  • The cop car didn’t move

  • Mater did not move, speak or light

  • None of the tractor cows had lights, audio or movement

  • Neither does the thresher

  • Effects don’t move in town right before entering tire/paint shops

  • The transport vehicle moved into the tire shop, but the curtain did not open to reveal the tire illusion

  • Doc stood still

  • Lightning McQueen not working
