  • Trivia

    • In "Whizzin' to Washington", when the Sergeant asks Penelope if she's alright, we can see that only six members of the Ant Hill Mob are in the pyramid, in which Penelope is standing. Where did the seventh member of the Ant Hill Mob went to?

    • This is the first (and only) episode in which both races are won by the same car.
