Status: Partially Lost

The New Adventures of Speed Racer (or simply Speed Racer, according to the title card) is a 1993 American reboot of Tatsunoko Production's 1967 series Speed Racer, developed by Speed Racer Enterprises, Fred Wolf Films, and PANGEA, the latter two best known for their work with the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles franchise.[1] Due to conflicts with Warner Bros, who held theatrical rights to the franchise, The New Adventures of Speed Racer would only last 13 episodes before being cancelled. Of the 13 episodes, only 8 ever made it home video, and 3 episodes remain lost in their original form. All 13 episodes have appeared with a Russian dub, reportedly from a Slovenian DVD, however, this cannot be verified as the source.
