Dastardly and Muttley in Their Flying Machines

Dastardly and Muttley in Their Flying Machines was a Saturday morning cartoon produced by Hanna-Barbera from 1969-1971.

The show features Dick Dastardly and Muttley, the comic villains from Wacky Races, as World War I flying aces and members of the Vulture Squadron, a crew of aviators on a mission to stop a homing pigeon named Yankee Doodle Pigeon from delivering messages to the other side. Each half-hour episode typically features two stories, plus "Wing Dings" (short gags) and "Magnificent Muttley" (Muttley's Walter Mitty-style daydreams).

  1. I just wanted to say thank you for this great site!! I am a child of the seventies and was thrilled to share some memories with my daughter who is eight. Now she is hooked on H.R Puffinstuff and Lidsville. Thank you so much!

  3. You gotta love this cartoon, because I also love it. ^^

    BTW I'd noticed something: Dastardly has taken so many falls from out of the air—so why is he not dead yet? *hollow laughter*
