Tow Mater Coloring Pages

The character Mater speaks with a hick Southern redneck accent with a dash of hillbilly twang and frequently uses incorrect syntax. The real-life person who was the inspiration for Mater’s voice is Harley Russell from Erick, Oklahoma on Route 66. Harley’s natural voice has the same sound and same mannerisms as Mater. Mater’s final personality was based on his voice actor, Larry the Cable Guy, and he uses many of Larry’s catchphrases, including “Git-R-Done” during the final race sequence and “I don’t care who you are; that’s funny right there” during the tractor tipping scene. Larry the Cable Guy spent time with Harley Russell to learn the voice for the character. A Cars “Rev’d Up” DVD released as a 2006 bonus in Target stores describes Mater as inspired by a 1957 Dodge truck.
