Speed Racer: The best cartoon ever!!!!
30 August 2003 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

I watched this cartoon as a kid and it was one of my favorites. It was aired right after Johnny Sokko & his Flying Robot 4:00pm after school on channel 41 in 1969-79(Kansas City local tv market). Great opening credits and great show A to Z. I like the Alpine Race and the Challenge race with the skull head driver. Snake Oiler is my favorite bad driver & racer X is the coolest of the bunch, even over Speed to a degree, Enjoy....
