas especially that one time when they found a coral under the sea and a pineapple which consisted off a substance which was made of sponge. However before my excitement lets me go off topic, Kabatotto was a very outstanding Anime a class of its own nothing stood a chance in competitiveness against it. read more

This anime was absolutely outstanding, im actually struggling to find a better anime out there that combines the emotional aspects of the topic and put it together with the short witty jokes is nothing short of outstanding, some may even dare say world class. My favorite character has always been Thomas and always will be till i die. He inspired to be the man i am today and made me chose my career path that read more
