Conversation with my Son

Jul 21 2011 Published by under Wackaloonacy

Son: Do we have The Brave Little Toaster on DVD?
Me: What a great movie! If we still have it, it's VHS.
Son: I just thought about it. Maybe it's on Netflix.
Checks Internet.
No, I can't stream it. Snort- they made two more: The Brave Little Toaster Returns and The Brave Little Toaster Goes to Mars.
Me: Sure you didn't miss The Brave Little Toaster Jumps the Shark?
Son: Sounds like it's time.

  • There are movies about motherfucken toasters? Who knew?

  • Markk says:

    Story by Thomas M. Disch, one of the great under-apprecieated authors. For kids and for adults. (Camp Concentration was as good as anything by Pynchon to me).

    It's been awhile, but the original Brave Little Toaster involved some retro appliances who wanted to go to college with their boy and be useful. It is an utterly delightful movie.

    I cannot speak for the Mars sequel. The thought makes me shudder.
