Storyline

Set in World War I, Dick Dastardly, his dog Muttley, and the rest of the Vulture Squadron are bent on capturing Yankee Doodle Pigeon to prevent him from delivering his messages to the enemies. Aboard their many crazy aircraft, Dastardly and Muttley devise nefarious plans to stop the pigeon. Their motivation is the possibility of earning a medal or maybe even a 30 day furlough. The only problem is, that crafty pigeon always seems to be one step ahead. Written by Brian D. Switzer <bswitzer@uoguelph.ca>

Great when you are a kid....like eating glass for adults!
15 November 2010 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

Back when "Dastardly and Muttley in Their Flying Machines" debuted, I was a fan. I'd enjoyed the two in "The Wacky Racers" and so it was natural I'd watch this spin-off. And, for a five year-old, it was enjoyable. Several decades later, the show was shown on the Boomerang Channel and I decided to give it a watch for nostalgia's sake. And, to my moderate surprise, the show was absolutely terrible. A horribly low cel count (common in the poorly animated 1960s and 70s that was dominated by Hanna-Barbera), completely one-dimensional characters and terrible writing (with very repetitive and flimsy plots involving catching a stupid pigeon...PERIOD) made it an absolute chore to watch. After a few episodes, I swore I'd never see this abomination again!

So why do I think I liked it to back in the old days? Much of it simply was because bad writing and low cel counts were the norm for 1969. Now, with the improvement in the quality of cartoons, it's obvious when you watch any of the old shows of 1969 that they simply don't stack up with the recent offerings by Nickelodeon or the old classic Looney Tunes shorts. And, I assume with kids today seeing better quality cartoons, that they, too, would be a bit bored by this Dastardly cartoon.
