Trivia

Contrary to popular belief, the Ant Hill Mob in this show is not the same Ant Hill Mob that was in Hanna-Barbera's previous cartoon series, Wacky Races (1968). While there are still seven members of the Mob and they are drawn in a similar style, there are enough differences in both appearance as well as names to indicate that these are two separate groups. The car used by the Mob ("Chug-a-Boom") is also of a different design than the car (the 'Bulletproof Bomb') in the Wacky Races. See more »

Quotes

[From "Jungle Jeopardy," when the Hooded Claw eventually captures Penelope.]
Sylvester Sneekly, a.k.a. 'The Hooded Claw': Welcome, Penelope.
Penelope Pitstop: Oh, it's you, my arch-enemy, The Hooded Claw.
Sylvester Sneekly, a.k.a. 'The Hooded Claw': Who did you expect - Dick Dastardly?

Zany fun
29 June 2005 | by (Virginia, USA) – See all my reviews

It's been many years since I saw this show, but as I recall it was a lot of fun with a combination of slapstick humor and clever dialog. I often caught my parents laughing at it. Penelope was a wealthy fashion plate Southern gal and The Hooded Claw (now there's a name!) was always cooking up ingenious ways to destroy her (e.g., explosive pastries called "bombs-bombs") and get his grubby hands, err, claws, on her fortune. He was aided by identical twins, the Bully Brothers, who did everything in unison, even when crying "Oh no!" when a plot backfired on them. But they always failed, often due to the timely intervention of the Ant Hill Gang in a smart car long before KITT came along.
