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

After Lampy is struck by lightning in order to get power for the appliances' battery, his bulb is broken and the area around the bulb is burnt along with his plug, which disappears after when he obtains a new bulb. The burn marks were actually washed off when the appliances fall into the rapids earlier. See more »
When I was a kid, I absolutely loved this movie. I watched it essentially every week. Now, of course, I watch it a lot less, but it's still a great movie. With some awesome voices (Phil Hartman, Jon Lovitz etc.) and some good humor for adults, it's excellent family fun. A movie that kids love, and then adults can stand to watch with little pain. If you have kids, then I really suggest this movie.
