Larry the Cable Guy,
A routine tow lands Mater in Tokyo, where he is challenged to a drift-style race against a nefarious gang leader and his posse of ninjas. With the help of his friend, 'Dragon' Lightning McQueen, and some special modifications, Mater attempts to drift to victory and become 'Tow-ke-O Mater, King of all Drifters.'
After Nurses George and A.J. of the Shady Oaks Retirement Village witness Carl leaving with his house towed by balloons, other senior citizens around the city are inspired to make their own "escapes", much to George and A.J.'s chagrin.
A.J. Riebli III,
"Cars Toons: Mater's Tall Tales" is a collection of 9 very short films that was made by director John Lasseter for fans of Pixar's "Cars". I am not one of these, so I am not particularly surprised that this animated short film collection left me fairly unimpressed. There were 2 more short films made the year later, but these do not belong to this collection here. Anyway, the entire thing here runs for 36 minutes, so if you do the math you will see that the runtime average per film is 4 minutes. Actually, it is even a bit under that as "Tokyo Mater" is a couple minutes longer than the rest. I personally only liked one or two of these and that is why I can only recommend this collection to huge fans of the "Cars" franchise. And what is up with Lightning McQueen here. Does he have amnesia as apparently everything Mater says is true. Not recommended.
