I don't know if any of y'all ever saw this old but great cartoon, but Peugeot just made and ad that brought the characters back. Thus is made me think of the old cartoon and creat a thread for it. :D

Here's the Peugeot ad.

And here's an episode from the old show.

Who's your favorite racer? Mine were the Sarge and Private in the Army Surplus Special, and the Anthill Mob.

Did anyone ever calculate who got the most wins? Who the ultimate Wacky Racer is?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wacky_Races

Yep. Someone did. Quoting Wikipedia...


The show gave the results of each race at the end of each episode, (the first, second, and third placings are given by the narrator, and we sometimes saw some or all of the other cars cross the finish line). The show never indicated a particular scoring system or way to determine who won the Wacky Races as a whole. However, based on FIA's 1961-90 Formula One point-scoring system (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Formula_One_World_Championship_points_scor ing_systems#Points_scoring_systems) in use when the show first aired (9 points for 1st place, 6 for 2nd and 4 for 3rd), the Slag Brothers would finish with 87 points, followed by Rufus Ruffcut and Sawtooth with 79, and then The Ant Hill Mob with 74.

A winner is you, boys. A winner is you.

*insert the fact that Dastardly and Muttley were always the fastest drivers yet never won anything*

He never won, though he came close one time only to be disqual'd after winning. But he came back in the Fender Bender 500 and won one. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fender_Bender_500#Fender_Bender_500

I was sure he did actually win one legitimately in the Wacky Races, though. Discounting the one where he got disqualified afterwards, of course.

Me too, but I can't find anything to prove them wrong.

I LOVE IT! I LOVE it! I LOVE it! Dick Dastardly and Muttley were the best!
