My 2 year old son can’t get enough Mater right now! He would watch Cars Toons: Mater’s Tall Tales all day long if he could. Mater is the lead character in those and he’s also in the Disney movies Cars, Cars 2, and Cars 3. These tow mater quotes are cute and fun.
He’s best friends with Lightning McQueen, the red racecar and main character in the Cars movies. Other characters he’s close to are Holley Shiftwell and Sally Carrera.
Mater is a 1955 Haulital Hook’em tow truck. He’s brown and rusty, but used to be baby blue. He lives in Radiator Springs off Route 66 and has a company called Tow Mater Towing And Salvage. He’s funny, loyal to his friends, and has big buck teeth.
Mater is voiced by Larry The Cable Guy. He has a thick, southern accent.
