2.0 out of 5 stars Great movie, very bad DVD October 23, 2007
By L.K.
Format:DVD
Oh boy, did I love this movie when I was little! I must've wasted half my childhood watching this thing. Yes, it's got some scenes which may scare some young kids, but plenty of other animated movies have scary scenes, too. I didn't get scared when I was watching this at the age of eight or nine. If your child is old enough to watch Bambi or the Lion King, he or she should have no problem with the Brave Little Toaster. Parents of very young children (i.e. four or five year olds) may want to preview the movie beforehand, though. For those who don't know, this 1987 movie is not actually a Disney film. It was made by the independent studio Hyperion, and Disney ended up buying the TV and home video rights.

I gave this two out of five stars because while the movie is excellent, the DVD itself is bad, bad, bad, bad, bad. This might be the very worst DVD release I've ever seen. The picture shakes left and right throughout the entire duration of the movie. Not to mention there's plenty of dirt and debris littering the picture. It's almost as if someone ran this movie on a projector, then recorded it with a camcorder. The problems are very noticeable, and very distracting. Disney should be ashamed of itself for releasing this DVD in such poor quality. This movie deserves more respect than that, especially considering that one of the writers of the Brave Little Toaster is the late, great Pixar storyman Joe Ranft. Don't buy this DVD, but instead, hunt down an old copy of the VHS. Show Disney that substandard releases such as this one will not be tolerated by us fans!

4.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining adaption of Tom Disch's story March 29, 2003
Format:VHS Tape
Entertaining, suspenseful and with a good moral, The Brave Little Toaster works on many different levels for children. It's well made and written. This actually isn't a Disney production but an independent production company. The production design and use of colors will captivate your child's attention. Additionally, the conflicts and some of the suspenseful situations mirror experiences that little ones have in their day to day experience.
My only complaint is that the sequels produced aren't up to the high quality of the first film. While the third film in the series (but second produced) The Brave Little Toaster Goes To Mars is very close in quality to the first film, the second film suffers from a lower budget and is missing the imaginative direction of the first film.
As to the viewer who mentioned that there were images inappropriate for younger children--honestly, my kids can't operate the pause button and never noticed the "image". It isn't nasty or subversive and I find it doesn't effect the overall quality of this fine children's film. The cliche about not being able to see the woods for the tree applies to children's movies as well. While all movies have something we may not like (and books or toys for that matter), it's the overall values communicated not a single image (and your interpretation of it) that makes or breaks a child's video.
The Brave Little Toaster doesn't have any hidden agendas and is perfect entertainment for little ones and adults can watch it with them to explain the story as it goes along if necessary.

1.0 out of 5 stars Great Movie, HORRIBLE DVD April 27, 2006
Format:DVD
It looks like someone handheld a VHS-C camcorder to the screening of a worn out film. I would honestly rather watch the VHS tape. Can you say motion sickness? I'm so disappointed...

4.0 out of 5 stars Sweet, fun story but has some scary parts. November 20, 1999
Format:VHS Tape
My 3 year old son and I both liked this movie. It has good animation and is entertaining for both young and old. However, it has a pretty scary junkyard scene where old cars get smashed by a crusher into scrap metal. The cars are singing songs about their lives before it happens which makes the scene even more disturbing. An ominous looking magnet chases the toaster and his friends, trying to get them in the crusher too. My son was literally trembling on my lap. Afterwards he was afraid of our living room ceiling fan, saying it was a magnet and was going to get him. Overall though, the movie was fun and it ends well. My son still talks about it and wants to see it again but I think we'll wait until he's a little older. I would recommend this movie for kids 4 and over or younger ones that are not easily scared.

3.0 out of 5 stars Needs a Proper Release May 26, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Unfortunately, due to the fact that Disney is only the distributor of this movie they've given it a very lackluster release. The VHS copy I had was actually better quality before it became warn down from frequent viewings. If you order the DVD expect cell dirt to be prevalent through the film and for the beginning to have the picture shaking quite badly. It steadies itself withing the first few minutes, and only pops up once in awhile after that, but it is still a large distraction. While the movie itself is a solid 4 out of 5, the picture issues are bad enough to deduct a star. Plus, and this may just annoy me, Kirby is pink on the cover for some reason.

Special features are also very disappointing. Instead of getting any neat behind the scenes info or anything interesting at all about this movie you're basically given a long commercial trying to get you to buy the other two films. Don't fall for it. They lack the intelligence and charm that this movie did, choosing instead to really pander to children instead of creating a masterpiece that all ages can enjoy.

It's funny how fast time passes, as this film is already 25 years old! It first made its appearance at various film festivals and actually should have won best film at the Sundance Film Festival, but it was decided to be too risky as they feared people wouldn't take the festival seriously anymore if an animated film won best prize. This tells you right there how wonderful this film is and to disregard any 1 star reviews.

Disney may have had the rights, but due to their minimal involvement, they decided not to release the film in theaters but instead on their television network and on VHS.

A classic that I enjoyed when I was growing up, now I am sharing it with my children. A tad outdated, but nonetheless still lots of entertainment value and morals.

Your best bet is to get yourself a multi-region player that will play DVDs from anywhere.

That's what I have (I live in Region 1, and own DVDs from Region 2 and Region 4)
