        I used to watch it...think I liked it. That aside, I like other shows that make fun of it. lol

        An ep of Dexter's Laboratory did it. That was hilarious, and I don't even care for that show.

            Hey, has anyone here seen the original opening and heard the original song?

            It has the same tune as the English version, only the few lyrics it had were changed.

            Just change "Speed" to "Mach". lol "Mach mach, go go...mach mach go go..mach mach go go go~~~~" lol

            The ending is exactly the same as the Japanese version...minus the "Go Speed Racer" part...and has "Mach" instead.

                    That was 1 of my favorite show growing up.

                    They got a game based on it at shockwave.com

                      Make that two of us. The only thing I liked about Speed Racer was the opening theme song. The show itself was kind of boring.

                        The thing I remember most vividly is how quickly they talked.

                        "Wow we're really going to have to use our heads to think of this one. What should we do?"

                                remember the geico commercial with the speed racers not too long ago?

                                Trixie: The Bridge is out!

                                Speed Racer: The Bridge is out?

                                Trixie: yeah, but don't worry...I just saved a bunch of money by switching to Geico.

                                Speed Racer: -sound and a shocked face-

                                  but that has nothing to do with that 1989 Remake that some people were talking about.

                                    yeah, but I mentioned it because they used the caracters. I didn't know from what cartoon it was at the time. I didn't watch speed racers, because I was an infant at the time. So..yeah.

                                        I don't remember this show, but for those who do, I think the animation looks to "American" and too modern. Trixie went from being a dark-haired girl to being a blond? Wha?

                                        It's like they totally redid the whole show and just left the old names attached.

                                        What is popular isn't always right; What is Right isn't always popular.
