We signed a contract, Dr. Jones.

And the "Booby Trap Clause" specifically states that I would receive triple pay, plus compensation for pain and suffering for any injuries sustained in our adventure.

What do you have to say for yourself, Dr. Jones?

Dr. Jones!

I'm on top of the world!

No other truck has ever climbed a peak this high before. I'm the best of the best! The king! The envy of all the other cars in the backyard!

So... uh... how am I supposed to get down?

Thursday, October 25, 2012

Looks like you took that turn a little too fast again.

Guess I'll give you a tow. You know, you really aren't too bright for a hot shot race car. I've had to tow you out of that same spot how many times now? Four? Five?

Some cars never learn.

Tuesday, October 23, 2012

No thanks, Master W.

I really don't want any more "cawwots". I know you like to feed them to me, but I could really go for some fish or zebra instead. Got any of that in the fridge?

Friday, October 5, 2012

Get up, Guido.

Sarge doesn't look too happy. He probably thinks you're slacking off...

Monday, October 1, 2012

I told you I'd win.

You may be a race car, but you're no match for my monster truck wheels out on the dirt track.

Thursday, September 27, 2012


I've begun to lost count of how many times Master W. and Tow Mater have tipped me today.

The dizziness is really starting to get to me. Where's Frank when you need him?

Thursday, September 20, 2012


So, um, do I look the part of "ferocious urban tiger"?

Yeah, I didn't think so either. Well, back to the drawing board.

Wednesday, September 12, 2012

That was fun!

It's been so long since Master W. has taken me anywhere with him. Do you think I can go to school with you guys again tomorrow?

Monday, September 10, 2012

Hey, maaaaaaaan.

I sure hope that watermelon you're eating for lunch is certified organic.

Thursday, September 6, 2012

Hey, City Bus.

Do you think it's better out there? You know, out on the open road?

Master W. takes us on all sorts of fun adventures, but sometimes... well, sometimes I look out the window and wonder where that big road leads.

M-m-m-m-miss C.?

I see you're building a new house today. Since I gave mine to Owl after his blew down on the Blustery Day, can I live in this new house?


Wednesday, August 8, 2012

Good evening, commuters!

There's a multi-car accident on I-5 just south of Freeport Blvd., with traffic backed up for two miles. If you're heading southbound tonight on your way home from work, you may want to find an alternate route. The Highway Patrol has closed three out of four lanes of traffic, and doesn't expect the roads to be cleared for at least the next several hours.

Monday, August 6, 2012

I'm telling you, Samwise, he's here!

I swear to you, I saw Gollum! He may be hiding now, but he's sure to come looking for the ring sooner or later.

Friday, August 3, 2012


I'm being attacked by a giant spider!

Where's Rainbow Brite and the Color Kids when you need them?

Wednesday, August 1, 2012

Nothing better, I tell you.

A beautiful day.

A full dump box.

And plenty of daylight left for working.

It's a dump truck's dream come true.

Friday, July 27, 2012

Chip? Dale?

Don't leave me here!

I promise I won't chop down your tree ever again.

Or steal your nuts.

Or terrorize you.

Okay, so I can't exactly promise those things. But I can try! Just please get me down.

Wednesday, July 25, 2012

You wouldn't think it possible.

But it's true.

Even fairies have bad hair days.

Thank goodness Miss C. left this paper cup out.

It's really hard to hide hair this big.

Tuesday, July 3, 2012


Yes, this is Peter Pan speaking.

Oh, hello Miss C.!

How it going?

Uh huh.

Uh huh.

Sure. I can come by later.

See you then!

Friday, June 22, 2012

I hope Miss C. comes back for me soon.

We were having so much fun playing Peter Pan and Captain Hook when all of a sudden she put me here.

Was it something I said?

Thursday, June 21, 2012

There isn't a scrap of trash in sight.

There's nothing for me to do. I hope Master W. starts yelling or banging on the table so we can leave soon. This place is boring.

Tuesday, June 19, 2012

Drop the cookie.

You know you want to.

Cookies aren't even recyclable! It doesn't belong on your truck; and here I am, happy to take it off your hands... er... wheels.

C'mon... just drop it already. I'm right here!

If only that Tigger would stop bouncing! At least this time I wasn't in my garden. He completely ruined my carrot patch last week and I'm still finding carrots jumbled up amongst the other vegetables.

Friday, June 15, 2012

It's about time he gave me a break!

I've been mowing everything in sight ever since Miss C. took my parts out of the box and put me together... two days ago!

The only reason Master W. is giving me a break right now is because it's time for his nap. That kid is relentless!

Wednesday, June 13, 2012

Blackberries, M&M's, hot fudge and a marachino cherry!

Miss C. sure has odd taste in frozen yogurt toppings... but everything somehow worked together. I'm stuffed!

Friday, June 1, 2012

I thought for sure this would work!

Okay, so I admit that escaping through the kitchen drain wasn't the best idea I've ever had.

It could be worse, though.

We could have gotten stuck in the toilet.

Tuesday, May 15, 2012

Ohhh... my head is throbbing...

Where am I?

Why am I laying here?

And who are those people sorting through those boxes of... of... BODY PARTS?!


Sunday, May 13, 2012

I can't believe this is our last visit.

We only have one more day with Miss C. before we have to go back to school. Going home with the other kids just isn't the same.

And the worst part is that in a few more weeks school will be over with and we'll never see Miss C. again!

What are we going to do without her? Will she miss us as much as we'll miss her?

Wednesday, May 9, 2012

Stop messing with the controls down there!

You made me drop the bulb for the street light again.

It had better not be broken. If it is, it's coming out of your pay, not mine!

Friday, April 27, 2012

Something's wrong.

We've never been apart before. I know he wouldn't just leave me like this... unless...

No. It's not possible.

He'd never go AWOL.

He just wouldn't...

Wednesday, April 25, 2012

Keep digging, Master W.

We've got to get two more loads of fill dirt off to the building site by noon!

Monday, April 23, 2012


I should be out there on the tacks right now. I can pull twice the number of cars as that weak little wooden engine!

Saturday, April 21, 2012

People see me as this mindless member of the Imperial army.

But let me tell you, there's a real person behind the mask I wear. And this Storm Trooper loves little fluffy bunnies.

There. I said it.


Phew. It sure felt good to get that off my chest.

Friday, April 13, 2012

When the recruiter said I'd be put on "patrol"...

... I thought he meant some sort of security detail. "Trash patrol" isn't exactly the career I envisioned for myself. I wonder how many other guys fell for that one.

Wednesday, April 4, 2012

Yes, I do believe this was a perfect day.

Master W. and I danced to my songs.

We took a long nap together.

And he gave me a fresh pot of honey.

I'm so glad we're friends.

Wednesday, March 28, 2012


Which one of these levers makes this thing go forward?

Maybe lying on my resume wasn't such a great idea after all...

Monday, March 26, 2012

Quit whining back there!

It may not be as glorious as a raiding a rebel base, but when Master W. issues orders we obey. Without complaint.


Friday, March 23, 2012

All right, Big Shark.

You crossed through the Valley of Fire.

You braved the Tunnel of Doom.

And you managed to survive bath time with Master W.

You can be in our club.
