Trivia: Wacky Races

  • Cowboy Bebop at His Computer: Several reference books have a character in the show called The General, as voiced by John Stephenson. There was a one-shot general in the episode "The Speedy Arkansas Traveler", but the only military personnel in the regular cast were Sgt. Blast and Private Meekly.
  • Defictionalization: The Goodwood Festival of Speed has built working replicas of all of the vehicles (minus the extraneous gadgets and hijinks, of course).
  • Fountain of Expies: You'd be surprised how many Muttley clones there are. If not clones, there are those who mimic his signature laugh.
  • Hey, It's That Voice!: Naturally, Daws Butler, who is near half the headline cast of Hanna-Barbera's cartoons. Also, Tigger is Dick Dastardly, and Scooby-Doo is Muttley.
  • Role Reprisal: While most of the voices in the Dreamcast game are soundalikes, Janet Waldo and John Stephenson reprised their resepctive roles as Penelope Pitstop, and as Luke and Blubber Bear.
  • What Could Have Been: There was an apparent revival of the series in 2005, but it quickly went under. The pilot's on YouTube, though.
