I am a little upset that is was only half the legnth of a normal kids movie for the same price though. I realize its cars, but it should have been more around the 12$-$15 range since its only 35-40 mins long.
Cars Toon: Mater's Tall Tales
The only real issue is that both my daughter and I said the same thing after it ended...Is that it? I didn't look closely at the back of the case when I bought it so didn't see that the running time for the 9 shorts was 38 minutes. Just when she gets into a story it ends. For the price of this DVD I was expecting more. It will definitely keep her happy until the next movie comes out but I still think it was a bit lacking in content.
The stories themselves are varied and occasionally amusing: the noir one in particular has a neat sense of style. They're pretty shallow, however, with none of the background nuance or easter eggs of an actual Pixar movie.
The worst part of all this is the total run time - it's less than your typical one hour TV show sans commercials (less than 40 minutes). So while it may temporarily distract your toddler, temporary is the key word. That and after a single viewing you will have already be driven insane by Mater's "If I'm lying I'm crying!" exclamation (and its variants), which he utters at the beginning of every single short or roughly every five minutes.
Mater's Tall Tales is a compilation of short stories of Mater's outrageous stories and adventures that always leaves you wondering...he did what?? These shorts have been kicking around the Disney channel in the US for some time, filling in some gaps between shows. These shorts were done so well, same calibre as the movie, that people just begged for a formal DVD/Blu-Ray release. Thank you Pixar for listening!
You love Cars, you love animation, you have to have this!

These short stories are excellent. But, I was disappointed because this collection is missing 5 of the shorts. Not sure why they wouldn't put them all on one disc.Published 6 months ago by Blammogirl

This cartoon is terrible. Absolutely terrible. It is a bunch of 3 minute clips where Mater lies about stuff he had done in the past. Read morePublished 15 months ago by Brunette1
