Trivia

The show was so successful that it aired on all three major networks. It aired first run on CBS until 1975. Reruns aired on ABC in 1975-76 (later replacing Uncle Croc's Block), then on NBC, replacing the canceled McDuff, The Talking Dog, from November 27, 1976 until September 3, 1977 (thus completing the cycle of being on all three networks). It was then picked up by the USA Network for their Cartoon Express shows from 1982 to about 1990. Like most cartoon series produced by Hanna-Barbera in the 1970s, Speed Buggy contained a laugh track (later removed for repeats on Cartoon Network and Boomerang). See more »

All I can say is....the bad ages for cartoons.
26 December 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Arelen Golonka and Mel Blanc must have been struggling with this..sex, drugs, cards, hippies, oh my, as Judy Garland said forty years earlier.

I'm just surprised the kids didn't't sing any songs here. The other shows: Scooby/Josie/Pebbles and Bamm Bamm, then Funky Phantom, Butch Cassidy, Clue Club, and (bringing up Judy Garland's exclamation from Wizard again) Oh My, Goober.

Bad timing, bad design, no wonder it lasted for only 17 episodes one season, and characters using drug abuse (going back to the late 60s Banana Splits and Cattanooga Cats, though those early efforts were admittedly a bit better), caused HB, and later the Smurf like cartoons next decade, 1980s, to bring HB and Filmation down to the worst level anyone could. Thank god for Beavis and Butthead and the late 1920sa-early 1960s. Though I did like "Wait Till your Father Gets Home" & "Inch High Private High". :D
