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 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.

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.

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.

this is awesome!

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

I suppose that the older people would enjoy more about this awesome production. As a fan of Dastardly and Muttley I have enjoyed a lot with this movie. I would love to see you guys making a review of "Dastardly and Muttley in Their Flying Machines", but I suppose this won't be possible since the tweens around here have born in the Pokemon era.
Anyway, If sometime in the future I have the chance I will try to make a game of "..Their Flying Machines".

Glad you liked. We did toy with the idea of making a Flying Machines flash, but we've working on other stuff so won't have the time. It'll be interesting to see your version if you do it.
