Fender Bender 500 is a series of cartoon shorts featuring iconic Hanna-Barbera characters racing in monster trucks and is considered a 1990s update of the classic Wacky Races (1968) series. It is historically significant as it would be the last time that Top Cat and Dick Dastardly would be voiced by the original actors, Arnold Stang and Paul Winchell, before their passing

Release History[edit | edit source]

It was originally broadcast as a segment of Wake, Rattle and Roll, a Hanna-Barbera produced live-action children's show. The first season was aired in syndication and then afterward moved to the Disney Channel and re-named Jump, Rattle and Roll. The full show was also aired on Network Ten in Australia whilst the animated segments were aired as part of TV Mayhem in the UK.

The only home video release (currently identified) was in Japan where the entire series was released on both VHS and Laserdisc in six volumes.[1] Volume 3 appeared on YouTube, without English titles, in March 2020. The English language version of most episodes and the other five volumes are currently considered lost media.
