that's why they stuck him in there; bathtub, the forks, the smoke grabbing the kid away, the dream sequence has toaster's [quite rational] fear of 'shorting out' and killing his master/himself written all over it [he's electric]. kids might not quite catch all that, so they stuck the clown up in it so they'd be as scared as toaster without having to understand all of why toaster was scared.

This is one of my favorite movies. It's better than Toy Story 3, even if Toy Story 3 took some story elements from it, like the owner of the main characters going to college and they get stuck at a recycling center, etc.

None. Next is the Christmas Special, which won't be a review at all. And then in January I'm taking a break. But I've planned the reviews I'm doing all the way to April 2013, so no one should expect me to review a request at this point unless I'm already planning on doing it.

Hey Stephan, if you need ideas for the 2nd season, try watching "The Princess and the Goblin", it's on Youtube, (it makes "The Little Mermaid 2" look good)

Yes, people, I know it wasn't actually named after Kirby. It was a joke. I've gotten so many comments on that now I guess I didn't make that clear enough.

When it comes to depression factor, seriously, it's no worse than An American Tail. You say the writing's off, but that's because it's a lot more subtle than the usual kids film. I watched it all the time when I was little, went on a hiatus of it for a while because I thought it was depressing and freaky, then watched again years later and noticed stuff that I never caught before. When you say they drop a subject, they don't talk about it: they act on it. Example being after the depressing flower scene, you see Toaster starts being nicer to Blainkie. (I thought it was nice character developement on the writers part) After Toaster talks with Lampy about friendship, he sacrifices himself for the rest of them, which up to that point, he didn't really seem like the type to do that kind of thing. This is what I got out of it anyway...I could talk about this movie for hours, but I doubt there'd be enough space for it all. ^^;
P.S. Kirby was the name of a brand of vaccumes. (Plus there's also the fact that Kirby didn't exist until around '92)

This was a good one. I remember watching this on tv as a kid and being afraid of the clown. I must agree its a good film but a bit dark for a kids movie but still great review and poor nootrac I think he so sweet, its not nice to have him watch scary-ish movies

Stephan, you should have mentioned this; Kurby is voiced by Thurl Ravenscroft (Tony the Tiger, several voices for Disney rides and "You're a mean one Mr. Grinch).

@Stephan- I think he was referring to Nootrac's line at the end. And yeah, considering how annoyed a lot of people seem to be of seeing that show still on the air, he's got a point.

XD This review is hilarious
To me, this film is right up there with Great Mouse Detective as one of the most underrated films. I can see how some people can find it a little depressing, but hey, so was Toy Story 3 and Titanic. Both this movie and it's two sequels were staples of my childhood. The characters were fun, it was a good adventure movie (all three of them) and it was just a good movie, even if it could get a little freaky, though I don't remember ever being super scared by it. And I remember watching this when I was five! Also, while the characters do start off as jerks to one another, they become a sort of family, which is probably my favorite thing about this movie, the characters.
But I have to say, 'Brave Little Toaster to the Rescue' is probably my favorite of the three. If you can, please review the sequels (they aren't quite as 'depressing'.)

Good episode. I haven't seen this movie since I was a kid. Not that it's bad, just that I had no intention of rewatching it. I never found it too depressing even as a kid. But maybe one day, I'll take another look at it. Just not now. P.S. Y'all take a chill.

@Stephan- Yeah, I remember you saying that at the end. I don't know where Devon's coming from... okay, that's a lie, I totally do. His response is mainly coming from this mindset people generally tend to have that if you don't hail something as absolutely perfect, that means you must hate it with every fiber of your being and that you deserve to be shot. I've run into people like this a lot over the past.

I haven't seen this movie since I was a youngster, but I remember liking it. I don't remember ever getting overly depressed watching it, but watching these clips I can see why you'd think it is. Great job!

You also forgot to mention that this movie was based on a children's book by Thomas M. Disch, which Disney bought the rights to. When the initial version was scrapped, the rights went over to Hyperion Pictures, thus creating the version we see today. P.S. The voice of Kirby the vacuum was Thurl Ravenscroft, who also sang "You're a Mean One, Mr. Grinch" and voiced the original Tony the Tiger.

Stephan, you MONSTER! How can you sink so low? I don't find this depressing! If you ask me, the animation and character designs are good, the voice acting is superb, and the musical score by David Newman is spectacular, even for low-budget standards! Even Doug Walker (AKA the Nostalgia Critic) likes this underrated flick!

As I stated before, this is one of my favorite movies of all time. I love how dark it is for a family film. As for the characters not getting along too well at first, I like that idea. It allows them to develop a true connection at a believable rate. The death of the flower teaches Toaster to treat Blanky with more respect, so it was necessary. Another thing I like about it is that it's quiet, so it teaches kids to be patient. It doesn't try too hard to spell out its lessons like a lot of kid's movies do, and I admire it for that.
