Trivia:
During the "Tokyo Mater" short, Mater misses a drift and finds himself sliding through what appears to be a garage. When the doors on the other side of the garage open and Mater slides out, just inside the door, there are two cars - one that looks like James P. Sullivan and another that looks like Mike Wazowski - a nod to another Pixar production, Monsters Inc.See more »

Well animated and enjoyable...but formulaic., 6 December 2010
Author: planktonrules from Bradenton, Florida

As long as you set your expectations a bit lower, you'll enjoy these very short CGI films. I say set your standards lower because the cartoons are very, very short...and they follow the same formula in each and every one. Each consists of Mater (one of the main characters in the full-length film "Cars") telling what sound like wild fibs. And, each time his friend McQueen says he doesn't believe the story...only to then get confirmation that the story WAS true and that McQueen himself was a witness--though he somehow forgot. While the cartoons are quite trivial, they are gorgeous--with some of the nicest CGI I have seen. As a result, they hold up well on the new DVD "Mater's Tall Tales"--a compilation of all of these short films. Each short is only about 4-5 minutes in length and kids will love 'em. Adults will enjoy them for a while--until they notice that each short is pretty much the same pattern being repeated again and again.
