Car(s)toon collection
15 February 2016 | by (Berlin, Germany) – See all my reviews

"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.
