->''"Who put the antifreeze into my carburetor?"''

Creator/HannaBarbera created this SaturdayMorningCartoon, one of several based on the ''WesternAnimation/ScoobyDoo'' formula, for Creator/{{CBS}} in 1973. Throughout the rest of the decade, ''Speed Buggy'' rotated among the three networks' schedules.

Speed Buggy was a talking dune buggy, apparently the grandson of Chugaboom from ''WesternAnimation/ThePerilsOfPenelopePitstop''. When his mechanic, Tinker, wasn't driving him in a race, Speed Buggy fought crime with Tinker and his friends, Mark and Debbie. Speed Buggy also crossed over to ''Scooby-Doo'' and ''WesternAnimation/JohnnyBravo''.

The voice talent comprised Creator/MelBlanc as Speed Buggy, Creator/MichaelBell as Mark, Arlene Golonka as Debbie and Phil Luther Jr. as Tinker.
!!This series provides examples of:
* AnIcePerson: The titular enemies of the episode "Professor Snow and Madame Ice".
* AntiSneezeFinger: Even Speedy needed this trope once.
* BoardGame: Yep, [[http://boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/27742/speed-buggy-game it had one]]. The box art shows Mark with blond hair.
* CatchPhrase:
** Tinker's "Gol-LY!"
** Also, Speed Buggy's "Va-room-a-zoom-zoom!" and "Roger dodger!"
* {{Crossover}}:
** In the 1973 ''WesternAnimation/TheNewScoobyDooMovies'' episode "The Weird Winds of Winona", The Scooby gang solved a mystery with Speed Buggy and the gang.
** ''Scooby's All-Star WesternAnimation/LaffALympics'' -- Tinker and Speedy played for the Scooby Doobies.
** Speed Buggy appeared as the CrossoverPunchline on the ''WesternAnimation/JohnnyBravo'' episode "Bravo-Dooby-Doo".
* FollowTheLeader: Speed Buggy followed on Hanna Barbera's meddling kids trend. The main cast follows roles similar (but not exactly like) to characters from Franchise/ScoobyDoo but the plots are more akin to WesternAnimation/JosieAndThePussycats.
* HandyRemoteControl: Speed Buggy can be forcibly controlled by a special remote control of Tinker's design.
* LovableCoward: Both Tinker and Speedy to extents.
* MadScientist: Speed Buggy's typical antagonists are this trope.
* NoCelebritiesWereHarmed: Particularly given his signature catch phrase, Tinker's voice sounded exactly like the Jim Nabors character from ''Series/TheAndyGriffithShow''.
* RaceLift: In ''The New Scooby-Doo Movies'' episode crossover, "The Weird Winds of Winona", Mark's skin darkens significantly. Apparently the character was intended to be of Native American descent but you wouldn't tell by how they colored him for the whole original series. So without this AllInTheManual information, the viewer might as well assume he got a very bad suntan before the crossover.
* SentientVehicle: Speedy Himself
* ShesGotLegs: While Debbie is usually drawn in pants, in the Amazon episode, she proves she can compete with the other HB girls.
* VerbalTic: The various automotive "sputtering" Speed Buggy makes.
* WackyRacing: When Speedy is shown racing, this is to be expected.
* WeirdnessMagnet: When you are a Hanna Barbera meddling kid, this is to be expected.
