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).

Wow

It was like watching the original cartoon but with Star Wars added to it. Another one would be awesome.

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

Very, Very, Enjoyable

A lot of effort and time was put into this - and it shows. Well done! The only thing I can recommend is perhaps improving the soundtrack.

All the music is original & is by Big Yellow Hand. It's done in the style of the Cantina band in Star Wars. It would have been nice if we could've just blasted the music, but if it was any louder then you wouldn't have been able to hear the voices.

Sweet

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.
