Despite its innocuous-sounding premise, ''The Brave Little Toaster'' is infamously regarded as one of the darkest animated [[WhatDoYouMeanItsForKids family films]] of the 80s, as these examples can attest to.

** The yellow Packard Woody (the surfer van) looks salvagable...why is it in the junkyard? Look at the board strapped to it--there's a huge chunk ''bitten'' out of it, right where a person's head and right shoulder would be (while laying down and paddling, which is reportedly when most shark attacks on surfers happen). The previous owner may have died, which could explain what a 40s-era van is doing in a junkyard during a movie implied to take place in the early 80s; it languished for years and was simply forgotten about and discarded because no one cared enough about it.

* Borderlining on FridgeHorror as well; when one closely observes the movie after childhood, it will become frighteningly noticeable how many suicides/attempted suicides there are in it - [[spoiler:Kirby swallowing his cord; the Air Conditioner making himself blow out; Lampy almost killing himself via electrocution; the one green car willingly driving onto the rack heading for the crusher; the flower losing all will to live and shows strong implication to not survive long past its scene]]; and of course [[spoiler:Toaster [[HeroicSacrifice sacrificing himself to save his Master]]]].

** The Toaster's dream in general, which accentuates his fear of [[spoiler:shorting out and ''accidentally killing the kid'']].

* The appliances going into the woods as the sun sets. We hear animals sounds as they travel through. And startled by an owl flying by. Later when they decided to rest, the bushes suddenly shook, startling the appliances who hear a growl (either from an animal or the approaching storm).

** Notice how the rest of the scene is then tinted blood-red. Subtle, no, but damn if it doesn't make the whole thing more intense.

* This movie is packed full of it. These include the air conditioner's blow out (and his dead corpse sitting in the dark in the back of the room for the majority of the film afterward), Toaster's nightmare, the deeply unnerving and upsetting flower scene, the various Family Unfriendly Deaths, etc.

* "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nOeK0Ig-H9g It's a B-Movie]]". Menacing, deformed appliances, the little plaintive part in the middle ("There goes the sun"), and the spooky shadow puppets. Heck, there's even an EyeScream with the portable fan thing. I know, I know, DarkIsNotEvil...

* The song "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-UfsEj7AOGI Worthless]]" is packed full of NightmareFuel that would probably only apply to older people watching the film, since the catchy but fairly complex (for a kids' movie) lyrics are riddled with oblique hints of aging, death, and suicide. Seriously, try imagining humans singing that song and see where your mind takes you.
** Don't have to imagine it: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VoJy4FxqtEY There's a video for it]].

** And don't forget the one car who, after singing part of his verse about how his life has amounted to nothing, jumps onto the conveyor belt of his own volition. The people who wrote this must have been going through some seriously tough times.
*** When I realized, with the green Reservation truck's part, that a ''kid-targeted Disney movie'', about as directly as they could get away with doing so, depicted someone committing ''suicide''... yeah. Didn't exactly sleep easy that night.
**** Supposedly, the writers intended to show that car [[HeroicSacrifice sacrificing itself]] for another vehicle, but it ended up looking like a suicidal move.
* The titular toaster's [[spoiler:Heroic Sacrifice, and decidedly {{Family Unfriendly|Death}} DisneyDeath. Egads!]]
** The Toaster's [[spoiler:''graphic mutilation in the inner workings of the trash compactor'']]!
