"Drat, drat and double drat!" -Dastardly's catchphrase.

Dick Dastardly is a primary character and major antagonist in Hanna-Barbera's Wacky Races franchise. He is best known for cheating and pulling tricks on the other racers alongside his distinctly wheezing companion, Muttley.

Why He Rocks

  1. He is one of many characters who people fondly remember from Wacky Racers.
  2. He is a very comically entertaining villain, similar to a certain fancily dressed pharmacist.
  3. In Wacky Races Forever, when asked by Muttley why they always stopped to cheat, Dastardly answered that, as the villains, they absolutely had to.
  4. He is a spokesman for the Boomerang channel.
  5. He is not above self-deprecating humor.
    • This is best seen in the reboot, where he jokingly claims that he's the worst cartoon character ever made since Scrappy-Doo. Ouch!


  • He and Penelope Pitstop are the only two Wacky Races character to have their own spin-off series.
  • He is the main antagonist in Warner Animation Group's Hanna Barbera cinematic crossover film, SCOOB!, voiced by Jason Issacs.
