This page is for references to the Back to the Future trilogy from material that doesn't fit in a specific category.

Cars Toons

  • A cancelled episode, called Backwards to the Forwards, is a parody of Back to the Future, as it has time travelling, as well as making numerous allusions: Mater gets his ability to travel time after being hit by lightning, which is reminiscent of how the DeLorean "time machine" succeeds to get back to the future by being hit by lightning. At the end of the episode, the time-travelling Mater can fly and has retractable wheels, exactly like the DeLorean "time machine". Additionally, the classic clock that Lightning McQueen and Mater look at is made as the one that plays an important role in Back to the Future. However, the episode was cancelled, though in 2012, a final version of the episode, called Time Travel Mater, was made.
