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

According to Jerry Rees, very few prints of the film were made for exhibition due limited funding. The print that Disney ultimately used for home video release is believed by Rees to be one that extensively toured the festival circuit, due to his recollection from each screening of noticing the picture frame "wobble" very early in the film. On the other hand, Prim Leisure's DVD in the UK (as well as Disney's 1991 laserdisc release) uses a fresh transfer from an international print. However, the film has yet to receive a High Definition transfer even 30 years later. See more »
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.

I have not watched this movie in over ten years but I still remember almost every scene with great accuracy. This movie entertained me till no end. It's hard to find one person who did not watch this movie as a child and even harder to find one that disliked it.
This is a wonderful movie.
I still get the song "Tooty Fruity" stuck in my head and think of the little toaster sliding down the rail. I hope to find my old copy and watch it again. Its movies like this one that make my childhood seem so fun and innocent.
This movie gets a ten out of ten for originality and for its obvious impact. If I were to name my favorite movie from my childhood this would be it.
