One of Speed's fans is admiring the Mach Five when Speed walks into the garage. He says that he wanted to be a professional racer himself but didn't make it. He doesn't give his name. That evening, Speed and the gang are dining with Mr. Skyhigh from the Office of Space Development. Later, in a ghost town Skyhigh is trying to enlist Speed's help to protect the construction of an international space development base. The crews and equipment are being attacked by motorcycle Apaches. The Mach Five is needed to transport a shipment of uraniumtane, an element that will give nuclear missiles an explosive power greater than an H-bomb. Sparky, Trixie, Spritle and Chim Chim show up ready to help Speed. After Spritle is told he can't go along with Speed, he decides to play cowboys in the ghost town. Spritle encounters one of the motorcycle Apaches who was spying and manages to capture him. The Apache refuses to talk. Spritle's heroics win him and Chim Chim a place on the mission driving the chuck wagon. As the trip wears on, Spritle dreams of being a hero lawman in the old West. But an attack by the motorcycle Apaches disturbs his dream. The Apaches find only cans of food in the back and plan on stealing them, but Spritle's bawling makes them change their plans. As the convoy approaches Tabletop Mesa on the old Hammer and Chisel Trail, their location is radioed back to the Apaches' headquarters. Geronimo, the leader, orders a rendezvous at Bad Valley. The attack is underway and the trucks circle the Mach Five to protect it, but Speed soon finds himself on his own. Geronimo goes after Speed. The two meet. Geronimo and his motorcycle Apaches are only protecting their land from intruders. Realizing they are at an impasse, Speed and Geronimo return to fighting. Both the Mach Five and Geronimo's motorcycle crash. Geronimo's mask falls off, revealing that he is the fan that had met Speed at the track. As the son of a chief, he couldn't continue a racing career. There was only a box of rocks in the Mach Five. The uraniumtane was actually in the cans in the back of Spritle's chuck wagon.

      Speed figgers that the statues must be under some sort of remote control. Then, the statues fire pistols at him. When the smoke clears, Speed is okay, but then the assassins drop in. Speed fends off their attack, but he's met by Gat Gunsel, the leader of the local division of assassins. The organization is world-wide. Speed is ordered to walk to a statue. Behind the statue is a secret entrance to the assassins' headquarters. In a cell, the diplomats from the sightseeing boat are locked up. Speed watches the assassins demonstrate their skills. One shoots the pips out of a five of spades. Others walk through a fire; another cracks a rock with a karate chop; and another walks on the ceiling. Then the assassins show off their driving skills. The cars they drive are specialized weapons. Speed is taken to the leader of the entire assassin organization, Professor Anarchy. Speed is offered a job with the gang. Speed refuses. Professor Anarchy is going to let Speed be his 2,708th kill, a great honor. But Racer X interrupts and offers to "take care of the kid." Racer X introduces himself as a full-fledged member of the gang of assassins. Speed says, "And I thought you were decent, you're rotten!" Racer X gives Speed a beating and throws him in the cell with the diplomats. Speed says a few words promising revenge before he passes out. One of the diplomats remarks, "A nap will do him good." Trixie, Spritle and Chim Chim are walking along the shore when the homing robot appears. They follow it to the Mach Five. Some kids are playing in the car which had been abandoned. The kids trade the car for some candy. Trixie drives the car under the water as they look for Speed. The monster appears and chases the Mach Five. The car gets sucked into the monster, which is really a submarine. Spritle and Chim Chim hop in the trunk just before Trixie is captured. The Mach Five is put in the storeroom and Trixie joins Speed and the diplomats. Professor Anarchy is holding a meeting of the assassins. He briefs them on the plan to bomb the Peacemeal Conference. A bomb has been placed in the statue of a lion which will replace a statue similar to it at the meeting hall. The prisoners are taken from the cell and tied to stakes. Racer X is given the job of executioner. He shoots the ropes off the prisoners instead and turns the gun on Gunsel and Anarchy. More assassins drop into the room. The good guys all take shelter behind some sandbags. Spritle and Chim Chim arrive in the Mach Five. Speed and Trixie hop in the car and take off to thwart the bombing plan. Racer X shows the diplomats the way out and Spritle and Chim Chim hide aboard the submarine. Racer X finds a time bomb and sets it to blow up the headquarters. As Speed chases the assassin cars, the monster submarine flies overhead. Spritle hits the submarine pilot over the head with a wrench. Spritle and Chim Chim bail out. The submarine, out of control, crashes into the assassin gang. The time bomb explodes taking care of the headquarters and the weapons inside. Speed asks Racer X if he's some kind of secret agent. Racer X says, "No, Speed, I'm a professional racing driver, and your closest competitor."moreless

      Early morning, somewhere in Japan, a group of black three-wheeled cars approach a pagoda, which is called the Cupola Castle. Using some very sophisticated equipment, some very nimble men in black gain entry. They plant a miniature bomb in a suit of armor. During the Fujiyama Grand Prix, Racer X is gaining on Speed, who has the lead in the 30th lap. Unknown to Speed, Racer X is his older brother Rex who ran away from home years ago. Racer X comments that Speed's even better than the last time he raced against him. The Mach Five just edges out the Shooting Star to win the race. Pops says that he wishes Rex could hear about Speed's victory. Rex does know because he's standing nearby disguised as Racer X. Speed and Trixie are off to do some sightseeing. Spritle wants to go, but Pops promises to buy him a pound of candied kumquats to leave the kids alone. Speed turns on the radio as he's cruising. First the sports news which details Speed's victory in the Fujiyama Grand Prix. Notice the order of the stories; it must be a satellite feed from America ("...World War III started, nuclear holocaust imminent, but first today's baseball scores..."). Then there is the story about the assassination of President Crackbrow of the country of Aquaria, who was in Japan to attend the Peacemeal Conference. Crackbrow and his ministers were touring Cupola Castle when the radar bomb exploded. The mysterious black cars target Splendor Castle next. They use sleeper gas to knock out the guards. Speed pulls up and sees the sleeping guards. He can't figger it out, so he decides to investigate. As Speed approaches, the men in black throw bombs at him. The Mach Five flips on its side throwing Speed and Trixie out of the car. The trunk opens and Spritle and Chim Chim fall out. The four wake up and Speed tries to take care of the men with the homing robot. Speed takes out a few of them before the robot gets hit with a bomb. The mysterious cars take off and Speed tries to chase them. One of the cars drops a plate with spikes, and Speed uses the autojacks to jump over it. But the plate also jumps up and flattens the Mach Five's tires. As the Mach Five is incapacitated, the cars back up with flamethrowers aimed at the Mach Five. The guards wake up and chase the mysterious cars away. Speed and company are saved. One of the mysterious cars was left behind. Speed learns that it belongs to a gang of assassins hired to get rid of everyone attending the Peacemeal Conference. While everyone is enjoying a deer park (except for Chim Chim who is getting pummeled by a deer), Speed meets Racer X, who warns him not to get involved with police business. Speed thinks to himself, "Racer X, what a strange man, sometimes he acts like a friend." At a target range, Racer X is demonstrating his skills shooting skeet. His eye is admired by Gat Gunsel who says that Racer X can make a lot more money than he does racing. Trixie has been fixing herself up for three hours as everyone gets ready to do the town. While they're out driving, Speed stops to admire one of the local women and Trixie gets instantly jealous. The kids stop at a bridge to watch a sightseeing boat. Elsewhere, Racer X is surrounded by a group of assassins. Once he demonstrates his fighting skills, Gat Gunsel appears. He tells Racer X to watch the sightseeing boat. Suddenly a monster comes out of the water and a whirlpool swallows the boat. Speed dives the Mach Five into the water to investigate. Gunsel reveals his plan to Racer X. If the gang can assassinate all the world leaders, there will be no one left to run the countries, and his gang will be free to rule the world. Racer X agrees to join the gang of assassins. Speed fails to find the boat or the monster, but as he gets on shore, he spots the gang's cars taking off. He leaves the others behind as he goes after the gang alone. Speed follows the gang inside a building filled with statues. The statues come to life and they're armed with weapons all aimed at Speed. Will Speed be trapped in the hideout of the assassin gang?moreless

      Spritle and Chim Chim land in the river below. The palace guards stand high above calling for Prince Jam. Minister Offendem convinces the king to have Pops and company arrested for building a defective racing car. With Prince Jam unaccounted for, the king agrees that Prince Sugarin will be the successor to the throne. Offendem hardly disguises his pleasure. Pops and Trixie have been arrested. As they are being led away, Offendem asks about Speed. The guards say that he got away before he could be arrested. Back at the river, Chim Chim revives Spritle by pouring water on his face. Speed is up in a tree draped over a branch. Spritle tries to wake him by honking the Mach Five's horn and Chim Chim jumps on the branch. Speed falls to the ground. Spritle admits to Speed that he's not the prince. Speed realizes that the real prince is locked up in the hotel room. The prince is out on the streets trying to get some food. No one will believe his royal lineage, however. When he claims to be the prince, one of the palace guards asks, "You're the prince of what? The kingdom of dirt and grime?" When the prince threatens to throw the guards in jail, they pick him up, stick him in a vase, and roll the vase down some stairs. That night, the prince is huddled beneath a tree in a rain storm. He says that people shouldn't judge him because of the clothes he's got on. Cartoons have a lot more wisdom than many churches and corporations. Lighting strikes the prince's tree and he dashes for cover. He meets a very tall man which is the three bat-boys standing on one another's shoulders inside a huge trenchcoat. The prince shows the royal birthmark to prove his identity. Then the bat-boys move in to capture the prince. Meanwhile, Speed arrives at the hotel to find the prince gone. The tall man is there to question Speed. Speed runs off his mouth a bit too much and he's knocked out. Down below, some of the midget racers throw wrenches at the bat-boys, allowing Spritle and Chim Chim to escape. Spritle explains the whole story to his new friends. One of the bat-boys, who's been captured, tells about Prince Jam being held prisoner in Punchke Temple. With ten minutes left until the coronation, half of the racers escort Spritle to the palace, while the other half take off to rescue Prince Jam. As the crown is being lowered to Prince Sugarin's head, the coronation is disrupted by Spritle and his retinue. Pops and Trixie are released from jail. Spritle whispers to Pops that he's not the prince. Offendem is on the phone to the bat-boys. He's informed that he's got an imposter since the real prince is with them. As the crown is being lowered to Spritle's head, Offendem challenges Spritle to show the royal birthmark. At Punchke Temple, the bat-boys are getting ready to do away with Speed and the prince. Chim Chim, dressed up in bat-boy costume, releases Speed and the prince. Speed, Prince Jam and Chim Chim get away with the help of the racers. The real Prince Jam arrives just in time. Offendem breaks his scepter and drops it to the ground. The prince is crowned and bells ring to herald the new king. The radio has announced that Offendem has disappeared. Spritle is dejected at having missed the Baby Grand Prix by one day. Speed figgers out that, because of the time difference, Spritle will be eight years old and therefore eligible to compete. Pops builds a second mini-racer overnight, and Spritle and Prince Jam end up in a tie for first place. It's a good thing the Baby Grand Prix had to be postponed, otherwise Spritle wouldn't have been old enough.moreless

Meanwhile, Cornpone Brush, who financed the stunt, tells the clown that Twinkle will perform regardless of the hazardous weather. When Speed and Trixie arrive, Twinkle is already making her way across the Falls. Away from the crowd, Brush reads an old map. It identifies a secret cave in back of the Falls that leads to treasure. His thugs lower a gigantic pipeline into the Falls and Brush drives into it to discover the cave's entrance. Back at the stunt show, the wind causes Twinkle's car to plunge into the Falls, leaving her hanging onto one of the ropes. Speed drives the Mach 5 on two wheels down the remaining rope to rescuer Twinkle. He grabs her. The rope snaps and they plunge into the Falls. Attempting to drive along the bottom, Speed gets caught in a series of whirlpools. With little oxygen left in the cockpit, Speed and Twinkle pass out.moreless

      At the meeting of the League of Countries, the representative from Kapecapek announces his government's decision to close its borders to the outside world. An official proposes that if Kapecapek's racecar driver, named Kabala, beats Speed Racer, then its borders can remain closed. At the racetrack, Speed receives an invitation to the Fire Festival Race. Speed finds this peculiar because Kapecapek doesn't have a racetrack and Kabala has been missing for a long time. Nevertheless, Speed and company arrive in Kapecapek. They spot Racer X, who was also invited. That night Chief Zuma lets it be known that "the winner of the race will be bridegroom" to his granddaughter, Princess Sibana. He points out Speed as the probably winner. But when a jealous Trixie makes it clear that Speed is taken, another driver, Mr. Kadar, steps forward with his offer of matrimony. Later, Mr. Kadar captures the Princess and demands to know where the country's treasure is hidden. Speed comes to her rescue. The next day, the racers and their cars are carried by raft to a secret entrance in a volcanic mountain. The racers drive through a tunnel to an ancient city with bejeweled statues. The race is set to begin once the volcano erupts. An official announces that the cars will drive through 800 miles of volcanic tunnel. Whoever reaches the exit before the split in the mountain closes will win. Amid falling debris, an unsteady terrain, and the threat of impending molten lava, the drivers line up. Kabala shows up and the race begins.moreless
