Storyline

Sylvester Sneekly is the legal guardian of female race car driver Penelope Pitstop. He disguises himself as The Hooded Claw for the purpose of killing her so as to acquire her wealth. Penelope's protectors, the Ant Hill Mob (Clyde, Softly, Zippy, Pockets, Dum Dum, Yak Yak and Snoozy) always foil his crimes to rescue her. Through the series, Sneekly keeps his alter ego in the front to mask his identity and intentions from Penelope. He would break the fourth wall by directly addressing the narrator revealing his crimes to the audience. He would then browbeat the narrator by calling him horrible and sinister names. Written by Jordan Malone

Trivia

Like its predecessor, Wacky Races (1968), the title and content of this series are spoofing a particular film, in this case the old silent movie serials, the most famous example being The Perils of Pauline (1914). See more »

This spinoff from "Wacky Races" is pretty good.
20 July 2002 | by (PA) – See all my reviews

I've been catching reruns of this old cartoon on Cartoon Network over the last couple of weeks, and frankly I'm probably in the minority. I actually like this show. It stars Penelope Pitstop (a female racer from "Wacky Races") who is being constantly on the run by her laywer Sylvester Sneekly (aka The Hooded Claw who is just Sneekly in disguise) whom wants to elude of her since she inherited a fortune, and would give it to him if something were to happenn to her (you know like death or something like that for an example). But Penelope has protection thanks to my fave characters from "Wacky Races" the Ant Hill Mob (those guys rule!!!!!) who will keep our damsel in distress from being captured by the Hooded Claw.

I really like this cartoon a lot. I know that Hanna Barbera has made some lame spinoffs in the past, but this is great. 10/10
