Freeze Frame! - Mike, Sully and Buy N Large Lug Nuts

Relating to our review today of the new Blu-Ray DVD Mater's Tall Tales are these two Freeze Frames from the short Tokyo Mater.  This particular cartoon in the Tall Tales series was originally released in theaters with the Disney animated feature Bolt.

As Tow Mater inadvertently careens through a restaurant in downtown Tokyo, we briefly catch a glimpse of the Cars versions of Monsters Inc. characters Sully and Mike Wazowski.  These renditions first appeared as part of the end credits of Cars.  Also in the short, an electronic billboard pays subtle homage to Wall-E via an advertisement for Buy N Large Lug Nuts.
