The Wacky Races are a series of car competitions in which 11 racers race in locations throughout North America. The rules are extremely lax and allow for almost any vehicle design, power system and a wide range of tactics like combat and shortcuts. Despite this loose rule structure, competitors Dick Dastardly and his dog sidekick, Muttley, are still determined to cheat in their own ineffectual way.

"Wacky Races Forever" is a 2006 animated pilot spun off from "Wacky Races." The pilot depicts a roster of both new and returning racers competing against each other. Penelope Pitstop and Peter Perfect are married and have created Perfect Industries (the corporate sponsor of the new Wacky Races). Their children, Parker and Piper, also compete in the race. Other characters include the Slag Brothers, Professor Pat Pending, a teenage version of the Gruesome Twosome, and Dick Dastardly and Muttley (working for a new villain named Mr. Viceroy, who sought to steal Perfect Industries). This pilot was not picked up by Cartoon Network.
