* 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.

Funimation kept a mixture of the two. 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.)

* EveryCarIsAPinto: Then again, these are high-performance race cars, and they do explode like that real life. At least in the 1950s and 60s they did.

* AlternateContinuity: Anything that isn't the original series.



** The framerate and audio was fixed when Funimation released the series under their belt, but their Blu-Ray 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. This also applies to the episodes you can watch on Funimation's site, though the first episode is the only affected on the site.

* LipLock: For the most part, it was mostly done well at the time. According to Peter FernadFernandez, the team had to make sure their lines go well with the mouth movements, and was tricky due to how they're done differently. There are a few times the characters might say something without their mouths moving, though it's not a big deal since this was also in the original version.

* MotorMouth: The dub is infamous for turning almost ''everyone'' into this. Whenever somebody does a Speed Racer parody, this is always a necessary component.

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 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 later in 2017.

* ClearTheirName: Speed is framed in "Mach 5 vs. Mach 5" when a copy of the Mach 5 was used as a getaway vehicle in the theft of the Mizmo Beam. Trixie and Spritle were able to clear Speed's name when Spritle told Inspector Detector that Speed was telling the truth.

Added DiffLines:

* GrandFinale: The final three episodes. "The Trick Race" deals with the Car Arcobatic Team getting revenge on Speed, and [[spoiler: Speed finding out whom Racer X is]]. "The Race Around the World" deals with Speed and Sparky trying to win the race, with the narrator giving a foregone conclusion after Speed won the race.

** The English episodes released by Speed Racer Enterprises are rendered badly. The framerate and audio is slightly high pitched and faster, compare to how it was made originally, which only makes it UpToEleven of the characters speaking fast than it already is. This is noticeable if you watch the original Japanese version, or you listen to some of the original soundtrack pieces. The only episodes that are not affected prior to Funimation's releases are the ones released in the 1993 video (these include the Car Hater and the Mammonth Car).
