Storyline

Pete Hothead decides to buy a new car to replace his old beat-up jalopy. Meanwhile, his wife has won a new car on a television quiz show that is the same make and model as the car Pete purchases from a car-dealer. Pete arrives home and sees the car his wife won and mistakes it for the one he ordered from the dealer, but it is a different color. He drives it back to the showroom for a replacement, and that begins the first of many problems he is to encounter. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

Four Wheels, No Brakes is a funny Pete Hothead cartoon
1 January 2012 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

Just watched on YouTube as linked from the Cartoons, Model Sheets, and Stuff site this second, and last, Pete Hothead UPA cartoon. In this one, Pete decides to get rid of his old jalopy and get a new car. Unbeknownst to him, however, his wife wins one from a quiz show. So when the car he didn't order arrives to his house, he goes back to the dealer to get the right one. From there, things go from bad to worse...Another funny cartoon starring this short-lived character with Jim Backus once again contributing to the fun as the frazzled car dealer. It was really funny to me so I'm sorry no more were made after this. So on that note, I recommend Four Wheels, No Brakes.
