Silly and corny but hilarious, 12 May 2010
Author: TheLittleSongbird from United Kingdom

I remember watching this and Wacky Races and loving them both. Personally now I do prefer Wacky Races, but this is a great show as well. The premise may be a tad narrow at first, but it is very interesting well for me it is anyway. The visual gags and dialogue may be corny at times, but they were always funny as well(ie. the ludicrous flying machines, Klunk's gibberish, Dastardly's hilariously sarcastic remarks about Klunk's inventions, "Drat and Double Drat" and the General's shouting), and the animation is cheerful. The theme tune is simple but really memorable, the lyrics are close to uproarious at times. The story lines can be somewhat repetitive, but they are still fun, and the voice acting is solid. The characters are also great fun, Zilly is hilarious and Dick Dastardly's mutterings are worth plenty of chuckles but for me Muttley steals the show, he is a bad character but he is lovable as well, with his mumbles, silly laugh and priceless facial expressions, Muttley for me has the whole package. The voice acting also from Paul Winchell and Don Messick is superb. Overall, it is corny and silly but it is hilarious as well.
