Storyline

A group of dated appliances that find themselves stranded in a summer home that their family had just sold, decide to, á la "The Incredible Journey", seek their young 8 year old "master". Children's film which on the surface is a frivolous fantasy, but with a dark subtext of abandonment, obsolescence, and loneliness. Written by Jonah Falcon <jonahnynla@mindspring.com>

Trivia

When Blanky imagines the Master arriving home, there is a brief shot of him floating down the stairs. Behind him on the wall are four paintings, each representing the functions of the other four appliances: a candle (Lampy), a radio (Radio), bread on a stick over a fire (Toaster), and a broom (Kirby).

Goofs

Unique & Different Movie.
28 January 2004 | by See all my reviews

It's funny to watch The Brave Little Toaster over the years and see how your tastes change. As a young boy I loved this movie. As a teenager I thought BLT was stupid and nonsensical. Now I'm in my twenties and have a different opinion about this movie. BLT has a strong subtext of time passing and becoming obsolete by the new generation. Then being abandoned and forgotten about. This movie is full of hidden meanings which I did not realize when I was young.

The first thing I noticed when I watched BLT was how simple the animation looked. You get kinda desensitized after watching the graphics on Toy Story & Finding Nemo that it takes a little getting used to the animation in BLT. Some scenes look now better than a flash movie you'd play on Quicktime. The animation is like a mixture of The Lion King and The Simpsons. The characters expressions, on the other hand, are as good as it gets. From the Radio pointing his antenna to Lampy using his cord like hand gestures is brilliant!

Story:9/10 Acting:9/10 Animation:7/10 Characters Expressions:10/10!
