Fast cars and chases were popular on cartoon shows ever since Wacky Races debuted in 1968, and this show was one of an endless parade of imitations from Hanna-Barbera.
Motormouse and Autocat was featured originally on the Cattanooga Cats show and featured the voice of Marty Ingels as Autocat, with Dick Curtis voicing Motormouse.
The show also included a segment called It’s the Wolf with the voice of Paul Lynde as Mildew the wolf, who was constantly pursuing a poor defenceless lamb called Lambsy (voiced by Daws Butler).
Lambsy’s saviour was Bristlehound (voiced by Allan Melvin) – “Bristlehound’s my name, saving sheep’s my game”.
Lambsy would yelp his famous tagline, “It’s the wool-uff! It’s the wool-uff!” and Bristle Hound would come to the rescue, apprehending Mildew and pounding him.
