What if Sheriff were temporarily forced out of his role as the guardian of Radiator Springs? Who would take over during his absence? Well, in the upcoming Cars Toon, To Protect and Serve, we find two overzealous officers (Mike and Didi) trying to make their mark in law enforcement by dishing out citations on top of citations during Sheriff’s mandatory vacation.
We exclusively broke the news of the upcoming Toon back in October 2014 and although an official air date has yet to be announced, we assume it will be coming to televisions soon since a die-cast set was recently released at the Disney Store.
The set features 1:43 scale versions of Mike 07 and Didi 05, along with Sheriff, Student Driver McQueen, and Police Tape Mater (with removable tape cover). As previously reported, a 1:55 scale Mattel set is also planned to feature Mike, Didi, and McQueen as well. (More details comparing scale sizes of die-cast cars can be found here.)

Additionally, you can also pick up the To Protect and Serve: Step Into Reading Level 2 book on Amazon now as well.
I'm so so excited about this new short, I hope Pixar will make more Tales From Radiator Springs for the next years before Cars 3 😀 So there's no official release date yet? I want to watch it so badly…
Nope, no official date as of yet, but we'll be sure to pass the word along as soon as we hear anything!
Thanks so much 🙂 I'll be waiting!
