Creator/{{Nicktoons}} Network aired the entire 26-episode first season from 2008 to 2009. If the stiff, [[UsefulNotes/AdobeFlash Flash-animated]] characters look familiar, it's because Creator/AnimationCollective, probably best known for animating the Nicktoons Network's first original series, ''WesternAnimation/KappaMikey'', produced this series. It is quite possibly the most successful of the adaptations, considering the first two[[note]]''The New Adventures of Speed Racer'' and ''Speed Racer X''[[/note]] were both canceled during their runs. 95% of the characters are brand new anyway, which makes for a more original story, yet when it does get nostalgic, the tributes are [[ShownTheirWork amazingly accurate]]. The late Peter Fernandez, the producer of the dub of the original show, as well as the lyricist for the English theme song and the voice of Speed, was brought in to voice an adult Spritle.

* CerberusSyndrome: The show hits this point in season 2, especially during its second half. It gets to the point where the more casual racing seen in the first season ends up becoming scarce. Of note, the second season only has a single standalone episode and one ClipShow with the rest being 3-part arcs, compared to the first season's multiple non 3-part episodes and ''two'' whole {{Clip Show}}s.

A young man, somewhere in a desert, anxiously awaits his first day at the [[HighSchool Racing Academy]] to become a great car racer. He immediately becomes the new guy- he's always picked on, makes only two friends, and arrives with no racing car of his own...then he discovers the remains of the one and only Mach 5 in a near-by junkyard. With his rebuilt Mach 6, unusual racing talent, and mysterious lineage, the man realizes for the first time in his life that he is [[Anime/SpeedRacer Speed Racer]]'s second-born long-lost son!

The most major being Zile, now calling himself the Iron Terror, who went through a VillainousBreakdown and somehow ended up losing an arm and a leg, and who's only comforts are the thoughts of revenge against the Racer family, a robot Annalise he built, and Stan, who has been reduced to a ''BrainInAJar''. Even still, the group manages to pull through his last scheme, and even reunites the estranged Racer X back into the family, making the Racer family whole for the first time. Oh, and Zile, Stan, robo-Annalise manage to get away which will surely cause future trouble, but with the lingering implication that the newly united Racers and friends can handle it. All things considered, this Trope ends up being Subverted into a case of EarnYourHappyEnding.]]
