Cars spin-off “Mater’s Tall Takes” are shorts that tell the unbelievably amazing life of Mater. If they are true or not they are up to the viewer to decide. Part of the rescue squad Mater tells the story of saving Lightning McQueens from a burning building. Not only that but Mater is also the doctor which treats McQueen at the hospital.
A stunt car as well. Mater has been everything and each story is more unbelievable than the last. Seeing a UFO, being a Monster Truck Wrestler, a private eye, a rock star for the metal band Heavy Metal Mater, modified to be the kind of Tokyo as an import, and going to the moon for a tow.
These cartoons are cute and kid friendly. Who won’t believe Tow Mater when he says “If I’m lying, I’m crying.” The two main stars of the Cars movies are in these shorts that are quite amusing.
I give these shorts 5 out of 5 Popcorn. They entertain, they tell a full story in a short amount of time, and they are available as a DVD set or on Netflix.
