Kirby is a green and gray upright vacuum cleaner who appears in Disney's 1987 film The Brave Little Toaster and its sequels.

Personality

In the first film, Kirby reluctantly joins the appliances on a mission to find Rob, who is referred to them as "the Master". While seemingly being cantankerous and bossy towards the others, he actually cares very much about them, and risks his life to save them more than once. Kirby cannot help but keep up appearances, considering that he is independent and often held back by the others.

Relationships

Being grumpy and stubborn, Kirby doesn't hang around much with the other appliances until near the very end of the first movie. He utterly despises Blanky and his overly-emotional personality. However, Kirby starts to soften up as the film progresses. In the movie's sequels, he is more laid-back and closer to his fellow appliances.
