* ''Anime/{{SD Gundam|Force}}'' did a ''WackyRaces'' homage episode, complete with ''[[Anime/MobileSuitGundamZZ Gundam ZZ]]'' villains Yazan Gable and Gemon Bajack as transparent parodies of Dick Dastardly and Muttley. Sadly, due to licensing issues, this short couldn't be included in a recent DVD collection.

* ''WesternAnimation/ScoobyDooAndTheReluctantWerewolf'' took the exact format of WackyRaces and replaced the normal racers with monsters. The plot centered around Shaggy being turned into a werewolf to participate in the race, because the ''real'' werewolf had retired to Florida.

* In the episode "Death Race to Oblivion" of ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheBraveAndTheBold'', the interstellar warlord Mongul forces five superheroes and five supervillains to participate in the titular death race. The Batmobile and its ilk are already pretty WackyRaces in expressing the owner's, uh, preferences, but this episode revels in it.

* Creator/TheBBC's ''[[http://www.bbc.co.uk/cbeebies/grownups/about/programmes/kerwhizz.shtml Kerwhizz]]'' is a mostly-CGI, pre-school game show, in which three teams consisting of a kid and his/her android NonHumanSidekick answer questions before racing their pods around a themed "race world". One suspects the writers may be paying homage to ''WackyRaces'' with titles like "Fun Food Freeway", "Moonlight Night Flight" and "The Deserted Desert Dash".

* "[=EcksEcksEcksEcksian=] Cart Wars" in ''[[TabletopGame/DiscworldRoleplayingGame GURPS Discworld Also]]''. A low-tech parody of ''GURPS'' combined with the ''Film/MadMax'' sequence in ''Discworld/TheLastContinent'', and an experiment in seeing how far the ''GURPS Vehicles'' rules could be pushed before they broke. [[DevelopersForesight Pretty far, it turns out]].

* ''Film/TheGreatRace'' was inspired by and very loosely based on the real-life 1908 New York-to-Paris automobile race, and some of the more nonsensical aspects of the movie (crossing the Bering Strait on an ice floes, for instance) were actually considered for the actual race before common sense prevailed.
