The Brave Little Toaster

Dir: Jerry Rees
Voice: Deanna Oliver, Jon Lovitz, Tim Stack, Phil Hartman

[8] Cutesy cartoon feature, in which a group of household appliances embark on a quest to find their master. The animation is simple but really quite effective, managing to give inanimate objects more personality than certain actors I could name, making the idea of a desk-lamp having a flashback plausible enough. Despite possibly religious subtexts, about the appliance which died in order to save us, and did rise again, it rarely descends into schmaltz. Be warned : the musical numbers totally overload the soundtrack.
