Storyline

Robbie, the master's baby, has been mysteriously beamed to Mars. It's up to our heroes plus a houseful of new friends - a fan, microwave, calculator, bag of cheddar-flavored popcorn and "the contraption in the junk drawer"- to reach for the stars and bring him safely home.

Alternate Versions

On the 1998 VHS release, during the end credits, Mark Elliott announces that a preview for The Brave Little Toaster to the Rescue is coming up right after the credits. Because of that, the end credits are at warp speed and the song "Floating" is shortened. However, on Disney Channel and Toon Disney broadcasts and the 2003 DVD release, the end credits are slower, allowing most of "Floating" to be featured. See more »

User Reviews

 
Rather bland, but like the first sequel, it's watchable
1 March 2011 | by TheLittleSongbirdSee all my reviews

I love the first Brave Little Toaster, and saw both its sequels The Brave Little Toaster to the Rescue and The Brave Little Toaster Goes to Mars. Both are rather bland in comparison, but both are watchable unlike some of the other animated sequels I've seen.

Its problems are actually similar to the first sequel's. It is too short, and the story is rather predictable and rushed despite the quite nice ending. The songs are on the forgettable and unnecessary side too, the one at the beginning especially is the epitome of sap. Also it is lacking the eerie yet compelling, touching quality the original has.

However, apart from some characters being re-designed and looking rather strange and off-model, the animation is not too bad. The backgrounds are decent enough as are the colours. The writing isn't as strong, but there are some humorous and poignant ones which I appreciated. The characters are still likable, and the voice actors do do very well, even the new-comers and replacements.

All in all, a bland sequel, but not a bad one. 5/10 Bethany Cox
