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

This film is considered by many to be the prototypical Pixar film. Many of Pixar's most important members, including Joe Ranft and John Lasseter, were involved with The Brave Little Toaster's production. It also contains tropes that have become common in Pixar films: objects with human-like qualities, a long journey that changes the characters, and dark adult themes hidden in the guise of a children's film. Even the famous code A113, which is seen in all of Pixar's films, appears as the Master's apartment number. See more »
When the appliances are about to leave, there is a shot of the front door with its knob on the left. When Kirby finally opens it, the knob switches sides. 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.
