During the show's development, Muttley's name was originally "Sniffer." Also, each of the Ant Hill Mob had names when they starred a year later on The Perils Of Penelope Pitstop--Clyde, Dum Dum, Snoozy, Zippy, Pockets, Softy and Yak Yak. During development of Wacky Races, their names were Clyde, Ring-A-Ding, Rug Bug Benny, Willy, Mac, Kurby and Danny. Only Clyde and Ring-A-Ding were ever identified by name when the show made it to the air.
