It's very surprising to me how much "Toy Story" took from this movie, and how much it improved upon it. This shows that there are no bad ideas, just poorly executed ones. And "The brave little toaster" is, in my opinion, poorly executed. The music numbers are forgettable and the story never made much sense to me. Why do these things love their master so much? How does a kid play with a vacuum cleaner?
Why do they carry a battery around when they apparently don't need to be plugged in? The characters aren't particularly memorable either. They're not awful (well, except for the radio, which is fucking annoying), but there's nothing especially remarkable about them. The animation is nice, and there are some genuinely creepy moments here and there, but that's about it. I liked it as a kid, but overall, I don't think it holds up very well.
