''PolePosition'' is an animated cartoon series produced by DICEntertainment. Although the cartoon shares its name with the videogame ''VideoGame/PolePosition'' by Namco, there is no other connection between the two entities. The name ''PolePosition'' is copyright of Namco and used under license, and DIC apparently ''really'' wanted to use that name.

The show featured three young sibling crime fighters called the Darretts, two of which were stunt drivers and were part of a secret government operation under the guise of the "Pole Position Stunt Show" that was run by their uncle. Pole Position itself seemed to be a way to disguise and protect top-secret scientific research. The youths inherited the role after their parents died in an unfortunate car accident. The team is equipped with two high-tech talking vehicles named "Roadie" and "Wheels".

The vehicles featured numerous hidden gadgets like water skis and hover jets. The vehicles' computers themselves are portable and can be removed from the dashboards and carried around using handles, (thus they are often referred to as "the modules"). They are characters that appeared as computer-drawn faces displayed on video screens.

!!''PolePosition'' shows examples of the following:

* CoolCar (Roadie And Wheels)
* HeyItsThatVoice (Dan was voiced by [[CaptainPlanetAndThePlaneteers David Corburn]], while Wheels was voiced by Melvin Franklin, a member of ''The Temptations'')
* IdiosyncraticEpisodeNaming (Each episode has a PunnyName derived from an AlfredHitchcock film)
* TheMentor (Dr. Zachary)
* PowerTrio
** Tess: TheHero and ActionGirl
** Dan: TheLancer and IdiotHero
** Daisy: TagalongKid and TheBumblebee
* RedOniBlueOni Roadie And Wheels - and their drivers. Tess is much more restrained and logical than her impulsive brother.
* TeamPet / NonHumanSidekick (Kuma)
