Editorial Reviews

In 1967, "Speed Racer" made its debut, igniting the first Japanese anime cartoon to ever succeed in the United States. Originally titled "Mach GoGoGo," the English-dubbed series "Speed Racer" soon became an instant classic. Four generations later, it continues to impact American anime and rev up the hearts and imaginations of over 45 million fans as one of the most beloved animated series of all time. Speed Racer fans can now enjoy the incredible "Speed Racer The Complete Classic Collection" and be thrilled as Speed, the intrepid young race car driver, races for the flag, chases notorious villains, and pursues fast-action adventures. Join the full-throttle excitement with an unforgettable supporting cast including Pops Racer, Trixie, Spritle, Chim Chim, and the mysterious Racer X. "Go, Speed Racer! Go!"

5.0 out of 5 stars No bad language. Don't be swayed. September 19, 2011
I think I just read the funniest review ever on Amazon. It was written by WinfieldLizzie on this product. They claim that the "C" word is used in an episode & that there is probably other bad language. Well, I wasn't even going to bother looking it up, but was going to say that they must have misheard the word, as it would never appear in a TV cartoon from the 60s. But my curiosity got the best of me & I threw in the DVD. I went to the spot they mentioned & put on my closed captioning. If WinfieldLizzie had done this, it would have saved them a lot of trouble & saved them from looking like an idiot. The word in question is actually the word "con". Truth be told, it sounds a bit like the "C" word, if you're listening for it. Anyway, feel free to buy this set, as there is nothing offensive in it. I would have commented on WinfieldLizzie's review, but they didn't allow commenting on them. Understandable. Too bad their bad review affects the product's rating, as it is brought down due to stupidity.

As for the quality of the DVDs, they are top notch as far as video & audio. There is some speed up in some episodes to fit them all on the discs, but it is hardly noticeable. The packaging is the new sleeved package that have been seen recently in discount DVDs. In my opinion, they're well worth the price. If you like the show, get it. Period.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great collection!!! December 12, 2008
Verified Purchase
I have been waiting for this Speed Racer complete collection for years. Don't let the recently released movie deter you from getting this excellent collection of cartoons. My 8 year oold son and myself love watching these old cartoons. It brings back a lot of happy memories from my childhood to see these again.

5.0 out of 5 stars Speed Racer The Complete Classic Series Collection November 3, 2008
Purchased this Series for my two and half year old son. He is enjoying the series as much as I did as a child. Quality of the product was great but could have been packaged better as the collectable tin was bent from shipping.

5.0 out of 5 stars speed racer cartoons January 7, 2010
Verified Purchase
I recently purchased the speed racer series for my 3 year old son. Its a great set of dvd`s and actually gives the background history of this series for speed racer fans.Its funny but when you watch these cartoons the topics of some of the plots ring true today. the only thing not so nice for a little child is they are pretty violent but i think they were made for older kids not for a three year old.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great series, lame packaging October 8, 2008
By Mark C.

5 stars for the series, 1 star for the package...
I thought the Mach 5 case would be cool, but when I opened the package I saw how HUGE it was - of course it doesn't fit on my shelf. Also, the DVDs are packed in a cardboard sleeve that scratches them when you pull them out! I ended up putting the discs in standard cases, and left the Mach 5 on top of my shelf as a decoration.

5.0 out of 5 stars A cartoon way ahead of its time. February 1, 2012
Verified Purchase
Creative writing, incredible characters, top notch animation (for its time), great voice actors, thunderous action sequences, imaginative art and design and amazing atmosphere lead to one thing: a legendary, iconic, revolutionary, pop cultured filled and amazing cartoon that can never be duplicated. I grew up watching "Speed Racer", "Ultraman", "Jonny Quest", "Land of The Lost", the "Banana Splits" and "Valley of The Dinosaurs". "Speed Racer" is a multi-generational, multi-cultural event in the world of television and cartoons and it is second to none. Rather it be the haunting "GRX" episode, the stunt-filled episodes with the "Car Acrobatic Team", the haunting "X-3", the brutality of the car wrestling match, the mayhem of the "Mammoth Car" or the destruction of the "Monster Car". This cartoon blows away almost anything out in the last 30 years. My children love this cartoon too. 10/10.

5.0 out of 5 stars Speed Racer: It is what it is. October 18, 2009
Verified Purchase
This was a cartoon that I watched in the mornings in the '80s as a kid. This cartoon was featured alongside Voltron and RoboTech on the old WPTT-22 UHF station. Little did I know that such programming was planting the seeds for my alter ego. ;-)

It's not the best animated cartoon and it can be very kitschy (the '60s influence does date the cartoon). In regards to interesting mechanical designs this alongside the other two cartoons made me appreciate how seriously animators took their work. And let's not forget the toys. Although, sadly, I never did see any Speed Racer toys alongside the Voltron, RoboTech and Transformers gear. But I was a kid and didn't know much about shopping at the time.

Still, it's a nice little cartoon. The version I received was packaged in a plastic dual-disc DVD case with two extra holders added to hold the extra discs (one in the front and back cover and one disc on each side of the extra holders). I'm glad I didn't get the collectible "car". That would've taken up too much room! ;-)

All the episodes of the cartoon are here along with "The History of Speed Racer" featurette, the making of "Speed Racer: The Next Generation" and an episode of that aforementioned series. Fortunately no mention is made of The Wachowski Brothers' movie.

5.0 out of 5 stars SPEED RACER GO GO GO October 22, 2008
!!!A great item at a fantastic price!!! I picked up mine for $32 and it was the complete series with the episodes having the complete 1960s beginings and endings and as a bonus it included the Speed Racer Next Generation movie...
All the disks come packed in a very well made Tin Speed Racer car so for the price you can not beat it...
