Wacky Races

The Wacky Races are a series of car competitions in which 11 racers race in locations throughout North America. The rules are extremely lax and allow for almost any vehicle design, power system and a wide range of tactics like combat and shortcuts. Despite this loose rule structure, competitors Dick Dastardly and his dog sidekick, Muttley, are still determined to cheat in their own ineffectual way.

Character Bio

Penelope Pitstop photo
Penelope Pitstop is the only female competitor on Wacky Races. She drives car #5, the Compact Pussycat, which is essentially a beauty salon on wheels.

She also headlined a spin-off series, The Perils of Penelope Pitstop, which spoofed silent movie serials of the early 20th century. On this show, Penelope is an heiress protected by the Ant Hill Mob. Penelope's guardian, Sylvester Sneekly, in his secret identity of the Hooded Claw, continually sets death traps for Penelope in the hope of taking over her inheritance. Fortunately, Penelope always either escapes on her own or is rescued by the Ant Hill Mob.

Penelope later made two guest appearances on Yogi's Treasure Hunt.
