Wacky Pod Races

Wacky Races meets Star Wars.

And now here they are... The most daredevil group of wacky pod pilots to ever fly their pods in the wacky pod races, competing for the title of the galaxy's wackiest pod racer.

**Front page. Thanks. I'll try and answer your comments ASAP, but some of your questions can be answered below.**

This was done in Flash 5 (we started this many moons ago). It messed up when we put it in the newest version of Flash, so had to just continue working on in in Flash 5.

This is the length of an actual Wacky Race cartoon. No more, no less. And the animation style matches the original, so is more basic than today's styles. We wanted to match the original cartoons in terms of animation style, humour and music. All the music is original & is by Big Yellow Hand. It's done in the style of the Cantina band in Star Wars. All the voices either match the original Wacky Races cartoon (like Leia's) or their Star Wars counterparts (Like the Battle Droids, Jar Jar etc).

That was well put together and fully enjoyable, I remember the old TV show of the wacky racers, and you're found a way to bring it back to life, good job, I look forward to another if you make it.

Thank you. We won't be making another one as we're working on other stuff, but it'll be cool if someone else does one.

I use to love watching wacky races on cartoon network and of course I love Star Wars. This brought back tons of memories, it is really corny but wacky races was too so there's nothing to take away from this. You guys did a great job bringing both the Star Wars elements and cartoon show elements together. Gunna put this in my favorites!

You Reinvented a Classic!!

Awesome work!! I really enjoyed with what you did with the characters like Darth Dastardly and making the Ewoks like the Slag Bothers!!

Hmm so you used 5 for this Flashtoon and it holds up well. Way to go. good stuff!!

That was freaking amazing!!! I was a little hesitant to watch this mostly because I half expected it to only be about the junk new movies that all the 12 year old little fan boys are so eager to cream their jeans over but this was seriously well done. The animation was exactly like I remember it from the show. The sound was great. Everything about this reminds me of how awesome Wacky Races and Star Wars was meant to be. Kudos!
