    Loathsome Characters Wiki
    Walter (A Car's Life 2)
    Gender: Male
    Type: Unlikable Stereotype of Elderly Men
    Species: Jalopy/decrepit car (Ford Model T)
    Portrayed by: Jim Woods
    Status: Alive
    Media of origin: (A) Car's Life

    Walter is one of the main characters in the Car's Life series, appearing since A Car's Life 2. He is painted black with a green grille and headlights, has white tires, and also green rims. In the next two films later, he carries old junkyard car parts in his seat, unlike in the second film.

    Why He Sucks

    1. Major animation error: The film marks his first-ever appearance, yet his face is creepily upside down, which literally makes no sense. Because his mouth is above his eyes and nose. But thankfully, this was corrected in the next film, A Car's Life 3: The Royal Heist for good.
    2. He is a stereotype of very old men and serves as nothing but an weak elderly man in car form. However, this does make sense considering the fact that he is supposed to be based on and resemble a Ford Model T jalopy/decrepit car, one of the oldest cars in the world.
    3. Despite being old, instead of having moments of being wise and/or intelligent he also hates the modern world for no real reason, which makes him a whiny curmudgeon who complains a lot about how life has changed.
    4. He also comes off as bland and does nothing in the film but complain as a running gag throughout the film, thus making him a "loser" who comes off as a overall boring and forgettable character with nothing to write home about.
    5. He doesn't even subvert his unlikable traits like being a complainer and just remains a curmudgeon until the third film, which makes him feel like a repetitive "comic relief" whose unpleasant, charmless antics had outstayed their welcome.

    Redeeming Qualities

    1. As said on the last part above of the WHS #1 pointer, his face position was corrected in the third film.


    • He could be named after another Spark Plug Entertainment-related film character, Walt, a pig, the main protagonist of Spider's Web: A Pig's Tale.
    • He is the only character out of all to have different color tires aside from the Royalty Castle not really being a character. Because they both have the same tire style.
    • He is the Car's Life counterpart of Lizzie, despite Walter being male, and Lizzie female.
