Mater can also be found in Car Toons: Mater's Tall Tales (which were played on the Disney channel), the short cartoon, Mater and the Ghostlight, Cars comic books, and he has also appeared in every Cars video game that has been created.

Mater hails from Radiator Springs, a small little town off of route 66 that was forgotten about then returned to promise with the help of Lightning McQueen. Mater's allies are his best friend Lightning McQueen, Sally Carrera, Sheriff, Guido, Luigi, Flo, Ramone, Doc Hudson, Sarge, Fillmore, and the rest of the town. In Cars 2 Mater even has a love interest.
Mater has a lot of difference paint jobs and costumes in the cars series which includes Car Toons. He usually is very rusty, with hints of blue paint and green paint on the door and letters which say 'Tow Mater: Radiator Springs,' he also has a missing headlight and a flashing yellow light on top of his tow truck.

Mater is voiced by Larry the Cable Guy and was created by John Lasseter. In Cars 2 Mater's role really steps up and he really does steal the show. 
You can find Mater at Disney's Hollywood Studios and also at Disney's California Adventure. He will soon be found in Cars Land at Disney's California Adventure which is scheduled to open in the Summer of 2012. Info that has been given so far looks amazing, it will be a great addition to Disney's California Adventure.
