Wacky Races

Wacky Races (1968 - 1970?) is an animated cartoon series from Hanna-Barbera Productions, featuring a "daredevil troupe of daffy drivers competing for the title of the World's Wackiest Racer". Attempting to foil their efforts was the show's resident villain Dick Dastardly[?] and his sidekick, Muttley[?] the dog. Like Wile E. Coyote in the Road Runner cartoons, Dastardly would concoct all sorts of elaborate schemes to trap, divert, blow up or stop the other racers, only to see them backfire spectacularly. In fact many of Dastardly's plots look suspiciously similar to those used in Road Runner episodes, which might be explained by the fact that Mike Maltese[?] was a scriptwriter on both series.
