At night, all around town, Mater the disheveled tow truck is causing havoc, playing tricks, disturbing the peace, and scaring other motor vehicles. At Flo's V-8 café, the local cop car warns Mater about the ghostlight, a legendary orb of blue that haunts these parts. The cop car tells the story and warns one and all that the ghostlight hates the sound of clanking metal. All the cars rush home, leaving only Mater, whistling past the graveyard, alone at his junkyard. Then, a blue light appears; can Mater save himself or is there more to the story? Written by
Did You Know?
Although the "ghostlight" in this film is referenced in Cars
(2006), this short does not take place "in the middle" of that film (that is, a "previously unseen moment"), but at an undetermined time after. This is evident in that Mack, Lightning's transport truck, is present (but has no lines). See more
Gosh it sure is a nice night.
It sure is a nice night.
I sure hope Mater isn't waiting around anywhere to scare me, because I'll freak out.
