( DePatie- Freleng Enterprises / CBS-TV / Sept. 9, 1973 through Aug. 31, 1975)

The Comets, a Roller Derby team led by Barnaby Bailey, travel the world competing in various events and also taking part in a treasure hunt style quest to win a million dollars.


Their opponents include "The Black Hats", "The Broomer Girls", "The Cosmic Rays", "The Dr. Jekylls/Mr. Hydes", "The Duster Busters", "The Gargantuan Giants", "The Gusta Pastas", "The Hairy Madden Red Eyes", "The Mystery Mob", "The Ramblin' Rivets", "The Rock N Rollers", "The Roller Bears", "The Roller Coasters", "The Stone Rollers", "The Texas Flycats", and "The Yo-Ho-Hos".


The competitors criss-cross the world, from England to Australia, from Japan to Romania, from Hungary to Holland - and more! The races are excitedly described by Gabby the Reporter, in a helicopter piloted by Dooter Roo, who follow the adventures of BAILEY'S COMETS as the team somehow manages to get into troublesome tangles with colorful characters in the exotic locales.


Each cartoon ends with one of the skating teams finding the rhyming clues revealing the next destination.

The series was created by Joe Ruby and Ken Spears. It consisted of 16 half-hours (2 episodes per show).
