Animate is just a special kind of Manipulate:

In[3]:= Animate[x, {x, 0, 1}] // Head

Out[3]= Manipulate

So the solution to your problem is simple:  use Manipulate and put the Show 
inside of it.  You can use ControlType -> "Animator" to make sure the control 
looks the same as you would go from Animate.
