The cartoon The Adventures of Penelope Pistop was produced by Hanna & Barbera in September 1969, which was based on the American comic Wacky Races - The crazy races. Neither "The Adventures of Penelope Pitstop"(The Perils of Penelope Pitstop in the original translation) the star is a young, blonde heiress always dressed in pink who runs aboard an extravagant pink car called "Pussycat", more concerned with her makeup than with everything that happens around her. Her estate is administered by the meek Sylvester Snookley who, under the guise of the very bad Masked Claw, tries to kill Penelope to inherit her assets. But her plans are always thwarted by the Band of the Anthill: 7 dwarf gangsters who invariably save the girl with the help of their car. The charming Penelope finds danger at every pit stop, pursued by Sylvester Sneekly … until the well-known Ant Hill Mob manages, so to speak, to give her a hand. But don't be fooled by the sweet voice of the seductive Penelope. This damsel in distress is able to fend for herself, aided by her stylish and dynamic boots! If you loved the crazy rides of the Wacky Races, you will certainly love Penelope Pitstop, the girl who possesses beauty and intelligence (as well as the ability to reveal the double identity of Sneekly). During the crazy races Wacky Races, Penelope Pitstop, the gang of the anthill and all the pilots wear out the tires on the track and do not spare themselves continuous rear-end collisions against their opponents, in order to cross the finish line first.
