Including when her son was being deployed to Afghanistan and other soldiers brought toasters with them to get her autograph.

2. The script had to be rushed to accommodate Jon Lovitz who had just been cast on SNL


They really wanted Lovitz to voice Radio, so the writer, Jerry Rees, begged Lovitz to stay in Los Angeles just long enough to do the movie. They ended up recording Lovitz lines all in one session.

3. Producers almost took out two of the most iconic scenes

The nightmare scene and the junkyard scene were almost removed at the request of producer Donald Kushner. However, someone decided against it and left them in. Sure, the nightmare scene is horrifying and probably too scary for a lot of kids, but it builds character right?

4. The original director of this movie went on to start Pixar

Since the Looney Tunes started, they have been able to bring together the entire world with their hilarious cartoons. Whether we were watching Bugs give a haircut, Wile E. Coyote chase the Roadrunner, or Sylvester go after Tweety, there were infinite possibilities and all were entertaining.

20 Movies From The 90s That Still Make You Sob Uncontrollably

Watching movies was the ultimate treat on a weekend. Our parents would let us help them pick out the best movies possible at Blockbuster and we would watch it all together. But as we got older, we didn't want to just rent whatever cartoon had come out that week. We wanted to watch something new and exciting. We wanted our parents to think of us as young adults now. We weren't children, we were capable of understanding complicated emotions. The problem was, we were not ready for the levels of emotion these movies gave us. I remember the first movie


'Free Willy' Came Out 25 Years Ago, But Where Is The Star Of The Movie Now?

Watching Free Willy as a kid made us all appreciate whales a little bit more than we did. We didn't realize what it was really like for the animals in those amusement parks, and while it was a fictional story, it was sad to see.

We all learned that there was "no crying in baseball," but apparently there is a lot of laughter, because A League of Their Own is coming back, but this time as a half-hour sitcom! The classic 90s movie about the baseball league that was created during the second World War stole audience's hearts, and they are hoping that there are still a few home run stories to tell with a new show. It's kind of a reboot, so I get it if you're hesitant, but even if you don't like the new show, there's always the original movie to go
