    How do you write a review for a 60s/70s Japanese TV Show dubbed with the folks from Rocky & Bulwinkle? I grew up on SPEED RACER! I rushed home from school everyday to watch it on a fuzzy UHF channel (precable - I am old). I purchased the DVDs when they came out. The cost of a couple seasons was more then the boxed blu set (and takes up less space). I am disappointed the 'toys' of the DVD sets are gone but that's why it's cheaper I'm sure. For those who care - the original Japanese track is there. I love the cheesiness of the U.S. dub but you can choose to hear them how they were in their original language. The price is right, don't put off buying this set. Shelf space - 1 blu case vs the original 5 or so DVD cases. Keep the toys from the DVDs, and save space (plus TRUHD sound)

    Classic from the 60's

    Speed Racer was what I rushed home from Middle School for in the early 70's. It had been on for several years on the stations out of Dallas, Texas and I'd discovered it in 1970. It was a fun and at times freaky show that I didn't at first know came from Japan. So when it was put out on disk from Funimation I just had to get it. Best Buy had a great price and I had a rewards coupon. Highly recommended.

    No-brainer upgrade over previous DVDs

    These are the well-known classic English language dubs from the 60s. There is a bit of confusion due to the mistaken listing on the back of the box claiming a Japanese language dub is included. It is NOT, but apparently there will be a future release which will be of the original Japanese versions. What this release does, for a give-away price is thorougly improve on the rather dim looking DVD releases in the interesting but cumbersome custom packaging.

    Pre-release images of this set showed it containing Japanese language track options which have sadly been dropped upon release. Supposedly Funimation is going to release the original, uncut Japanese version Mach GoGoGo later this year in its own set. While the picture quality here is nice, it’s too bad they didn’t make it a true “complete” package and are forcing us to double dip to get the full history...

    I have very found memories as a young boy growing up and Speed and the whole crew were a part of it. I couldn't wait to get home from school, finish my homework, and settle in for Speed Racer. This set definitely brings back fond memories and now I'll try to share those memories with my daughter! A must have for those of you similar to me that want to relive those days gone by!

    Great cartoon from the past! I remember watching this when I was a little kid eating Froot Loops before going to school. I loved it then, and it still holds good now! The transfer is very good for something from the '60s. Even if you didn't see this series from years on years ago, it will still be fun to watch!!! Go and buy this!

    Finally one of the BEST cartoons in history. I remember being a kid running home to watch him who can forget Speed,Trixie,Spridle ,Sparky and CHIM-Chim. As soon as I got these I raced home and fell back to the good ole days. I admit it did seem a little corny but they pretty much stand the test of time. I would highly recommend these animated classics.

    Enjoyed watching this with my kids. The jazzy opening really grabs your attention. My older kid remembers the hype I had for Speed Racer when they came out with that abomination remake in the 90's. He was like this is horrible, well it was. Fast forward to this Blu-Ray, he gets it, and so does my younger son.
