The Cleveland Truck Drivers are the final main antagonists of the 2016 Pixar film Finding Dory.
Role in the film Edit
Dory is placed in the quarantine section and tagged. There she meets Hank. Dory's tag shows that she will be sent to an aquarium in Cleveland. Due to a traumatic ocean life, Hank wants to live in the aquarium instead of being released back into the ocean, so he agrees to help Dory find her parents in exchange for her tag.
Marlin and Nemo manage to get into the institute and find Dory in the pipe system. Other blue tangs tell them that Dory's parents escaped from the institute a long time ago to search for her and never came back, leaving Dory believing that they have died. Hank retrieves Dory from the tank, accidentally leaving Marlin and Nemo behind. He is then apprehended by one of the employees and unintentionally drops Dory into the drain, flushing her out to the ocean.
After Dory finds her parents, Marlin, Nemo and Hank end up in the truck taking various aquatic creatures to Cleveland. Destiny and Bailey escape from their exhibit to help Dory rescue them. Once on board the truck, Dory persuades Hank to return to the sea with her, and together, they hijack the truck and drive it over busy highways. Daisy and Carl try to stop them, but when Hank turns back to go to the ocean, they lose the truck. They presumably called the police to get their truck back. However, Dory and Hank crash the truck into the ocean, freeing all the fish.
They were presumably fired from their job after the police lost the truck in the ocean.
