When I was a little girl,I remember always racing home from school because I wanted to make sure I arrived home by 3:30. I didn't want to miss a minute of Speedracer! I don't know what i liked more -Speed or that wonderful Mach5. I always thought it was such a great cartoon but I can never find it on any channels.What a shame!I really miss Speed and his adventures with the mach5

Ah, yes, Speedracer, most of America's introduction to the fine art of Japanese anime. I remember it in the '70's, I wouldn't have to watch it, but it certainly was better than much of the alteratives when it was on. It sure showed the difference, and superiority, of their anime to our Saturday morning fare. Then came the space opera with the great space battleships - I'm sure someone remembers the name. I then ran into an anime club & was introduced to more shows that probably won't ever make it to the U.S. market.

Hi, I thought I was the only one that remembered that! Now that the movie is coming out, we'll see alot more about him! I posted a discussion about a year ago, and never did get any responses on it! My thing I kept wondering was why Speed never thought to look in his trunk on the chance that Spritle and ChimChim would be in there!
