    The original 1987 animated film based on Thomas Disch's book was a rather bizarre experience. It's clearly the precursor of such animated blockbusters as Toy Story and Cars, this time with home appliances in the lead roles, but also has a dark quality that doesn't seem to insure your favorite cartoon character won't be killed. You'll also wonder how some appliances talk and others are just objects, and how the film's heroes built such a strong bond with their "master" (and he with them). Somehow, it all works. Funny in places, tense in others, with a couple of good songs (and some forgettable ones) and an exciting finale. Definitely one where the kids will see one thing, and the adults another. Jon Lovitz and Phil Hartman do a couple voices, but don't expect them in the sequels. 4 years 2 months ago
