Sparky (or full name: Sparky Car for an odd reason) is an anthropomorphic sports car. He is the main protagonist of the (A) Car's Life series. He is based on an AC Cobra.[1]

Why He Doesn't Find His Own Road nor Doesn't Go on a Big Adventure

A Car's Life: Sparky's Big Adventure/General

  1. He is completely a rip-off of Lightning McQueen from the Cars series, most notably due to them both being the main protagonist, and both being painted in red. But unlike Lightning McQueen, who gained character development later in the film, Sparky doesn't get enough character development in the film, aside from learning not to trust strangers, even in the second film. which makes him somewhat feel such like a one-dimensional. Despite this, Sparky isn't even a race car. He is more of a sports car as possible!
  2. Dumb and lazy last name. His last name is "Car". So that makes his full name be "Sparky Car", which is absolutely a stupid idea. It's a lot like as if James Rolfe from The Angry Video Game Nerd would be James Human, Fred from Scooby-Doo would be Fred Human, and by the film's logic, Scoop from Bob the Builder would be Scoop Digger instead.
  3. He unrealistically literally jumps over a pothole and drives around nor does circles around the cactuses for no reason!
  4. In a scene where his dad Fender pushes him to the car wash at the gas station, he says the very dark term "Child abuse!", which is an inappropriate script for a U-rated film.
  5. Lackluster modeling: He has his mouth where his nose (grill) should be.
  6. Despite the film's title being titled "Sparky's Big Adventure", and its synopsis, he does not even go on a big adventure at all.
  7. He wants to find his own road but needs to learn the rules.
  8. He never listens to Fender, who is also explained in the film's synopsis as well.
  9. Just like with all of the other main characters (even including Norbert as well), he was very recently reused as an unanthropomorphic model from Spark Plug Entertainment's next film, Spider's Web: A Pig's Tale, which was actually interestingly enough to be released on the same date as the first Car's Life film did. Same goes for the desert roads as well.
  10. Plot holes involving him, like why would he keep his modifications even though he already hated it?
    • On that topic, in the ending he said that he'll take off his modifications, but in the sequels, he is still shown to have them stay on.
  11. His mouth hardly moves and does not work well as his grill.
    • In addition, it stays open, and he somehow smiles like Pepe the Frog!
  12. Major alternate semi-resemblances from later media, etc.: His design is somewhat almost a foreshadow of Roary the Racing Car, a visually very similar character from the 2007 animated series of the same name. And his eyes resemble that of the Lightning McQueen "Kerchoo" meme.

A Car's Life 2

  1. Plot holes involving him again, like why did Fender ask him to slow down on the patch of gravel, but Sparky didn't anyways? Why did Fender ask Sparky did he take the turn at the turtle crossing sign, but claimed there was no sign? And in the case of the last topic, he didn't make the turn at all anyways! Next, why did want to wear some weird-looking front bumper accessory called a "Bump-Me-Knot"?

Redeeming Qualities

A Car's Life: Sparky's Big Adventure/General

  1. A few funny moments were involving him, like where he is about to sing.
  2. Additionally, despite him not getting much character development, he can still be nice sometimes.
  3. He gives a bit better performance in A Car's Life 2.
  4. He redeems himself a bit in the third film, A Car's Life 3: The Royal Heist.

A Car's Life 2

  1. Once again, funny moments were involving him in here too, like where he sneezes on the stack of oil cans.
  2. He can still be nice sometimes again.


  • "WAPOW MY BRETHEN" became a meme based on him.
