What IS a Minion? That was the question I started with when working on this theory. I wanted to REALLY understand these little guys, so I started searching the movies for information. Well Theorists, I found more that I expected buried in the Minions and Despicable Me movies. A LOT more. So much that I can definitely say that the Minions in the movies are NOT Minions. You'll have to watch to find out WHY!

In Despicable me 2, there were minions in front of the screen making jelly and playing around with fruit hats. But in the backround, there were 2 minions hitting eachother with hammers. One of them knocks out the other minion and starts panicking. The minion then starts to perform CPR and the minion that was knocked out is back.

Matpat why keep in check of them when you can launch them into space after all even though its not the most logical solution considering we'ed have to build THOUSANDS of spaceships it would work. Right?

So, in your Madagascar vid, you said that Madagascar is certainly no minions, and then you say Ollie saw minions for the first time in Christmas, and you said you were a new comer to the series, AKA , you blindly judged a movie

NGL I like Felonious and never found minions appealing. I wouldn't be here at all if this wasn't MattPat. The only thing primal about them is that I want to put them in a blender feet first so I can watch their reactions.

if minions arent minions but clone from minions, the minions ARE minions, because we as humans we are made from dna parts of other humans, so minions clones from other "original" minions, are actually minions

Well twins come frome the same cells they're essentially clones of each other. Yet we never refer to one of them as not being human. Same with the minions i guess you can say that they are not original minion but that doesnt change the fact that they are the same
