Theme Tune

You Might Think – Weezer


Oh well uh, you might think I’m crazy
To hang around with you
Or maybe you think I’m lucky
To have somethin’ to do
But I think that you’re wild
Inside me is some child

You might think I’m foolish
Or maybe it’s untrue
(You might think I’m crazy)
You might think I’m crazy
(All I want is you)
All I want is you

You might think it’s hysterical
But I know when you’re weak
You think you’re in the movies
And everything’s so deep
But I think that you’re wild
When you flash that fragile smile

You might think it’s foolish
What you put me through
(You might think I’m crazy)
You might think I’m crazy
(All I want is you)
All I want is you

Trivia

The production wanted to use a little-known version of the song “Route 66” by Chuck Berry, which had appeared on the B-side of one of his singles. They approached Berry’s record company, who didn’t know anything about such a version. After they trawled through their record vaults, they realized that Pixar was right.

Sir Tow Mater KG, most commonly referred to as Tow Mater or simply Mater, is one of the main characters in Cars and its sequels, Cars 2 and Cars 3 as well as Cars Toons. He is voiced by Larry the Cable Guy and inspired by a 1956–57 International Harvester. Tow truck and 1955-1957 Chevrolet Task Force. Portrayed as Holley Shiftwell’s boyfriend and best friend and Lightning McQueen’s best friend and sidekick, he had a breakout role in Cars Toons: Mater’s Tall Tales and in other media related to Cars.Mater’s design is based on a 1955 -57 Chevrolet Task Force Tow truck once used to lift equipment from mine shafts in Cherokee County, Kansas. The Route 66 Town of Galena is named for the lead sulphite ore galena, to which the series of small mining Towns around Baxter Springs owe their boom and subsequent bust. The original truck is currently based at a former Kan-O-Tex Service Station in Galena; the station was restored as a Route 66 diner and souvenir shop by Four Women on the Route one year after the film’s 2006 release.

Trivia

Finn McMissile is a hybrid of several cars. The roof-line and doors are from a Volvo P1800, the car used by Sir Roger Moore in The Saint (1962). The grill and fenders are from a BMW 507. Many other elements are from an Aston Martin DB5, James Bond’s trademark vehicle. According to “James Bond Vehicles” by John Cork and Collin Stutz, it never carried missiles, though the Goldfinger (1964) version had machine guns.

Best-known for his cross-dressing stand-up comedy routines, British actor/comedian Eddie Izzard was born on February 7, 1962 in Aden, Yemen while his parents were there on business. After working as a street performer and in smaller comedy venues throughout the 1980s, Izzard received his big break with his one-man comedy show Eddie Izzard: Live at the Ambassadors (1993). The show earned Izzard a Laurence Olivier Award nomination for outstanding achievement and garnered Izzard his first British Comedy Award for top stand-up comedian.
The name Miles Axlerod, as voiced by Eddie Izzard, was taken from one of Izzard’s stand-up routines about the invention of the wheel and axle.

Eddie Izzard was the voice of Reepicheep in the film adaptation of Prince Caspian

QUIZ 2

What was the original colour of Mator before he become all brown and rusty ?

A. Camouflage Green
B. Burnt Orange
C. Army Green
D. Baby Blue

His original color was Baby Blue, as shown in a flashback; however, over the years he has rusted into a light brown-orange color, with some of the blue still showing, though. He is missing his hood and his left headlight. (However, in Mater and the Ghostlight, he trembles so much, his right headlight comes loose.) However, in the ending credits of the First Film, he receives his hood (which is still mostly Baby Blue) by lowering his hook, grabbing it onto the hood and pulling them back up again, says that he hasn’t seen his hood in 20 years, puts it back on, sneezing, having it fall off himself and then losing it again with it falling down a cliff.
