Overview

A fast-paced and funny twist on the Homeward Bound saga in which devoted pets traverse the wilderness in search of their owners, Brave Little Toaster is an animated family treat that tells the delightful story of a gang of household appliances who set off for the big city to find their young master after he thoughtlessly leaves them in his summer cabin. Along the way they must face many dangers and obstacles, including figuring out how to get juice in a wilderness containing no electrical outlets. The film is based on a children's tale by science-fiction author Thomas M. Disch and won a Parent's Choice Award.

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Donald Liebenson
The concept of a Brave Little Toaster and sundry fellow appliances having animated lives of their own, based on Thomas M. Disch's book, didn’t catch on the way the Toy Story movies have. But this 1987 feature remains a charmer. Modestly animated, The Brave Little Toaster charts the incredible journey of Toaster, a loquacious tube radio who gives a lot of static (ace work by Jon Lovitz), a desk lamp, a childlike electric blanket, and a vacuum cleaner (Thor Ravenscroft, who voiced Tony the Tiger and famously sang, "You're a Mean One, Mr. Grinch"). Seemingly deserted at a family's summer home, the appliances fear that it is "scrap metal time" and set off to the big city to find their beloved college-bound Master. The ever-optimistic Toaster rallies this bickering band through obstacles and close encounters with such menacing characters as the junk dealer -- who is eager to scavenge their parts. By the film’s junkyard climax, viewers may find themselves contemplating the blithe cruelty of planned obsolescence, thanks to these whimsical anthropomorphic characters. Or maybe just smiling.
All Movie Guide - Andrea LeVasseur
A delightful children's road movie reminiscent of The Incredible Journey, Disney's The Brave Little Toaster is an appropriately warm adventure tale. Using modern appliances as the protagonists, the story remains old-fashioned in its spirit even as it humorously depicts the clashes between nature and technology. The animation is simple and the story straightforward enough for the youngest of viewers, while adults can appreciate the unique characters and witty dialogue. Featuring the voices of Saturday Night Live veterans Jon Lovitz and Phil Hartman, the inventive personalities of the appliances and the constant movie references keep the story moving at a fast pace. In true Disney fashion, virtues such as friendship, cooperation, and resourcefulness are stressed, and the characters also face the despair of becoming obsolete in the high-tech world. Though The Brave Little Toaster found difficulty finding a distributor for its theatrical release, it remains one of the more charming classic quest stories.

I have loved this movie, ever since I was a child. It's a classic that most children nowadays haven't seen. I owned it on VHS back in the day, so it is a real treat to now be able to have my kids watch it with me!

The Brave Little Toaster is a timeless but not generally known Disney classic. Whereas movies likes Finding Nemo, Cars, etc. keep over-saturating the market with adult humored CGI; The Brave Little Toaster stands alone with an amazing cast of characters and an even better crew of voices to bring them to life. A must see!

My son is 3 1/2 and has loved vacuums since he was 18 months old. I've discovered that a lot of little boys follow the same path during this timeframe. The Brave Little Toaster (and it's sequels) have an animated vacuum (Kirby), as well as other machinery that talks. My son LOVES this movie right now, more than any other, and I'd highly recomend it to anyone who has a machinery/appliance oriented child!

I remember watching this movie as a child and nearly 20 years later this movie is still as good as it ever was. If you like movies that make you smile then you will love this movie. Its the original Finding Nemo concept.
