The Wacky Races are a series of car competitions in which 11 racers race in locations throughout North America.

As a kid in the 80s and early 90s, I would occasionally catch this cartoon show on TV - one of several Hanna Barbera programs that I remembered fondly from my childhood.
"Wacky Races" is a series about 11 racers that compete in locations throughout North America, resulting in wacky, unending adventures and wide ranges of tactics. Lots of excitement and fun, and I loved seeing the large cast of characters and each of their characteristics (kind of reminds me of a cartoon version of the movie The Cannonball Run).
While a more obscure Hanna Barbera cartoon, it is still better than the more recent cartoons dished out for kids nowadays.
