The Perils of Penelope Pitstop is a 2018 American animated television series created by Rebecca Himot and Tramm Wigzell. It is a reboot/remake of the 1969 Hanna-Barbera animated series The Perils of Penelope Pitstop.

The show debuted on Boomerang's SVOD service in the United States, and premiered internationally in 2018. The Perils of Penelope Pitstop was picked up for a second season.

Plot

The show features the most successful characters of Wacky Races, namely Penelope Pitstop and the members of I.Q. Ickly, who take on the role of heroes.

In each episode, Penelope's guardian, Sylvester Sneekly, attempts to take Penelope's inheritance for himself by attacking her in the guise of the masked villain The Hooded Claw. Aided by his pair of near identical henchmen who always speak in unison, the Bully Brothers, he concocted needlessly Goldbergian plots to kill Penelope. Even though the I.Q. Ickly rescue Penelope, she often needed to save the Ickly from the unintended effects of their attempts to rescue her. While Penelope was curiously helpless whenever The Hooded Claw grabbed her, once he left her tied up for his fiendish plans to take effect, she usually became resourceful and ingenious, sometimes coming up with spontaneous and creative methodologies to escape her peril.
