Cars 2 / Cars / Mater's Tall Tales Collection
Originally telecast on various Disney outlets (Disney Channel, Toon Disney, ABC Kids, etc.) the Cars Toons: Mater's Tall Tales feature the characters Mater and Lightning McQueen from Disney-Pixar Cars universe. As in the films, Larry the Cable Guy voices the titular tow truck, with Keith Ferguson taking over for Owen Wilson as the voice of Lightning McQueen. The format for the shorts finds Mater in storytelling mode, recounting some fantastic adventure or other to a few of his fans, eventually pulling a reluctant McQueen into yarn. The first three shorts -- "Rescue Squad Mater," "Mater the Greater," and "El Materdor" -- debuted in October 2008. The next four -- "Unidentified Flying Mater," "Tokyo Mater," "Heavy Metal Mater," and "Monster Truck Mater." -- appeared between November 2009 and July 2010. The last two in the series -- "Moon Mater" and "Mater Private Eye" - premiered on DVD and Blu-ray.
