26 Jul The Hanna-Barbera hilarious, animated Wacky Races, starring, Dick Dastardly, Muttley and Penelope Pitstop.
The animated classic, Wacky Races was a huge hit with children and adults alike. The hilarious, comic genius of the naughty, sniggering dog Muttley accompanying the evil Dick dastardly being pitted against the beautiful, sophisticated Penelope Pitstop was brilliant. The plot was a simple one, all the eleven main characters were trying to win a race across America, they could use any sneaky, underhand tactics they wanted to employ. The racers included Peter Perfect, in his car the Turbo Terrific, a gentleman who often tried to help the heroine in the plot Penelope Pitstop. Being a lone female driver in her car the Compact Pussycat, Penelope brought some sophistication, poise and elegance to the crazy capers.
When Penelope was making repairs on her car or enjoying a well-earned day of rest she could well have parked her precious vehicle behind Garage Doors Swindon secure in the knowledge that her pink mean machine was safe because of her sturdy garage fitted with secure doors by a company such as upandoverdoorsltd.co.uk/garage-doors/garage-doors-swindon/ . Dick Dastardly was the main villain of the series and he drove his Mean Machine as fast as he could, alongside his sniggering hound Muttley. The rocket-powered, purple, flying car had an array of illegal weapons, concealed carefully in the engine, boot and body. His sneaky tricks never succeed but he always tried to roar off from the start of each race to get ahead of his competitors. Laying dastardly traps with his canine accomplice to stop the other drivers in their tracks but they never quite worked out.
The Ant Hill Mob are next on the list of mad drivers (in this completely wakey race), led by Clyde, this strange group of dwarf-like gangsters competed in their car the Bulletproof Bomb. As they were all wanted gangsters, they often ran away from the scene by extending their feet through the bottom of their vehicle to get extra getaway power. Next were the brothers Rock and Gravel, portrayed as cavemen who could only talk gibberish and drove a car made from rock. They could only start each section of the race by using their wooden clubs and hitting the sides of their vehicle as hard as they could. The remaining drivers were, The Gruesome Twosome, Professor Pat Pending, The Red Max, Sergeant Blast with Private Meekly, Lazy Luke, and Rufus Ruffcut.
