Walter Winchell, Jr: [first lines] Good morning, good morning, gooood morning! That was "A-Billion-And-One Strings" playing one of your all-time favorite tunes! At the top of the news this morning, there's monkey business in Utah. Oh, seriously, now. It seems that a band of renegade chimpanzees have kidnapped Pulitzer prize-winning poet Lester Charles and are demanding---
Kirby: What do you mean "what are we gonna do today"? The same thing we've done for the last 2,000 days: chores!
Radio: [repeated line] Listen to this.
Radio: Hang on to your hats, you devil dogs, because the master bebop blaster of all time is about to give you a soul injection!
Walter Winchell, Jr: Sorry, for that little interruption, folks. We return to our regularly scheduled program at this time.
Walter Winchell, Jr.: [Radio tries to pull his friends back out of the mud hole, but still gets dragged pulled down the slope] Well, that... uh... concludes our broadcast day; uh... week...! Actually, it concludes all future broadcasting of any sort!! [Radio gets dragged down into the mud hole] We'll sign off now with a... SUITABLE... TUNE!!! [Radio plays Al Jolson singing "Mammy" to send for help, while still getting dragged down into the mud hole]

VHS/DVD Released[edit]


Toaster, Lampy, Blanky and Radio: To the city of light!
Lampy: [singing] Master is a man with a plan I can understand!
Toaster: [singing] Master is a man of great reflection!
Radio: [singing] Master is a man who lays his hand across the land!
Blanky: [singing] Master is a man of our affection!

[Blanky cries after realizing the Master hasn't returned]
Kirby: Ooohhh! Cry, cry, weep, wail and sob! It's disgusting! Every time! I can't believe it! Every single... Ooohhh! Give me that stupid picture! [tries to vacuum the picture]
Blanky: No, no! [Toaster helps him]
Toaster: I just put it away!
Kirby: In the garbage! [Radio and Lampy help him]
Blanky: No, you can't!
Kirby: Wimp!
Toaster: LET GO!
Kirby: He's not coming back anyway!
Lampy: He might, the fact is there's not enough facts.
Radio: The fight breaks out in the peaceful mountainside cottage, shocked the world, and talked Geneva into a grinding halt.
Kirby: Let me have it!
Blanky: You can't!
[Kirby and Blanky both let go of the picture, sending it flying straight up high into the air, and then landed on the floor; the Master's portrait shatters into pieces]
Radio, Lampy, Blanky, Kirby, and Toaster: [in unison] GASP! Oh, no.
[Radio, Lampy, Blanky, Kirby, and Toaster looked down at the destroyed Master's portrait; suddenly, the Air Conditioner laughs and blows a gust of cold wind the gang's portrait of the Master, and then at the gang themselves after their portrait of the Master's been broken]
Air Conditioner: Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha!
Toaster: What are you laughing at?
Air Conditioner: Absolutely nothing. Nothing at all.
Lampy: I think he was laughing at us.
Air Conditioner: You know something? You're a real bright little lamp.
Lampy: Oh, thanks! [looks at Toaster's angry face and mimics it] Hey!
Air Conditioner: You guys really have an attachment for that kid, don't ya?
Blanky: Yes, he was our master.
Air Conditioner: Well, that's real nice and any day now, he might come romping back, huh? Just come whistling right back in through that door and everything'll be the same. Real peachy keen, like.
Blanky: Uh-huh.
Lampy: It's a possibility.
Toaster: Well, at least we try to be optimistic.
Air Conditioner: Optimistic?! Somebody untie the knot in this guy's cord!
Kirby: Why don't you just...shut off?!?
Air Conditioner: Hey, I'm real scared there, Kirby. What're you gonna do, suck me up to death?
Kirby: Hmph!
Air Conditioner: What is it with you guys, anyway? You act like you just came off the assembly line! Now get this through your chrome: [blows a gust of cold wind at the appliances] we've been dumped! Abandoned!
Blanky: But he loved us.
Radio: That's right.
Air Conditioner: So what? He's a kid. He has a family. They move away, he moves away. It's a package deal.
Toaster: But maybe they're all--
Air Conditioner: He's not coming back, pure and simple!
Kirby: Oh, yeah?! Did you talk to him recently or something?! They could drive up any second!
Blanky: [to Kirby] You really think so?
Kirby: I'm not talking to you.
Air Conditioner: The whole bunch of you gotta have a combined wattage of five, or maybe less. It's been years. It's scrap metal time.
Toaster: Well, you can do what you like. We're not gonna give up hope.
Air Conditioner: That's real touching, Toaster. You're gonna get me bawling like a baby anytime now.
Toaster: I think you're jealous!
Air Conditioner: Sure, I'm jealous of a bunch of dimwits.
Lampy: [turns on his light bulb] "Dim"?!?
Toaster: Yeah, because the master never played with you.
Kirby: 'Cause you're stuck in a wall!
Air Conditioner: Brrrr!
[enraged, Air Conditioner blows a huge gust of cold wind at the appliances]
Air Conditioner: So... It's back to that stupid static again. You think I don't know what's going on in here? I know what goes on in this cottage. It's a conspiracy. And every one of you low-watts is in on it. Just 'cause you can move around, you think you're better than I am. I'M NOT AN INVALID! I WAS DESIGNED TO STICK IN A WALL!! I LIKE BEING STUCK IN THIS STUPID WALL!!! I can't help it if the kid was too short to reach my dials!
Toaster: We didn't mean it! REALLY!
Air Conditioner: [bellowing] IT'S MY FUNCTION!!!!! [he begins glowing in redshift and then bright burst orange and sparks fly out of his mouth and on the appliances providing cover for themselves from the sparks]
Toaster: No, wait! WAIT!
[Air Conditioner spits out a giant gust of hot wind at all the appliances; they begin to run as Air Conditioner overheats]
Toaster: YANK YOUR PLUGS! [Blanky, Radio and Lampy pull out their plugs from two outlets and begin to take cover]
Kirby: THE FUSE!
[Air Conditioner continues to rage until he finally explodes; Toaster and Lampy carefully peek from behind the stairs to see Air Conditioner's blown up remains]
Blanky: Poor Air Conditioner.
Toaster: I didn't know he'd take it so hard.
Kirby: Well, he was a jerk, anyway.

Lampy: Hey, come over here. I'm gonna...
Radio: Why, do you dare to cross foils with the greatest Saxon swordsman in the land? Haven't you the slightest idea who you're dealing with?
Lampy: Precisely - a total idiot!
Radio: If you sabre wags as loosely as your Norman tongue, you'll be run through in an instant. Defend yourself, Sir Lampy of Locksley!
[Radio continually whacks Lampy with his antenna, Blanky falls on them]
Radio: A blow for Richard! A blow for Marian! A blow for Mario, the garbage man! And for Carl, and all the boys at the delicatessen! And here's one for the guys on 5th Street! Hey! No!
Kirby: [Go get the blanket stuck in your sucker.] Oh, whoa! Oh no, what!
Lampy: [This made the battle finally stop.] Hey, what's going on? What's going on? Who turned on the lights?

Kirby: The battery's gone dead!
Radio: We're trapped like rats! Small little rats with no hair and one leg!
Toaster: [frantic] BLANKY! BLANKY?!?
Kirby: BLANKET?!? Blanket! Where are you, you little wimp?!?

Blanky: Wake up, wake up. Kirby!
Toaster: You're all right!
Toaster, Lampy, Radio, Blanky: (cheering)
Kirby: [gutteral growl] Lay off, just lay off!
Toaster: What's the matter?
Lampy: We were worried about you.
Radio: You gave us a real scare, pal.
Kirby: Well, there's nothing wrong with me, pal, so just BACK OFF!!!
Blanky: Don't be angry!
Kirby:: Just keep your antennas and knobs and wires and rivets off my chrome! Who needs you guys, anyway? Gotta drag you around all the time, bunch of dead weight! I'd be better off without you!
Blanky: But, Kirby!
Kirby: Especially you, you little rag!

Radio: Damn thee, thou cursed whale! From the pits of hell, I... [pokes Kirby's bags] stab at thee!
Kirby: Climb on, you idiot!
Radio: Oh, it's you!

[the appliances stop at a clearing in a bramble patch]
Lampy: Hey, everybody! Look! A clearing!
Kirby: Great! Let's spread out the blanket and have a picnic!
Blanky: But I'm full of stickers!
Kirby: Well, my bags are full of thistles and sticks and who knows what else! Whose idea was it to come this way anyway?
Radio: Why it was the lamp, I tell you!
Lampy: Oh, yeah?! Who's supposed to be the big-shot navigator around here?! Mr. Loudmouth! Mr. Big... Loudmouth!
Kirby: Yeah!
Toaster: Where are we, anyway?
Radio: Now, look, just give me a little second and... [notices a small pebble] Oh, listen to this!
Walter Winchell, Jr.: It's the top of the ninth, the bases are all loaded, and Peewee races up the plate. Here's the pitch... [Radio kicks the pebble in the air] and he connects! [hits the pebble with his antenna, which bounces off Toaster, Kirby, and Lampy] Oh, it's a triple play! [Kirby and Lampy angrily swarm around Radio]
Toaster: Knock it off, you guys! We should all settle down and try to get some sleep.

Radio: [draws a dirt circle around him] This is my sleeping space, see? And nobody crosses this line!
Lampy: Yeah, well you better not wake us up at 6:00 as usual!
Kirby: What are you complaining about? You didn't do any work today.
Radio: Yeah!

[the appliances stop at a clearing in a dark forest]
Blanky: Do we have to stop here?
Toaster: Only for a while.
Radio: Just long enough to lose our minds! We'll be cannibals in a few days, I've seen it happen!
Kirby: And you'd be the first to go, dial face.
Lampy: Hey, fellas! We can stay in here! Look! [turns on his light to reveal a scary face on a tree; the appliances scream and hide in the bushes] What's the matter?
Radio: Eaten alive, the poor sap! [Lampy turns around to the scary face, screams, and joins the others in the bushes] Oh, I thought you were a goner.
Lampy: Ah, you wish!
Toaster: You know, guys, we're gonna need some kind of shelter.
Kirby: Yeah, shelter from the likes of them.
[Radio is making boxer-style threats at Kirby while Lampy blows raspberries at him]
Radio: Come on over here and say that, chrome-dome!
Kirby: What?!
Radio: Oh, I'm sorry! I meant to say "vacuous vacuum"!
[Kirby grumbles angrily]
Walter Winchell, Jr.: Alright, ladies and gentlemen. Let's get ready to rumble. In the blue corner, undefeated champion Rocko "the Radio" Ratuno. DING! Oh, and there's the bell! And they come together like black in a bowling ball!
[Radio and Kirby are about to fight but Toaster comes between them]
Lampy: Hey! Look!
[everyone sees that Blanky has made himself into a tent]

Toaster: Blanky! Blanky, where are you?! [slowly] BLANKY?! [voice cracks]
Lampy: Come on, Blanky! Speak up for Pete's sake! [coughs with zapper]
Toaster: No, no, just relax. You've done enough. We'll look for him.
Lampy: Means I am feeling burned out!
Radio: Listen to this.
Walter Winchell, Jr.: A lamp was awarded a Purple Heart... for being wounded in the line of duty. Lamps across the nation were switched off... for a moment of silence in respect for his bravery.

Mish-mash: Hey, look at me! I mean, really! Barf, barf, barf! I'm a can opener, lamp, and a shaver! Oh, ho ho ho! God! I'm a mish-mash!

[the appliance's make it to Rob's apartment]
Lampy: A113. This is it!
Toaster: Go ahead.
[Lampy knocks the door and the appliances freeze; nothing happens]
Blanky: He's not home.
Toaster: We'll have to wait.
Radio: So, let's wait inside! Relax!
Lampy: But it's locked.
Radio: Luckily, my war-training included inter-appliance codes. I'll simply run into this inter-appliance knock, and we'll be welcomed by the native machinery. Stand aside, my meager companion! [He begins to knock the door and then rapidly taps the heads of Toaster, Lampy and Blanky; the door opens and Plugsy comes out] Hiya, pal.
Plugsy: [gasps, then dashes back inside and the door slams] It's them. [He and the other modern appliances whisper inaudibly. Them, the door opens again and he comes back out calmy] How do yous do? Tarry not upon our doorstop. Please, feel free to enter. All of yous.

Lampy: Boy, he sure has grown!
Radio: Look at him! What a heartbreaker!
Toaster: He graduated too!
Kirby: Of course. He knows how to work hard.
Blanky: He's all big now. I hope he still needs us.
Black and White T.V.: Still needs you? That's the silliest thing I've ever heard!
Radio: Why, if it isn't Ol' Rabbit Ears!
Black and White TV: Why, if it isn't Ol' Loudmouth!
Blanky: Hi, T.V.!
Lampy: How are you doing?
Black and White T.V.: Oh, I've got a few more seasons left.
Toaster: The cabin hasn't been the same since they took you away.
Kirby: Yeah, it wasn't as noisy.
Black and White T.V.: Well, I see you haven't changed.
Radio: Kind of gives you a sense of security. Doesn't it?
Blanky: Where's the Master?
Black and White T.V.: Didn't anybody tell you? Boy, is he gonna be surprised when he gets back. He just left a little while ago to drive up to the co-- [Plugsy sneaks up behind him and changes his channel to Spanish news network; Radio and Lampy find Plugsy]
Lampy: Hey!
Radio: What's the idea?!?
Plugsy: Oh, many pardons. Was you watching that channel?

Zeke: Excuse me. The missus loved the blender motor. She was wondering if you got some radio tubes, too.
Elmo St. Peters: Radio Tubes. Why sure, I got a whole shipped of radio tubes in from this morning.
Radio: You gotta help me, you gotta hide me. I'll do anything. Bread. I can get you bread. Mountains of hot crossed buns.
Toaster: Come on. Pull yourself together. [They all hide.]
Elmo St. Peters: Now what did i do with that radio? I could've sworn I left it right here in this very, very spot. What did it do? Just get up and walk away? I really should drink more coffee. [Walks past radio. Then sees him.] Ah-hah! There you are. Ha, ha, ha. I found ya.
[Grabs the other appliances] Gotta move you guys out of the way. [Hums and starts to do the operation.]
Toaster: K-Kirby, what should we do?
Kirby: I-I-I don't know.
Lampy: Hey! I got an idea! [As Elmo St. Peters Continues to try doing the operation, Toaster closes the curtains, Elmo looks up, Blanky and Kirby makes Spooky Sounds. As Soon as Elmo sees his Reflection on Toaster, he screams, runs around and runs into the pole, which knocks him out.] See? It worked! I told you it would work. I told you. I told you. I told you. I knew. I knew. I knew. It worked.
[Whoops as Refrigerator pounds the door down, then Quadruped goes in the Drives. He starts the Drives up and drives away quickly, while the broken appliances ran away back to their masters' homes and Toaster and his gang rescue Radio and went off into the city with him and a baby carriage. Elmo St. Peters wakes up and notices the shack being torn apart. Zeke pokes his head in the hole]
Zeke: Did I catch you at a bad time? Just wondering if you got my radio tubes.
