Imagine if Your Toaster Went on a Journey of its Own!


"Hmmm. It's, um, let's see... it's like a warm, toasty feeling inside."

The film was a smash hit at the Sundance Film Festival, but failed to find a distributor. It was aired on the Disney Channel in 1987, then had appeared in the Park City Film Festival in 1988, before finally having a brief theatrical release at New York's Film Forum in June 1989, but still failed to find a distributor. It was actually shown in parts at various theaters as a serial from week to week, and in 1991, it was distributed on video. In October 2003, it finally had a DVD release alongside its two sequels.

I love those vacuums that have the balls that pop up. I use mine all the time! Just kidding.

I really love that Brave Yellow Electric Blanket. Maybe we should have a cute electric blanket week. Hm. That would be a short week.

I think toasters are wonderful instruments for domestic use but make rather strange heroes and heroines...So I appreciate the toaster but I don't welcome it as a object of fantasy...Now, vacuum cleaners are another matter...maybe because vacuuming is such a thankless taks I wish that they had a mind and a will of their own

There was a toaster in our family that belonged to my grandmother that had side-flaps that you pulled down, instead of slots. It was very sweet.
