Crashed Pilots: Wacky Races Forever

It’s been a while since my last one of these. Hopefully this one will be more popular than my previous one. Now, without further ado, let me introduce you to

Back in 2006, Cartoon Network got a pilot for a spinoff of the classic Wacky Races series, titled “Wacky Races Forver”. This series is set an unknown length of time after the original (but at least 16 years, since children of the original racers are now racing themselves). Penelope Pitstop and Peter Perfect married and created “Perfect Industries”, which sponsors the new races, and apparently produces insane creations.

Their children, Parker (brother) and Piper (sister) now race against Prof Pat Pending, the Slag Brothers, a new Gruesome Twosome (with a hot little vampire chick), and Dick Dastardly and Muttley.

While they are nominally competing against everyone, they are primarily competing against each other, their sibling rivalry is quite high.

Dastardly is still up to his old tricks, but now he is working for some greater evil person, one who is trying to take over Perfect Industries.

This pilot is unfortunately short (it doesn’t even have a title card nor credits), but it seems that this series would have had much more plot than the original, and no narrator.

It’s key plot point is a Perfect Industries product, a bridge made out of snakes. Yes, you read me correctly, a bridge made out of snakes. No, this bridge was not designed by Dick Dastardly, it was actually created by Peter Perfect. Go Fig.

…And now, I leave you with this image:
