An In-Depth Look at Mater’s Junkyard Jamboree, Including the Hidden Music Track!

Swing and sway with a herd of baby tractors in Mater’s Junkyard for a Cars Land Jamboree you aren’t soon going to forget. This particular ride video contains the rare “error” track where Mater forgets the lyrics to the song “Welcome to Radiator Springs”. The story behind this is that Imagineer Kevin Rafferty originally forgot the lyrics to one of the songs during a test recording session and John Lasseter thought it would be funny to include a track where Mater forgot the lyrics to the song. Listen for yourself:

Guests having a great time

Overall, Mater’s Junkyard Jamboree is a lot more fun that we expected. The randomized music tracks for the tractors to dance to add a lot to the ride, and it packs a surprising wallop on those turns. If you are looking for a reasonable wait in Cars Land and a minute-and-a-half of fun, then the Junkyard Jamboree is the place.

I have the CD, and enjoy the MJJ songs. When I heard this one in the park, I started cracking up, and have been looking for it off and on for a few months now. In elementary school choir, when we forgot words, we were supposed to say "watermelon," so this song reminded me of that.
