    whilst i sense some disappointment, it made me smile...!!
    I remember these guys on the Banana Split Show in the UK in the early to mid 70's!! [​IMG]

    This, of course, has no bearing whatsoever on the gameplay of this title...which I hold very little hope for.....

    I won't say it looks brilliant, but it doesn't look like crap either.

    Just spent a little time playing it and as expected it's pretty poor. You just have no real sense of control and all the players just bunch together all the time. It's just pure luck if you win or loose as the only part of the race that matters is the mad dash at the end.

    The DC game wasn't great but it was far better than this.

    The kids used to watch this every morning a couple years ago so may find it amusing... but I don't expect them to play it more than once and only for a few minutes. [​IMG]

    I could be wrong here but I will stick my neck out anyway, I dont think the Wakey Racers cartoon was ever in the Banana Split show http://bananasplits.4t.com/EpisodeGuideMain.html There was a The Banana Splits And Friends Show edited together later on but they were not in that either IIRC.

    Trivia :- Did you know the voice of Fleegle was the same person who did Dick Dastardly, Tigger, Goober from Goober and the Ghost-Chasers and Gargamel from the Smurfs....... Paul Winchell...... He also invented an artificial heart with Dr Henry Heimlich....... look him up....

    Wacky races was a classic cartoon, sadly the game looks like it sucks balls.

    I remember dastardly and muttley chasing a pigeon every show for some reason too, singing "Stop the pigeon", a catchy little tune it was.

    Ahh yes, "Dastardly & Muttley In Their Flying Machines" - classic stuff. Why Hanna Barbera kept flogging that dead Great Dane of a show Scooby Doo (especially Scrappy Doo) as opposed to making more Dastardly & Muttley is beyond me.

    Muttley, you snickering, floppy eared hound.
    When courage is needed, you're never around.
    Those medals you wear on your moth-eaten chest
    Should be there for bungling at which you are best.

    So, stop the pigeon
    Stop the pigeon
    Stop the pigeon
    Stop the pigeon
    Stop the pigeon
    Stop the pigeon
    Stop the pigeon
    How?

    Nab him
    Jab him
    Tab him
    Grab him
    Stop that pigeon now!

    You, Zilly, stop sneaking, it's not worth the chance.
    For you'll be returned by the seat of your pants.
    And Klunk, you invent me a thingamabob
    That catches that pigeon or I lose my job.

    So, stop the pigeon
    Stop the pigeon
    Stop the pigeon
    Stop the pigeon
    Stop the pigeon
    Stop the pigeon
    Stop the pigeon
    How?

    Nab him
    Jab him
    Tab him
    Grab him
    Stop that pigeon now!
