The Brave Little Toaster comes from an odd time in Disney animation. Before the so-called Golden Era started with The Little Mermaid, this film was released telling the story of a toaster and a few other household appliances on a quest to find their lost master. Despite the child-friendly premise, somehow, the movie manages to include some serious nightmare fuel. If you weren’t scared of clowns, you will be:
And while not technically a musical, it does contain some catchy songs as well. The following seems out-of-place, but the actual song is very catchy and fun.
But, of course, it wouldn’t be complete without a scene combining nightmare fuel and music. So, I present the following scene, in which cars sing about their lives before they were thrown in the junkyard. And, of course, crushed and (implied) killed.
You know, for kids.

I asked my 26-year-old daughter if she remembers watching this movie; her response: “The clown scared the crap out of me. I was actually terrified of that movie.” I learned to read reviews and stop assuming that Disney animation was synonymous with appropriate for children.
Indeed. I might blog about it later, but I was always terrified of Home Alone 2. The part where the guy turned into a skeleton haunted my nightmares for years.
Interestingly, the clown never terrified me to the level of Home Alone. Funny how we all have different triggers.
