I normally do not like saying this because I trust you and have so much respect for you guys, I am a writer myself, so I understand how hard you guys work.
Puh-lease don’t turn Mater into a joke character in Cars 3.
Please don’t make him do stupid crap for the sake of doing stupid crap. Please don’t make him oblivious. Please prove every single one of his haters wrong by showing that he is not a joke character, that he is not a walking stereotype, that he is not just an annoying caricature who’s only purpose is to make three-year-olds laugh - and please show how sweet, kind, earnest, optimistic, emotional, loyal, and perceptive yet naive he really is. That is Tow Mater.
I understand that he will not be the main focus - just please don’t treat him badly. I know you guys can do it. I love you.
~Sincerely, a passionate fan who has way too many feelings about a rusted hillbilly tow truck
