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).

Dude...

That was brilliant. You could see that there was a lot of effort and work involved and you deserve a lot of credit for that. I know some people are saying its too long but i think its good that you tried to make it as close to the tv series as you can.
The concept was genius and i liked the way the story progressed (especially the classic star wars moments referenced in some of the jokes).
My only negative point would be the narration. It wasnt really very enthusiastic and i think that hurt the video a bit.
Overall tho, it was amazing, well done.

Brilliant!

This was an amazing idea, I would have just settled with the intro, but no, you went all the way. LOL, takes me back to one of the few cartoons my ADD childhood self couldn't sit through.

Takes Me Back

You really got the spirit of Wacky Racers right down to the mark. I see absolutely no negatives, and I really enjoyed this. Are you guys considering making more Wacky Pod Races?

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

Pod racing is one of the best things about star wars. Very well drawn and animated.
