This rare anime from 1997 is a great re-telling of the Speed Racer tale, with really excellent, beautiful animation and a lot of style. The villains are more evil this time around, and the Mach 5 never looked better! The animation is classic 90's Japanese style, and everyone has those big, wet looking eyes. Go Mifune is an even more handsome bastard now than he was in the 67 version, but I wish they didn't update the look of the 60's Trixie so much; she was a bit cuter before. And Spritle looks like a little demon now, instead of a chubby brat. I can't imagine any fan of the original not having an absolute blast with this 90's remake. I only wish it wasn't so hard to find. There is no excuse for that, especially considering that the wretched "Speed Racer: Next Generation" is so readily available. So far I have tracked down only 13 episodes. Excellent anime that will please fans of the classic show, mainly because it is so respectful of the source material. All "Mach GoGoGo" junkies need to track this one down.
