    I love this show. Too bad it comes on too early. wtf, they do not air it 'five hours a day or something'. You probably just didn't give it a chance. A lot of people here haven't. Forget the original series and just enjoy this cartoon for what it is.

    This show is CRAP! dont watch it



    i cant belive they put this on my favorite channel Nicktoons network. now its airing like 5 hours a day or more. i never saw the old Speed Racer but i saw one episode of this show and it WAS GARBAGE



    Why did they HAVE to put it on nicktoons network. I HATE IT i have a feeling this show and three delivery is gonna replace alot of the good classic shows in the channel



    Nicktoons network is one of the best place for the old classic nicktoons like Invader zim, corneil and bernie, etc... Now with this show on the air i have a feeling they might take some of it away.moreless
  • A horrible spin-off of a great show!

    Nicktoons Network did a horrible spin-off of the great anime series, Speed Racer! It's obvious their cheap ideas for the show came to them after watching the movie since it premiered so soon after! And worst of all, only Speed and Chim-Chim are the only two characters still here from the original series! Plus, Speed and Chim-Chim are not even themselves! They also try making the show special with three-dimensional effects that are not needed AT ALL. Face it, this show is just a cheesy spin-off of Speed Racer that is simply pointless. I can't believe it even made it onto television!



    FINAL GRADE: Fmoreless
  • Speed Racer: The Next Generation followes the life of Speed Racer's sun who is also named Speed. He goes to the racing acadamy and meets his new friends, Coner and Lucy. This is definitly a good show for a fan of the origonal Speed Racer cartoon.moreless

    A Very good show indeed. I first have to complement the writers of the Three Part Movie (aired seperatly) "Comet Run". Keeping us at the edge of our seat with action and adventure everywhere. This episode is not only a good plot, but a good umm... yeah, plot! But overall, the show is a bunch of fun for anyone that likes racing video games, movies, and TV shows. Speed Racer: The Next Generation is definitly worth watching. So if you feel like seeing a really LAZER AWESOME shows, tune into Nicktoons Network every friday at 6:00 ET. Trust me, you WONT be dissapointed!moreless
  • People don't give this show a fair chance.

    I am a massive fan of this show, and I love most of the episodes. I mean, what kid dosn't like Speed Racer? this is just a continuation of the original series, and it dosn't do anything to mess with the magic of the classic series. it ADDS to the Speed Racer expeariance, and that's why kids (like me, even though i'm in the 7th grade) are giving this show awesome reveiws and are huge fans of it, while the adults who grew up with the classic look down on it from the start, and as a result, give it terible reveiws. This show stars Speed (Jr. that is, he is NOT to be confused with the orginal Speed, who we later learn is his father.) who is a kid who wants to be the best racecar driver in the world. also stars are Conor (nerdy mechanic, he takes the place of sparky) Lucy (Speed's "girlfriend", she takes the place of Trixie) and Chim Chim (a robot monkey who takes the place of... well, Chim Chim!) and, Peter Fernandez voices Headmaster Spritle. (He voiced the original Speed Racer and Racer X. talk about icing on the cake!) The series gets corney at times, and it dosn't take itself seriously, and the animation might look weird at first glance, but it's the best Speed Racer series for first time fans.moreless
