Episode Recap

Mish Mash Missouri Dash: The racers come up with ways to come around a dangerous turn atop a mountain peak on their way to Mish Mash, Missouri. Dick Dastardly takes a sneaky shortcut, but so does the Army Surplus Special and the Arkansas Chug-a-bug. Dick Dastardly runs into an angry hillbilly who D.D. tricks into thinking he's his cousin. After the hillbilly smashes the Army Surplus Special into the ground with a tree, he runs into Luke and Blubber. Luke finds the hillbilly is his cousin Elmer and tells him that D.D. isn't their cousin and the Mean Machine gets numerous holes in it costing the race again as #3 The Conver-a-car takes the race. Idaho a-Go-Go: Dick Dastardly tries to block the road with a concrete block, but it gets stuck and falls to late. All the cars have a chain reaction car crash except Penelope Pitstop and D.D. Dick Dastardly disguises himself as little red riding hood and tells Penelope to take cookies to her grandma. Dick disguises himself as the grandma and Muttley as the wolf. When Muttley comes she hits him with a pan and does the same to Peter Perfect. Then the real wolf arrives and throws D.D. and Penelope. As they near the end of the race Dick uses a cattle crossing sign to stop the racers and take a false detour. But the detour isn't a through road and they back up over D.D., when he gets up a real bull chases after him because of the red costume. Thus costing him the race and #1 the Slag Brothers win.
