"Oh! Ye wanna play, do ye?"
Cletus, Cars: Mater-National Championship

Cletus is a character that has made multiple appearances in the Cars series. He is one of Mater's cousins, and can often be found spending his time competing in races at the Rustbucket Stadium. Cletus' Dialogue suggests that he is the oldest of Mater's cousins, as he sometimes refers to himself as "old-timer" and tells his opponents to "mind their elders" when he is passed.

History

Background

As a child, Cletus spent time with his cousins Mater, Buford, and Judd, taking part in activities such as fishing and tractor tipping. However, the four cousins were constantly bullied by a large truck named Bubba. One day, however, Bubba through Mater's hood into a tree, resulting in a challenge to a race against Mater. Cletus, Buford, and Judd watched the race between the two, and although the competition was close at first, Bubba had trouble turning around the statue of Stanley, causing him to lose control, leaving Mater to win the race. From that point on, the cousins no longer had to deal with Bubba's antics.
