* NoOSHACompliance: The junkyard. While it can be slightly forgiven since Rob stubbornly held onto the magnet which almost no human would ever do before it dropped him onto the conveyer belt, the fact that there were no safety measures in place nor anyone keeping on an eye on the belt to make sure something like ''crushing a human to death'' didn't occur raises some valid concerns.



* RageAgainstTheReflection: Toaster, after the waterfall incident, considering it because he panicked that the appliances went over the waterfall, not to mention lost their battery.

The film centers on five household appliances -- the eponymous Toaster, Lampy (a desk lamp), Kirby (a vacuum named for a vacumn company), Radio (a radio), and Blanky (an electric blanket) -- who live in a old cabin out in the woods. The appliances have been left behind by their Master, a young boy, and have been waiting for him to return for years. When the cabin is put up for sale, the appliances determine to go find the Master (who, unknown to them, is now a young man getting ready for college) by making a journey to the city.

** During the "Worthless" scene, set in a junk yard, [[spoiler:there's a huge magnet seeking out the toaster and crew, to throw them all into a compactor - essentially attempting to ''murder'' them as ''they run away from it and hide in fear for their lives''. Meanwhile, it actually ''is'' throwing cars into the compactor. The cars are singing a song about how helpless and worthless they feel. Some attempt to escape the magnet, which is pretty horrifying in itself, but even more disturbing is others ''convey that they want to die'' and fully understand the concept of death, even though they are objects.]]

* ShesAManInJapan: The German, Polish, Brazilian Portuguese (2nd version), Croatian, Russian TV and Czech VHS dubs made Lampy into a female. (In the 2nd Brazilian dub, she's a {{Tomboy}} and in the German dub she's a [[ProperLady Girly Girl]], with the Polish version fitting nicely in the middle). Blanky also counts, because 'blanket' is female in some countries.

** There's some subtle FridgeBrilliance here: the protagonists are all appliances that are timeless and have aged well (for example, a toaster is still perfectly useful as a toaster, no matter the time period). The "Cutting Edge" appliances, by contrast, are meant to represent the folly of consumerism, and will likely be rejected in favor of newer models much sooner than the protagonists.

* WritersCannotDoMath: In the 2nd movie, Wittgenstein said he was down there for 4,999,450,852,312 nanoseconds, or "since that awful day when transistors were invented." The thing is, the number he gives is only about 83 minutes, and considering that the internet's already invented, this really makes the gap between the two dates really doesn't feel like only an hour.
