Those who read my postings over the years know that I not only discuss the best in animation, but occasionally highlight some of the worst. Case in point: Car's Life 3: The Royal Heist.

Move over Planes! The biggest Cars-inspired rip off of the year is here (exclusively on DVD April 23rd) . I somehow missed the earlier entries in the Car's Life series. These films are produced by NY-based Spark-Plug Entertainment and producer Michael Schelp. According to Wikipedia, Schelp's previous films are: 

I know these are aimed at kids - and are priced to sell in those $5. bins at the local drug store... but clearly these are poor. Corrine Orr (the original voice of Trixie on Speed Racer) stars as the voice of Sparky in these... well, I guess you have to make a living. In case these promotional stills don't turn you off - check the preview clip and package art (below):

    I liked those eye placements too. But I guess some people have their reasons.

    The video is no longer available. I still laughed.
