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!
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.
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.Read more ›
