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.
