Turns out it's just as good now as it was when we were teeny kiddos! Which, you know, depends on what you thought of it as a kid, I guess, but me, I loved it.
I actually laughed out loud (I LOL'ED????) at several points on the movie (which I re-watched with auracel last night), most notably, when they're trying to convince the vacuum to come with them on their trek across the city:
Toaster: We need someone to come along who's really...strong!
Lamp: And loud.
Blanket: And grumpy!
Radio: And oblivious to reality!
And this convinces the vacuum to go! Plus, the scary, creepy bits were just as scary and creepy (if not moreso) as I remember them. I have no idea why I had such a yen for scary, creepy things as a kid, but clearly I did. I watch lots of my childhood favorite movies, and most of them make me go, "Yeesh, how could I WATCH that as a small child?"
Today in my lj history:
Someone bought me my first chunk o' paid time evir! I still don't know who it was, although I'm pretty sure it was someone from H_E.
My first poll EVIR!!
Holy cow, I need to see this movie again. This remains the only time I've ever seen it! IT BEING NACHO LIBRE.
