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

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.

I'm aching with joy.
8 November 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

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.
