Narrator: There were nights when the winds of the Etherium, so inviting in their promise of flight and freedom, made one's spirit soar...(Cue epic Timeskip)
In this, Disney's incredibly well done Treasure Island adaption, the mutineering pirates are trying to get into the cabin using their flintlock lasers, when Long John Silver walks up, "Arrgh... You're taking all day about it!" He sticks his Cyborg hand into his cyborg leg, pulls out a REALLY BIG CANNON and blasts, nay, atomizes the door to kingdom come.
Any scene in Treasure Planet where Jim is on his solar surfboard. Pure, undiluted, Awesome, especially during the destruction of Treasure Planet.
Several scenes for Doctor Doppler. The scene where he and the Captain are held prisoner, though, takes the cake:
Doctor Doppler: All my life, l dreamed of an adventure like this. [sighs] I'm just sorry I couldn't have... been more helpful to you. Captain Amelia: Oh, don't be daft. You've been very helpful. Truly. Doctor Doppler: I feel like such a useless weakling... [hands slip out of the rope he was tied with] ...with abnormally thin wrists. [to the pirate guarding them while pretending to still be tied up] Excuse me, brutish pirate. Pirate: [belches] Doctor Doppler: Yes, you. I have a question. Is it that your body is too massive for your teeny-tiny head... or is it that your head is too teeny-tiny for your big, fat body? Pirate: [grabs Doppler] I pummel you good! Doctor Doppler: Yes, I'm sure you will, but before you do, I have one more question. [pulls out a gun and points it at pirate] Is this yours? Pirate:Uh...
Jim gets a couple of big ones. The first scene with him riding the solar surfer, mostly just because it looked so cool, making it a CMOA for the animation team as much as for the character. Definitely one of the best moments of the film. The other is, of course, his run to the portal on another surfer, which he had built out of a BOX OFSCRAPS only seconds before, especially the bit where he grinds against the canyon wall to reignite the engine.
The supernova/black hole scene is a CMOA for basically the entire crew of the Legacy (with the exception of Scroop), but especially for Doppler and Amelia.
"Pirates? On my ship? I'll see they all hang!" When you are voiced by Emma Thompson, of course you're awesome!
There's one for Silver as well. Most of the time he's kissing up to Captain Amelia, breaking out the Purple Prose and all. When Treasure Planet starts to fall apart and Jim needs their help, he drops the sweet talk flat.
Silver: Well you heard the lad! Get this blasted heap turned round!
The film boasts probably the most impressive blend of CGI and hand-drawn animation ever attempted. Highlights include Silver, whose mechanical parts are CGI while his organic ones are drawn, and B.E.N., who is the film's only CGI-only character. Both instances blend almost seamlessly with the hand-drawn material.
Any time Silver shows Scroop who's boss:
First time, when Scroop is threatening Jim, Silver, whose arm is now a vice, grabs the spider-psycho's free claw and nonchalantly eating a purp, he tells the creep:
"Mr. Scroop, you ever see what happens to a fresh purp, when you squeeze real hard?"
(crushes Scroops claw, causing him to drop Jim)
Second time, when Jim is hiding in the purp barrel, Scroop tries to undermine Silver's authority by inciting the mutiny early. The old cyborg, still angry about Mr. Arrow's death and Jim being blamed for it, grabs him by the neck and snarls:
"Disobey my orders again, like that stunt you pulled with Mr Arrow and so help me, you'll be joining him.
