->''"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:
* 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}}:
** ''Scooby's All-Star WesternAnimation/LaffALympics'' -- Tinker and Speedy played for the Scooby Doobies.
** ''WesternAnimation/HarveyBirdman'' -- Tinker, Mark, Debbie and Speedy appeared in an episode.
** Speed Buggy appeared as the CrossoverPunchline on the ''WesternAnimation/JohnnyBravo'' episode "Bravo-Dooby-Doo".
** A toy Speed Buggy appears in ''WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls'' episode "Gettin' Twiggy With It".
** Speed Buggy is one of the sidekicks in episode 14 of ''WesternAnimation/ScoobyDooMysteryIncorporated''. Earlier than that, Scooby and Speedy met in the 1973 ''New Scooby-Doo Movies'' episode "The Weird Winds of Winona".
* {{Expy}}: Mark, Debbie and (especially) Tinker bear a passing resemblance to [[WesternAnimation/ScoobyDoo Fred, Daphne and Shaggy]].
** Speed Buggy sounds suspiciously like [[Radio/TheJackBennyProgram the Maxwell]] if it could talk.
* HandyRemoteControl: Speed Buggy can be forcibly controlled by a special remote control of Tinker's design.
* 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, really for no reason. And whether this was a goof on the animator's part, or intentional, it's never discussed.
* SentientVehicle
* VerbalTic: The various automotive "sputtering" Speed Buggy makes.
* WackyRacing: Well, what did you expect?
