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

Was originally in development at Disney, with John Lasseter set to direct. Lasseter planned to use a combination of traditional hand-drawn animation and computer generated imagery for the characters, making it the first animated feature to attempt it. Executives, however, lost interest when they found that the film would not have been any less expensive with computer animation (they were only interested in CGI as a cost-cutting measure) and pulled the plug on the ambitious project. Lasseter was fired by Disney and then co-founded Pixar, while the rest of the team took the film outside and managed to produce it independently (without any computer animation). The completed film was eventually bought by Disney, shown on the Disney Channel and became a cult hit. As for the animators, many of them eventually returned to Disney to work on such films as Beauty and the Beast (1991) and The Nightmare Before Christmas (1993), as well as some of Pixar's early feature films.

What happened to amazing movies like The Brave Little Toaster? And I am not being sarcastic at all. This movie came out the year I was born and I've still not seen a better children's movie. And when I speak of good children's movies I don't mean things like Teletubbies which can mesmerize a two-year old; I mean movies that I can still watch today and adore. For example, I loved Finding Nemo, as well as Shrek (not Shrek 2) and a few others. But not since Toy Story have I really loved a kid's movie as much as BLT. Yes, I'm stealing the sandwich's abbreviation and giving it to the movie.
The thing about BLT that amazes me the most is just how adult it is. I mean, sure, it's not very adult to have a toaster, a vacuum, a lamp, a blanket, and a radio (JON LOVITZ!!) going on an adventure to find their old "Master," and it may even be considered a little childish to be caught up on your old things-- but forget about the overtones! What about that nightmare? I won't spoil anything but see this movie and remember that question: WHAT ABOUT THAT NIGHTMARE?! It is...intense.
Listen to the words of the songs (other than their little "going on an adventure" theme). The song all the cars sing is devastating; the broken appliances are creepy as hell and the modern ones are so mean! And that little fat guy! Oh man, you just have to see this movie for yourself. There is nothing quite as wonderful as the cuteness of Blanky, the hypocrisy of Toaster, the courage of Lampy, the pride of Kirby, and of course, the wit of the Radio, all rolled into one film-- plus songs, squirrels and frogs etc, a giant angry magnet, an awesome TV personality, and enough colors and fun to warrant a sugar high.
See this movie if there is any love inside of you.
