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 A SIMPLY CHARMING CHILDREN'S STORY January 25, 2005
Format:DVD
This was one of my son's favorite animated movies to watch when he was young. He's now 13 and when it was on TV recently, he sat down to watch it again with his little brother who is 2 1/2 years old. It's a delightful, sometimes sad, and a little scary, tale of several appliances who come to life and try to get home to their master, a young man named Rob.

It seems that the appliances have all been left behind in an old cottage and the cottage is soon to be sold. The five appliances: Radio (Jon Lovitz), Lampy (Tim Stack), Kirby the vacuum Cleaner (Thurl Ravenscroft, voice of Tony the Tiger) Blanky the electic blanket (Timothy Day) and the Toaster (Deanna Oliver. Phil Hartman does the voice of the Air conditioner at the cottage who tells the other appliances they are going to be left behind.

They tie a car battery to an office chair and plug in Kirby as he pulls the rest of the appliances like a wagon. Literally over hill, dale, and river, the comrades face a world of peril including "the collector" who takes apart old appliances and sells parts, a dangerous waterfall, and the climax at a junk yard.

A very cute little Movie NOT made by Disney although Hyperion pictures would eventually be acquired by Disney. The movie was based on a story by renowned sci-fi and Horror author Thomas M. Disch who gives us a modern day fable. The voice actors, particularly Lovitz and Ravenscroft are outstanding and the animation is quite good considering it was done in the 1980's when studios were not spending a great deal on quality animation.

This would be followed up by two sequels: The Brave Little Toaster Goes to Mars and The Brave Little Toaster to the rescue. Neither sequel managed to capture the charm of the original although most of the cast (minus Lovitz and Hartman) would return for both films.

A minor classic!

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)
