Speed Racer Enterprises' rights to the franchise expired on May 31, 2011. After two lawsuits issued in 2012 between Tatsunoko and SRE were dismissed, the former company announced in a press release issued on December 6, 2014 that all rights to ''Speed Racer'' reverted to the studio. On May 25, 2015, Tatsunoko announced that they were developing a new ''Speed Racer'' anime series, in addition to a new licensing program to reintroduce the franchise. In August of that year, [[https://www.animenewsnetwork.com/news/2015-07-25/funimation-licenses-speed-racer-noein-anime/.90893 the original series was licensed]] by Creator/FUNimation. Funimation gave the English version of the series its first Blu-ray release (and a DVD re-release) on May 30, 2017. A collector's edition, with the original Japanese version of both the original series and the 1997 remake, will be released on November 3, 2017.

The show is notable for being one of the very first anime localized in English for US television, all the way back in 1967, following only ''Anime/AstroBoy'' and ''Manga/KimbaTheWhiteLion''. It was by far the most successful and well-known series for decades, and practically ''defined'' anime in America until around the mid-90s.

** The framerate was fixed when Funimation released the series under their belt, but their release has very noticeable audio glitches. "The Great Plan" in particular has the first part obviously time-compressed with a noticeably higher pitched audio from Speed Racer enterprises, and part 2 has a noticeable drop in the audio during the recap. Episode 5 (The Secret Engine Part 1) also suffers a noticeable audio blip in the first minute and a half of the episode. And the audio for a majority of the episodes where still pitched shifted from Enterprises.

* {{Catchphrase}}: Speed likes to exclaim "OHHH!!!" to such an extent that it becomes this. Note that this is a side effect of the rather LipLock heavy English scripts Fernandez wrote around the lazy syllable syncing of the original Tatsunoko animation.

* TitleSequenceReplacement: When Speed Racer Enterprises took over the English rights of the anime, they replaced the intro's logo with their take of it, and changed the fonts of the title cards and credits. Funimation kept a mixture of the two. The credits and title cards were kept from Enterprises, but the intro's logo was kept from Trans-Lux, minus the copyright year.

The credits and title cards were kept from Enterprises, remade for HD in a font similar to Enterprises (correcting their "Crimes" typo on Jack Grimes' credit), but the intro's logo was kept from Trans-Lux, minus the copyright year.



* WeaponizedCar: A subversion since it's technically not "weaponized" per se. The Mach 5 sported pneumatic jump-jacks (button "A"; actually for easy access to the underside of the car for maintenance), a retractable bulletproof canopy (button "D"), rotary saw blades (button "C"; for cutting wooden obstacles), traversible infrared headlights (button "E"), deployable tire armor (button "B"; actually for climbing steeper roads), underwater operational capability (button "F"), and a remote-controlled robot homing pigeon (button "G"). (And, in "The Most Dangerous Race in the World", extendable mini-wings which increased its jumping distance.)
