Hero Overview

How 'bout some organic fuel?
~ Fillmore.

Fillmore is a supporting character in Cars and Cars 3 and a major character in Cars 2.

He was voiced by the late George Carlin in the first film, and Lloyd Sherr in the sequel.

Bio

Fillmore is a 1960 VW Bus, and naturally, also Radiator Springs’ resident Hippie and clean fuel aficionado. He brews his own organic fuel in his tie-dyed, geometric dome, and his unkempt yard tends to bug his veteran army jeep neighbor, Sarge.

History

Cars

In the first film, Fillmore is a stereotypical hippie, as he has stickers of the peace sign and flowers with his license plate positioned to resemble a soul patch. His name is a reference to the Fillmore East, a venue that was an epicenter for rock performances throughout the 1960s and 1970s. He owns an organic fuel shop (Fillmore's Organic Fuel) which features several flavors, and believes gasoline companies are lying to the public.

Cars 2

Fillmore reappears in Cars 2, joining McQueen's pit crew as the fuel expert for the World Grand Prix. Fillmore was re-cast due to George Carlin's death, and was voiced by Lloyd Sherr. Fillmore initially supports Allinol as it supposedly does not use oil, even convincing McQueen it is safe after several accidents involving other cars using Allinol. However, for the final race, Sarge replaces McQueen's Allinol with Fillmore's organic fuel, which is what prevents Lightning from being killed in the race. He appears in Cars 3, once again a member of Lightning's pit crew as his fueler with Luigi and Guido handling McQueen's tires.

Trivia

  • One of Fillmore's bumper stickers reads "Save 2D Animation." Another reads, "I brake for Jackalopes", a reference to Boundin.
  • Ironically, George Carlin was a veteran of the US Air Force.
  • George Carlin also based the voice of Fillmore on his stand-up character, Al Sleet the Hippy Dippy Weather Man.
  • As revealed in the video games, Fillmore is both a pacifist and a Pisces.
    • Despite being a pacifist, he can be seen with weapons in Cars 2: The Video Game.
  • Fillmore and Fred are the only two characters in Cars who have front license plates, and Fillmore may be the only character in Cars 2 with a front license plate.
  • Fillmore's license plate is 51237, George Carlin's birthday (May 12, 1937).
  • Fillmore is a Volkswagen Type 2 bus. This type of car, often called a "Hippie Bus", was a popular mode of transportation among hippies and people who shared a culture like Fillmore's. In fact, the buses were often painted and decorated to reflect the values of the hippies, similar to the designs painted on Fillmore.
  • Fillmore is the name of an auditorium in San Francisco, California, in which many popular musicians performed in the counterculture era of the sixties and seventies. Fillmore represents a popular vehicle amongst "hippies", a subculture of the American counterculture.
