      Randy Myers San Jose Mercury News “Cars on the Road ” celebrates the friendship of two very unlike people, er, cars and how that odd couple-ness takes them to unexpected destinations and gives them better insight about each other and those around them. Rated: 3/4 Sep 8, 2022 Full Review Pramit Chatterjee Digital Mafia Talkies Cars on the Road is an incredibly fun, spooky, and action-packed little miniseries that’s brimming with beautiful animation, foot-tapping numbers, and timely messages about friendship, family, and self-acceptance. Rated: 4/5 Jul 20, 2023 Full Review Jason Flatt But Why Tho? A Geek Community Cars on the Road is a good bit of fun held back by its too-short format. Rated: 7/10 Jan 14, 2023 Full Review Alex Maidy JoBlo's Movie Network If your kids are fans of Lightning McQueen and Mater, they will have a bunch of new toys they will add to this year’s Christmas list. Beyond that, there is not much else to warrant a recommendation for this series. Rated: 6/10 Sep 23, 2022 Full Review Polly Conway Common Sense Media Zippy series has a few scares but mostly whole-family fun. Rated: 4/5 Sep 19, 2022 Full Review Diego Peralta Cultured Vultures Cars On The Road is an unfulfilling collection of shorts which suggest that the Cars universe was better left alone. Rated: 5/10 Sep 16, 2022 Full Review Read all reviews

      Aiden M Great, the new characters are fun, but it did fail to help find a favorite character except for Mater. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 03/01/24 Full Review Spencer P A fun bit of extra world-building that knows exactly what it is and doesn't take itself too seriously. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 11/18/23 Full Review Gabe Pixar does an amazing job of bringing back one of their most beloved duos Lightning McQueen and Mater. This series just allows for more time spent with two characters doing what makes them the loveable characters they are. Never a dull moment, a must-see for sure. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 10/30/23 Full Review JORGE DIEGO H At list this needs to be the perfect Cars 2 that was not realesed, because this is a good show with great episodes Rated 5 out of 5 stars 09/28/23 Full Review Pointless W I think it's mediocre if you were watching it because of your children that's fine but as a cars found your not really missing that much Just wait until the fourth movie Rated 3 out of 5 stars 09/05/23 Full Review Aaryan J It was awesome. Glad to see those characters again. It was also amazing as Monsters at Work and Dug Days. It reminds me of Cars 4. I hope they will make a season 2 as well. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 04/16/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a review
