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

The address of the apartment building of Rob (The Master) and his mother in the movie is 2470 McBean Parkway. This is a tip of the hat to CalArts (24700 McBean Parkway), where director Jerry Rees studied animation. Their apartment number is A113, which is also a room number of a classroom used by animation students at CalArt, the Alma mater of John Lasseter. A113 also shows up in other Disney and Pixar films.

It's been a while since I've seen The Brave Little Toaster. Probably since I was under 10, so around 15+ years ago. It was always a favorite of mine and whenever I talk with people about favorite childhood flicks, The Brave Little Toaster is always brought up, whether by me or someone I'm with. So when I had the opportunity to re-watch it, I sprang to the chance. And not surprisingly it's still a fantastic movie.
The story of Toaster, Kirby (Vaccum), Lamp, Radio, Blanket and their journey to find their Master. Their Master was a little boy who used and cared for them. After years have passed with time and time again of disappointment the five friends travel the country-side and try to conquer amazing obstacles. Only their friendship, and the willingness to find their master is their only hope of making and surviving the arduous journey.
As I watched it, it was remarkable that I remembered almost every single scene as it played out. With social commentary (which I had no clue about back then), emotional scenes (the flower and it's reflection) and even scary as heck clowns (probably a big reason IT scared the heck outta me as well), the flick delivers an unbelievable amount of entertainment. And I haven't even talked about Phil Hartman, the songs, John Lovitz and the amazing humor.
Back when I was watching Secret of the NIMH, Transformers, He-Man, The Care Bears, Fraggle Rock etc. only a few do I always consistently mention as being timeless classics and without a doubt, The Brave Little Toaster is one of the best and one of my favorite children animations flicks of all time.
