Mater and the Ghostlight is a 2006 Pixar computer-animated short created for the DVD of Cars, which was released on October 25, 2006 in Australia and in the United States on November 7, 2006. The short, set in the Cars world, tells a story of Mater being haunted by a mysterious blue light.


Lightning McQueen: Gosh it sure is a nice night.
Sally Carerra: It sure is a nice night.
Lightning McQueen: I sure hope Mater isn't waiting around anywhere to scare me, because I'll freak out.
[Mater jumps down and scares McQueen]
Lightning McQueen: AHHHH!
Doc Hudson: [laughs] If only you moved that fast on the race track.

Tow Mater: Oh, no! It's the Ghostlight! Ghostlight, I respect thee! Return from where ye came!
Tow Mater: Oh, it's just a lightnin' bug! The Ghostlight ain't yeller, anyhow. Sheriff said the Ghostlight is blue!
Tow Mater: THE GHOSTLIGHT! AAAH! The Ghostlight behind me AAH! Now, it's a front of me. It's right on my tail.

Tow Mater: [laughing] Oh, buddy! You look like you've seen... the Ghostlight!
Sheriff: Mater! Don't mock the Ghostlight!
Lightning McQueen: What is the Ghostlight?
[silence for 10 seconds]
Sheriff: The Ghostlight is a glowing orb of blue translucent light that haunts these very parts.
Tow Mater: Nah, don't be too scared, buddy, it ain't real.
Sheriff: IT IS REAL!
[Lightning and Mater are shocked]
Sheriff: It all started on a light like tonight. The song dogs were wailin' at the moon of Cadillac Range while the summer wind blew hot like the breath of Zozobra. A young couple was heading down this very stretch of the mother road when they spotted an unnatural blue glow, and all that was left were two out-of-state license plates. So remember: The one thing that angers the Ghostlight more than anything else is the sound of clanking metal.
[Mater's metal body clanks and tries to keep it from shaking]
Sheriff: As you head home tonight, keep an eye out. The Ghostlight could be anywhere. [Giddly] Well, good night!
Sally Carerra: Whew, I'm bushed. Good night!
All cars: Good night.
[All drive off to their homes and turn the lights off]
Tow Mater: Uh, good night.
[The street and neon lights shut off]

Tow Mater: [over radio] Help!
Lightning McQueen: Mater? Where are you? We've been looking for you all night.
Tow Mater: McQueen! I need your help!
Lightning McQueen: Oh, no! Guys, we're needed for a rescue mission.
Ramon: Count me on that, man!
Lightning McQueen: Alright, Lizzy, the towing ropes. Doc, the searchlights. Flo, the ramp. Ramon, the hooks. Sheriff, the sirens. Luigi, Guido, the monster truck tires. Sally, the fuel. I'll get the trailer.
Tow Mater: I hope my friends get here soon.
Lightning McQueen: Hang tight, Mater. We're coming!

Ramon: [while Mater is running from the "Ghostlight", part of the prank, leaves] Lemme know how it turns out!
