Speed Racer drives the fabulous Mach 5 in race after race, although the prize money isn't his true goal: he seeks to be the best racer in the world, and to defeat the mysterious Racer X (not knowing that Racer X is actually his long lost older brother, Rex Racer)! The races don't take place upon the boring circular tracks that one might expect; instead, they tend to involve the countryside, and rough and dangerous terrain. This is where the Mach 5's special features, such as super traction tires and jumping struts come in very handy. Speed must also deal with villains ranging from unscrupulous racers to thieves and spies, but he has the help of Trixie, his little brother Spridle, and the pet monkey ChimChim along the way.

As old as Speed Racer is its still a blast to watch. Its fun too see all the ways they tried to preseve the budget by moving the camera around in a panorama style and using stills of Speeds face while we hear the voiceover voice speeds thoughts.  For being so old the show is actually somewhat violent with many fatal car crashes and explosions.   read more
