The three stars I give to this release is not to the show itself, but the shabby treatment it's been given. It looks like the syndicated editions of this show have been used to make the DVD, which means all the cliffhanging tags that ended the programs have been omitted. The original series usually left you on a cliffhanger note that was continued from one program into the next, and here, all the episodes end nice and cleanly. I don't see any reason for this, since you are getting the complete season, after all. It's a shame that so much material was left off this release (when this is probably the only time it will ever get such a deluxe treatment), but I suppose it's better than not having it available at all. I wish Warner Bros. would pay more attention to what they're leaving out when they release these Hanna Barbera sets. I wasn't happy about the edited shorts being included on their Tom & Jerry 2-disc set, the syndicated end credits (instead of the more proper one from the original broadcast) used on the "Wacky Races" set, and certainly not over this. Even the lamer opening theme is used on the Penelope Pitstop episodes. Just very disappointing, overall.

Pretty Penelope finds peril at every pit stop, pursued by Sylvester Sneakly (alias The Hooded Claw and also alias the incomparable voice of peerless Paul Lynde) until the notorious Ant Hill Mob somehow bumble to her rescue. But don't let Penelope's girly Southern belle drawl fool you. This damsel in distress can fight back, aided by her stylish retro-chic go-go boots! If you loved Wacky Races, you'll love this spoofy spinoff with Penelope Pitstop, the girl with beauty and brains (other than her inability to figure out Sneakly's dual identity). Enjoy all 17 fun-packed adventures in one racy package with a marvelous mob of DVD extras!
