Speed Racer - Details, Extras and New Art for Complete Series Set

6-Disc set coming in October

Posted by Gord Lacey
    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!"
Following up on the recent news of a Speed Racer complete series set comes confirmation from the studio, more details, and better artwork. As previously mentioned, this 6-disc set will include all 52 episodes (1288 mins) of the classic series on 5 discs, with a sixth disc holding bonus material. What bonus material? How about this:
  • "The History of Speed Racer" Featurette
  • A Look at Speed Racer: The Next Generation
  • Bonus Episode of Speed Racer: The Next Generation
The set includes Full Frame (1.33:1) episodes with an English stereo track (with Closed Captions). The set will be out on October 7 for a suggested retail price of $49.98.

Here's a better look at the Mach 5 packaging for the set. Slick!
