A Great Cartoon That Was Sadly Short Lived!, 10 February 1999
Author: John Barnum (bar32350@delta.obu.edu) from Arkadelphia, Arkansas

I can vaguely remember Pole Position as a child! But, I distinctly remember the theme song: POLE POSITIOOON, WHOA,WHOA,WHOA,WHOA,WHOA! It was an exciting cartoon that was based on the classic Atari Game by Namco. Dan Darret with the help of Wheels and the gang would receive guidance and missions from Dr. Zachary & Teacher and fight off the baddies, but always make it in time to qualify for the next race! Great early eighties cartoon. It's not manufactured anymore, but you might be able to trade with someone over the internet! If you're a fan of the Animated genre and racing/adventure, check out Pole Position!!
