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

Creator/HannaBarbera created this SaturdayMorningCartoon, one of several following the lead on ''WesternAnimation/ScoobyDoo'', 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, possibly 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 competed in the ''WesternAnimation/LaffALympics''

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:
* AccidentalMisnaming: Tinker has a lot of problems remembering Gold Fever's name.
* AllThereInTheManual: While you would never be able to directly tell from this series, Mark was intended to be a Native American character even though he was still colored as such.
** In ''The New Scooby-Doo Movies'' episode crossover, "The Weird Winds of Winona", Mark's skin darkens significantly to better convey this but without this information, the viewer might as well assume he got a very bad suntan before the crossover.
* 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".
* HandyRemoteControl: Speed Buggy can be forcibly controlled by a special remote control of Tinker's design.
* AnIcePerson: The titular villains of the episode "Professor Snow and Madame Ice".
* TheLeader: Debbie is actually the leader of this group despite being the only female. The boys usually go along with her instructions. This is even lampshaded in the Amazon episode where the Amazon leader insists now Debbie can tell the men what to do, which Mark and Tinker try to explain sometimes they are lucky to get a word in edgewise.
* LostWorld: The Speed Buggy crew have their plane have issues over on in "Kingzilla". This version contains multiple giant ''Film/KingKong'' like apes.
* 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''.
* SentientVehicle: Speedy himself
** Also in "Speed Buggy Falls in Love" the Mata Cari character is a fraud driven by the antagonist's henchman. But at the end she winks to Speedy without a pilot.
* 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.
