The Talking Car

Please choose a format above.

The first thing you might notice about The Talking Car is that the title lacks the “!?!” punctuation made standard by A Talking Cat!?!.

It also doesn’t have voice work by Eric Roberts - unless he’s uncredited, you never know with that guy!

The Talking Car is also slightly misnamed, because it features not one but SEVERAL talking cars. A little boy playing in the street is nearly hit by a car, and next thing you know another car sprouts some eyeballs and a mouth and starts talking to him. In fact, the boy finds himself in a cloudy nether world full of talking cars… so maybe that car really did hit him, after all? A dark potential interpretation the short leaves unexplored!

Instead, the boy and his growly little dog get many lessons and scoldings from the talking cars up in the clouds, including a cranky old jalopy who must’ve had kids saying “Do I really want to drive? Or even be inside a car, ever again?”

Join Mike, Kevin and Bill up in Weird Car Heaven for The Talking Car!

NOTE: This short first appeared LIVE in the MST3K: Reunion.
