When I was a kid, Speed Racer was the show I would never miss when I came home from school. Sure it was violent, but the action was what made this show what it was. Also, the variety of villians gave the show some color that was lacking from the American cartoons that came out at the same time. The action and the characters of Speed, Trixie, Sparky, Sprytle and Chim Chim that made this show a classic.
