Watch Wacky Races

Wacky Races is an animated comedy series produced by Hannah Barbera Cartoons. It's about a group of 23 racers in 11 cars racing around various locations in North America, accompanied by an off screen announcer who narrates the ongoing events in each race. Each racer or team wants to win the races and receive the title of the World's Wackiest Racer.

Each car comes equipped with some sort of special ability to help them win the races. Some cars have abilities that allow them to speed up, and others come with items or attachments to put other racers at a disadvantage. The show has two main villains, Dick Dastardly and Muttley, his dog. They try each race to take out several other racers so they can steal the victory, but their plans always backfire, leaving Dastardly and Muttley in the dust of the other racers as they zip past them and onto the finish line
