Trivia:
Contrary to popular belief, the Ant Hill Mob in this series 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:

Penelope Pitstop, heiress to a vast fortune, is in perpetual peril from her fortune seeking guardian Sylvester Sneekly, who, unknown to her, is really the Hooded Claw.
[the Hooded Claw laughs deviously]
Narrator:But foiling this fiend's foul plots are Penelope's everepresent protectors The Ant Hill Mob.
Sylvester Sneekly:I'll get you, Penelope Pitstop!

I'll get you Penelope Pitstop, 20 February 2015
Author: Terryfan from United States

The Perils of Penelope Pitstop follows Penelope Pitstop (Janet Waldo) a rich woman who travels the world only to be chase and place in danger by The Hooded Claw (Paul Winchell).

This show was a spin off of Wacky Races another cartoon by Hanna- Barbera. HB always makes interesting and classic cartoons and this is one of their more interesting ones.

It has a female protagonist with a villain who laugh always can make you shake.

Now that's rare for villains these days and even in the day.

The Perils of Penelope Pitstop had some good animation as HB is known for along with some good voice acting and music to boot.

The Narrator (Gary Owens) always makes the show interesting as he tells the story of each episode.

Some people may have different opinions on the show but I find it to be interesting if you are a fan of Hannah Barbera cartoons then give this one a try.
