Is it wrong that I can STILL sing the opening song? Sure, there are comparisons with Wacky Races when it came to the teams (hillbillies, a wacky scientist, cavemen, anthropomorphic bears, green skinned monsters), the racing premise and some of the episode titles for both shows could be interchangeable, but so what? There were also plenty of differences (no single main villain ala Dick Dastardly, the race was around the world and on-going instead of a clear winner at a finish line).
I loved this show as a kid and recently found the opening and closing credits on You Tube as well as a full episode (Transylvanian Mad Transit), though it is in french. I remember the episode well enough that I didn't need a translation.
I wish either RTV (which is running a TON of the great old cartoons Saturday mornings) would run it or, better yet, a full DVD set be put out. I lost it when they put out "Wacky Races" and "Stop the Pigeon" and if I found this you couldn't pry it out of my cold, dead hands.
