Time Travel Mater 2012 6 out of 10
In this Cars Toon in the Mater's Tall Tales series of shorts Mater travels back in time and we get to see how Radiator Springs came to be. It was a cute cartoon --but nothing special when compared to many other better Pixar shorts. It features Mater having to make sure that Stanley (the founder of Radiator Springs actually starts it up in the first place, since Mater accidentally keeps that from happening at first. It works best as an introduction to Carsland in Disney's California Adventure as it is a good back story for the things you see in Radiator Springs.
This short can be found on the Pixar Animated Shorts Volume 2 DVD set.....This concludes all the featured shorts from that DVD. in future installments we will cover Pixar shorts Volume 1 which is a great set of animated shorts as well as starting to dig into older Disney cartoons after that.
