4.0 out of 5 stars Everything in one package October 13, 2010
Format:Blu-ray
For those of you who do not have the Disney Channel, Mater's Tall Tales are five minute CGI animated shorts based on characters from Pixar's Cars. They are about the tow truck, Mater, regaling his friends on his numerous (and outrageously unrealistic) adventures such as meeting a UFO, being a world famous bullfighter, professional wrestler or daredevil, and other crazy situations. These shorts always fall back on the same joke where Lightning McQueen challenges Mater's tale as being true and Mater replying with, "Don't you remember? You was there too", which ends with McQueen being in the thick of the tall tale.

The animation quality is on par with the movie. Plus you get appearances of other Cars characters like Sally, Red, Mia and Tia and more. They even get just about all of the original actors to do the voiceovers with the notable exception of Owen Wilson as Lightning McQueen (replaced by veteran voice talent Keith Ferguson). All in all a fun little cartoon to fill time between shows on Disney.

This Blu-Ray collects all of the shorts ever released and a couple that haven't come out yet. This totals nine cartoons, so it's not exactly a large amount of content at about 40 minutes. You do, however, get about 50 minutes of additional features to whet your whistle. Here's a list of the bonus stuff:

Paths to Pixar - Similar featurette to the ones on other Pixar collections this has interviews with Pixar artists, editors and such and gives insights on their experiences and other career details.

Studio Stories: McQueen Has No Hands - The challenges of manipulating a map when your character doesn't have any hands.

Mater: Bumper to Bumper - Goes into detail about the creation of Mater and how he is animated.

3.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed in Total movie time..... November 8, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I bought this movie for my 4 yr old son's birthday. I specifically checked the run time of 90? minutes. Sunday he was watching it for the first time and before I got dinner ready it was over. I was like "Why did you turn it off?" Everyone said it's over. Do you really think my kids gonna be entertained by 1 hour of "out takes?" Um..No. Mater is funny don't get me wrong, but I wouldn't have bought it had I known the actual movie time is 38 minutes. :( HIGHLY DISAPPOINTED!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great!, And A Thought On The Cost November 14, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The detail of this DVD has been covered quite splendidly by previous reviewers; I really just want to add my 'aye' to the 4 and 5 star count, and to comment on the cost of the DVD, since a couple of people have mentioned it. I think that there are some movies out there that you pay a ridiculous amount for, as well as getting nailed for all the franchise stuff (cough, cough "Princess and the Frog"), and you walk away from the experience feeling as though you've been taken... this isn't one of them. Maybe it's because, as noted, it is a handful of short cartoons, but each one feels finished, and there's no "What, that's it?" at the end of the disc, which our household has suffered through with "Frog", "Marmarduke", even as far back as "Chicken Little". And don't even get me started on "Furry Vengeance"! And so, yes, it's short, if you want to get technical, but the quality of the product is absolutely great (Mater is my son's favorite CARS character, and so I buy alot of stuff having to do with the drawlin' haulin' guy), and I'd pay this same amount again for whatever the franchise has coming up next. Wait, am I supposed to admit that???
