5.0 out of 5 stars Must own for any Speed Racer fan November 8, 2006
Of all five DVD sets, this is the best set to own. No, I didn't see any special features, but it's well worth the price for the last three episodes in the series.

In "The Trick Race" Speed once again races the Car Acrobatic Team. But that's not what made this cartoon episode one of TV Guide's most memorable 50 programs. If you don't know why, watch the episode and pay attention to the ending.

"Race Around the World" Parts I and II are the last of the original Speed Racer episodes. From the very beginning of the series Speed wanted to become the greatest racing car driver in the world. Find out if he can accomplish his goal while being an honorable man. Excellent way to wrap the series!

If you are new to the Speed Racer series, you will probably want to pick up the first DVD set too. "The Great Plan" and "Challenge of the Masked Racer" (the first four episodes, two parts each) pretty much set up the rest of the series and explain all the special features of the Mach 5.

This was my favorite cartoon series when I was growing up. I couldn't wait to get home from school to watch the next thrilling episode of Speed Racer. I hope you enjoy it as well!

4.0 out of 5 stars Speed Racer Ends With a Bang March 26, 2007
This is the last entry in a five volume set collecting all 52 episodes of the 1960s Speed Racer. This series has a very self-contained air, with a beginning, a middle and an end. It begins with Speed's first professional race and ends when he becomes world champion. With all the episodes now available to fans on DVD, we can evaluate the series as a whole. And I am forced to the conclusion that while the beginning and the end rock, the middle fairly sucks.

As the series progressed I suspect the creators began to run out of money because episode quality dropped immensely. Most of the truly excellent eps, "The Great Plan", "Challenge of the Masked Racer", "The Race Against the Mammoth Car", "The Most Dangerous Race", "The Fire Race" and "The Fastest Car on Earth" are two-parters (or in the case of "The Most Dangerous Race" the show's only three-parter) clustered in the series' early days; they're all on Volumes 1 and 2 of the set. Toward the middle/end (the stuff on Volumes 3 and 4) we get a bunch of single ep stories with artwork, scripting, and even the amount of animation all noticably inferior to earlier efforts.

Which brings us to Volume 5 (the last eight eps). Episode quality on this DVD varies wildly, containing both Speed's absolute worst adventure and one of his very best. Other eps range from mediocre to good, with, thankfully, rather more of the latter.

I've always had a weak spot for "The Great Car Wrestling Match" (Episode #45). True, its animation is limited, but the artwork is good, and the storyline amazingly strong. If I may be allowed to seemingly digress for a moment: one reason so many fans love "The Race Against the Mammoth Car" I feel is that it's one of the few times in the series Speed uses the Mach 5 offensively against another vehicle.

3.0 out of 5 stars Misleading photo and description March 6, 2007
By B K Mom
Amazon's DVD does NOT come with the collectible miniature license plate (even though the photo shows it and the description mentions it). Save yourself the trouble of getting and then having to return it(like I did). I went and bought mine for $2 less than Amazon's price (and with the license plate) at Best Buy.

5 stars for Speed Racer vol 5.

1 star for false item description


Averages out to 3 stars

5.0 out of 5 stars Remembered fun returns July 5, 2008
Verified Purchase
Was Speed Racer campy? Of course it was. That's what made it so fun! You could laugh every time Racer X showed up and the narrator reiterated that he was Speed's older brother, Rex, in disguise. Then there was the way they spoke almost too fast to understand. How can you not love something like that? The funniest thing is Speed was usually the one in distress and not Trixie.

This series was a lot of fun when I was a kid and is just as much fun now that I'm all grown up.

3.0 out of 5 stars Speed Racer Vol. 5 January 21, 2008
Video was of excellent quality, however I'm a little disappointed that the video was not in the original packaging. Hence the commerative license plate was not included with the shipping content.Speed Racer, Vol. 5
