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

As bad as Hanna-Barbera is at making spinoff shows, this "Wacky Races" spinoff is pretty good (as well as "The Perils of Penelope Pitstop"). It stars Dick Dastardly, and his dog Muttley who have traveled back in time to World War I. They along with some other pilots (Zilly, and Klunk) form the Vulture Squadron, and have one mission: To stop a carrier pigeon from crossing enemy lines. Like in "Wacky Races", Dastardly fails at his task, but still the results are humorous.
I really have to give Hanna-Barbera a lot of credit. Their spinoff shows were really bad, but their "Wacky Races" spinoff shows were great. 10/10.
