Storyline

Sylvester Sneekly is the legal guardian of female race car driver Penelope Pitstop. He disguises himself as The Hooded Claw for the purpose of killing her so as to acquire her wealth. Penelope's protectors, the Ant Hill Mob (Clyde, Softly, Zippy, Pockets, Dum Dum, Yak Yak and Snoozy) always foil his crimes to rescue her. Through the series, Sneekly keeps his alter ego in the front to mask his identity and intentions from Penelope. He would break the fourth wall by directly addressing the narrator revealing his crimes to the audience. He would then browbeat the narrator by calling him horrible and sinister names.

Catch the pigeon, catch the pigeon
13 November 2011 | by Naughtia_NahSee all my reviews

We had this cartoon on VHS and I remember watching it SO many times when I was a kid. The one thing that gets stuck in my head from this cartoon is the theme song. I can still hear the theme song of Dastardly and Muttley called '..Catch the pigeon, catch the pigeon..' it is very funny.

Although I wasn't that fond of Penelope Pitstop, my favorite character was Muttley.

This is one of the good creations from Hanna-Barbera and this cartoon (also the series about Dastardly and Muttley) is widely known by almost all children born in the 70's and the 80's. I'm feeling quite nostalgic thinking about this, so I just might watch it again soon on Youtube.
