The Wacky Races are a series of car competitions in which 11 racers race in locations throughout North America. The rules are extremely lax and allow for almost any vehicle design, power system and a wide range of tactics like combat and shortcuts. Despite this loose rule structure, competitors Dick Dastardly and his dog sidekick, Muttley, are still determined to cheat in their own ineffectual way. Written by

The show was inspired by the film The Great Race (1965). Natalie Wood (playing Maggie DuBois) became Penelope Pitstop (even wearing the same pink racing outfit). Dick Dastardley was based on Jack Lemmon's character Professor Fate and Dastardley's sidekick Muttley was loosely based on Peter Falk's Max Meen. See more »
Wacky Races is one of the best cartoons of the 60s. It contains a bunch of fairly silly racers who are all competing for being the world's wackiest racer. Each cartoon contains a lot of funny obstacles, many of which are created by the racer Dick Dastardly in car double zero. Often times Dick cheats and will create road blocks and such to slow down the other racers. In the end, he always ends up coming in dead last. This is a very inspired cartoon that is good for a laugh or two.
