  • Dastardly puts a gorilla to the test of the racers' slump to frighten Ms. Pit-stop, but Penelope foils the ape's plans to stop the Racers. This is a classic beyond height. This Bommerang TV classic is a doozy in the plains!

    Richard Dastardly first breaks the bridge to start the
    race. The Ant-hill Mob makes the rowing getaway. They are
    back on the road to stop King Klong's pathway escape
    to stop this row of wacky racers' plans for victory lane.
    This December 1968 race makes way for the winner of the
    "Great Ape Race" to make K.K. make Dastardly's wicked
    plot worthless to primate power in time. The 'Creepy Coupe'
    shuts the Slags down, but gets back up fast to catch up to
    the Ant-hill Mob's 1st place pedal. Moreover, Cannon power
    clogs by Klong's huge hand shoves the Army Surplus Special
    tank back in the plains drive to victory over the steady
    Crimson Hay-bailer whose 2nd place fly-and-drive was a
    mention for runner up. This 'Wacky Races' episode was a
    South Florida cartoon classic carried by channel 4 CBS in
    Miami. No harming of 1 primate was done in the making
    of this animated film narrated by the late Dave Willock.
    This race is #3 out of the Cartoon Network Classics Top 5.

  • alright

    it was alright. i didn't proticularly like the whole thing with the gorrilla. i like when the boulder mobile beat up the octopus. I didn't like how the ape stopped everyone i thoght it was kind of boring. I did like when the gruesome twosome got flat tire and they put the snake on as a wheel and the snake whistled at penolope pitstop. I really like how dick dasterdly got extremely close but lost again. I didn't liek how the tank won when he was barely shown the whole episode. Another classic wacky races episode. I reccomend this episode but parts of it aren't great.
