The series features the return of some of the characters from the original Wacky Races program: Dick Dastardly, Muttley, Penelope Pitstop, Peter Perfect and the Gruesome Twosome. More than half of the original characters do not return.[6] Several new characters were introduced, including I. Q. Ickly, Brick Crashman, P. T. Barnstorm, and Pandora Pitstop.

While the reboot is based on the original series, it also focuses on the Racers' personal lives; storylines are added and there usually is no actual winner or loser at the end of each race. There is also meta-humor and fourth wall breaking.



  • Dick Dastardly the Third and Muttley (voiced by Peter Woodward and Billy West): In this modern series, Dick Dastardly is still up to his usual trickery and cheating activities, though is now often badgered into either being nice or not cheating by Peter Perfect. Unlike before, his appearance is predominantly purple in color instead of blue, red and purple. Muttley, however, has undergone virtually no changes aside from his outward appearance, still either snickering or grumbling. In "Mother Drives Best", it is revealed that Dick Dastardly is actually the son/descendant of Dick Dastardly the Second, the original Dick Dastardly from the original Wacky Races series, who is also the husband of Delilah Dastardly, who taught Dick Dastardly the Third, her own son, how to cheat. However, in "Grandfather Knows Dast", his grandfather is actually revealed to be Dick Dastardly the First, the original Dick Dastardly from the original Dastardly and Muttley in Their Flying Machines series who's also the father of Dick Dastardly the Second, the original Dick Dastardly from the original Wacky Races series.
  • Penelope Pitstop (voiced by Nicole Parker): Another original character, Penelope Pitstop has undergone the most changes from the original, both in appearance and outlook. While more assertive and much less of a damsel in distress than the original, she is still often the goody-two-shoes of the group and still talks like a Southern belle. Like before, her appearance is predominantly pink with hearts.
  • Peter Perfect (voiced by Diedrich Bader): Like Dastardly and Muttley, largely unchanged from the original, although he is a bit more taunting of Dastardly than before. His appearance is predominantly orange and red.
  • Tiny and Bella – the Gruesome Twosome (voiced by Billy West and Tom Kenny) are the other characters from the original series, and are the closest to their original versions in almost every respect.
  • Ignatius Quinton "I. Q." Ickly (voiced by Jill Talley): A new character who is often called a "walking encyclopaedia" by Dastardly and has little social capability. Like Professor Pat Pending before him, he is a genius with a large amount of inventions that he uses throughout the race. As he is only 10 years old and he does not actually drive, his car drives itself due to it being a sentient AI.



  • Pandora Pitstop (voiced by Nicole Parker): A new character. Penelope's twin sister and frequent guest Racer. She is similar to Penelope, except her outfit is predominantly purple and is often meaner and more underhanded than even Dastardly is. She often allies with Dastardly, but usually for her own ends.
  • Captain Dash, Polly, Bugsy, Bluebeard and Davey Bones (voiced by Billy West and Tom Kenny): A gang of pirates that often steal gigs from Dastardly.


  • Brick Crashman (voiced by Christopher Judge): The announcer for the Wacky Races.
  • Pearl Tricia "P. T." Barnstorm (voiced by Jill Talley): The owner and sponsor for the Wacky Races.
