It looks like someone has added a fourth season to Mater's Tall Tales

Someone has then overwritten the episode names stating the duplication:

**delete: duplicate of ep 4714148 of show 275378: Tales from Radiator Springs.
**delete: duplicate of ep 4714149 of show 275378: Tales from Radiator Springs.
**delete: duplicate of ep 4714150 of show 275378: Tales from Radiator Springs.
**delete: duplicate of ep 4889528 of show 275378: Tales from Radiator Springs.

It would be nice if they had submitted it via the forum rather than vandalising the entry
I checked and the episode names, dates and artwork match up

Could this season be deleted please?

Thanks for catching this!
I've deleted Season 4 of Mater's Tall Tales as its episodes were duplicates of Tales from Radiator Springs.

Searching the forums brought up two similar requests made over the past year:
viewtopic.php?f=7&t=52348
viewtopic.php?f=7&t=54663

But I couldn't find anything to shed light on why the Specials season is locked.
I have no idea whether Season 3 should be deleted or these four episodes should be deleted from the Specials season.
Do you have any source that can help?

Well looking at IMDB the arrangement is a little different:

Season 1 All the same
https://www.imdb.com/title/tt1384816/episodes?season=1

Season 2 S02E01-E04 and S03E01-02
https://www.imdb.com/title/tt1384816/episodes?season=2

Season 3 S03E03-S03E04
https://www.imdb.com/title/tt1384816/episodes?season=3

This would leave Mater and the Ghostlight as a special
From the looks of things this is how TMDB have the show also:
https://www.themoviedb.org/tv/16335-car ... uage=en-US

This just leaves the episodes in order without grouping by season:
https://www.bcdb.com/cartoons/Other_Stu ... all_Tales/
As does the Pixar site:
https://www.pixar.com/cars-toons
And TVGuide
https://www.tvguide.com/tvshows/cars-to ... es/295704/
Also Wiki
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cars_Toon ... 2%80%9312)

On balance I'd say the IMDB arrangement seems best but that's the best I can see at the moment

I'm sorry, but I haven't been able to get an answer from the moderator who locked the seasons of this series.
However, with the new site we're now able to support alternate orders. I can enable that for Mater's Tall Tales if you wish to organize the episodes in a different order, but know that this means you'd have to create all episodes from scratch. (There's no way to copy the existing ones over from the Official Order.)
