Wacky Races

Wacky Racers was a Hanna-Barbera cartoon from the 1968-1970. According to IMDB

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.Written by Kenneth Chisholm <kchishol@home.com>

Peugeot Brazil has brought them back to advertise the 208.  It’s everything I imagined it could be. especially Dick Dastardly.  Penelope Pitstop is even better,. but maybe that is because I am not 7 years old any more, and can appreciate the illustration.
