Wacky Races Wiki

Ballpoint, Penn. or Bust! is the first segment of the fifteenth episode of Wacky Races, and the twenty-ninth race overall.


Speeding toward Ballpoint, Pennsylvania, Dick Dastardly sets up a fake train crossing, but the train comes out of the screen and runs over him. Rufus Ruffcut leaves a fallen tree in the road, but Red Max cuts through it, then The Slag Brothers use it for a slingshot. Dastardly sets up a bridge trap for the Slag Brothers. The dragon from the Creepy Coupe approaches Penelope Pitstop, but she whacks him with her parasol. The Ant Hill Mob gets caught in one of Professor Pat Pending's soap bubbles. Dastardly's tacks deflate Peter Perfect's car, as well as the tires on the Creepy Coupe and the Arkansas Chugabug. Dastardly and Muttley recycle the dynamite gag from "See-Saw to Arkansas". Dastardly uses a fake police siren to force the other racers to stop.
