  • Nostalgia for the old cars
    February 12, 2017
    I love Pixar movies and planned to watch shorts by this studio for a long time. Some of the short cartoons that I happened to watch was an episode of series about the dumbest character of ¨Cars¨ movies – Mater. Cars' stories in themselves are not the best work of Pixar, nevertheless I gave a try to some episodes of TV series. Why do I like this story, that it takes simple idea turning a car to a time machine to show the viewer the history of Radiator Springs and revealing the secret of who Stanley was. When Mater travels to the past he founds Stanley – The Radiator Cap Salesman which is just about to live this place because there are no broken cars in the area. Understanding, that the city might never be created, Mater returns to the future to take McQueen him to the past. Stanley can get him repaired and stays. Although this cartoon seemingly has some goofs the overall sensation of nostalgia for the old cars yet novelty of characters gives 6/10 in return.
