Names in other languages
Todd is based on the Pizza Planet truck that first appeared in the 1995 animated film Toy Story and has since appeared in every Pixar film to date, with the exception of The Incredibles.
Todd is the only character in the Cars series that has a frontal wiper on his windshield, although it is not present in Cars 2.
In Cars, he is modeled to have the inside mouth shared with their mudguard without any kind of division like other cars do, making him one of a few characters to have this feature. In Cars 2 and Cars 3, it was changed to the normal look of a mouth. The reason for this and his wiper is possibly because he is a modified version of the original Pizza Planet truck from Toy Story.
