Tribute to Frank Thomas and Ollie Johnston in the Incredibles
At the end of the Incredibles there are two old men marveling at the heroics of the Incredibles. "That's old school," says one. "Now, that's the way you do it," says the other. These two old men are Frank and Ollie's first appearance in a Pixar movie. Frank and Ollie provided the voices and it's the director's tribute to two of the Nine Old Men of Disney animation. Unfortunately, Frank passed away before he saw the finished product.

Here's a link to Frank and Ollie's official website:

Here's a frame that I found on the internet of Frank and Ollie in the Incredibles:



Another great piece of Disney trivia...

1. They were also featured in Brad Bird's other animated feature
"The Iron Giant"; they were the railway men.

Thanks to the link to their website. They were great guys. Frank will certainly be missed.
