From Baja To Kentucky, Mud Holes To Apes
9 December 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

We begin in the "rugged peninsula of Baja, California" where the racers are racing toward "the sleepy little Mexican village of Enchilada-by-the-Sea." Well, at least they got Baja right!

Decent sight gags include the cavemen's amazing "Boulder Mobile;" The "Gruesome Twosome's" remedy for an overheated engine; Dick Dastardly's balloons which are in the form of steers and later the Twosome's use of a dragon to dry up the mud (see next paragraph).

The major part of the story, as it usually is, revolves around a plot by Dastardly to sabotage the rest of the races. In this case, he tries to slow them down with a big mud hole. Some of the other racers sink; others find clever ways to combat the problem. I always enjoy how the "Professor" works his way around problems. He and his auto is my favorite in this show.

The second race has the entrants racing toward Krazy Kreek, Kentucky. How they go from Baja to here in successive episodes doesn't make sense but, hey, it's a cartoon.

I enjoyed the sight gags of Dick Dastardly underwater with his roto-route router (boy, this show can't give us enough alliterations!) and how the racers figured out how to manage despite the bridge being out.

The headline refers to Dastardly's bad deed here of using "King Klong," the largest gorilla in captivity, to his advantage. The big ape was being transported when the truck had a flat tire and the driver was fixing it. Dastardly happened to come along and got an idea. He laughs and says to himself, "Boy, does that start the old wheels to turning in my evil mind." He uses "my power over dumb animals" to sabotage the others.....well, sort of.
