3.0 out of 5 stars Stop releasing syndicated versions, please! May 14, 2005
Format:DVD
The three stars I give to this release is not to the show itself, but the shabby treatment it's been given. It looks like the syndicated editions of this show have been used to make the DVD, which means all the cliffhanging tags that ended the programs have been omitted. The original series usually left you on a cliffhanger note that was continued from one program into the next, and here, all the episodes end nice and cleanly. I don't see any reason for this, since you are getting the complete season, after all. It's a shame that so much material was left off this release (when this is probably the only time it will ever get such a deluxe treatment), but I suppose it's better than not having it available at all. I wish Warner Bros. would pay more attention to what they're leaving out when they release these Hanna Barbera sets. I wasn't happy about the edited shorts being included on their Tom & Jerry 2-disc set, the syndicated end credits (instead of the more proper one from the original broadcast) used on the "Wacky Races" set, and certainly not over this. Even the lamer opening theme is used on the Penelope Pitstop episodes. Just very disappointing, overall.

By J. Rose
Format:DVD
Penelope Pitstop returns to your TV screen in this DVD release, the third part of a trio consisting of WACKY RACES, DASTARDLY AND MUTTLEY IN THEIR FLYING MACHINES and THE PERILS OF PENELOPE PITSTOP. In the days of their release upon the public, they heralded Hanna-Barbera's return to gag-laden slapstick comedy that began with such series as YOGI BEAR and HUCKLEBERRY HOUND.

The plot is simple: Our semi-hapless heroine Penelope Pitstop, fresh from her tenure in WACKY RACES, is heir to a vast fortune of millions (which probably enables her to travel the world and have adventures, if this series is any indication). Unfortunately, her legal guardian Sylvester Sneekly, in his guise of the Hooded Claw, is determined to destroy Penelope and gain her fortune for himself. Hot on the trail to aid Penelope Pitstop are the Ant-Hill Mob (also from WR) and their loyal car Chugga-Boom, whose desperate attempts to rescue Penelope from the clutches of the Hooded Claw often wind up with the Mob having to be rescued by the strangely resourceful Penelope (who surely must be used to this sort of thing--after all, she DID race with Dick Dastardly).

By today's standards, this cartoon is dated, predictable and rather lame; however, it's lame in a way that can be described as unrepentant. It NEVER pretends to be more than it is, and it often manages to acknowledge its own goofiness simply by playing everything deadpan-straight. In this age of grossouts, fart jokes and pretentious self-referencing in cartoons, this is downright refreshing.

The voice cast features such HB stalwarts as Mel Blanc, Paul Winchell, Don Messick and Janet Waldo, who voices Mlle. Pitstop.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great product August 8, 2007
Format:DVD
Good cartoons, ideal for kids and people who enjoys good humor. It makes me forget about bad cartoons for children. All family comedy, great to spend the afternoon with children. It's a shame studios nowadays produce so conflictive cartoons. I recommend this product.

Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
When I ordered "Wacky Races" in May, originally, I wasn't going to order either of it's spinoffs. However, after renting the DVDs of the complete series of both spinoffs, I decided to not order "Dastardly & Muttley & their flying machines" but I couldn't resist ordering "The Perils Of Penelope Pitstop". I think that "Perils" is a wonderful series, just as wonderful as "Wacky Races". I love the plot which has Penelope inheriting a vast amount of money and her legal guardian, Sylvester Sneekly, A.K.A. The Hooded Claw, tries to do away with her so he can have the fortune all to himself. However, the Anthill Mob, who are Penelope's loyal friends & protectors, always foil the Hooded Claw's schemes by coming to Penelope's rescue, although, sometimes Penelope rescues herself, then has to rescue the Anthill Mob, sometimes. I also like the fact that the episodes take place in different locations (the jungle, a carnival, the North Pole, a movie lot, etc.). I also love the collectible print and how the set is packaged in full-color. What I really love are the characters, especially Penelope Pitstop & the Anthill Mob, whose members I really like are Yak-Yak, with that laugh of his, and Zippy, because he's so fast and, sometimes, says things twice! Plus, I must admit, I even like the Hooded Claw, with the amazing voice of Paul Lynde, and the Bully Brothers, especially when their schemes fail. To sum it up in one word, this DVD set is wonderful. Just like "Wacky Races", I love this DVD set and, to anyone that's a fan of 60's/70's animation, Hanna-Barbera cartoons, or any cartoons, in general, I recommend that you buy this set because, believe me, it is TERRIFIC!

5.0 out of 5 stars At last it's on Dvd Yeah!!!! August 8, 2005
Format:DVD
This is one dvd set that does not disappoint. It has lots of extras from commentary, interviews, and a collectible print. The cartoons are really good kept me laughing the whole time! The Ant Hill mob, Bully brothers and the hooded claw all add to the pure enjoyment of this dvd. Two thumbs up for this dvd set it was worth the wait.
