Trivia

Like its predecessor, Wacky Races (1968), the title and content of this show 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 »

Good Fun
14 August 2000 | by (scotland) – See all my reviews

I used to enjoy this as a kid but it always puzzled me how the Hooded Claw hoped to bump off Penelope by tying her to a railway track when she inhabited the same world where Dick Dastardly could be run over by a train and although he might feel a bit flat for a while generally he was OK at the end of the day. What's more the Anthill Mob were often blown up by the dynamite the Claw had intended for Penelope and it didn't seem to do them much harm. Penelope has a big following and I upset this girl I know who used to be a fan by saying it was kinky the way the Claw was always tying her up. She said I'd spoiled her illusions! Still, great fun.
