Theme song[edit]

  • And now, here they are! The most daredevil group of daffy drivers to ever whirl their wheels in the Wacky Races! Competing for the title of the world's wackiest racer! The cars are approaching the starting line. First is the Turbo Terrific driven by Peter Perfect. Next, Rufus Roughcut and Sawtooth in the Buzz Wagon. Maneuvering for position is the Army Surplus Special. Right behind is the Anthill Mob in their Bulletproof Bomb. And there's ingenious inventor, Pat Pending, in his Convert-a-Car. Oh, and here's the lovely Penelope Pitstop, the Glamour Gal of the Gas Pedal. Next, we have the Bouldermobile with the Slag Brothers, Rock and Gravel. Lurching along is the Creepy Coupe with the Gruesome Twosome. And right on their tail is the Red Maxx. And there's the Arkansas Chug-a-Bug with Luke and Blubber Bear. Sneaking along last is that Mean Machine with those double-dealing do-badders, Dick Dastardly and his sidekick, Muttley. And even now, they're up to some dirty trick. And they're off... to a standing start. And why not? They've been chained to a post by shifty Dick Dastardly, who shifts into the wrong gear. And away they go on the Way-Out Wacky Races!

Dialogue[edit]

[while the Ant Hill Mob are disguised as the Seven Dwarfs, Dick Dastardly passes by]
Clyde: [to Dastardly] We're the Seven Little Dwarfs.
Dick: Well, I'm Snow White, so tell me where the highway is.
Clyde: Sure, you just make a sharp turn left.
Dick: Thanks, shorty. [giggles] You get it? Shorty? [drives off]
Clyde: Yeah. You're gonna get it!
[as informed, Dastardly makes a sharp turn left... into a mud pit]
Dick: What will I do? I'm stuck in the mud!
Clyde: Keep going! Maybe you'll strike oil!
[Clyde and the rest of the Ant Hill Mob laugh and drive off, leaving Dastardly to sink in the mud. Muttley laughs it off, too]

Dick: [to Muttley, of whom laughs after putting Dastardly in yet another predicament] One more snicker out of you, and I'll lease you out as winter headquarters for a flea circus!

Narrator: Is it cold, Rufus?
Rufus: You betcha! My hot rod just turned into a cold rod!
Penelope: Cold hands warm hearts, I always say.
Peter: Thank heavens for antifreeze.
[ice cubes are pouring out from the exhausts of Peter's Turbo Terrific]

[Penelope Pitstop sees an abominable snowman, unaware that it is Dick Dastardly disguised as one]
Penelope: Well, I do declare, a cute, old, adorable snowman!
Dick Dastardly: You pronounce it "abominable"! [Dastardly roars] Go back!
